Company Announcements

Often a company's earnings announcements are price sensitive and have a marked effect on the share price.

The Company Announcements Hi-Lite allows users to include icons in the price chart indicating the point at which significant company announcements were made.

The ability to visually integrate fundamental data with the price chart can give important insight into users fundamental analyses.

Click on the CE icon in the Hi-Lites access panel to apply the Hi-Lite and open its table below the price chart:


Announcements List

A table below the price chart includes details of each announcement included in the fundamental data arranged in chronological order.

It includes identification details of the Date, Type and Value.
