Private or Public?

Do you know the difference?

Private companies

  • do not sell stocks to the general public
  • are not required to share financial information

This can make it difficult to research private companies.

Public companies

  • sell stocks to the public in the stock market
  • are required to file financial reports to the SEC

This makes is easier to research public companies.
