ABSTRACT
The article examines how the availability of the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) filings in a digital format coupled with the distributive capabilities of the Internet have produced an opportunity to deliver and receive SEC information in new ways. Particular attention is given to how the EDGAR database (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval) would aid in receiving information on any company. Content analysis of edgar-online.com is provided. An examination of the ways it is easier to gain a competitive advantage is also included.
