Each report might indicate to buy, to hold or to let go; hence, must be at hand upon filing. Therefore, getting ahead on grabbing these data offers a great investment opportunity at large. Let us show you on how to get these valuable data right after SEC database received them.
We already announced last year that XBRLAnalyst can track filed SEC reports for you, and now, let us discuss further its benefits in detail:
1. Receive real-time filings alerts to your email and XBRLAnalyst ribbon for your saved Company List (Clist)
This offers our subscriber the privilege to receive alerts/notifications to your registered email or to show in your XBRLAnalys ribbon any SEC filings done by your company list. Below are the steps on how to activate it:
- Click “Alerts” and choose “Manage CList and Alerts” from the dropdown list. A window of “Edit my Definitions” will open to show your saved Company List (Clist). As exampled below, there are 4 filings alerts related to the Clist “TopPipeCompanies”
- Reports are categorized based on XBRL data and you can choose which filings you want to be notified with:
- For XBRL Filings – for company filings with XBRL data such as 10-K, 8-K, 10-Q, etc.
- For Other Filings – for company filings in HTML (without XBRL data) such as proxy statements DEF 14A, PREM 14A, CORRESP, etc.
- Alerts can be turned off or customized whenever you wanted to receive them in Email, XBRLAnalyst Ribbon, or Both. Turning alerts on will promptly notify you on related reports by the companies in your CList, just minutes after SEC filing.
