Public company databases - Find financial information databases such as Mergent, NetAdvantage & Factiva. Remember to use the correct parent company name (e.g. Pepsico not Pepsi)

News - Find articles about products, strategy, brand management, and exectuves in article databases such as Business Source Premier, ABI/Inform, Factiva, and on the web.
