Only about half of corporate Web sites include quarterly financial reports, a study has found.

Investor's Business Daily reported that research firm, Public Affairs Group, found that out of 310 'corporate' Web sites, less than half the sites had vision statements, and only a quarter included speeches from executives.

A spokesman said: 'This is not a 'coolest sites' list . . . Most sites have neat graphics and good product information. Not as many have solid corporate information.' The research firm said the best company sites were Microsoft, IBM and US telecom firm BellSouth.
