Hemscott, the business and investor information provider, has launched an online research and alerting tool, Guru Broker Estimates.
Hemscott will also have access to information from Regulatory Information Services authorised by the FSA, such as mergers, financial results and director dealings.
The service will be targeted at the professional and business communities and will enable users to be aware of changes in market forecasts for individual companies across their portfolios, potential targets and stocks of interest. Rosalyn Wilton, CEO of Hemscott, said: 'Having access to this information in one place will enable users to be more closely informed of market movements and allow even faster decision making therefore reducing risk.'
Other services provided will include an email alert of broker forecast changes from around 60 leading brokers on UK and Irish listed companies. Graphical illustrations of the progression of consensus expectations, key valuation data such as forecast earnings per share and dividend and widely used ratios such as EV/EBITDA and cash flow per share will be available. Additionally the service offers tracked progression in forecasts from a specific broker for an individual company.
Wilton added: 'Guru Broker Estimates has been developed in direct response to customer requests for consensus and individual broker forecasts delivered directly to their desktops. The need for immediate access to this information, and the daily updates and alerting functionality offered make this the most timely service of its kind in the market place today.'
