Tear Sheets are Excel-based snapshots of the latest consensus and broker estimates that can be especially useful during earnings season. The Visible Alpha Tear Sheets will not only include Key Values and but also line items from all the financial statements and segment level information that is available within the Visible Alpha Platform.
To access a Tear Sheet on a particular company, navigate to the top right of any company page. From there, you can select from two types of tear sheets: Earnings Previews and Earnings Reviews & Surprise Analyses.
Earnings Preview: Assess how estimates have changed over specific time periods and review a snapshot of the Street’s views on key metrics before earnings are announced. You will also be able to manually enter reported numbers and earnings commentary in the space allotted for a quick surprise analysis.
Earnings Review & Surprise Analysis: Perform surprise analysis at a very granular level and understand how the Street has revised their estimates since the company reported earnings.
Both options have versions that allow for the download of “Consensus and Broker Data” as well as “Consensus Only Data”.
If you select “Consensus and Broker Data”, you will notice a separate tab that contains the latest broker estimates.
You can view your downloaded file both as a toast message or in your notification box.
