Question: Where do I find current news about a company?

Answer


News about companies can be found in may resources. In addition to resources noted below, it is often helpful to identify small local papers for news.  Many company websites will include a link to news, however, this will be news that the company wants to promote.

Go to the Virtual Business Library's Company & Financial Information section for links to useful resources including links to the following suggested resources.  

Business Source Complete: There are a number of search options including product name, company entity, and publication.  

Factiva: You can run a free text search or choose the Companies/Markets tab and search for a company.  Tabs for News, Latest News, Web News and Key Developments are provided as part of the company snapshot.

Nexis Uni: You can run a free text search and narrow the search by selected data items such as a timeline, negative news, and geography.

You may want to consult the NYU guide on US Company and Industry Information for details on the resources above as well as other resources.
