A steadily increasing dividend payout is viewed as a strong indication of a company's continuing success. Institutional traders and investors may need to track dividend dates, amounts and status by the seconds, minutes or hours. This is how Wall Street Horizon has structured its delivery - it's all about getting the data at the speed you need. Options for delivery include: GUI, API, XML data feeds or low-latency streaming feed.

Investigating multiple events closely in relationship to one another can have a strong impact on a company's corporate financial health. Observing the information pre-event, during the event and post-event and how they interact is critical to understand how events relate to your trading and risk strategies. For example, our most popular bundle captures the following components covering 9,000 publicly traded companies worldwide.
