Mergent Online is the most direct resource for financial information on a public company

It contains balance sheet, cash flow statement, income statement and ratio data for the past 15 years.

Example: I need income statement, balance sheet and cash flow data for Wal-Mart.

  • Type in either wal-mart or the ticker symbol (wmt) into the box
  • Click Go
  • Select Wal-Mart
  • Click Company Financials
  • Use the pull-down menu to select the type of financial data (Balance Sheet, Income Statement or Cash Flow)
  • Use the pull-down menu to select the number of years of financial data (3, 5, 7, 10 or 15)
  • Click Refresh
  • You can download this data in Excel
