QUICK Consensus DI is a proprietary macro indicator that shows the direction of analysts’ earnings forecasts. The changes in analysts' forecasts are processed into a diffusion index (DI) for better understanding.
The DI calculates by subtracting the ratio of “Bearish” from “Bullish” to total stocks. A positive DI means that the number of upward revision stocks exceeds downward revisions. QUICK classifies stocks as “Bullish” in the case of analysts revise their consolidated net income forecasts upward by 3% or more compared three months ago, while as “Bearish” in the case of downward. The stocks are for the forecasts of at least five analysts.

QUICK Consensus DI indicates whether the market-wide expectations for the performance of major companies are upward or downward. QUICK also provides industry sector-specific DI and cumulative DI to help you follow trends.
