If given the stock market ticker symbol for a company, how would you research basic financial information about that company?
First I would go to Yahoo finance and key in the symbol. That will display the basic financial data for the company. Next I would go to Edgar and read the 10k filings for the company and I would access the S&P stock report for the company from my brokers web site. I would do a internet search to see if the company has a web site and I would then visit the web site to see what the company has to say about itself. That can be very infomative. I would then go to one of the technical data web sites and research the stock action of the company to determine whether its is under accumulation or distribution.
I would then make my decision based on that information and the general portfolio makeup of my investments.
