Real-time news analysis is extremely powerful. Professional investors such as hedge fund managers spend millions of dollars on state-of-the art tools that read and analyze media coverage to explore hidden investment opportunities.
With over 30,000 stock related stories published in the US every day, it is impossible for retail investors to follow financial news. That’s why our news tab is so valuable. It gives you the same research power as the likes of Goldman Sachs. What’s more, it is based on the same data and algorithms that the biggest hedge funds in the world license from TipRanks, presented in a visualized and simplified way.
In a Nutshell
By analyzing the news you can easily identify companies that are generating positive stories.
The TipRanks news tab is designed to give you a high-level news overview, including sentiment, on a single screen. It uses graphs and charts that have an intuitive design to enable you to quickly and easily evaluate how a company is being covered.
Media Buzz – is the company making news?
The first graph indicates whether the company is making more news or less news than usual this week. It shows the number of articles that have been published over the past week, as well as the average weekly number of articles about the company.
News Sentiment – is the news is good, bad or neutral?
With the sentiment graph, you can quickly evaluate whether the news is bullish, bearish, or neutral. It also compares stock sentiment to the weekly average for the sector. In addition, you can see precisely what percentage of articles are bullish, versus bearish and again compare this to the sector average.
The graph looks simple but under the hood there is sophisticated text analysis technology rapidly scanning every article for positive and negative statements.
News Score – how can the stock be assessed from its news coverage?
The score is an objective assessment based on a formula that combines Media Buzz and News Sentiment data. It shows you how bullish, bearish or neutral the news is and compares it to the sector average. This score can help you make an informed decision at a glance.
Media Coverage Analysis – how previous coverage affected the stock price
You can see an overview of media coverage over the past three months, and how the stock price changed. The graph shows whether the news was bullish, bearish, or neutral. Hover your mouse over a bar to display the number of articles that were published that day and their sentiment. You will mostly find that when stocks have very positive or negative news coverage the stock price will be impacted in the following week.
Keywords – see a snapshot of popular phrases
You can see common phrases being reported in the news on the Keywords tabs. TipRanks scans the articles, identifies common phrases and displays them in different sizes, according to their prominence. You can hover your mouse over a phrase to see weight of that phrase– those with higher weight appear more times.
