Dear All,

I am currently looking for summary analyst forecasts for the next 5 years for some US companies. Could you please indicate to me the steps, provided that these Information are obtainable at all. Which financial indicator do I have to chose?

Thanks and kind wishes!

Hi,

The most common research dataset would be IBES, which has analyst forecasts for coming quarters, years, and also a ‘long term growth’ forecast (‘ltg’). (You can use ltg to extrapolate future earnings if analyst forecasts are not available for all of the next 5 years).

Hope this helps,

Joost
