The Library is now providing access to the Morningstar Investment Research Center. The database offers analysis on 1700 stocks, 2000 mutual funds and 300 exchange traded funds (ETFs). While it is primarily designed as a tool for investors, it is also an excellent place to get quick information on a company.
The Company Stock Reports include analysis written by Morningstar’s experts, up to 10 years of financials, bond information, ratios, SEC filings and information on insider actions and institutional holders. Reports are available for the top 2000 companies but other information is available for many more.
Another useful feature is their industry returns section, which is under the markets tab. This has total return for broad industry segments and identifies the top companies in the sector, with links to more information on those companies.
You can download financial data to Excel but you cannot download pricing data. Mergent Online does have price data for downloading, however.
