Natural Language Processing(NLP) is applied to firms' text-based news from Nikkei newspaper and QUICK, and judges whether the context of the news is positive, negative or neutral. We are one of the members in Nikkei group, so have exclusive access to their data.
NLP is utilized to MD & A(Management's Discussion and Analysis of financial condition and results of operations) section in the financial statement, and learns the complexity of the statements such as readability and lexical diversity. And then they are converted into score. The more advanced tools of NLP than in the case of News Sentiment Score above can lead to our unique score.
One-quarter ahead financial numbers can be predicted through our product, AERIS, which is our simulation tool for financial forecasts. The score is calculated based on those forecasts. We have established our risk management tools for years, so the scores through those tools can be unique and different from those normally derived from financial data.
While the score is derived from widely-used financial data, it is almost uncorrelated with Fama-French 3 factors.
The composite of the 4 scores below, which are summed up by optimized weights for an objective.
Large international hedge funds and asset managers also use our data/scores.
