FCF estimated data from Eikon API doesn't match WS

Hi everyone,

I'm confused why the historical free cash flow estimations don't match that of Workspace? Please have a look at the screenshots below:

screenshot-2024-02-06-at-162659.pngAAPL, historical free cash flow estimations from WS


In the first photo, the free cash flow estimations (Mean) are highlighted in the green rectangle, while the second photo displays the free cash flow estimations (Mean) in the yellow rectangle. As evident, the values do not match each other. I have also included the actual FCF data to anchor the dates.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could provide some insights on this matter :)

@st.lee0166

Thank you for reaching out to us.

I ran the following code and could get the data correctly.

df, err = ek.get_data(["AAPL.OQ"],fields=["TR.FCFMean.periodenddate","TR.FCFMean.fperiod","TR.FCFMean"],
                     parameters={"SDate":0,"EDate":-9,"Frq":"FY"})
df

I checked the Data Item Browser tool and found that I can't specify the absolute dates in the SDate and EDate parameters.

You can contact the Eikon support team directly to verify the parameters that can be used to get the required values.
