Sample screenshot of data update status
- Company Analysis Update - this is the latest date and time the system last updated the report. With this update, the system identifies if there are any new data that needs to be reflected or modified on the reported. This is also the time stamp shown in the heading of the report (sample screenshot below).
- End of day share price update - the latest date and time the closing price of the company was updated.
Last Estimates Confirmation - this date represents the most recent date of confirmation of the current estimate from the analysts for the data item and period.
Last Earnings Update - this pertains to the end date covering the latest reported financial statement of the company. Please note that this is different from the date the company has released or disclosed its financial statement. Example, a company may release earnings update somewhere between the months of April or May for its financial statement covering a quarter period ending March 30 (usually covering first quarter for those companies that follow calendar reporting). Due to this, you might see companies that just released earnings update a week ago but on our report the number of days may be longer because it is based on the end date of the financial statement not the date the company released the report.
- Last Annual Earnings Update - similar to earnings update, this is the end date covering the latest reported financial statement of the company but pertains to the latest year end. Most companies follow calendar reporting thus you'll usually see in the report as December 31. Some companies, like Apple Inc, follows fiscal year wherein their Annual Financial Statement ends September 30.
