We look for messages that discuss the intentions and perspectives of those individual investors and commentators.

ST-Score™: The key to measuring social sentiment

ST-Score simply is a measure of how much more positive or negative the sentiment is for a stock compared with a lookback period.

Our research has shown that stocks with ST-Scores over 2 have a high probability to beat the market. Stocks with ST-Scores below -2 have a high probability to lag the market. This is the key to eliciting the intelligence from the crowd and mining the social capital.

Let's See It In Action:

We took 2 recent examples from the current earnings season to demonstrate the value of this groundbreaking new service.

$AA (Alcoa, Inc., NYSE)

While the debate continues as to whether Alcoa is still a bellwether for the wider economy, smart traders are looking to a bellwether of another kindsocial sentiment analysis of stocks.

On July 8, 2014, Alcoa, Inc., reported earnings after the market close. AA's earnings beat estimates by 50% and the stock price surged 2% in after hours trading.

During the market session on July 8, AA's ST-Score increased steadily throughout the day. In particular, AA’s ST-Score breached the significant level of 2.0 at 12.25 PM and then, during the last hour of trading (after 3PM Eastern), AA's ST-Score went through the 3.0 level, holding steady in to the close. AA closed the July 8 session at $14.85, basically flat on the day.

On July 9, AA opened at $15.24, a gap of 2.6% from the previous close. AA continued to rally to end at $15.68, a gain of 5.6% from the previous day’s close. On July 10, the rally continued, with AA reaching an intraday high of $15.96.

Rather than deliberate on whether AA is a bellwether any more, traders could have taken a long position, entered any time after 12.30 PM Eastern on July 8 and would have realized a good gain if closed out any time on July 9 or 10.

One more example:

$AVAV (AeroVironment, Inc., NASDAQ)

A company that makes a 6.5 inch drone that looks and maneuvers like a hummingbird may not be on your radar right now, but with the StockTwits Edge report eliciting the hottest stocks of the moment, you have a new source of trade ideas.

Case in point:

Around the same time as AA was releasing earnings, another lesser-known company was doing the same. AeroVironment, Inc., a supplier to the Defense Department beat analysts’ estimates, its price surging 6.6% in after hours trading.

On July 8, AVAV’s ST-Score breached the significant 2 level shortly after market open and proceeded to flirt with the 3 level for the rest of the session. AVAV closed the day at $30.88, basically flat.

On July 9, AVAV opened at $33.04, a gap of 6.5% from the previous close. AVAV continued to rally to end at $35.01, but not before reaching a HOD at $36.44, a gain of 18% from the previous day’s close.

A long position, entered any time on July 8 would have realized a good gain if closed out at any time on July 9.
