It’s earnings season.
Like many journalists, you’re likely sifting through long statements and charts, seeking other filings, cross-checking numbers, and dissecting the content.
Nowadays, releases also come with new bits of information – infographics or a CEO video of how the company performed for the quarter.
If you’d like to weigh in on what you’d like to see in earnings releases, take our one-question survey.
