Public companies hold conference calls once every three months, coinciding with the release of quarterly financial data. Shareholders can listen in on or obtain transcripts of the phone conversation in which stock analysts ask questions of the company executives, who deliver updates and forecasts on the company's position.
Investors should listen in on or get a transcript or audio recording of their companies' conference calls, as you'll get to hear how questions are answered, and the analysts might elicit some off-script comments or information from the executives. Information on the conference calls should be available on the investor relations portion of a company's website.
