  • Citibank: Ahead of Earnings, Sentiment Breaks Down [View article]
    Sentiment has dropped for Citi recently, but remains at respectable levels. Maybe short term issues, but long term looks relatively good.

    My understanding is that Toshiba has broken ground on a multi-billion dollar new flash memory production facility.

  • Market Sentiment Remains Below 50 Day MA [View article]
    You can certainly view this type of market sentiment as a contrarian indicator. I remain bullish, but it is interesting that market sentiment has been heading down since about 11/30/09....

  • 2009 Sentiment: Apple, Google Lead Top Ten Stocks [View article]
    Thanks for the comment. Take a look at the soon to be released Piqqem trading simulator.

    You can trade any stock on sentiment or change in sentiment, run simulations against previous periods, and then lock in your strategy with a specific portfolio. You will find ways to beat the S&P as well as buy and hold all by trading on sentiment.

    Hope it is valuable.

  • BusinessWeek on Piqqem and Crowdsourcing Investments [View instapost]
    The stock price is determined by the equilibrium or clearing price of the buy and sell orders. In this model, the market is controlled or at least heavily influenced by players who place large orders - money managers, institutions, etc. These larger orders will tend to move the market and the market price. A 100k block order to sell at the market from Fidelity will overwhelm my 100 share buy order. This is the wisdom of the large players.

    The wisdom of crowds, at least as defined by Piqqem, takes a different approach. Everyone in this model has an equal vote as to the price direction of a stock and it is the aggregation these votes that creates a sentiment indicator. The sentiment can then be used as another data point when looking at what to buy/sell or when to buy/sell. So the vote from an Apple engineer who is not trading Apple stock is worth as much as the vote from a large institution who regularly places large orders for the stock.

  • Sentiment Moves Lower Ahead of Amazon's Earnings Release [View article]

    This analysis simply looks at sentiment heading into an earnings announcement. The thesis is that this sentiment may 'foreshadow' earnings.

    At this point, we are still looking at how sentiment and share price work on don't work together. Sentiment may lead or lag price movements and it may be different during different cycles within a quarter.

    Finally, yes we do want people to come to our site and vote. This is key to creating valuable data. But in turn we offer some interesting tools on looking at sentiment and from there any investor can decide to use it or not.

  • Sentiment Moves Strongly Positive Ahead of Apple’s Earnings Release [View article]
    You make a very good point, but it is interesting to see sentiment move so consistently upward for AAPL.

  • Apple’s Guiding Light [View article]
    The non-GAAP numbers were stunning as they defer iphone and Apple TV revenue. The cash position now at $25 billion creates a rock solid balance sheet.

    But the analysts are at 1.66 for Q1 and Apple at the top of their is at 1.35. Do the analysts sit tight or do we see guidance from them taken down tomorrow?

    Maybe nobody cares, but a series of downgrades my provide a great buying opportunity.
