    call reports

    Sam,

    Do you use any software or tools to go through bank call reports or simply read pdf files provided by
    the FDIC? The pdf format is inconvenient for quarter by quarter comparison.

    Also, is there a way to get notified when select banks submit call reports or do you just check
    this bank by bank close to the deadline for each quarter?

    I saw a couple of websites that seem to provide such tools, but they charge professional-level
    fees (3-5K and up per year).

    Functor.

    • Mr. Functor,

      Excellent question

      Just plain old CALL report. I do use UBPR numbers which is on FDIC site as well.

      As to timing of report, there are very few that report earlier than their news announcement, certainly only the small ones. I have to check it daily to get a early glimpse.

      I was not aware of such service as you described. Being that they are of few applications and on smaller issues the market for these services is very tiny. The price needs to be high to recoup the cost. But, that's almost my entire annual budget for investment!

      Sam
