A word to the wise
I think it's a good idea to keep an eye on those SEC filings, maybe now more than ever (not that it's ever NOT been a good idea). I have SEC alerts set up that email me for a slew of companies that I follow regularly, and here lately, I have found some interesting tidbits that haven't been press released in 8-Ks released after market close. Like today I found an interesting little tidbit on Abercrombie: http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2008/09/17/easy-come-easy-go-at-abercrombie.aspx
News agencies did pick that one up as well, but looking around other SEC filings gives other interesting background too.
Oh, and a good time to be snooping through 8-Ks is on Fridays after market close, too. Just thought I'd pass on the word that I think that in these ugly times, it's a good way to keep afoot of what's going on with your companies (in particular those 8-K current report filings!).
