Top Volatility Inducing Earnings Events:
Earnings Date Status refers to whether the company has confirmed their date, "Unconfirmed" indicates the date has either been a) gathered by our data collection process but is still considered tentative by the company or b) estimated by our data analysts based on historical trends.
Need the next earnings date?
For firms that only need earnings announcement information, the earnings calendar features upcoming earnings calendar dates - confirmed or forecasted, with the expected timing of announcements. This includes preliminary earnings announcements.

DateBreaks- Earnings Date Revisions
Institutional investors increasingly rely upon earnings date revisions to help formulate trading and risk strategies. Recent academic research has shown that tracking changes to earnings announcement dates can help investors generate additional alpha or mitigate risk in their portfolios.
We recently profiled 12 companies in Q4 with off-trend earnings dates which can serve as a foreshadowing of what an upcoming report may reveal, and therefore be an indicator of financial health. View the blog post showing that 60% of companies performed as our data indicated.
Need to know earnings confirmation timing even earlier in the cycle?
This new product focuses on the timing of an earnings date confirmation, using historical data to project an expected confirmation date and normal range that enables the identification of:
- Companies that have not yet confirmed an earnings date and are materially late compared to their historical trends/behaviors.
- When an earnings date is announced whether that confirmation timing is earlier or later than the company's historical average of the same quarter.
Firms reporting earlier than usual exhibit positive abnormal returns. Likewise, companies that confirm later than average typically exhibit negative abnormal returns. By incorporating confirmation dates at an earlier part of the earnings timeline, traders can have a preliminary look at how a company is performing.
Our new whitepaper, "The Earliest Indicator of Corporate Earnings: Using Confirmation Timing for Trading Signals", explores this concept and features multiple use cases of off-trend confirmation timing events.

Need archived data?
Academics frequently use Wall Street Horizon archived data for their studies. For example, using Wall Street Horizon earning dates, the paper Famous Firms, Earnings Clusters, and the Stock Market finds that each quarter has a handful of days with the potential to have an impressive cluster of important firms announcing earnings more-or-less simultaneously in either the pre-open or post-close period.
Wall Street Horizon's historical event data are the industry's largest, most detailed and most accurate archiving of this type of event data. We archive data as we publish it and offer history corresponding to the above data. For detailed information, contact us.
