The Other Cool Search Tool

Publish date:

We're actually a bit hesitant to let you in on the latest cool new search tool. It is so useful that we expect to be developing lots of items from it. Maybe we should just keep it to ourselves and wow you with our research skills.
So what is this new tool? It doesn't come from Google. Or Yahoo.
It comes from the SEC. We're talking about the "full text" search for EDGAR filings. It lets you do natural language keyword searches though the last two years of filings. The advanced search function allows you to control the search by date and to specify which forms you want.
Okay. On reflection, we guess this is a bit geeky. But here at DealBreaker HQ we've gone totally Ballmers over this thing.
