Are Prepared Remarks Necessary on Earnings Calls?

22 February 2022

IHS Markit's Perception Analytics team engages in in-depth discussions with investors and analysts daily. Between December 2021 and January 2022, the team spoke with 80+ investors and sell-side analysts to understand their appetite for prepared remarks on earnings calls.

When it comes to earnings season:
-Executive management and IR teams are busy

-Investors and analysts are swamped with results

Should you still be reading out prepared remarks for The Street to listen to or just skip straight to Q&A? The feedback we got may surprise you.
