Useful Tips for Your Search

  

  1. If you do not specify Stock Code/Stock Name and Headline Category/Document Type, the search period shall not be more than one month.  If you specify Headline Category/Document Type but not the Stock Code/Stock Name, the search period shall not be more than twelve months. 

   

  1.  If you do not know a listed company’s full name or stock code, you may click on "List of Stock Codes" (sorted by stock code) or "List of Stock Names" (sorted by alphabetical order) next to the input boxes. You can then click on the stock code or stock name.

   

  1. To facilitate your search of the Headline Category, there is a built-in three-level search.  The highest level has 13 first tier headline categories.  You can then narrow down your search by selecting a group heading of second-tier Headline Category in the next level.  If you do not know the structure of the headline categories, you can click the Help button for a list of categories at the lowest level in alphabetical order.
