Benzinga has stringent processes to collect and curate the highest quality earnings data, which is consistently considered the cleanest in the market. Benzinga follows a three-step method to ensure quality, accuracy, and timeliness.
- Benzinga Analysts start with GAAP earnings and identify non-comparable items which make the results unusable.
- Call sell side analysts when there are discrepancies on the comparable earnings figures (1,200 calls per quarter).
- Update API with Wall Street’s most accurate figures.
Earnings suite covers the Wilshire 5000 + 1000 additional US equities
