Which companies reporting earnings next week have the best chance of beating the Street? CNBC PRO used Estimize, which collects thousands of estimates from real investors, to find out.
We looked for companies reporting earnings next week with an Estimize EPS estimate at least 5 percent higher than the Wall Street consensus forecast. Among those companies, we found the ones with a track record of beating the Estimize estimate more than 50 percent of the time.
Bottom line: Real traders and investors believe earnings from these companies will top Wall Street's expectations and the companies have a history of beating not only Wall Street's forecast, but the Estimize estimate, the majority of the time.
Here are the five stocks that made the screen.
Note, Estimize says its crowd-sourced consensus has proven more accurate than sell-side numbers more than 69 percent of the time.
