Just thinking out loud. I have an small amount of stock
in a company that's been dropped from the NASDAQ for
not holding a minimum price. This got me thinking about
how to research a company that's off the boards. Is
there a way to check out the performance of a company
that's privately held? I know some companies have an
investor's office and some have not. I want to research
a company that I know doesn't have an investor's
contact. Any Ideas?
Another question I have is: I wonder if I were to
change jobs, get hired at a new company, wouldn't I
want to look at the companies financial statements
and evaulate whether the company was sound and the
financial statements legit? How could I do this
without sounding like I'm not trusting that my salary
and "profit sharing" are equitable? I certainly
wouldn't want to take a new position with a company
that didn't include a financial statement with my year
end "profit sharing." I always worked freelance and
have never come up against this situation before.
I would enjoy some experienced feedback.
Thanks, B.
