Frequently asked questions
What is the earnings calendar?
The earnings calendar is a useful tool that helps traders track companies that are about to announce their quarterly or annual earnings. In the FBS market calendar, you can find the date, estimated EPS and reported EPS for each available company.
What is the earnings season?
The earnings season is the period when publicly traded companies release their earnings reports, thereby creating unique opportunities for traders to benefit from short-term volatility.
Publicly traded companies typically report earnings four times a year, quarterly. There is no official start and end date for the earnings season. However, it usually lasts during the month following the financial quarter – January, April, July, and October. You can find the earnings dates for all companies in the FBS earnings calendar.
How to use the earnings calendar in stock trading?
The FBS stock earnings calendar will help you predict price movements during the earnings season. So, you can capitalize on the volatility of the stock market.
It’s impossible to follow every company’s earnings report, so just pick a few of your favorites in the calendar. You can use filters by date, symbol, and country. Once you’ve selected a company, open the Economic Calendar and compare the actual data to the forecast:
- if the company “beats” the forecast, its stocks may rise;
- if the company “misses” the forecast, its stocks may drop.
But you can profit in both scenarios by going long (buy) or going short (sell).
How to trade stocks for beginners?
You can profit from stock trading even if you are a newbie. FBS analysts regularly publish the rating of the best-performing stocks of the previous month and the list of the best stocks to trade this month. Besides, you can keep an eye on the stock market events calendar to find potentially profitable stocks. So, stay tuned and take your chance to earn.
