Introducing VA Actuals: Crowdsourcing intelligence from the sell side to produce the best fundamental data
We are excited to launch a dataset that introduces a new level of sophistication to fundamentals data: VA Actuals. Sell-side consensus numbers post-earnings are often not directly comparable to Actuals that are reported in company filings and press releases. They can produce a confusing experience for investors, who often need to make the appropriate adjustments and figure out the right basis to correctly compare historical and future performance. Adjusted fundamentals products from traditional market data platforms struggle to keep up with how the market is forecasting line items.
Our solution, VA Actuals, is a new source is available via the Options panel under ”Sources.” VA Actuals take the Sell Side's estimate-comparable actuals and algorithmically select the most likely estimate-comparable actual. Discover how we capture VA Actuals here.
