Seeking Alpha is a popular resource for journalists because we have over 3,000 contributors and are the only comprehensive publisher of free conference call transcripts. SA can help you:
- identify article ideas
- research articles
- find key quotes
- find experts to interview
Primary source material: Transcripts
Seeking Alpha's conference call transcripts have been described by one journalist as "a godsend". Public companies conduct quarterly conference calls with analysts to discuss their businesses; those calls are full of valuable information about the company, its products and its market. Conference calls also frequently contain useful quotes which journalists may use in articles. You can find transcripts for any company in our Transcript Center.
We also offer powerful keyword search across transcripts. The search works well with product and company names such as Dreamliner or Palm Pre, industry terms like CPM, and broader business and finance topics such as stabilization and fraud.
If you cover a particular sector or industry, you can easily track what investor concerns by following Seeking Alpha's coverage. Here's our coverage of the major sectors; each one is broken into sub-sectors and themes: Biotech, Energy, Financials, Gold & Precious Metals, Gadgets (consumer electronics), Hardware, Healthcare, Homebuilders, Internet, Materials, Media, Networking, Retail, Semiconductors, Software, Telecom, Transport, and Utilities.
You can also use the search box on any page to search for coverage of a particular topic.
Cover a specific company?
If you focus on one or a few specific companies, perhaps because you have a local or regional beat, Seeking Alpha can help you. You can easily set up an email alert to receive transcripts, articles and other content about the company by registering on Seeking Alpha (it's free), adding the stock to your portfolio, and opting in to receive email alerts.
You can also find articles and transcripts about companies via our company pages. Here, for example, is Apple's.
Financial Media, Blogging, Microblogging and Social Networking
If you cover the media industry or financial media, you'll want to watch Seeking Alpha as a company -- we're the largest Web 2.0 finance site and are pioneering the application of social media tools to a vertical community. You can track what's happening on Seeking Alpha easily:
