Speed Reading 10-K & 10-Q Company Filings

Wednesday, May 19, 2021
60 minutes

Companies' financial filings (Form-10K) have grown over time and are now equivalent in length to a 240-page novel. Even for analysts with modest coverage universes, parsing 10-Ks for relevant information can be time consuming, if not intractable. S&P Global Market Intelligence's Machine Readable Filings enables the process to be readily automated for Natural Language Processing (NLP). Two of the largest sections, the Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A) and the Risk Factors sections, are information rich. This presentation will walk investors and analysts through the steps required to systematically extract value from the textual content within filings.

  • How are different 10-K and 10-Q formatting conventions cleaned, reconciled, and standardized for a machine readable state?
  • Leveraging a technique from linguistics and NLP called Cosine Similarity, significant changes in each section can be identified which has demonstrated historical outperformance.
  • Comparing the incremental information content of 10-K sections.
  • How Quality and Trend Following (Momentum) relate to 10-K changes.
  • Evaluating the impact of small versus large textual revisions on stock returns and volatility.
