Where Do You Source Your Forecasts?
We source data from Standard & Poors that aggregates forecasts from various brokers and equity research institutions. The default assumptions in models are based on these forecasts when available. We also provide the raw forecasts stats under metrics like the following:
- Standard Deviation
You can also find a summary view here in the Financials Explorer: [ Apple Forecasts ]
We check forecast metrics for updates multiple times a day and reflect changes as they come are received. When estimates are not available, we use our internal algorithms to extrapolate forecasts. Extrapolations are generally based on historical and available forecasted trends.
