analyst calls

What are the Analysts Asking?


If you don't have investment bank analysts reports at your fingertips, how can you find out what the analysts think about companies? Check out the quarterly analyst calls. These conference calls are held with the securities analysts covering the company. The company reports on their earnings and other developments. There is also a Q&A section so you will have the opportunity to find out what the analysts want to focus on and what questions they have for the C-suite. The SEC requires the calls be open to the public and companies post the recording on their investor relations pages. Sometimes the calls are linked from the events calendar. The recordings are freely available, but you will need a subscription if you want the transcripts of the calls so you can read them and search by keyword. LexisNexis has the transcripts in Financial Disclosure Wire (FDWire).
