DateBreaks 3.0 - 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.

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 is a time-stamped alert and contains confirmations, revisions, and pattern recognition detail related to earnings release dates. Highlights 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.
