Example Use Case

Wall Street Horizon’s Enchilada DataFeed provides a wealth of critical forward-looking information for investment professionals. Often a company’s behavior regarding its earnings dates can provide useful clues to performance. For example, academic research has shown that delayed earnings releases can be indicative of negative returns while earnings releases that are brought forward are more often associated with positive performance. This one example of changes in scheduled earnings releases offers investors a long-only or long-short strategy that can be used to generate outperformance. In addition to the previous example, earnings revisions information is of critical importance to options traders, as changes in release dates can move an option expiration into or out of the reporting period, with substantial impacts on implied volatility and price.

Wall Street Horizon also offers a wealth of information on future events beyond earnings related items. For Pharmaceutical companies, Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) dates and FDA Advisory Committee meetings are often tied to periods of elevated market volatility. For film companies, box-office and home video release dates are of critical importance. Wall Street Horizon provides investors with the key information about upcoming catalysts to be prepared for or take advantage of changes in market volatility.
