Recent academic research has shown that tracking changes to earnings announcement dates can help investors generate additional alpha or manage risk in their portfolios.

This time-stamped alert is updated every five minutes and contains confirmations, reschedules and revisions to upcoming earnings release dates and confirmation status.

- NEW Same store sales announcement date if disclosed in the next earnings date.
- NEW SEC filing due date if new earnings date is in proximity.

- Preliminary earnings announcement dates.
“Since 2006, our clients have favored DateBreaks for alerts to earnings date changes that may impact trading strategies – and perhaps even more important in the current market conditions – risk strategies,” said David Francoeur, VP of Wall Street Horizon. “Our latest enhancements are based on client feedback to include additional color and detail to the data such as correlation between events.”
“By providing more granular detail like comparing earnings date revisions to each company’s historical reporting trend, I am armed with the information I need to adjust my positions immediately,” said Wall Street Horizon client at leading Chicago-based options trading firm.
