NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vintage Filings, PR Newswire's full service financial printing, filing and XBRL-SEC Compliance division, today published the results of the first question of their "Shareholder Confidence 365 Study," and invite investors to answer the second question in the ongoing study.
The "Shareholder Confidence 365 Study" is a 12-month survey that is targeted to the three constituents with whom public companies communicate: institutional investors, individual investors and the financial media. Every two weeks, via email, social media and press releases, capital market participants are asked one simple question on a topic germane to public companies. The responses will deliver actionable intelligence to corporate Investor Relations departments. Responses are 100% anonymous and survey contributors may opt-in to receive the following question and results via email, as well enter a monthly raffle to win an Amazon Kindle.
Question #2: When researching NEW stock investment opportunities, do you visit the Investor Relations websites of those companies?

Question #1 Results: For the stocks that you CURRENTLY OWN, how often do you visit the Investor Relations websites of those companies?

"An investor relations officer's day is filled addressing very tactical decisions so it's important that they get through these decisions quickly and move on to strategic matters," said Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing at PR Newswire.
By asking one simple question every two weeks, Smith expects a consistent and hopefully expanding response pool. "No one has tried a real-time survey on this scale before. Its success will depend on the investors' true desire to share their voice in a transparent, direct platform. Their participation will help public companies communicate smarter," said Smith.
