New Constructs Announces New Study From Harvard Business School & MIT Sloan that Reveals Problems with Fundamental Data & Research

New Constructs (NC), the leading provider of reliable fundamental research on private and public businesses, announced revelations from a new paper forthcoming in The Journal of Financial Economics, a top peer-reviewed journal.

The paper, "Core Earnings: New Data & Evidence" reveals:

  1. Fundamental data suffers from material inaccuracies, omissions and biases.
  2. Discovery of a "novel database" that enables investors to overcome those flaws.
  3. New, proprietary measures of Core Earnings and Earnings Distortion materially improve stock picking and forecasting of profits.

"Most investors had no way of knowing about the problems with their fundamental data before this paper was published," said David Trainer, CEO of New Constructs. "Now, they can see the magnitude of the problem and the importance of fixing it, especially fiduciaries."

The authors, professors from Harvard Business School (Charles Wang & Ethan Rouen) and MIT Sloan (Eric So), invested years of research into the paper. After it was rigorously reviewed by experts, The Journal of Financial Economics, a top-three peer-reviewed journal in the world, selected it for publication.

"We were thrilled to take a first step in better understanding the nuances of earnings-related disclosures embedded in financial statements using New Constructs' novel granular data," said Charles Wang.

The paper also highlights the difficulty in collecting critical data from the footnotes and the MD&A. It underscores the unrivaled efficacy of New Constructs' Robo-Analyst technology for intelligently analyzing complex financial statements and disclosures at unprecedented scale.

"The implications of these findings are potentially far-reaching for investors and researchers." - page 35 in the paper.

Now, all investors, not just Wall Street insiders, can access research that properly assesses corporate profits after excluding the unusual gains and losses that companies bury in footnotes.

Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan are not the only institutions to write papers on the superiority of New Constructs' data and research. Find more papers here.
