Given that earnings season has begun, our next activity will be dealing with earnings calls. Earnings calls are an important part of releasing quarterly earnings. In this call, management speaks about the performance of the previous quarter and provides guidance for the coming quarter + entire financial year.
Analysts from various financial institutions attend the call and a Q&A session takes place between management and analysts.
Quarterly earnings and the earnings call impacts the stock price.
For our next exercise, please attend an earnings call for a company of your choice: then take notes on a point/fact you learned from the earnings call in the group.
In order to find the webcast for either call, please go to the company’s website or you can google it as well! Keep in mind that you may have to sign up for the call, so please do that in advance.
