New database trial

A trial has been arranged by a Sauder faculty member to the WRDS SEC Analytics Suite via WRDS.

WRDS SEC Analytics Suite simplifies research by allowing researchers to quickly and easily develop tailored datasets from all SEC filings, parsing millions of regulatory reports based on custom criteria. WRDS SEC Analytics Suite is positioned for broad business usage from due diligence and forensic accounting to disclosure research and investment management.
The Suite provides retrieval and export customized subsets of the most common filing reports. Advanced data-mining is supported within the WRDS programming interface – with supplied sample programs that can be modified allowing users to parse and extract any entity that reported to the SEC’s EDGAR database since 1994.
The free trial runs until August 31.
