Company earnings guidance is a major factor that affects market sentiment and analyst ratings, and of course, the price of a company’s securities. Staying on top of this data is a crucial part of any investment or risk assessment.
The guidance data suite provides the investor with clarity on how a company expects to perform in the coming months, and its game plan for financial budgets. When looking for the right information to make an objective decision, the guidance breaks down the noise surrounding the company’s strategy.
