Why has both the "Has" and "Has Not's" explored the SEC website and XBRL? All publicly traded companies must file theirs Financials using this code. It provides everyone with the same data concerning a companies Financials. It's free! You can do what Reuters did in house in 2008 with a huge team, at your home computer. The playing field was leveled in 2009, why is no one using this?

One-on-one interviews, light-hearted narration, and quirky imagery are used to tell the full story of the stock's wild ride that most don't know. Eat the Rich: The Gamestop Saga is a fascinating recounting of everything that happened during the once-in-a-lifetime stock market event. Through detailed examinations of all the players involved -- from rookie investors who made millions or lost it all, to millionaire founders and TV personalities -- this three-part documentary details what led to the meteoric rise and fall of Gamestop's stock and everything that happened after. It's a captivating tale full of plotting, deceit, and possible collusion but it's also a crash course in the workings of the stock market. Adults and teens alike will come away with a better understanding of terms like "hedge fund," "short squeeze," and "attention economy," making this series a great pick for families with older children.
