FactSet has added State Street’s MediaStats Equity Indicators to its Open:FactSet Marketplace. The MediaStats indicators have been developed in partnership with MKT MediaStats, an academic research firm, and scour more than 100,000 media sources as well as other big data sources to estimate future price changes and risks pertaining to individual equities, country equity indexes, and foreign exchange rates. The indicators use natural language processing and machine learning algorithms to account for biases and filter out noise in the media. Media-derived insights are aggregated to provide broader industry and macroeconomic trends, and help users improve investment decisions.
