Facts Sheet:

News scores represent a quantification of financial news, and specifically news sentiment about traded assets. These scores are produced by detecting the tone and potential impact of market-moving stories published about a specific company. Calculations are performed in real-time to pro-duce continuously updated scores between 0 and 100. Higher values indicate positive news senti-ment whereas lower values indicate negative sentiment. Scores hovering around 50 depict neutral sentime nt..

Company-level news scores include one master score and individual supporting scores. Each score is calculated using a different linguistic classifier. A classifier is an algorithm designed to assess the overall sentiment of a stock by detecting language within stories that is likely to drive prices upward or downwards over a given period of time.

Some classifiers specialize in deriving news sentiment according to the type of story (i.e. corporate actions like earnings announcements or press releases on product recalls and layoffs). Others emu-late how a group of sophisticated analysts would likely rate a news item in terms of potential impact on price or traded volume.

Finally, RavenPack classifiers take into account how markets tend to respond historically to particu-lar types of news by mining years of news archives.
