StreetInsider.com provides extended earnings data going back to 2010: date, EPS, EPS estimate, EPS surprise. Each dividend item comes with these extra details attached: CompanyName, EPSEstimate, EPSSurprise.

They are available in two forms:

  • In a popup when mousing over an [si] eps item on a stock chart
  • In WealthScript Strategoes via the GetDetail or FormatValue methods:

Make sure you've collected the fundamental data before running this Strategy (Data Manager > "Update Data" tab > check "StreetInsider earnings releases" > go to "DataSets" tab > click "Update DataSet").

Issues and limitations

  • As of May 2018, StreetInsider introduced a protection against bulk capture of the data so you're unlikely to get the data for 2-4 symbols before being suspended.
