SEC Almost Gets RSS Right

March 31, 2008 by Joe Ponzio

Thanks to George at Fat Pitch Financials for pointing out that the EDGAR system now allows you to subscribe directly to an RSS Feed. That said, the SEC’s feeds are not showing the right date – not yet at least. On my reader, all of the SEC’s filings show up with a December 31st date whereas mine show the proper filed date.

For now, I still like mine better. We have the same information, but the F Wall Street EDGAR Feed system:

  • has the proper “filed” date;
  • keeps the title similar (ie., EDGAR Filings for [company]) so new feeds are automatically organized in my Outlook;
  • offers the auto-suggest feature for quickly finding filings without having to constantly go to and back out of pages.

Will the SEC expand their system to offer more? I don’t know yet so I’m going to stick with mine for now.

Feel free to use whichever one you want.
