Company Earnings database
Stock market investing decisions require a reliable and comprehensive
understanding of earnings. 123Jump has created a history of 2,500 companies'
quarterly and annual earnings dating back to the year 2000. We plan to
expand our coverage to 3,000 companies and extend our coverage to the
year 1995 by mid-year 2007. Quarterly earnings on most sites are not adjusted
for stock options and for earnings restatements.
Yahoo Finance and MSN Money have less than 2,900 companies quarterly earnings
for the last four quarters only. Several of these earnings do not reflect
accurate GAAP earnings or restated earnings. Our staff spends lot of time
and efforts in collecting and reviewing earnings data on an on-going basis
and do not rely on external sources for earnings database.
We prepare and review corporate earnings to build our own data base and
do not work with third parties. 123jump.com views reliability, accuracy
and consistency of this database as central to our editorial mission.
