Dumb question about the sec.gov site
« on: January 11, 2017, 09:09:02 AM »
https://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html

When I enter the symbol on the fast search box, the url contains owner=exclude part, and there will be no form 4 results included. Each time I have to manually remove that part of the url and refresh the page again to see form 4s.
Do you know a more convenient way to search for filings?

You could also try the below depending on what you are searching:

https://searchwww.sec.gov/EDGARFSClient/jsp/EDGAR_MainAccess.jsp

Click "advanced search"

Thank you!
It is exclude by default and there is no way to change the default to include.

Try setting up a custom search engine for Chrome / Firefox: https://glennchan.wordpress.com/2015/11/22/edgar-tips-and-tricks/
Make sure you change "owner=exclude" to "owner=include" in step 4 (for Chrome).

Works like a charm for me. I just type "sec" followed by a space in my address bar and I can then type the ticker, hit enter and it will bring up the SEC filings for that stock.

I check your dumb question and raise you: Why are you looking at form 3 and 4?
