We investigate the effect of non-articulation on analyst earnings forecast quality. We look for evidence on the relationship between non-articulation and analyst earnings forecast properties: forecast inaccuracy, forecast dispersion, and forecast bias. As we would expect that non-articulation obscures accounting information available to analysts, we posit that non-articulation increases forecast inaccuracy and forecast dispersion.
