However, advanced search takes your research to the next level by allowing you to search across Koyfin's entire transcript library. Click on "Advanced Search" under the "Transcripts" section on the sidebar.
Utilizing Advanced Search
The Advanced Search dashboard provides tools to refine your transcript search:
- Search Bar: Enter specific terms, phrases, or advanced search operators. You can also exclude certain terms from your search.
- Date Range: Define the timeframe you want to search within.
- Filters: Narrow down your search by selecting the type of calls (e.g., earnings calls, special calls), specific companies, security lists (watchlists), or sectors.
Here are some advanced search scenarios to highlight the power of this feature:
- Broad Term Search: Search for a broad term like "AI" across all transcripts between 2004 and today to identify mentions of artificial intelligence.
- Specific Term Search: Refine your search by looking for a specific term like "weak consumer" within the transcripts.
- Sector-Specific Search: Narrow your search further by selecting sectors like "financials" and "consumer discretionary" to find mentions of your chosen term within those sectors.
- ETF or Watchlist Focus: Select specific companies or use watchlists to narrow your search. For example, search for "Chinese consumer" within a watchlist of luxury stocks.
