Earnings Display Details
With Earnings selected in the events tab, you will see "Earnings" added to your indicator list. Select the three dots next to "Earnings" to reveal the display options. There are 3 formats available for Earnings: Standard, Short, Full, as well as alignment options for the top or bottom of your chart. Earnings data also supports "Earning Surprises". If you choose “Format: Full” in your earnings display settings, then you will see an S* mark on the labels: S+ for cases when the surprise is positive, S- when it’s negative, and S= when it’s zero.


ToolTips:
Hover over any Earnings marking to reveal more in-depth information pertaining to the Earnings report, and how the EPS is being calculated.

Dividends Display Details
With Dividends selected in the events tab, you will see "Dividends" added to your indicator list. Select the three dots next to "Dividends" to reveal the display options. In addition to just displaying the Dividend date, users may also add markings for the date Declared, Recorded, or an Ex-Dividend along with alignment options for the top or bottom of your chart.

Splits Display Details
With Splits selected in the events tab, you will see "Splits" added to your indicator list. Select the three dots next to "Splits" to reveal the display options. In addition to just displaying the Splits date, users may also add markings for the date Declared or an Ex-split along with alignment options for the top or bottom of your chart.

Of Note
For every symbol, the accounting method used to calculate the EPS for earnings is different (this is noted as the “Type” when hovering over the “Earning” box on the chart). The reason why the method differs across all (most) the tickers is that for every ticker we’re using the method which makes the analyst expectations and reality more comparable to each other; as different analysts use different methods for their predictions.
