What is the "Transcript" tab and how do I use it?

The investment goal: You’re bullish about a technology development or market trend. Which stocks will benefit from this trend?

The feature that achieves this for you: As part of your PREMIUM (formerly Essential) subscription, you have unlimited access to Seeking Alpha conference call transcripts. These are transcripts of companies’ quarterly calls with investors, in which they discuss their business. Use Seeking Alpha’s transcript search to find the companies discussing the theme you’re interested in.

How to use it: There are two primary routes to finding specific stock transcripts:

  1. Search for the stock that interests you in the top right corner of the home page. Click on the Earnings tab and then on the Transcripts tab under that. 
  2. When accessing Seeking Alpha from a laptop or desktop (not mobile), in the search box at the top of the Seeking Alpha website, type in the phrase you are interested in, such as “solar panel” or “autonomous vehicle”. When you land on the search results page, click on the Transcripts tab to see every company that mentioned this theme on its calls.
