A fundamental form of data for market participants is the company financial statements and other filings, like management changes, divestitures, and, in unfortunate cases, bankruptcy proceedings and windings up. At CityFALCON, we aggregate and deliver these filings both for public companies and for private companies.
Importance in markets and for SME investors
Filings are the primary source of financial and internal information on companies, and they are released directly from the company itself, so there is no interpretive lens from an external analyst. Markets often wait anxiously for these documents, since they can shift stock prices considerably depending on the situation presented by the filings.
For small companies that do not see much media attention, filings may be the only source of information apart from alternative data like Twitter and consumer reviews. This is especially useful for those investing in high-risk small companies where bankruptcy and other material events are only made public through filings.
