How the Estimize Platform Works

Estimize is designed to collect opinions from the widest possible range of contributors, while maintaining the highest quality data through advanced behavioral and statistical algorithms.

  • Contribute Anonymously

    Our contributors are a broad mix of buy-side, independent, and sell-side investment professionals, along with amateur analysts, independent investors, and academics. While we do ask which of these categories you belong to, any contributor can choose to remain anonymous as they publish their estimates.

  • Give-to-get

    Contributors gain free access to Estimize data for each earnings release they estimate on. Each stock allows estimation on EPS and Revenue. Some stocks also have a key performance indicator such as same store sales, monthly active users or product segment revenue.

  • Quality Control and Smart Consensus

    Advanced algorithms monitor contributor behavior and assess the validity of each estimate to prevent erroneous data from entering the consensus. Each estimate is then weighted based on our proprietary Select Consensus model.

  • Alerts, Screening, Excel files

    Smart data viz to help you make more informed estimates, automated alerts to leverage the Estimize data for better investment decisions. Advanced screening to find the data you need. Daily Excel file via email. Leaderboards and user profile to track your accuracy.

Industry and Academic Research Into the Estimize Dataset

  • "We found multiple benefits to using the Estimize dataset; especially in the case of short term applications in which accuracy is essential. Timelier Estimize forecasts can more accurately identify earnings surprise which results in a greater capture of the post earnings drift.”

    Yin Luo, Head of Quantitative Research
  • "Estimize enables all four elements of crowd wisdom. By allowing any individual to contribute, Estimize promotes decentralization and diversity of opinion. The freedom to cover any firm allows contributors to draw upon any expertise, special local/industry knowledge, or interest that they may have when forming an estimate."

    Barbara Bliss, Professor of Finance
  • "McKinley Capital has tested whether Estimize estimates provide investable information that is not otherwise available from its competitors. The test results are presented in this paper. Estimize data appears to contain unique and valuable pre-earnings and post-earnings announcement information in a form that can be useful for an institutional equity manager such as McKinley Capital."

    Robert Gillam, President and CIO
  • "Estimize is a market solution to the inherent bias of sell-side analyst forecasts, which produces more reliable and timely estimates due to its size and diversity. We find evidence that the incremental usefulness of Estimize in forecasting earnings and proxying for the market’s expectation increases with the number of contributors. This illustrates that the value of crowdsourcing is a function of crowd size."

    Rick Johnston, Professor of Finance
