EPS announcement date

Research on analysts’ estimates often involves comparing the estimates with the actual reported values, and knowing the date that the actual value was reported can be important. For example, the Glaxosmithkline EPS for the year to Dec 2009, was reported in 4 Feb 2010.

While IBES on Datastream gives access to the consensus forecasts for EPS and other variables, it does not include this actual report date.

The actual report date is also available from:

  • ThomsonOneBanker – database IBES, variable EPSActualReportDate
  • IBES – Detailed Actuals File, Announcement Date
  • FactSet ExcelConnect – [to be confirmed]
  • Compustat (for North American companies) – RDQ, Report Date of Quarterly Earnings (in Fundamentals Quarterly)
