Planning Your Research

Sometimes, research related to a specific company may require you to learn about that company's equity structure, debt obligations, and financial performance.  For a public company (a company whose shares trade on one or more stock exchanges), this information is often available in SEC filings. Research steps should include the following:

  • Determine the relevant company.  Where there are multiple related companies, look for a publicly owned parent.
  • Identify the relevant time period
  • Identify the type of filing, if known (see the SEC's Index to Forms)
  • Consult resources for SEC filings (below)
