As sandman said in addition to the 10-Q's use the 10-K's. Also 8-k's containing items 2.02, 8.01, and 9.01. Those filings usually contain the press releases issued by companies when they report earning and will provide additional information (like non-gaap numbers) not found in the Q's and K's but often useful nonetheless.

The SEC filings contain all the basic financial information--statement of operations, balance sheet, statement of cash flow. What they usually won't contain are financial ratios like P/E, quick ratio, etc. You'll have to either figure that out yourself, or depend on the reliability of various financial websites. However in the Q's and K's there is always a discussion in the MD&A (Management Discussion and Analysis) of liquidity and things like dso's and margins are normally provided as well.
