# How to find out where a public company spends money? [on hold]

Occasionally I will see articles about how Company X spends x dollars on A, and Company Y spends y dollars on B.

Here is an example form today: Apple spends more than \$30 million on Amazon’s cloud every month

Where does this data come from? Where does it get disclosed? Suppose I wanted to learn more about how a public company spends its money. Where can I do so? The financial reports I read from companies just show amounts and categories but not vendor names.

• “according to people familiar with the arrangement” is usually a good hint that this is “internal only” information that someone chose to disclose when they probably shouldn’t have. Otherwise, this would be available in public filings such as 10Q. – Helin Apr 23 at 3:36
