For the week of 8/3/20-8/7/20, we focus on the Earnings Distortion Scores for 116 companies.
Our proprietary measure of earnings distortion (as featured on CNBC Squawk Box) leverages proprietary data featured in Core Earnings: New Data & Evidence. This paper shows that our adjusted core earnings are:
- more accurate than “Operating Income After Depreciation” and “Income Before Special Items” from Compustat, owned by S&P Global (SPGI) and
- remove significant bias from IBES Street Earnings from Refinitiv, owned by owned by Blackstone (BX) and Thomson Reuters (TRI).
