Institutional Brokers' Estimate System

A database established by the Lynch, Jones, and Ryan brokerage that compiles different analysts' at different brokerages forecasts on future earnings for many different publicly-traded companies.

It is designed to assist in making investment decisions, especially to provide second opinions on one's own investment advisor's recommendations.
