How can investors use it?

What is Semantics Vision Data?

Semantic Visions’s dataset covers over 1.1 million news articles daily across 12 languages. This extensive coverage offers a comprehensive view of global sentiment, empowering investors with a wealth of information for decision-making.

What is a Modeling Approach?

Modeling approach involves defining an investment or trading strategy and then using the data to systematically trade per the strategy in efforts to capture the outperformance potential.
For the media sentiment data of Semantic Visions, AltHub have developed a data transformation methodology to aggregate the sentiment on a stock across all published media. This transformed data is then used in a machine learning model to predict next day stock price returns.

What Are Potential Results?

Data modeling and portfolio backtesting have shown great alpha potential in the data with consistent outperformance over market benchmarks like the S&P500 and NASDAQ100 to the tune of 15.6% and 15.4% annualised alpha over the respective indices. Notably, in our backtesting, the short strategies (which short sell the stocks that the model forecasts negative returns) have performed the best with minimal losses during market rallies and outsized returns in market downturns.
