Google caches Seeking Alpha Pro articles in their original version (which SA apparently posts for free for some temporary period). Example: https://seekingalpha.com/article/4122501-charter-communications-deal is a Pro article, and https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-cmUqhmNTpwJ:https://seekingalpha.com/article/4122501-charter-communications-deal+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us is the cached version of the full article. To get to page 2, just add ?page=2 to the end of the URL ( ex. https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-cmUqhmNTpwJ:https://seekingalpha.com/article/4122501-charter-communications-deal?page=2 ).

Cheers!

This is awesome way to deal with the pay wall. Thanks!

I noticed that if I commented on an article I could still access it through the comments link after it had gone behind the paywall.  I still had full access through this backdoor.  Not sure if they "fixed the glitch", because I don't comment often.

Thanks for tip, Paul.  I tried it for an old Apple transcript.  I can get to page 2 of the transcript but not beyond.  See example below.  Am I doing something wrong?

Just use Firefox, take the base URL (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://seekingalpha.com/article/3968300-apple-aapl-timothy-donald-cook-q2-2016-results-earnings-call-transcript) and turn off style sheets via menu entry: View->Page Style->No Style

Then you can read the entire transcript in one page.

The Motley Fool has conference call transcripts.  They're a bit hidden. I'm trying to see if they can unhide them a bit.  For example, here's Apple's most recent conference call transcript:

https://www.fool.com/earnings/call-transcripts/2018/02/01/apple-inc-appl-q1-2018-earnings-conference-call-tr.aspx

If you go to fool.com, type in AAPL in the search bar on the right hand side of the main page.  That will take you to the Fool's stock page for that company.  On the right hand side again, go to "Overview" and scroll down to "News and Headlines."  Unfortunately at that point you have to scroll through all sorts of news items to get to the transcript.  Hopefully with SA going up behind a paywall a small amount of convincing could be done to get The Fool to separate out the transcripts as a separate item.

Thanks for the info. You can simplify it much by searching google: "aapl transcript fool".

I talked to people at Motley Fool and the transcripts are a new thing for them, still in beta.  They're working on fleshing it out more, and aim to have them more robustly supported in the near future, so watch that space.
