Carnegie Mellon’s financial business databases received a boost recently with two acquisitions. One is Mergent WebReports, the web version of the venerable Moody’s (later Mergent) Corporate Manuals: a classic source for corporate information since 1909, available here from those ancient times to the present. It has detailed descriptions of all significant public companies worldwide, past and present: financial statements, histories, properties, mergers and acquisitions, operations, subsidiaries, officers and directors, stocks and bonds for over 35,000 companies in over 100 countries.
The other is a significant upgrade to our Mergent Online database, adding equity and industry reports, private companies, historical stock prices, earnings estimates, executive biographies, and 15 years of financials to an already robust online source for company data. These two databases are linked, so much of the content is mutually accessible.
