Per the picture below, you’ll see the Earnings Distortion Score at the far right of your Portfolios.
We provide Earnings Distortion Scores for all stocks under coverage. These scores indicate how likely companies are to beat or miss estimates.
Professors at Harvard Business School & MIT Sloan empirically show that our measure of “core earnings” is superior to “Street Earnings” from Refinitiv’s IBES, owned by Blackstone (BX) and Thomson Reuters (TRI), and “Income Before Special Items” from Compustat, owned by S&P Global (SPGI). Specifically, our earnings data is:
- More accurate (Section 3.2)
- More predictive of future earnings (Section 3.4)
- More predictive of future stock prices (Section 4.3).
