The term "tearsheet" refers to the time when brokers would tear individual pages out of the S&P summary book and send them to current or potential clients. Now, with this information available online, such basic company profile information could be considered a tearsheet.

You can find this type of company information using these databases:

S&P Net Advantage.

  • Click on the Companies tab, then select Quick Search and search by company name or ticker.
  • Once you've found your company of interest, click on Tearsheet in the left-hand menu.

Thomson ONE.

  • Search for a company by name or ticker in the top left search box, then use the Company Views menu to view overviews and full reports.

Note: Thomson ONE only works using Internet Explorer.

Use Capital IQ:

  • Search for a company by name
  • The company's tearsheet should display by default. If it doesn't: navigate to Company Summary in the left side menu and click Tearsheet.

Capital IQ is available to Wharton Students in the Yablon Financial Resources Lab in Lippincott Library.  Full-time MBAs have additional access to Capital IQ via MBA Career Management.  See our FAQ titled Where Can I Get Access to Capital IQ? for complete details.
