What website is useful to get more information on a company?

Where can I go to get information on various companies that I'm looking to invest in? Is there a website with a consolidated list? one that's unbiased?

Nothing is better than the Investor Relations of the company itself. Take the time to go through the quarterly/annual report. Other websites are basically just point of views. Reading thought the reports yourself also helps your give you a stronger conviction.

If you are taking about financial data wise, morningstar is a good option, however I would personally vet through with the reports as well.

Best is to look at individual company presentation slides where it gives you a quick glance on what is happening in the company. Usually if you dont understand the slides, walk away.

For information, I would suggest going directly to the company's investor relations and retrieve their quarterly and annual reports.

You can type into google "XXX company annual report/investor presentation/seeking alpha". For Singapore companies, you can head straight to SGX directly :)

For something that is unbiased, go straight to the source ie. the company's investor relations site to download the past year annual reports and quarterly earnings report.

The analyst reports you see will always be biased one way or another. Also, their view might be different from your view.

Even for Bloomberg, sometimes that data that is shown is not in line with what is shown on the annual report.

As such, I would recommend going to the source.

Hi YC,

No short cut here, look at the annual report of the company.

These are audited and cannot be wrong (we won't talk about fraud here)

You can of course find summarized data on several websites such as SGX stock screener, or investing.com, but I would use those as a filter to find ideas, and then the company's annual report as a way to dive into the details.

One of the stock screeners I know of is Jitta ( https://www.jitta.com/ ). It has a library of stocks from many countries with their respective financial statements. They have their own proprietary scoring system (Jitta Line and Jitta Score) to determine if the stock is worth investing or not. Their scoring system was inspired by Value Investing strategy, which is to buy a wonderful company at a fair price.

Depends on what form of data you're looking at.

Reitdata.com provides figures of each reit, but if you're looking at more qualitative data then you'd have to look at the company's annual reports

Hi Yc, I usually go to the various companies' investor relations website to get information such as annual reports, etc. You can just Google "company XYZ investor relations website".

For aggregated financial statements, you can check out SGX Stocks Facts for local stocks or Morningstar for US stocks.

For sgx listed, sgx website itself will be a good source. If not the investor relations site for each company will work as well.

For US listed companies, I look to yahoo finance or morningstar if I wanna dig for more information.

The company's website itself where you can get access to annual reports and quarterly earnings report is best. Or go to SGX to read about the general description of the company.

If you are looking for reviews, you are subject to the individual's interest in a certain company, and may inevitably result in some bias.

Www.valuebuddies.com

They have great info on the many companies listed in SGX and Hong Kong

Otherwise read the annual reports of the company you are interested in by surfing the SGX company announcement website

Was introduced morningstar a few weeks ago and never looked back. It was able to provide 10 year financial info, and calculated key ratios within a single glance. no additional cost required for using the platform. This is definitely I start with before diving deep into the annual reports and financial statements.
