"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

Howdy,

I have been looking at EPS in your Fundamental Message Format.
In particular Field 20: Current Year EPS, and Field 21: Next Year EPS.

When I compare your data for symbol GMXR I get a very strange result.

Your Current EPS: -9.17, Next EPS: 0.44
Microsoft Money: Qtr(3/10): 0.05, FY(12/10): 0.46
Yahoo Finance: Ave/ Est(3/10): 0.05, Ave. Est(12/10): 0.49

Where did you guys get a Current EPS of -9.17 from?

Charles

Hi Charles,

The -9.17 that DTN displays is an annual EPS. There is a field on IQ snap quote that displays as Est. EPS, which has a value 0.44, which is the Current Year EPS Est.

The EPS field in IQ is the annual, and the Est. EPS is the Current Year Est. EPS.
