I thought this month I’d pass on a couple of web sites of interest:
º Many of you may already be familiar with the SEC’s EDGAR database. EDGAR (which stands for the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system) “performs automated collection, validation, indexing, acceptance, and forwarding of submissions by companies and others who are required by law to file forms with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.” EDGAR can be found at www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
Any U.S. company with at least 500 shareholders and assets of at least $10 million is required to file registration statements, periodic reports, and other forms electronically through EDGAR. If you’re looking for information on a public company, this site should be a valuable destination.
º Everyone has a favorite site or two that indexes links on the web, but here’s another one I just discovered recently that you should check out. It’s called the Digital Librarian (www.digital-librarian.com), and it is a web site designed by a librarian with a wide range of links to everything from business and finance to Judaism to Statistics. The site also emphasizes academic topics.
