Thomson Reuters Guidance Datafeed

To replace the discontinued Thomson Reuters First Call Historical Database (FCHD) which is no longer available in WRDS, Terry College has purchased the Thomson Reuters Guidance Datafeed, a feed that offers quantitative (numeric) company expectations from press releases and transcripts of corporate events with First Call and I/B/E/S earnings forecasts.

To access the Thomson Reuters Guidance Datafeed, contact Terry OIT.

SDC Platinum and Other Data Services

In addition, Terry College subscribes to SDC Platinum: Global New Issues / Mergers & Acquisitions. SDC is currently upgrading from an app-based client to a web-based version. Please contact Terry OIT for assistance setting up the web-based server.

Bureau Van Dijk's Zephyr and Orbis

Zephyr is an information solution containing M&A, IPO, private equity, venture capital deals and rumors. No other M&A product adds more deals per year or links to such an extensive source of company information. Zephyr is updated hourly.

Orbis combines information from regulatory and other sources and delivers company information with added value, serving as a powerful comparable data resource on private companies. Use Orbis to find, analyze and compare companies worldwide.

These are available through Wharton Research Data Services.
