Who better to provide expectations of key performance indicators such as EPS and revenue than the company executives themselves? Company earnings guidance is a major factor that affects market sentiment and analyst ratings, and of course, the price of a company’s securities. Staying on top of this data is a crucial part of any investment or risk assessment.
