How to get email alerts prior to earnings?

I recently missed an entry I had made in my Google calender to sell an instrument (Lundin Mining) before earnings. I got stung for that oversight, and would like to get a better system to get emailed alerts for upcoming earnings for stocks in my portfolio.

Seem to have difficulty finding a way to accomplish this, any recommendations would be appreciated.

    @TSellers I haven't heard of a service that does this, but maybe one of the earnings calendar sites, like Bloomberg or Morningstar or Zacks, does it if you have a subscription. You would have to research that on your own, unless someone here knows.

    Alternatively, if you track your stocks on Stockcharts, when you buy a stock, you can go to the stock's website, get the earnings date, then use the annotation tool to write a note on your daily chart. You could even add extra bars to your chart style and add some kind of annotation symbol, say an arrow or a vertical bar, on the bar for the earnings date when it comes into view.

  • Thanks Mark for the suggestions. I plan to try your second one and see how it works, as I was thinking about doing something similar with my charts in MotiveWave that I also refer to every day. I may also continue to add the date to Google Calendar.
