   ANALYSTS|Estimate Performance by Period
  
The Estimate Performance by Period page consists of two tables: one detailing the analyst's performance for up to the last eight fiscal quarters, and one detailing the analyst's performance for up to the last three fiscal years.

In both of these tables, the following columns are present:

Period End Date: The month and year in which the period came to an end.
Report Date: The date on which the company released actual earnings for the period.
Relative Accuracy: The Estimate Score and Rating the analyst earned for the period.
Rank: A comparison of the analyst to his peers based on his or her Estimate Score for the period.
Coverage: The percent of the period for which the analyst had an active estimate. For quarters, coverage is calculated based on the 91 days immediately preceding the report date; for years, coverage is calculated based on the 365 days immediately preceding the report date.
Average Absolute Error: The average of all the daily absolute errors — the difference between the analyst's estimate and the actual reported earnings — calculated in the period. It is always a positive number.
Actual: The company's reported earnings for the period.
Type: The type of earnings on which analysts were measured for the period.
