Earnings reports are quarterly filings made by public companies to report their performance. Simply put, a company's earnings report shows how much money it is, or isn't making. These reports include items such as net income, earnings per share and revenue, and are important for investors of any size to be aware of as they not only show how well the company has performed over the past period but can also provide key information about the present and future financial health of the company.
TMXmoney is pleased to introduce a comprehensive Earnings Calendar for companies on all North American Exchanges. This includes confirmed and estimated announcement dates of quarterly financial results by companies listed on Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, NYSE, NASDAQ and more.
Back on the Earnings Calendar page, if you click on a date in the past, you will notice that the table is updated to reflect the actual earnings that were reported. Actual EPS appears next to the estimated EPS and a new Surprise column displays how much the actual figure differs from the estimation.
In addition to the new Earnings Calendar page, you will also notice that for certain companies with which the date has been confirmed, a notification alert displays underneath the price on the detailed quote page. This displays the date of the upcoming earnings release and clicking on it will take you to the full calendar. It is a useful tool to help keep track of important dates from many of the large Canadian and American companies. The alert stays on for two weeks before and after the date so that you can plan ahead and also check recent results quickly.
The new earnings calendar is a useful tool to keep track of important dates for the companies you need to track and also use past data for comparisons. Start using it today!
