Wall Street Horizon Launches New Earnings Date Revision Service, DateBreaks 3.0

Thu April 30, 2020

Expands on Institutional Investors Incorporating Wall Street Horizon Corporate Event Data to Better Anticipate Short-Term Volatility 

BOSTON, MA – April 30, 2020 - Wall Street Horizon, the leading provider of market-moving corporate event data, today announced a new version of DateBreaks, its flagship earnings date revision service. Originally launched in 2003, Wall Street Horizon continues to be the only data provider that offers a data feed capturing changes to earnings release dates and content to help institutional investors find alpha and mitigate risk. 

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.

By keeping clients apprised of critical market-moving event revisions, DateBreaks data empowers financial professionals to take advantage of – or avoid – short-term volatility in a given equity or its underlying option. DateBreaks delivers a time-stamped alert and contains confirmations, revisions, and pattern recognition detail related to earnings release dates.

Highlights of the new DateBreaks 3.0 service include:

  • NEW A statistical measurement of how an earnings date (confirmed or revised) compares to the reporting company’s 5-year trend for the same quarter. 

  • NEW A forecasted earnings date confidence indicator contrasts a current earnings date to a company’s historical patterns.

  • NEW A “days changed” indicator tracks how many days an earnings date has moved compared to the first earnings date projected for that quarter.

“DateBreaks 3.0 provides traders and asset managers with unique and timely corporate event data they can’t get any place else,” said David Francoeur, VP of Wall Street Horizon. “Our latest enhancements are based on extensive institutional feedback requesting increased granular transparency to better anticipate volatility.”

DateBreaks 3.0 is available to institutional investors as a no-cost trial: click here.
