OK how to pick stocks on earning consensus. If you're looking at picking your stocks or picking equities based on their earnings, a couple of things to look for, do price comparisons of course and then look at the PE ratio, look at the price to earnings ratio. That will be included in just about any quote you'll find out there. If you're not looking for the quote yourself say online or on a printout you've been given, you can certainly ask any broker and they'll bee able to lookup that information for you right away. And of course the lower the PE, the higher the earnings are for that price so you may find two equities that are exactly the same price but look for the lower PE ratio and you should have higher earnings on earnings column of that report. The other thing that you can look at in an earnings consensus is also look at the dividends and the amount that's being paid out by the company. If their earnings are high, they'll be able to pay you also a healthy dividend as well so that can add to your comparison of very closely priced equities.
