Gridstone Search for SEC documents and Transcripts

Gridstone Search (http://search.gridstoneresearch.com) is avilable as beta for all the information seekers who have to sieve through SEC documents and company transcripts. Gridstone Search is now loaded with EDGAR filed documents (includes the five most important filing types – 10K, 6K, 10Q, 8K and 14A) starting 2007 and Transcripts provided by Seeking Alpha (through a unique partnership).

Anyone interested in researching a company/industry based on trusted sources of information can use Gridstone Search. Mainly designed for investment managers, equity researchers, management consultants and investment bankers this unique vertical search engine allows to retrieve information precisely and with ease. The search results are classified into tables, text and text with numbers. Tables are sources of numbers corresponding to financial or operational line items that companies report and are useful for building investment models. Qualitative information and numbers not reported in tables (in transcripts or other documents) are available in the text. ‘Text with numbers’ contains those text that also contain a number along with the matching search keyword (or a related concept).

Try searching for capex from the homepage and you land up on the table search section:

We identify matches based on concepts and keywords – hence the words capital expenditures are highlighted for the capex search. Every result can be audited to the source with a single click. The ‘view in source’ link takes us to the text or table in the source location. The search result text is highlighted in the text for better readability. View in source for transcripts redirects to the corresponding Seeking Alpha page wherever applicable.
