Hello Fools!

I was just about to dig into some investing research when I found out that freeedgar.com is no longer being supported. Are there other free sources for regularly updated annual/quarterly reports? The Fool seems to lag on these.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

When freeedgar went away, I shifted myself over to the SEC itself. http://edgar.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html is a good place to start...

Hope this helps,
-Chuck

Edgarscan is another place to look:
http://edgarscan.pwcglobal.com/servlets/edgarscan

PWC's formatting is better than the FreeEdgar site.

Regards,
Calpinist

Other's have mentioned EDGAR and 10kwizard, but Morningstar is often overlooked. Their link to SEC filings will redirect you to the appropriate EDGAR search page so the filings won't have any lag.

Morningstar also harvests financial data from 10-Ks. I've written web queries to pull these tables directly into Excel to populate my spreadsheet.
