Companies

A company's Annual Report is a good source of information about a company. Almost all public companies make these available on their websites, generally in their Investor Information section. Private companies are more difficult to find information on – search Business News for anything published about the company. Databases listed here allow you to make lists of companies based on various criteria (eg. By industry and geography, by size, by ownership, etc.). Others provide investment analysts’ reports and/or annual reports for companies. 

See Company Information subject guide for more company research options.
