The IBES database provided by Thomson Financial contains comprehensive global information on analyst estimates of earnings per share including both individual forecasts and consensus data. Analyst recommendations are available as well.

In addition to earnings estimates data is available on a more limited basis for estimates of revenue, cash flow, FFO, EBITDA, target prices, long-term growth and more.

The researcher is required to obtain permission from IBES prior to using the data in a research project. A two to four page abstract along with a current vita are required. In addition, first time users must complete a use agreement.

Please submitt all materials to Ron Harris and he will forward to IBES.
