Earnings season begins on Wednesday with Alcoa's (AA) report. Below is a chart showing the number of earnings reports by day through the end of November for Russell 3,000 stocks. As you can see, things don't really pick up until late October and early November.
With a relatively small number of companies set to report over the next two weeks, now is the time to prepare yourself for the deluge of daily reports that will hit later this month.
So how do you get prepared? Bespoke has you covered with multiple earnings-related offerings.
Our Interactive Earnings Season Calendar contains a list of all of the stocks set to report earnings this season sorted by both date and stock. This is not just any list, though. Our calendar contains key earnings data for each stock, including its historical earnings and revenue beat rates, guidance trends, and finally -- how the stock typically moves on earnings. The calendar is sent out in both PDF and Excel formats. With the Excel version, you can sort and filter the calendar in any way you wish.
The full version of our Q3 earnings calendar is only available to Bespoke Premium and Bespoke Institutional clients. But you can see a sample of the Q3 calendar by clicking here. In the sample version, the alphabetically sorted sheet contains a number of stocks with "A" tickers, while the sheet sorted by date includes stocks set to report over the next week. The full version of this quarter's calendar contains report dates for more than 2,250 stocks set to report between now and early November! Subscribe to Bespoke Premium or Institutional today for access.
An even more more expansive database that we offer is our Interactive Earnings Report Database. This database contains detailed information for every company's quarterly earnings reports going back to 2001. Unlike the Earnings Calendar, which is available to Bespoke Premium members, our Earnings Report Database is only available to Bespoke Institutional members.
Below is a snapshot of the earnings information that you can pull up for any stock using our database. The example below is Netflix (NFLX), which we have earnings data for since it IPOd. As shown in the table, you can quickly track how often NFLX beats or misses EPS or revenue estimates, how often it raises or lowers guidance, any seasonal earnings trends that show up, and finally -- how the stock typically reacts to better or worse than expected earnings.
Our Interactive Earnings Report Database comes in Excel format, so you can easily enter in a stock ticker and it will pull up its quarterly information for you automatically. Along with the ability to query for any stock, you can also sort and filter the master list of all stocks. This gives you the ability to run numerous back-tests on various earnings outcomes to develop trading strategies during earnings season. We have a number of Institutional clients that use the database religiously for this purpose.
This database is updated each quarter once earnings season ends, so Institutional clients always have an up-to-date version. To check out its layout, you can view and interact with a very limited version of it here.
