    Thanks, David. It's our great pleasure to conduct this research. As you commented, Seeking Alpha is an open environment that solicits input from a large group of contributors and commenters, and is positioned to help investors make their own informed decisions.

    Massive information is generated in social media, some of them valuable, some not. Our study shows that Seeking Alpha sentiments on average do provide value to investors, so I'm sure articles written by contributors are NOT "cheap talks".

    Good point. This could be related to the wisdom of the crowd. Our study tries to quantify the effect of social media sentiment on stock prices. However, the underlying mechanism about how this is happening is also an interesting question.
    Thanks for your comment.
