Real-time news analysis is so powerful that 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 everyday, it is impossible for retail investors to follow financial news. That’s why our news feature is so valuable. It is a powerful tool that levels the playing field and gives you the same research power as the likes of Goldman Sachs.
By analyzing the news you can identify companies that are generating more positive stories than usual, this can help you create short term strategies that outperform the S&P500. The TipRanks.com news tool is based on the same data and algorithms that the biggest hedge funds in the world license from TipRanks, but presented in a visualized and simplified way.
Here’s how it easy it is to use.
In a Nutshell
The TipRanks news feature 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, for example McDonalds, is being covered in the news and whether the news is bullish, bearish, or neutral.
Media Buzz – is the company making news?
The first chart 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 chart, you can quickly evaluate whether sentiment is bullish, bearish or neutral and see how it compares to the average sentiment for the sector over the past week. It also breaks down precisely what percentage of articles are bullish, what are bearish, and compares this to the sector average.
The chart 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.
Bullish vs. Bearish News – read the news
What if we told you that you can instantly access all the bad news about a stock before deciding what action to take? Or perhaps you want to read some good news.
Our technology enables you to do just that. You can see all the recent articles, where they were reported and click on to them to read more. You can filter to only read bullish, bearish, or all articles by clicking on the buttons on the top right hand side.
Media Coverage Analysis – how previous coverage affected the stock price
You can see an overview of media coverage over the past three months, and see how the stock price changed. The graph shows whether the news was bullish, bearish, or neutral, and when you hover your mouse over a bar, it displays the number of articles that were published that day and their sentiment. You will mostly find that when stocks have a 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.
