The StarMine team has selected five Asia companies, using Eikon Screener by Refinitiv, that we expect to beat FY20 earnings estimates, based on SmartEstimate® and Predicted Surprise data.
Our Asia selections for FY19 were 80% accurate, which can be seen here.
Our Asia picks for positive Predicted Surprises in FY20 are — Yuhan Corp (000100.KS), Korea Electric Power Corp (015760.KS), Merida Industry Co Ltd (9914.TW), Sinotruk Hong Kong Ltd (3808.HK), and Sumitomo Chemical Co Ltd (4005.T).
StarMine SmartEstimate® aims 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 the SmartEstimate diverges 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%.
