Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S Guidance data now available through WRDS

Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) is pleased to announce the addition of Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S Guidance data.

Company Expectations, I/B/E/S Estimates and WRDS Side-By-Side − a Powerful Combination

Thomas Reuters I/B/E/S Guidance allows academic clients to directly compare analyst and management expectations on company performance, safe in the knowledge that they are using the same accounting basis for consistent analysis.

Guidance provides the user with comments directly from management about future expectations. Complementing the I/B/E/S Guidance data, Earnings Estimates is used by every financial professional for Earnings Data covering over 5800+ US Companies, 12,400 International Companies, with history dating back to 1976.

A Global Database with over 8,200 companies in 50 countries and history back to 1994, academics utilize the I/B/E/S Estimates and I/B/E/S Guidance together to form hypothesis in different directions—resulting in conclusions that illustrate the strength of the product set.
