Samsung Electronics, Ltd is not a US company. It is a public company traded on the Korean and London stock exchanges. It is a subsidiary of the private Samsung Group, so a 10K is not filed with the SEC. Some of our company profile databases coverage only extends to US public companies.
These databases all provide independent overviews of public companies. Be alert to links to news, company press releases, earnings call transcripts. NetAdvantage and Mornsingstar also offer analysts recommendations.ReferenceUSA
