What are earnings calls?

Earnings calls, also known as conference calls,  are presentations by a company's top management, usually the CEO and CFO, to financial analysts, institutional investors and interested shareholders. The presentation by the CEO and CFO is followed by a question-and-answer session that allows analysts to gain additional information.

Most conference calls are conducted immediately after the company releases its financial results in a press release or an 8-K filing with the SEC.  The most recent webcasts or audio of the earnings calls are posted on the company's website, usually on the Investor Relations page. Companies offer free e-mail alerts so that interested investors are notified when new calls are available.
