Financial Performance

For public companies, there is plenty of information available on finances through library databases and free websites such as Google Finance. Mergent Intellect provides financials on public companies and some privately-held firms. You should be aware that with very few exceptions, in the US, private firms do not have to disclose their finances to the general public. When databases such as Mergent do provide private company financials, these are usually estimates based upon models, rather than actual numbers.

Try Mergent Intellect for profit or loss information and for 52 week stock performance. Yahoo Finance is an easy way to get dividend info.


Yahoo Finance - Search for your company. Dividend information is in the Summary section. Note: not all companies pay dividends.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
