Choosing a Company

Your company must be in the top 100 of the Fortune 500 list. The company you choose must also be a public company. To find out if it is public, there are a few strategies you can use:

  • See if the company website has an 'Investor Relations' section - this means it is public
  • Look the company up in EDGAR from the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Sometimes, a quick Google search can tell you if the company is public

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)

Finding News Articles

The company you choose needs to have been in the news since June 1, 2022. You can find news articles in the following sources, as well as Google News

Finding Company Profiles

It is important to try to find company profiles that have been published within the past two years. Tables of contents can help you find specific company information. It is also important to check multiple sources as some will fill in gaps other sources do not cover.
