New package: GetEdgarData

Introduction As of 2019-10-31, this package is discontinued and will not longer be updated. See this post for more details about the alternative, package simfinR. Every company traded in the US stock market must report its quarterly and yearly documents to the SEC and the public in general. This includes its accounting statements (10-K, 10-K) and any other corporate event that is relevant to investors. Edgar is the interface where we can search for a company’s filling information. By looking up a company’s CIK code, one can find all previous filling information.
