Conference Call Transcripts

Conference calls are substantive conversations between company's upper management and investment banking analysts covering topics including:

  • Earnings announcements
  • Significant events (e.g. auditor changes, restatement of financials, change in management)
  • Changes in strategic or operational direction. 

These are recorded and transcribed, and made available from various sources, including company web sites. Companies don't always keep a backfile of these on their websites, so these sources can be a good alternative.
