Because of Regulation Fair Disclosure, during quarterly conference calls, public companies often disclose their past quarter's performance, and they usually discuss their future outlook/initiatives. These calls are transcribed, and are known as Earnings Conference Calls or Analyst Calls.
In addition to the databases below, transcripts or recordings are often made available on the Investor Relations page of the company's website.
For public companies involved in a merger/acquisition, the parties' SEC Filings and Earnings Conference Calls, leading up to and shortly after the event, can provide helpful insights about each party's motives.
In particular, pay attention to an SEC filing called the DEFM14A, if one exists.
(Caveat: A large company that's acquiring a small target might not release a DEFM14A.)
