Question: Where can I find earnings estimates for companies?
A company's forecasted or estimated earnings are made by analysts and/or by the company itself. A company website will generally provide both the official earnings releases as well as a calendar of release dates under its investor relations information.
Go to the Virtual Business Library's Company & Financial Information section for links to useful resources including links to the following suggested resources:
Mergent Online: Provides earnings estimates data under Company Details which is based on data from multiple analysts.
Bloomberg: Provides earnings estimates for public companies globally. Use these Bloomberg functions:
