Five useful places to find financial data online

Emerginvest: it provides outstanding financial data about companies that are operating outside the U.S. Once you register for the site, it displays a "heat map" detailing the performance of markets around the world. That's just a starting point for what is a deluge of financial information about companies operating in over 120 countries. That data includes news, market overviews, sector data, individual company performance, analysis, and much more;

Investopedia: if you want to research stocks and mutual funds, while learning about them, Investopedia is the best place to do it;

StockCharts: it doesn't just provide historical share price data in its charts, it provides a full solution for analyzing the value of a stock. Along with price changes, it can display key indicators of financial health like Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, Relative Strength Index, Moving Averages, and Volume. It even lets you embed those graphs into your own site, social network profile, or presentation if you want to share the information with others;

ValueEngine: If you want to know what a stock is really worth and you don't want to do the heavy lifting with a service like StockCharts, ValueEngine is the perfect alternative. There's only one catch: you'll need to pay $199.95 per year or $19.95 per month to do it;

Yahoo Finance-Combining news, analyst opinions, key ratios, and charts with an outstanding design that makes it simple to navigate from one security to another, Yahoo Finance is set apart as the most useful financial research tool on the Web. Full article from Webware
