Thanks for the awesome compliments, Okapimoon!

what is your process for researching and reporting?

If you're referring to any of the numbers or metrics I keep track of, I usually follow whatever information companies release in their quarterly investor presentations.

If you're referring to the business models and how the companies make money, I try to read the 10Ks - which you told me to read on this board!

And if you're referring to the history of the companies, sometimes investor relation pages have a lot of info, but I find a lot of information can be gleaned from Wikipedia. Not the Wikipedia article itself, but the links in all the footnotes are especially invaluable. They usually link to old articles that were written on the company in question. Its good stuff!
