How soon is the new company information available?
We offer two levels of timely model updates
Overnight - by 8AM EST we can update your models for those companies that reported before 8PM EST the prior evening. So while you sleep our team in India is working to update your models and your updated models are ready for you to use when you arrive at work in the morning
Intraday - 30 Minute - for selected companies we can update your models during the day within 30 minutes of the company reporting its press release or filing an 8K
What items does Model Express update?
We update the Financial Statement items as reported by the company, not the standardized financial statement items updated by some of the other market data providers, so when you use Model Express your model is actually updated
We update Business Segment and Geographic Segment items
We update Non-Financial Metrics, such as units of iPod sales for AAPL or same store sales for retailers and restaurants
For which items does Model Express calculate surprises?
We calculate surprises for the key financial statement line items, for Business and Geographic Segment revenue and for a large number of Non Financial Metrics
What companies does Model Express update?
Model Express can be used to update an U.S. or non-U.S. Company for which you maintain a model
How does the update process work?
The Zacks Excel link, which is part of the Zacks Research System (ZRS) is able to read your existing model and is used to automatically update the newly reported relevant line items from data in the Zacks databases
Who updates my models?
We can do the updates - As soon as a company reports its quarterly results our analysts can update your models using our Excel Link and send you the updated model by email
Or you can do the updates - you can use our Excel link system yourself to update your models
