Each quarter, companies release their earning numbers in the income statement. The release occurs after or before the market opens.
Earnings are used to calculate several fundamental ratios, including the earnings per share or EPS, which is calculated by dividing the total company's earnings by the number of shares outstanding, and the earnings yield, which is the ratio of earning per share (after tax and interest payment on fixed interest debt) to the current stock share price.
This item downloads a list of NYSE or NASDAQ listed stocks, which are going to release their earning numbers. If a stock releases its earnings before the market opens, a value of one is set to the database field "before".

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
