Conference Calls

Conference call transcripts contain a record of analyst q&a with executives of publicly traded companies.   Calls usually take place after the company’s quarterly earnings are released.  There are several ways to find these.

  • Search Fair Disclosure Wire through the Search box on the Library homepage, adding the phrase “conference call” to your company name.  (Example:  Whole Foods Market and conference call)
  • Search Fair Disclosure in Lexis Nexis.   Sometimes the transcripts are available a few days sooner in Lexis.  In the Search Terms box, type in your company name.   If you have too many results that are not relevant, follow this example within the same Search Terms box:  COMPANY (Whole Foods).
  • The company’s investor relations website.  Companies sometimes post transcripts, but more often the audio files and accompanying Powerpoint files from recent calls and investor conferences.
