Doing company research requires a multi-prong attack. It’s not only a straightforward financial analysis, but also includes a long list of management checklists. The following guide covers resources that will help you uncover how all kinds of companies function, whether they are public, private, or not-for-profit.

Use these research aids to locate books, articles, case studies, special publications and other analysis covering:

  • Company profiles
  • Names of officers
  • Financial statements
  • Company histories
  • Industry news
  • Company products and operations
  • Major competitors
  • Other related topics

Since private companies aren't required to publish as much data as public companies, you probably won't be able to find out as much about them. The links on this page aren't solely for private companies, but can list both public and private companies.
