If you’re tasked with covering business, you might want to check out a new feature from Sqoop. The document-mining site recently announced a new geographic search/location filter feature for SEC filings. That means that reporters can look for all SEC form types, or just a subset such as Form Ds or 8-Ks, in their state. And if you want to get even more specific, you can narrow your location even further by proximity to a specific latitude/longitude.
You can also save these location-based searches as alerts, which means you’ll get an email whenever a new document is filed that matches your criteria. That means no more searching the same sites for the same keywords every week.
You can learn more about Sqoop’s new feature on their website.
