The script displays info about the share's corporate reports. The data is downloaded from https://investing.com/earnings-calendar/:
- Report date
- Profit per share (EPS)
- Market capitalization
The program works the following way:
- Searching for a ticker it is launched on (works the same way with "#ticker" "ticker"). If no data are found, it offers to find # in the Ticker List and enter # manually (one-time action) in the lower left window having the # mark. If you need to change the previously selected #, click No during the company confirmation and enter the new #. This is necessary when your broker has signed a ticker in its own way, for example _Sberbank_adr * instead of the usual SBER (you can enter the ticker manually only in the full version).
- Plotting vertical lines corresponding to dates of the published corporate reports. The tooltip of each of the lines contains data on the appropriate corporate report.
- The E and $ marks are assigned to vertical lines:
- if EPS value exceeds the forecast, the green E mark is used,
- if expectations are not met, the red one is used;
- if Revenue exceeds the forecast, the green $ mark is used,
- if expectations are not met, the red one is used.
- The table at the bottom left displays: the ticker (on which the
program has been launched) and company name (corresponds to the one
downloaded from the website),
date and info on the expected report as well as the one published not earlier than 5 days ago.
(5 days after releasing the report, it is moved to the chart as a vertical line and a search for the next report date starts.)
- The +, - and ! marks at the report date specify the report issue time as follows:
- Report issue:
- - Before the market opening,
- + After the market closure,
- ! No data.
- Company indicator graphs are displayed on the chart (EPS and Revenue $). The graphs are plotted based on the downloaded reports and data present in the downloaded reports. If some report is missing on the website, the graph is based on available ones. If some indicator is missing in the downloaded report, its value is assumed to be zero on the graph. The graphs can be moved or deleted. Reports located in the table at the bottom left are not considered by the graphs. Only the ones displayed as horizontal lines on the chart are considered instead.
- If the program is launched on the instrument not present in the list, no actions are performed. If there is a report from another company on this chart, it is deleted.
- The program works in English and Russian.
