First of all, I would never even consider not looking at or using the information contained in the Q's simply because 1. they are "unaudited" or 2. they do not contain every single footnote a 10-K might. They still contain the MDA, they still contain the Sarbox certs, and they still contain financial information which is rarely materially different from the cumulative information in the K. Keep in mind, if there were a material difference in the information contained in the Q's, the company would be required to file amended 10-Q's aka 10-Q/A's.How I use the Q's in any analysis is to construct a spreadsheet for each company I follow closely. Include a column for TTM figures and simply update the spreadsheet every quarter. It's not that much work once you get it set up. Once the K comes out, I use it to update whatever is not provided by the Q's.
