List of 5 Star SEC XBRL Filings Grows to 92

The list of SEC XBRL filings which has received my 5 Star Rating has now reached 92!

You can see the list of filings receiving my 5 Star Rating below and you can go to this web page to see the detail of the analysis. (Recall that last week I posted a blog entry stating that I had found 24 SEC XBRL filings to which I could assign a 5 Star Rating.)

 

Criteria for Receiving a 5 Star Rating

The following is a summary of the criteria for receiving my 5 Star Rating (For more details see this blog post):

  1. No XML, XBRL, or EFM syntax errors. This is indicated by having a "0" in Column 8 which is marked with "E" under "Edgar Filing Manual" on the XBRL Cloud validation report.
  2. Calculation consistent.  (i.e. no calculation inconsistencies reported during XBRL validation)
  3. Pass one basic business ruleOne business rule must be passed, basically checking for the existence of net cash flows and the reconciliation of the beginning and ending balance of cash.
  4. [Table]s must be correctly created. The [Table] structure must follow the US GAAP Taxonomy Architecture as specified.
  5. Extension concepts reasonable.  The extension concepts added must appear reasonable.  This is admittedly subjective, it would take a blatant error to be dinged for this, if everything else was satisfied.

Remember that this set of criteria is just a basic set of minimal criteria which an SEC XBRL filing should, in my view, meet at this stage of the game.  There are many other things which need to be considered in order to be considered a high quality filing.  See this blog post for more informationThis blog post relates to things accountants might need to consider.

 

Summary of Filings Analyzed and Analysis

The SEC XBRL filings which I analyzed were 10-K's and 10-Q's submitted between January12, 2010 and March 2, 2010.  Here is summary information about that set of filings.

  • There were a total of 422 filings in this set.  Of that total, 92 received a 5 Star Rating, which is 22%.
  • Of the 422 filings, 401 of them (95%) had no XML, XBRL, or EFM errors reported (criteria 1). So only 21 had these types of errors.
  • Of the 422 filings, 317 of them (75%) had no calculation inconsistencies. So only 105 had calculation inconsistencies.
  • Of the 422 filings, 319 of them (75%) modeled [Table]s correctly.  So only 84 had [Table] modeling issues.
  • Because checking the business rules and extension concepts is labor intensive, I only checked filings which passed the other three tests for these criteria.  As such, I don't have data for the how the complete set of filings did against these two criteria.

While there were many filings doing well against one of the critera above, only 92 SEC XBRL filings did well against all 5 criteria.  Kudos to those 92 SEC XBRL filers!
