Looking up Ticker Symbol

  • A Google search can show a company's ticker symbol
  • Yahoo Finance Ticker Symbol Lookup (also provides full name of public companies)
  • EDGAR can be used to find ticker symbols and company filings from the SEC

Finding Company Financials

EDGAR can be used to find filings with the SEC. In these filings, check the table of contents to locate specific information. You can also 'ctrl-f' to locate specific phrases, for instance 'Corporate Social Responsibility' - it should locate the statement for you in the report.

Check the company website for 'Investor Relations' or 'Investors' sections. 

Financial reports can also be found in some company profiles. Check multiple sources to fill in gaps.
