Resources for this class

You undoubtedly have a textbook for this class (yes, I know how expensive they are, but no, sorry, the Library does not supply textbooks) - which will be your main resource for the fundamentals of "corporate finance." But sometimes it helps to have a concept explained in a different way, or you just feel you need more on this topic - here are some suggestions. All electronic, no trip to the Library necessary!

Probably the best places to research the topic of 'corporate financial policy decisions' are article databases (look for articles about the topic in general or Company X and effect of decision Y), analysts' reports (what do the equity analysts think about Company X's latest move/policy decision?), and case studies.  Here are some sources for each of those kinds of documents: 

Article Databases

Analysts' Reports

Case Studies

Note! *All Harvard Business Cases must be purchased from Harvard.* There is probably a link in Blackboard taking you right to the site for doing this. The Libraries cannot provide Harvard case studies [HBS is very proprietary].

To find out more about a particular company, OneSource, (global, public and private companies) and PrivCo (somewhat global, private companies only) are good choices:

If it seems like some research is needed on the industry in which Company X fits, here are my top three choices for that kind of research, plus a link to more options: 

The resources provided here are my "best guess" for what you might need. And it may be that everything you need is supplied to your by your professor, no need for library resources at all. But if there's something else you need, please let me know, and together we will improve this resource guide!
