Understanding of Analyst estimate of EPS, and most importantly changes to estimate, is crucial in identifying big winners. At StockJupiter.com, it is one of the criteria in step 2 and plays a major role in shortlisting stocks for step 3.

Why is it critical? When Analysts estimate EPS for the first time, they work with a set of assumptions on current, historical, and forecasted performance. These assumptions obviously change as companies come closer to their quarterly results and as more and more data comes forth. Positive revision trend is very good for a stock, as it signals improving confidence among analyst expectations.

We analyze data and sort it by companies whose EPS was revised in all four periods, then by companies whose EPS was revised in the last three periods, so on.

Research indicates, stocks with upward revision of analyst estimate in each period tends to outperform others.
