TickerTags by M Science Launches First Written Research Reports

First company-specific research to use sophisticated mention frequency analytics to derive investment insight

M Science, the leader in data-driven research and analytics, has announced the launch of TickerTags by M Science. Leveraging TickerTags’ unique tag mention frequency metric, 10 initial research reports have been produced across the TMT, consumer, automotive, and healthcare global end-markets providing real-time conversational context as a unique key performance indicator.

In the coming weeks, TickerTags will enable a web-based platform to access insights from the ontology and data sources directly. This further sets M Science apart from its competitors as TickerTags offers a new and differentiated investment tool that is complementary to M Science’s core offering of data driven research and analytics. This announcement follows TickerTags recent acquisition by M Science, on June 1, 2018.

“TickerTags by M Science is symbolic of an evolution within the investment industry, making greater use of alternative data,” said Michael V. Marrale, CEO of M Science. “By launching TickerTags by M Science, we can better leverage our world class technology and infrastructure as well as our deep and broad research team, to drive better results for our clients.”

TickerTags utilizes its ontology of approximately 1 million tags across nearly 3,000 investable assets to uncover alpha-generating insights for new investments or risk management of current portfolios. This unique approach of applying the ontology to contextualize data sources is key to deriving mention frequency. Mention frequency, or the level of the conversations on a given topic, is a dependable investment metric, and is often a leading indicator versus transaction data.

Mark Bachman, head of TickerTags by M Science, said “TickerTags by M Science represents a significant advancement for the entire industry. As contextualized data becomes more pervasive in the way conversations evolve online, TickerTags by M Science will play an even larger role in empowering institutional investors to make investment decisions backed by data science.”
