Trial Coverage: Limited date range for 100 of the largest global companies. Zacks data can be used to empirically analyze analysts’ forecasts and their revisions, price targets and recommendations (e.g., construct popular measures such as consensus forecast, earnings surprises, analyst track records, etc). Both Detail and Summary Historical Files will be available for both Estimates and Recommendations, though, broker permissioning may restrict the scope of the coverage in the Detail database. Alongside the core datasets (estimates and recommendations), Zacks database will also include pre-announcement history (analogous to company-issued guidelines in First Call), EPS and Sales Surprises and Price Targets. Additionally, Zacks provides the broker translation table containing the correspondence between broker/analyst codes and their respective names.
