At the time this book was written, the US Securities and Exchange Commission still supported Edgar a depository of corporate accounting filings. Log onto Edgar at, click on “Search for Company Filings,” click on “Companies and Other Filers,” and finally, select two companies in the same industry (either your instructor’s choice or your choice) so that you can compare various financial data. Note that you can select either “text” or “html” formats. Compare these formats to Figure 2-1. Are they similar? Looking at either image, can you download the financial information into a spreadsheet? Can you easily do financial comparisons such as ratio analysis? What do you have to do if you want to make financial comparisons?
