The best authorities for financial data are probably the company?s own
website and the SEC Edgar website.
The company?s own Investor Relations page has no earnings reports or
annual reports for FEKY.PK (the .PK indicates a pink-sheet traded
stock) as yet:
In a case like this, it?s best to write to the corporate secretary or
treasurer to request financial information such as quarterly reports;
annual reports; and dates for anticipated releases of financial data ?
and ask to be put on the mailing list if you believe that you?ll have
a continuing interest in the company.
As a new investor, you should also be aware of the SEC?s EDGAR
database, which holds all of the key documents for U.S.-registered
public companies. Most companies file all reports electronically
these days and there are records of filings. FaceKey did file a
registration statement last fall for a share offering, though the SEC
database indicates that it was a paper submission. Here is the search
facility for EDGAR and you can enter FaceKey (or any other firm)
SEC EDGAR Search Facility
In cases where companies are not filing electronically, you can obtain
copies of the paper statements at the SEC regional offices, where
information is copied onto microfiche:

Rather than define financial terms for you, I?m going to suggest two
Merrill Lynch publications on finance and investing. The best is a
document that they company has refined continually over the past 30
years and it includes definitions of all of the key financial ratios.
You can download and print ?How to Read a Financial Report? here for
?How to Read a Financial Report?
A newer publication (also linked on the Merrill Lynch page) is the
?Guide to Understanding Financial Reports,? which includes some
updated information on definitions of financial terms. Accounting
standards are continually changing on definitions of terms (even of
?sales?) and this newer guide updates that information.
