Where Do You Go to Find a Company's Report of Earnings?

The Nasdaq website offers income statements for publicly traded companies that detail companies' net profits or net losses. An income statement details the total revenue and operating expenses generated by a company over a specific period of time, typically three months or annually.

A publicly traded company is required to file a quarterly report and an annual report with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These documents include information such as net income, net sales and earnings per share.

A publicly traded company is also required to submit a 10-Q for the first three fiscal quarters and a 10-K annually to the SEC. These documents provide far more details than quarterly and annual reports and provide a wealth of information regarding a company's financial state.
