Where Should I Begin?

The amount of information available, as well as searching for and sifting through that information, can be overwhelming.  Use this guide as you would a map; it'll help you find what you're looking for more efficiently.

A good place to start, particularly for company information is NetAdvantage or Mergent.  Found under the company tab, NetAdvantage provides data on over 85,000 companies.

For industry information, begin with either Mergent or NetAdvantage, found under the Industry tab.

Ratio data for industries is best found in RMA Annual Statement Studies, found under the Ratios tab.  Company ratio data may be found in Mergent, also found under the Ratio tab.
