The StarMine team has selected five Japanese companies, using Eikon Screener by Refinitiv, that we expect to miss FY19 earnings estimates, based on SmartEstimate® and Predicted Surprise data.
Our Japan picks for negative Predicted Surprises in FY19 are — Ajinomoto Co Inc (2802.T), Screen Holdings Co Ltd (7735.T), Minebea Mitsumi Inc (6479.T), ZOZO Inc (3092.T), and Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T).
SmartEstimates® aim to provide earnings forecasts that are more accurate than I/B/E/S Consensus Estimates, by putting more weight on the recent forecasts of top-rated analysts. When SmartEstimates® diverge significantly from Consensus, you can anticipate the occurrence of earnings surprises with an accuracy rate of 70%. Revenue SmartEstimates® are even more predictive of surprises, with a historical accuracy rate of 78%.
