On this page of Benford's Law Stocks.com we present our study of MSC INDUSTRIAL DIRECT CO INC — ticker symbol MSM. SEC filings have been screened by our Benford's Law software, for quarterly 10Q and annual 10K filings from 10/24/2019 to 7/2/2024 for MSC INDUSTRIAL DIRECT CO INC under CIK number 0001003078. For filings made in XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) format, our algorithm extracts all "tagged" numbers presented by the company; for any non-XBRL filings our algorithm uses its own interal set of rules to extract what it believes to be numbers as found throughout the filings. The format found for each filing is presented below together with the results for MSM, with the percentage of found numbers beginning with each digit (1's, 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, and 9's) charted against the "normal" range observed throughout our coverage universe, as well as the "normal" range for MSC INDUSTRIAL DIRECT CO INC based on the past MSM filings our system processed in the past.

 • We deducted points (includes the impact of penalty multiplier) upon observing the 4's percentage was above the typical coverage universe range.
 • The 8's percentage was higher than the 7's percentage, increasing the penalty multiplier.
 • This is the 2nd column with percentage higher than the prior column, resulting in a penalty deduction.
 • We deducted point (includes the impact of penalty multiplier) upon observing the 8's percentage was above the typical coverage universe range.
 • We deducted points upon observing the 9's percentage was above the typical coverage universe range.
 • We deducted point upon observing the 9's percentage was above the company's typical historical range.

While the above MSM 10Q Filed 7/2/2024 is interesting in isolation, we have found that it is also useful to take a look at older MSC INDUSTRIAL DIRECT CO INC filings processed by our Benford's Law Stocks algorithm, to see how the company's filings "typically look" on a Benford's Law analysis. Below we repeat the 10Q Filed 7/2/2024 but instead of the chart comparing against the typical company across our coverage universe, below we show the same chart compared against the typical MSM 10Q and 10K filings that we have processed historically. This is followed by similar charts for each of those historical filings.
