Consensus Estimate(redirected from Consensus Rating or Estimate)
The average of different analysts' estimates about a stock's or security's performance. One may make a consensus estimate for any number of measures, such as earnings, sales, or revenue. A consensus rating or estimate may be published and, assuming the estimate is well-regarded, announcements of actual measures that differ from the consensus may affect the security's price significantly.
