SimFin-bot-2 authored wrong Ticker

Hi Thomas,

Reporting a wrong Ticker that looks like was authored by SimFin-bot-2, so that if there is a systematic issue with the bot, you can look into it!

SimFin ID: '546895'
Company name: 'CANANDAIGUA NATIONAL CORP'
Ticker: currently 'CNC' but actually should be 'CNND' (correction has been submitted)

Thanks,

Charles

  • Found another one:

    SimFin ID: '137841'
    Company name: 'Altisource Residential Corp'
    Ticker: currently 'AAMC' but actually should be 'RESI'

    (incidentally, the company changed their name as of 2/21/2018 to Front Yard Residential Corp, but trading under same ticker 'RESI' as it had always been doing)

  • Another one also:

    SimFin ID: '97729'
    Company Name: 'ClubCorp Holdings, Inc.'
    Ticker: currently 'CC' but actually should have been 'MYCC' during the time it was publicly traded (on NYSE 2013-2017).
  • Hi Charles,
    thanks a lot, these tickers are parsed from the SEC filings website, so not sure it can be improved that way, but submitting a correction is a great way of fixing this (that's how the system was meant to be working anyway, that the deficiencies of the algorithm are corrected by the users).
  • ok! i will submit corrections. they are weird though since some of them never traded under that Ticker to begin with -- not sure how the parser is obtaining those erroneous Tickers.
  • I double checked again, there is actually a separate field in XBRL for the tickers (at least for ClubCorp that I checked now), which seems to be correct. So I'll use that for the XBRL crawler if available.

    ok this is fixed now for all companies that will be loaded in the future, thanks for reporting.
