I read voraciously, and I read just about every article on the Fool every day. I hear a lot about "due diligence", but after searching quite a bit, I don't find HOW to do this or WHAT it is.

Can anyone offer a clear procedure for going about this task? Essentially what I'm asking is how does one go about evaluating a company/stock--from the beginning to the final decision to buy or not to buy (not to get cheesy w/Will)....

I'd sure appreciate any suggestions.
