Helpful Handouts and PowerPoints
Key Market Research Databases
These keyword-searchable databases contain in-depth market research reports on a wide range of industries and sub-industries. Each of these has its particular strengths and weaknesses, so try all that seem relevant.
Company Directories and Analysis
Search these directories for company-specific information. Some have more listings of privately held companies than others, some (most) also include industry analyses (not as in-depth as the market research databases), most include competitor lists, some are more finance and equities oriented, others are more balanced.
