Section Redlining

Our new view for 10-K’s and 10-Q’s guides you to the document sections with the most changes. Quickly visualize changes for a company over time or compare changes for companies in your watchlist.


Getting Started

Section Redlining is available in the main menu and as a Dashboard widget.

You can also access Section Redlining for a particular document via the redlining menu in the doc viewer, and for a particular company in the Document Search Company Search Summary.

Single Company Time Series

The Time Series view summarizes a company’s last three years of filings.

Click into a cell to view the original, new and redlined text. Clicking on added or deleted text will navigate to the location in the new and original columns, respectively.  Clicking on the original or new text will navigate to the appropriate place in the full document.


Interpreting the Data

10-Qs are redlined quarter-over-quarter.  10-Ks are redlined year-over-year.

Each section of the filing is summarized in one column.  If a section is not present in a filing the cell will be blank.

The cell color is a measure of the total words changed, additions plus deletions.  Darker cells have many changes, lighter cells have fewer changes.

The percent value is the net change in words / the number of words in the original text.

Watchlist Comparison

To view Section Redlining for a watchlist add the Section Redlining widget to your Dashboard.

The widget will pull the most recent filing for each company in the Watchlist.

The widget is limited to 100 companies.  For watchlists with more than 100 companies, the 100 most recent filings will be shown.
