ECNM Graziadio and SPP Economics Research: Company Financial Information

This guide will provide data and scholarly resources for students studying and researching the field of economics.

What to Expect When Searching for Company Financial Data?

Company financial information is readily available when companies are publicly traded. Regulations from the Securities and Exchange Commission SEC ensure that public companies disclose their financial data. Because privately held companies are not subject to the same rules as publicly traded companies, there is usually far less financial information available. 

  • Use the boxes (see below) for Company Profiles and Company Directories for basic information about companies.
  • Use the separate pages created for in-depth financial information on companies. The Publicly Traded page will provide search tips on which library resources are best for publicly traded companies and The Privately Held page which will contain some data for privately held companies. They are resources available to you as current Pepperdine students.
