Searching EDGAR

As web technologies have evolved, so has the sophistication of the EDGAR database.  With the EDGAR database, you can:

Search for company reports since 1994 using a convenient search form . . . 

         The following parameters are allowed:

  • Company Name

  • Ticker Symbol

  • State

  • Country

  • SIC Code [Note:  NAICS is not used]

Search the full text of company filings from the past 4 years using a search form ("advanced" recommended) that allows searching by type of report . . .

Search the header fields of company documents (except the most recent day) using Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT, etc) using this search form . . .

Review a list of only the most recent filings . . .

The SEC also provides both quick and in-depth tutorials for how to search EDGAR.
