About AbsolutePD Outlook

AbsolutePD Outlook is a series of quarterly reports that provide credit rating forecasts and migration tracking on a cross section of U.S. small businesses. These reports are available through a secure online platform, available 24/7.

AbsolutePD Outlook offers three standard reports that can be filtered by the user. Each report provides a point-in-time snapshot of the 12-month credit rating forecast and exposure for small businesses in PayNet’s database and calculates the difference between these points from two selected quarterly start dates. The reports provide credit rating forecasts and migration trends for three types of segmentation of the U.S. small business economy:
   1. Risk Trend by State
   2. Risk Trend by Exposure
   3. Risk Trend by NAICS
