English term or phrase: First Call consensus estimate
Statement about the financial results of a mining company. The sentence reads; "based upon current estimates about...earnings, we are comfortable with the current First Call consensus estimates ...for xx's net earnings per common share..."

What bothers me here is the 'first call' -- excuse me, the 'First Call'

Thanks for any help!

click on First Call

a window will pop up to explain that
First Call is the name of an American company whose business is to collect the analysts' forecasts on the earnings of public companies, and then to resume these opinions in a "consensus report".
