Conference Call

A telephone call in which there are more than two participants. In investing, a publicly-traded company schedules conference calls where any analyst following that company may hear about its recent happenings. That is, a company executive speaks on a conference call and attempts to present information, such as quarterly earnings or a merger, in the best possible light for analysts. The SEC requires companies to schedule conference calls in advance and to allow as many analysts as possible to listen in on them.
