Are archived filings used in the analysis?2021-09-29T15:43:30-04:00

What does the Blue triangle indicate?2021-09-29T14:00:00-04:00

The icon indicates there is an EMMA submission error. This is not a comment on materiality. It instead indicates that when working on the analysis, the filing used to satisfy the obligation was found in a different category or for a different year than would be expected.

What is the Red Flag used for?2021-09-29T13:59:13-04:00

  • No coupons are entered for Tax Exempt deals.
  • The Target Issue does not contain a Sector and State.
