  • AlphaGenius' Twitter Sentiment Calls For June 11, 2013

    The market volatility today seems to have shifted the sentiment on Twitter to slightly bullish from bearish yesterday. AlphaGenius' Sentiment Alert models are calling up for the next week on the following stocks.

    2013-06-11: TRV - UP
    2013-06-11: ABBV - UP
    2013-06-11: AMP - UP
    2013-06-11: COG - UP
    2013-06-11: CTSH - UP
    2013-06-11: HAR - UP
    2013-06-11: HRS - UP
    2013-06-11: MDT - UP
    2013-06-11: MRK - UP
    2013-06-11: PSX - UP
    2013-06-11: TWC - UP
    2013-06-11: TXN - UP

    Each model is ~60% accurate in walk forward backtesting. Sentiment can change fast, so these calls are for one week. Social media sentiment can be traded on its own but is often most effective when combined with technical and fundamental analysis.

    Disclosure: AlphaGenius is long all stocks mentioned in this post. Sentiment from the social web is only one tool and should not be solely relied on. Investors should do their own research before buying or selling a stock. This post should not be regarded as an offer, solicitation or recommendation to sell or purchase any security or other financial product.
