Kresge Library News: Business Week Company Insight Center

Business Week Company Insight Center

Business Week, along with Capital IQ, has created a new resource on their site called Company Insight Center.

This free resource provides basic company information, stock price charts, earnings reports & estimates and a wealth of people information for 42,000 public companies in the U.S. and abroad and 320,000 private companies, including executive compensation. Of course, the private company data is a bit more limited. You can easily see who is on a company's board and the connections that person has to other boards. You also get to see the BusinessWeek rankings for a company, including the BusinessWeek 50, the InfoTech 100, and the Innovation 25.

Some nice charting features are included on the site, such as a company comparison on stock price, events and competitors. The one thing that is missing is the ability to download this data from the site.

The search features on the site are limited to a basic keyword search or company name browse.
