There are two types of analyst estimates (broker forecasts) available: summary or consensus estimates, and detailed estimates at the individual analyst level.
Earnings Per Share (EPS) is the most common, but other analysts estimates, e.g. Dividend Per Share, EBITDA, Net Debt, Sales/Revenue, may be available.
Summary or Consensus estimates are available from:
- Thomson One: Click on the Companies Views, and then select Estimates.
(Note: this resource only works in Internet Explorer)
Detailed and Summary estimates are available from:
- WRDS (you need to obtain your WRDS account) and click COMPUSTAT.
Go to Factiva, then Companies/Markets, then enter name of stock symbol. Go to Custom Report and choose Income Statement and/or Growth Rates & Outlook.
For IBES, Nelson or Zack's estimates use Bloomberg (available at Barcelona IESE Library Documentation room). Enter Ticker symbol, hit the EQUITY Key, type EE, and hit GO key. For a calendar of expected earnings announcements, type ACDR and hit GO key.
