Thomson One Banker Excel Add-in and IBES

We recently got access to IBES (I/B/E/S – Insitutional Brokers’ Estimate System) from Thomson Reuters on WRDS. This is excellent for researchers who want to access large quantities of brokers’ estimate data, for example when dealing with the detailed estimates collected on an individual broker basis.
Thomson Reuters
Summary (or Consensus) IBES data is also available on Thomson One Banker and Datastream. This consensus data is gathered monthly so gives a record of how brokers’ expected/expect a company to perform in terms of several variables. (Earnings per Share (EPS) is the most forecast of these.)

Thomson One Banker Excel Add-in IBES example is a spreadsheet that uses the Thomson Reuters PFDL functions to retrieve IBES data. (You need the TOB Excel add-in installed to use this.)
