Sources for notification of company earnings announcements

Stolen from BUS-LIB:

The person was looking for "any kind of electronic source, preferably FREE, that would notify me in advance of an earnings announcement of a U.S. public company. Not sure if any one is the best one, but the majority of the ones recommended to me certainly do seem to provide exactly what I wanted."

Here's the summary:

Forbes has a pretty nifty site:
http://forbes.ccbn.com/earning.asp?date=20070213&client=forbes
It gives Highlights, Earnings, Webcasts, Conference Calls (with links!)and major Economic Events. You can search by company ticker or by date.

Earnings Whispers

Cantos
http://w3.cantos.com/cantos/dyn/main.php?t=a (Primarily limited to UK companies.)

Many firms also offer email notification of upcoming events of interest to investors...check the "Investor Relations" sections of websites of the firms you are monitoring. Of course, if you are monitoring a large number, that could be tedious.
