The SEC announced yesterday that EDGAR, the Commission's electronic database, has been upgraded to allow full-text searches of disclosure documents. This is good news for investors, but it's especially good news for lawyers and accountants searching for other companies that have had similar disclosure issues. The text of the SEC's press release is here. Now, those doing research in the SEC's database can use Boolean searches, wild card searches and key word searches.
