State Street MediaStats

Research shows that media has a measurable impact on asset price changes. State Street MediaStats scours more than 30,000 media sources as well as other “Big Data” sources to estimate future price changes of individual equities. These company-level insights are aggregated to understand broader industry and macroeconomic trends that help you leverage accurate, valuable and predictive insights for your investments.

Our products include:

  • Earnings Prediction Technology, which analyzes large sets of consumer data to gauge interest in large retail firms. These digital patterns, reflective of consumer behavior in the real economy, provide investors with an additional, distilled input to formulate quarterly earnings estimates.
  • Media Indicators that provide insights into stock price changes using proprietary algorithms to measure abnormal intensity, conditional sentiment and disagreement surrounding individual companies in media coverage. The suite also includes linkages indicators, which gauge the strength and impact of inter-company relationships based on co-mentions in the media.

Unlike other media analytics offerings, which provide real-time alerts to boost trading speed, State Street MediaStats produce consistent, daily measures that analyze future performance of key assets over the long term. These tools are carefully designed for investing – not high-frequency trading – to help meet your long term goals. As your needs evolve, we are actively expanding our universe to cover companies in the Russell 3000 and MSCI World and are investigating coverage of other asset classes.
