Trending Earnings Models
Contributor models appear at the top of each company's model page on the day they are published, with one up-vote and one down-vote (50% up-vote to total votes). After that, models appear in order of up-vote percentage. You can vote a contributor model up or down (one vote per IP address per day). Follow your favorite contributor for new model alerts.

We model earnings based on consensus estimates, not our own opinion of the earning capacity of any of the companies we cover. This serves two purposes: 1) It gives our model users a base-line starting point from which they can make adjustments using their own expectations for the company, and 2) It allows our users to isolate the impact of new earnings results each quarter to determine if the price movement after each release is logical.
We have two categories of models: Tier 1 and Tier 2. Each of our Tier 1 Excel-based models include the Income Statement, Segment details, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, Market Multiple share valuation, and Discounted Cash Flow Valuation. Each Tier 2 model includes the Income Statement, Segment details, and a Market Multiple share price target. The financial statements and price target sections for both tiers are linked through equations, which allow our users to seamlessly change assumptions and instantly see an estimate of the impact on earnings and the price target.
