Downloads sec xbrl filings

Project Description

A small python library which downloads companies 10-K and 10-Q filings from the SEC’s Edgar website. The Edgar site maintains monthly RSS feeds describing each of the filings. A cli tool called sec_edgar_download supports downloading and indexing, in a local sqlite3 database, the RSS files; as well as downloading specific 10-K and 10-Q filings.
