Yahoo! Finance

Yahoo! Finance contains a lot of good information, and it's free to use.  Search for your company and take a look.  You will see plenty of current news stories on the main page, but look closely to see which ones are relevant to your company and which are "sponsored," i.e., poorly-disguised advertising.  The data under the Analysts tab includes earnings and growth estimates.
