You probably won't be able to find a lot of financial information on specific companies in any daily newspapers -- they basically track share price movement and trading volume.

A couple of things I would recommend if you are looking at smallcaps:

-- Start here, with the 11th Step to Foolish Investing:
-- Try a screen, like the Foolish 8 (you can buy it from FoolMart here on the site. I'm sure there are others commercially available, though I don't know much about screens. They can give you useful starting points for further research.
-- Read the message boards. Here at the Fool, we have boards for specific industries where you can discuss ideas with knowledgeable folks. You might also want to look at general boards, like our "Your Favorite Stocks"
-- Visit the Workshop and look for ideas there.
-- Read newspapers/magazines and so on for ideas, then follow up with your own research. There are also specialty publications available, I'm sure, that focus on smallcaps.

I'm sure there are other places to go; those are just the ones I could think of offhand.

Always remember to follow up any tip or idea you may recieve -- from any source, including Fools and this site -- with your own research, though. Good luck and happy hunting!
