How can I look up financial information about a public company?

Help From EDGAR

You can see any electronic documents that United States companies that file with the SEC relatively simply by using the SEC EDGAR searchable online database. Available from the SEC web site, EDGAR can search by company name and latest filings. You can also find company and mutual fund prospectuses and lots more information. The SEC has even recently begun using RSS feeds to allow anyone to be notified when a company of interest files new data. So you don't even have to go to the web site looking for new information - it can come directly to you.
