Accessibility to Historical Earnings Dates

Is there a way to reference earnings announcement dates? For example, if I wanted to backtest a scenario that included not purchasing equities if they were within one week of an earnings announcement.

Update Backtest








We can backtest this strategy with a minor change in the CoarseFineFundamentalComboAlgorithm. The FineSelectionFunction method will select symbols based on their EarningsReport.FileDate member:

public IEnumerable<Symbol> FineSelectionFunction(
IEnumerable<FineFundamental> fine)
{
return fine.Where(x =>

// More than 7 days after earnings report
Time > x.EarningReports.FileDate.AddDays(7) &&

// Invalid FileDate
x.EarningReports.FileDate != new DateTime())

.Take(NumberOfSymbolsFine)
.Select(x => x.Symbol);
}

Please checkout our database for other fundamental information we can use for fine universe selection.

Hi Karthick, you can refer to this algorithm and modify the FineSelectionFunction

def FineSelectionFunction(self, fine):
fine = [x for x in fine if self.Time > x.EarningReports.FileDate + timedelta(days=7)
and x.EarningReports.FileDate != datetime.time()]
return [i.Symbol for i in fine[:self.__numberOfSymbolsFine]]

To support automated live trading of this type of stategy a data feed with future earnings announcement data would be needed. Are there any plans for QC to provide a data feed for this? This would be a *very* useful feature. Thanks.

This specific strategy we can do without that data feed -- (self.Time > x.EarningReports.FileDate + timedelta(days=7)) but generally speaking upcoming earnings would be awesome =) Luckily for you can import Quandl Zacks Earnings if you wish!
