On Visible Alpha Insights, you’ll find detailed consensus data for all of the relevant metrics on any given company. This deep consensus information is uniquely available via our platform.
At the end of 2018, Visible Alpha Insights had a coverage universe of 3,600 companies, and in the first half of 2019, we initiated coverage on 442 companies, bringing coverage to 4,000+ companies covered globally.
In addition to increasing company coverage by sector and region, we are also constantly adding new line items to existing companies. New consensus line items are added when companies change what they disclose, analysts alter what they model and/or when there are new key metrics investors are watching. In the first half of 2019, we added a total of 20,694 line items. To break it down further, 2,043 companies saw new line items added over the last year, and on average, 10 line items were added for each company.
While continuously working to increase coverage and add data points to our existing company coverage, we also added new features and functionality to the platform to further enhance the workflows of both our buy-side and sell-side users.
