How do I research a company I may want to buy shares in?

Q: Apart from what I read in the business pages of the newspaper, what other public information is available about companies? Where do I find it?

A: You can get sharemarket information from all over the place, it just depends on what sort of information you are after. The fact that you are visiting ShareChat means that you know how to look for information. ShareChat is full of news stories and links. It also has investors' views on the NZ and overseas markets, so you are off to a great start. Search the ShareChat archives for historical information on the company you are interested in.

If you would like to get annual reports for any listed company you can ring the NZSE and request copies. You can read the NBR or Unlimited magazine. You can ring and talk to your broker or an independent financial advisor. If you use a full service broker, you can ring and see if they have any research available on the company that you are interested in.
