Zacks EPS Surprises History

The Zacks EPS Surprises Data Feed provides pre-earnings release consensus EPS estimates from analysts for thousands of stocks. Zack’s storied research team aggregates and validates the estimates and compares these estimates to non-GAAP EPS reported by the company, providing the amount and percent surprise on release.  Analysts and developers can access this data feed in Excel and API format.

Use EPS Surprises to Craft Trading Strategies

Companies report EPS figures quarterly and those figures may or may not differ from the consensus estimates. If earnings are off from what was estimated, the stock price usually reacts immediately. If the actual reported EPS is greater than the sales estimate (positive EPS surprise), the stock price will generally rise, and if the actual reported sales fail to meet the consensus EPS estimates, the stock price will generally fall (negative EPS surprise). A company that has a consistent track record of beating their consensus EPS estimates will generally do well over time
