The outcome of events such as earnings releases can have a large effect on a stock's price, so it's useful for investors to know when those events are. Some events have documents associated with them, such as earnings transcripts or presentation. In these cases, the endpoint will provide a reference to the document for inclusion in your product.
Events are classified according to the following types. Note that many of these are quite rare, so the most common events are typically related to earnings, presentations/conferences, and dividends.
|eventId||Atom assigns a unique id to each event|
|assets||Metadata for assets related to an event|
|eventType||See Event types|
|documents||Array of documents related to the event|
|documentId||This can be used to retrieve a document using the Get Document by Id endpoint|
|date||Date & time of an event in Unix milliseconds|
|fy||Fiscal year associated with an earnings event|
|fq||Fiscal quarter (1-4) associated with an earnings event. fq=0 indicates that the event is associated with the entire fiscal year rather than with a specific quarter (eg. for an annual earnings event).|
