Tracking company earnings is a key element of any fundamental trading strategy. Often, a short-term trading opportunity arises following the realization of a company either missing or beating market expectations. Gaining an edge on such information, however, is very difficult since there are literally millions of eyes on Wall Street looking at the same information. In a recent study, we considered whether earnings sentiment could provide the edge that everyone so much desires.
Sentiment toward Wal-Mart, which reports its Q4 earnings before the bell Thursday, has declined over the quarter, while its share price has seen a $10 move higher. That does not mean a negative earnings surprise, but given consensus is for Q4 EPS near the top-end of the company’s $1.46-$1.56 guidance range, caution may be appropriate.
The US Intelligence community, including their three main branches in Washington are rather busy these days to overlook the security implications in Europe within their definition of Counterterrorism analysis. In fact, their analysis is realistic and sobering: All three main intelligence branches predict further attacks of the model “Paris” ahead. They predict even a rising trend.

There are so many reasons why we would want an answer to this question. Which publications should investors read? Where should a PR firm send press releases? How much is a publication worth? Are all „column inches“ equal? And for systematic news analytics models, should certain publications be over or underweighted?
The supply chain of a company can tell us a lot about its future performance. After all if customers struggle or go out of business, the supplier companies lose business. If the supplier stumbles, then the customer has to source elsewhere, incurring additional cost. Hence we have begun to model these relationships using news analytics.

RavenPack was started in 1999 by Hardy Schloer and Heiner Pollert with the goal to develop new and Quantum Relation Technology based integrated Artificial Intelligence Systems that could solve very complex problems in commercial, political and humanitarian areas.

Maslov’s hierarchy of human needs is a theory in psychology and human values. Ultimately it is a theory of human perception. Perception however is mostly created and occupied by modern tools of ‘perception-engineering’ such as political campaigning, marketing, advertising and well funded special interest groups that are all vying to define the needs and wants we are supposed to have. And let us not forget religion, which also shapes and influences the minds and behaviors of us individually, and our communities for desired outcomes. Religion, arguably of human creation, is the most ancient tool that has been wielded to dominate human values since the dawn of civilization.
