StarMine Earnings Quality Model

An overview of StarMine Earnings Quality Model 

The Earnings Quality Model (EQ) is a percentile ranking of stocks based on the sustainability of earnings, with 100 representing the highest rank.

StarMine defines earnings quality as a measure of the degree to which past earnings are reliable and are likely to persist. High-quality earnings accurately reflect a company’s current and past operating performance, are indicative of future operating performance, and are reliable valuation measures for the company, regardless of the level of earnings. Companies with poor earnings quality are not necessarily engaging in earnings manipulation; in most cases, low earnings quality reflects a likelihood of deteriorating fundamentals relative to the past. Furthermore, earnings quality can be measurably high: companies with very persistent earnings have strengthening fundamentals and are likely to outperform their benchmark in the future.
