StarMine SmartEstimates

An overview of StarMine SmartEstimates 


The StarMine SmartEstimates is a "smart" mean. Many investors use the simple average of analyst estimates, often referred to as the mean, to predict a stock's earnings or revenue. Unfortunately, the mean is flawed. It places equal weight on each analyst's estimate, regardless of whether the estimate was issued two or 200 days ago, or whether the analyst is more – or less – accurate in covering a stock.

StarMine goes further (1) by calculating how accurate an analyst is and how timely his or her estimates are, and (2) by putting more weight on the most timely estimates from the most accurate analysts. As a result, StarMine's SmartEstimates are more accurate than the mean.

StarMine's SmartEstimates also utilize the detection of a recent RevisionCluster when one has occurred. A RevisionCluster refers to a series of analyst estimate revisions within a relatively short period of time for a given fiscal period of a given stock.
