   How does StarMine identify likely revisions in broker research documents?
   As broker research documents pass through our system, we attempt to identify which documents contain a revision to an estimate, rating/recommendation, or price target by running the raw text of the document through a statistical algorithm trained to look for specific combinations of words and phrases. Documents that likely contain a revision are shown with a small blue flag icon.

The language analysts use in their research documents is varied and often ambiguous. Thus, our text-based algorithm sometimes mis-identifies which documents contain revisions. If you open a report to find that the StarMine algorithm mis-identified the document, help us improve our algorithm by clicking the link in the top right corner of the document window.
