The Most Comprehensive FDA PDUFA Date Calendar
Compiling PDUFA dates is hard. They must be gathered from a variety of sources because no central authority exists. Thus far, I’ve populated my FDA Calendar using a program I wrote to parse SEC filings for PDUFA dates. SEC filings are a great source of information, but they only capture about 75% of dates important to traders. I supplemented my program’s coverage by manually adding PDUFA dates to the calendar, but I’ve always wanted a better automated solution.
I primarily code in R, Perl, and Java. Recently, I decided to teach myself Python. As part of the learning process, I challenged myself to write a Python script that parses press releases for PDUFA dates.
With this new program, I believe my FDA Calendar now covers 95% of all actionable PDUFA dates for companies traded on US stock exchanges. I am confident in saying this is the most comprehensive publicly available FDA PDUFA date calendar. Not only is my calendar the most comprehensive, it is also the most up-to-date because it automatically updates every morning with the previous day’s press releases and SEC filings. Every entry contains a source link for independent verification.
Fresh. Timely. Comprehensive. I hope you will agree with me that my FDA calendar is the best available source for PDUFA dates.
If you use my calendar, I encourage you to try my other products. I personally use all of them (“dog fooding” in tech parlance), so the same effort and attention that goes into developing and maintaining the calendar goes into all of my tools.
