New Financial Metrics Filters added to RBsourceFilings

The Financial Metrics will help users focus on disclosures by firms in specific size ranges or financial situations. For example, to search Large Cap Firms, select 10 Billion Market Cap or greater. For Microcap, $50 million - $250 million, etc.

The Financial Metrics are updated weekly based on information in the most recent SEC disclosure filings.

To review this feature, run a search from the main search window or from the EDGAR Quick Search Widget. After your initial search results appear, the Financial Metrics filter panel will be available for further refinement. Select the desired ranges from the drop down menus and hit APPLY. The filters can be applied separately, or in tandem, to further enhance search results.
