The US Securities and Exchange Commission has launched software called Financial Explorer on the SEC website to help investors analyse the financial results of public companies.

Financial Explorer lets investors automatically generate financial ratios, graphs, and charts depicting important information from financial statements. Information including earnings, expenses, cash flows, assets, and liabilities can be analysed and compared across competing public companies. Financial Explorer uses financial information provided to the SEC as interactive data in eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL). Click to Launch Financial Explorer.
