Company Profile

As you're looking through the websites that can provide a company profile, accuracy is a must. Look for industry leading sites like www.geoinvesting.com that use accurate information, but condense it so that you can get an idea of what you're really looking at. As you become more familiar with the industry and with the terms used, you'll find that these types of websites are instrumental in remaining informed on stocks. As you look for a site, ask yourself the following questions.  Is There Stock Information on This Company Profile? One of the most important things is getting accurate and comprehensive information on a company's stock performance. This doesn't just mean reading a list of numbers. You will actually need to understand the stock performance in context.

This means that the information should provide not only the numbers involved in a stock's history, but the key information that puts it into context, such as other stock's performance in the same time period, as well as the overall highs and lows.  How Comprehensive is the Company Profile? Finding the right website can be tricky because you have two goals that can seem contradictory : You want comprehensive information, but you want it in a condensed format that's easy to read and understand. The documents that should be compiled are things like profit and lost statements, financial statements, previous earnings and the future outlook. You don't want to have to read through all of these documents, but you do want to choose a site that's taken them into consideration. 

Is This Site Easy to Use? Saving yourself the headache and time of going through each company profile yourself can be a huge relief, but not if it comes at the expense of having to deal with a website that's difficult to use or confusing. Look for websites with clean information and easy to understand menus. Search functions can be a big asset to. Make sure you're choosing a website that provides a method of contact in case you need further assistance.  How Up To Date is This Company Profile? Getting up to date information is essential for two main reasons. First of all, if you're using a site that's outdated, you might buy a stock based on performance that is simply no longer accurate. On the other hand, you might not buy a stock because you didn't have access to information that would have shown you it was a good buy. No website that provides stock information is going to be helpful if it's not up to date.
