Estimize is an open financial estimates platform designed to collect forward looking financial estimates from independent, buy-side, and sell-side analysts, along with private investors and academics.
By sourcing estimates from a diverse community of individuals, Estimize provides a more accurate, more timely, and more representative view of expectations compared to sell side only data sets which suffer from several severe biases.
60,000+ analysts contribute, resulting in coverage on over 2,200 stocks and 80 economic indicators each quarter. The Estimize consensus has proven more accurate than comparable sell side data sets over 74% of the time and by 15% on average.
Contributors to the Estimize platform receive free access to view our data in return for their honest pseudonymous contributions. Estimize manages the honesty and quality of contributions via several machine learning algos and statistical methods, along with a human layer of review (human brains are still useful!).
