Search SEC Filings with EDGAR


Looking for information about a company’s finances or operations? Check out the Security Exchange Commission’s (SEC) publicly available database, EDGAR. EDGAR provides access to documents filed by companies under the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, and the Investment Company Act of 1940. This includes company annual reports (10-K), quarterly reports (10-Q), and current reports (8-K). Filings may be available for many other corporate disclosures, including but not limited to executive compensation, shareholder meetings, insider transactions, and public offerings.  

The EDGAR full text search gives access to filings since 2001. Researchers can search by keyword, ticker, company name, CIK number, or an individual’s name. Under “more search options” filters are available for filing category, date range, and principal executive office location.

The search results are sorted by date and can be filtered by entity, form, and principal executive office location. For each result, the form type, filed date, reporting date, and filing entity/person are listed. 

The SEC also has an archive of historical EDGAR documents for users who need older filings that are not available from the main EDGAR search page. The archive search allows searching of filings from 1994 through 2022. All but the most recent day’s filings are available. Full text searching of filings is not avialble in the archive search. The archive searches across the header information contained in each document. 

For more information about EDGAR, see the FAQ page. Looking for additional resources on securities law? See our Securities Law research guide or Ask us!
