DOW + (8 S&P 500 Top Weights) Earnings Estimates And Revisions

In the spreadsheet above I have tracked the earnings estimates for the DOW 30 PLUS 8 of the S&P 500 top 30 weights [that are not either included in the DOW 30 or in the top 30 weights of the Nasdaq].

The 8 companies are at the bottom of the spreadsheet under the heading “EXTRA.” The purpose of this is so we have up to date EPS earnings/revisions for the top 30 weighted stocks in the DOW, S&P500, Russell 2000, and Nasdaq.

I have columns for what the 2020 estimates were on 11/13/2019 and today. The column under the date 1/12/2020 has a letter that represents the movement in 2020 earnings estimates since the most recent print (11/13/19). “U” means 2020 estimates are UP in the last 60 days. “D” means 2020 estimates are DOWN in the last 60 days. “S” means 2020 estimates have remained the SAME in the last 60 days. The column entitled “1yr Target Est” is the Wall Street consensus 12 month price target for each stock.

What this table is telling us so far is that estimates have remained somewhat stable. More estimates came down for 2020 in the past 60 days than went UP – Down:Up – 24:9 ratio. The rest remained the same.

Something to keep an eye on: The cumulative 2020 earnings power of these 38 stocks was revised down by -1.97% in the past 60 days [HOWEVER, a significant portion of this downward revision is related to Boeing – which will take a short term EPS markdown in 2020 – and then fully recover its earnings power (backlog) run rate in 2021].
