written by reader Does there exist a complete, complete, online list of dates of forthcoming earnings reports?

By lumpified, October 14, 2016

Apologies if this has been answered countless times over the years. I can find many lists for earnings dates for NASDAQ stocks, but nothing (so far) that also includes little OTC ones.

I ask because I hold a stock ($NBEV) that I could have sold at 1.70 and re-bought at 1.55 ( or 1.60 and 1.45, etc, etc) about five times over the last 6 weeks. And the only thing that stopped me was the thought that earnings are due ”sometime soon” and it might leap while I was out…

Any help much appreciated.
Best wishes,
Ian

There is not one site that collects the earnings dates of every single company — the best one I’ve found is the Yahoo earnings calendar (https://biz.yahoo.com/research/earncal/today.html)

The rule is that companies of meaningful size (over $75 million market cap, I think) have to report within 35 days of the end of the quarter (60 days of the end of the year for the 10-K) — but there are no requirements beyond that, the fact that Alcoa always reports first and that you often see competitors in the same sector report at about the same time is just tradition, and often companies don’t officially report their full earnings on the SEC’s 10-Q at exactly the same time that they “announce” the highlights of their earnings in a press release.

Many companies announce their date in advance, but they don’t have to and many don’t (particularly tiny ones). The best guideline is “what they did last year” — odds are quite good that they’ll report within a day or two of when they reported last time around.

There are several exceptions, most applying to newer or smaller companies, and companies sometimes miss their deadlines.
