O’Come All Ye Estimates

by Lipper Alpha Insight Research Team.


In 2015 the new Estimates Apps incorporated advancements in the Estimates Content Set and enhancements to the functionality available in the Apps.

The continued improvements demonstrate why I/B/E/S Estimates remain the global leader.

  • Incorporation of Summary, Detail, and Analytical Estimates along with Historical Actuals for over 210 Estimates data measures, including numerous industry key performance indicators that are unique to I/B/E/S Estimates.
  • All Summary, Detail, and Estimates Data Analytics are updated on the Apps in Real-Time, as revisions are processed from contributing analysts.  This is the first desktop product to include Real-Time SmartEstimate and Predicted Surprise values.
  • Graphical analysis incorporated into each Estimate App.  Analyze historical revisions, trends in margins, or scatterplot Detail Estimates – with settings to define the axes and bubble size etc.
  • Create a Custom Calculated Mean on the Detail Estimates App by selecting which contributors to include/exclude in the calculation.
  • View daily historical summary data in table format, and easily download the historical data to Excel for further analysis.
  • Graphical Display of Daily Recommendations and Price Target Summary, along with monthly display of the spread of estimates over the standard 5 point recommendation scale.  Easily see when there was a change in Analyst sentiment.  Click on the bar to see the Detail Estimates at each point in history.
