SEC-Edgar implements a basic crawler for downloading
Getting filings of various companies at once is really a pain, but SEC-Edgar does that for you. You can download all of a company’s periodic reports, filings and forms from the EDGAR database with a single command.
You can install the package using pip:
$ pip install secedgar
You can clone the project:
$ git clone https://github.com/sec-edgar/sec-edgar.git $ cd sec-edgar $ python setup.py install
from secedgar import filings, FilingType # 10Q filings for Apple (ticker "aapl") my_filings = filings(cik_lookup="aapl", filing_type=FilingType.FILING_10Q, user_agent="Your name (your email)") my_filings.save('/path/to/dir')
from secedgar import filings, FilingType # 10Q filings for Apple and Facebook (tickers "aapl" and "fb") my_filings = filings(cik_lookup=["aapl", "fb"], filing_type=FilingType.FILING_10Q, user_agent="Your name (your email)") my_filings.save('/path/to/dir')
from secedgar import filings from datetime import date daily_filings = filings(start_date=date(2021, 6, 30), user_agent="Your name (your email)") daily_urls = daily_filings.get_urls()
