10K Annual Reports
How to read 10-K reports like a pro
The Form 10-K is a long, detailed annual report on financials and operations that companies must submit to the SEC. It is one of the most important filings for investors to understand before buying or selling stock. Docoh helps you quickly cut-through the noise and get straight to the details.
Ignore the boilerplate text
The SEC imposes a formal structure to 10-K annual reports, so most companies use the same template every year. This makes it tiring to read one report after another, because most of the text is the same and important changes can be missed. Docoh diffs highlight any text that’s been added, removed or changed from one year to the next, so you can quickly discover exactly what’s different in each 10-K, and skip the template text.
Analyze the subtext
Academic research suggests that the use, or change, of specific language in a 10-K filing can correlate with future stock price. Docoh provides sentiment analysis next to each annual report, based on the findings of the research papers. Also, added and removed word lists let you quickly see words that are new to the current filing, or missing words that were previously used.
