Sound the alarms—and the Cisco hold music— it’s earnings call season! Earnings calls are when a company’s management gets on a big, public conference call with analysts to answer questions about what’s in its quarterly earnings report and what’s going on with the profits, losses, and anything else that might move the stock. Sometimes the calls are business as usual. And sometimes, well, they are not. And while analysts are the ones who do most of the question asking on earnings calls, we here at Say think that a company's everyday shareholders, who are just as vested in its outlook, should also be able to ask questions. Since early 2019, we’ve been testing our Earnings Call platform with Tesla, which used Say to answer questions from shareholders on its Q4 2018 and Q1 2019 calls, as well as during its annual shareholder meeting. Now we’re opening up the functionality to investors in 10 companies, including, in addition to Tesla, Wells Fargo, Amazon, Lyft, Spotify, Boeing, and Coke. Who can participate: Anyone with a share in the company. All you need is one. Owning partial shares, or a funds or ETF with shares in the company, also counts. How it works: Shareholders confirm their shares and can submit questions as well as vote for the ones they most want answered ahead of the call. The company may then answer a selection during the call. Call Dates: Wells Fargo 7/16 Coke 7/23 Boeing 7/24 PayPal 7/24 Starbucks 7/25 Knoll 7/25 GE 7/31 Lyft 7/31 Tesla 8/7 Watch the video up-top to take a spin through the platform and ask away. We'll be setting each platform live closer to the call dates.
