The Sentieo Dashboard: A Customizable Home For Your Research

Modern investment processes require the consumption of vast amounts of information from disparate datasets, including news, documents, financials, and your own data. Since these datasets are often living in different places, you might be incurring an accumulation of switching costs that is losing you hours of productivity per week.

Sentieo’s new Dashboard aggregates relevant information across datasets so that you don’t miss key information or lose efficiency from switching contexts to find information. This new interface is comprised of widgets that you can customize to fit your workflow. Whether you are using Sentieo for documents, note-taking, financials, or alternative data, you will want to utilize your Dashboard.

Prices, Financials, Thesis and Alternative Data

The Price Monitor helps you prioritize your portfolio down to your most important companies or tickers. In addition to providing prices and financials, the Price Monitor integrates your alternative data and custom thesis data for a truly cutting-edge process.

For the first time, you can figure out which of your watchlist companies have upside to your own price target, which are trading cheap relative to historical multiples, and which show sentiment at all time highs!

Documents, Saved Searches, Notes, and News

With so much information disseminated across documents, broker research, news, and tweets, it’s really easy to miss pieces of information that could impact your decision making. The Dashboard integrates all of these content sources so that you’re getting the best insights.

A New Way to Work

Gain productivity by accessing the data (from multiple sources) that is most relevant to your entire portfolio. In addition to surfacing the new insights you find from accessing a broader range of data, you will also get back hours of time savings. Try out Sentieo today.

We’ve Added 650+ News and Industry Sources To Sentieo’s Document Search

Sentieo’s industry-leading Document Search welcomes a major new addition: over 650 sources from a leading news provider, inclusive of mainstream publications and industry journals going back 2+ years. This new feature will be available to all current clients as a 30-day trial: please contact your account executive or customer success manager for details, or just contact general support.

We’ve expanded Sentieo’s existing searchable document database that already includes global corporate filings, transcripts, presentations, broker research, and any internally generated documents or notes that you’ve uploaded, such as private deal documents and thesis write-ups.  

These news sources are now an integral part of the Document Search function, with the same full set of advanced functionalities that our clients praise. The integration also means that you get a fuller, global news source coverage for the companies you follow, all in one convenient location.

Full AI-Driven Search: These news sources are (1) fully indexed and searchable with our full suite of synonyms, proximity, Boolean, and other specifications, as well as our improved Relevance scoring, and (2) they go back two years. Users also have granular control over which sources they want included, just as they already do with different filing types or with broker research.

 

Document Ticker Tagging: The articles are auto-tagged with the tickers you are researching, and they work with your existing Watchlists, saving you hours that you may have previously spent organizing.

 

Integration With Sentieo’s Notebook: just like with any other corporate document, the news and industry journals’ text is highlightable, already tagged with the primary ticker, and ready for your additional tagging/annotation, and sharing. Your highlight will then be fully searchable by ticker and tags, just like a highlight from a filing or a transcript.

 

Saved Search Alerts: Sentieo’s saved search alerts already solve a major pain point for knowledge workers by automating and pushing relevant information as it becomes available. Alerts from the newly added sources work just like all other saved search alerts on the platform.

Here are the industries that our partnership covers:

  • Consumer Discretionary
  • Consumer Staples
  • Energy and Utilities
  • Financial & Real Estate
  • Health Care
  • Industrials
  • Macroeconomic
  • Materials
  • Technology & Telecom

Plus:

  • Regulatory Sources
  • Press Releases

 

You can download the full source list hereAgain, please contact your account executive or customer success manager for details, or just contact general support. 

We’ll be having a webinar on April 10th (sign up here) that will cover everything you need to know about searching through these additional sources in Sentieo.

Introducing Table Explorer: Enhanced Table Extraction and Analysis Across Time

At Sentieo, we are always striving to give fundamental managers the tools to make better decisions faster. Table Explorer (TableX), the next iteration of our suite of table analysis tools, was developed with this vision in mind.  

Model-building is an essential part of the investment process of fundamental managers. Models afford them the ability to develop a deep and differentiated understanding of the machinery of a business, via the interplay between revenues, expenses, and capital accounts. Models also allow for a parameterized flex of assumptions for establishing a differentiated view on a company’s earnings prospects and — by extension — the value of the business overall.

While modeling is critical to the process, the investment world is increasingly driven by algorithm-enabled trading and the large data science departments of multi-billion-dollar hedge funds. Therefore, managers are obligated to pay close attention to the areas where modeling and data visualization can happen faster, and more accurately.

At Sentieo, we believe in an augmented investing approach that uses machine learning and data science to add value to a human-driven investing process.

We’ve rebuilt our table suite from the ground up using a machine learning driven approach validated by trained financial analysts. The new TableX enables Excel-style visualization directly from company filings in a dual-pane window, showing both the Excel data and the source document side by side, enabling an immediate audit of every number.

We’ve added the ability to quickly plot discrete line items in the same window, enabling simple thesis exploration either as a complement or antecedent to further model work. We’ve also added inline calculations to impute fourth-quarter numbers from 10K data, common size analysis, and YoY or QoQ percentage changes. And we show a table of contents of all tables in a document to speed up navigation through company filings.

table explorer table extraction

Then, we integrated TableX with our Plotter app, to further facilitate regression analysis of fundamental metrics like revenue with other metrics like exogenous macroeconomic data or website traffic.

We also integrated TableX with our Notebook app to facilitate thesis sharing among a team or when reporting to a portfolio manager. These workflow tools help money managers develop ideas faster and stay more organized with their ideas.

Lastly, we facilitate export to Excel so that the audited financial data can be used as a backing database for your own models.  We include links back to the document in the export, and in future releases, we will enable “one-click” refreshing of base data sheets in models.

The end goal of Table Explorer is to give fundamental money managers the tools to observe-orient-decide-act faster, in order to win in a high velocity investing landscape. Get a free trial of Sentieo here, or tell us what you think of the new TableX!

Introducing Sentieo Relevance Search

Sentieo’s overarching mission is to augment human decision-making through the application of the latest technologies. We are proud to demonstrate this with our most recent improvement to the platform:

Sentieo Continues to Lead In Search Tech with Relevance Search

Clients already love our smart Document Search, which offers:

  • tens of millions of documents, searchable across many dimensions
  • 1000+ synonyms/acronyms
  • extended Boolean operators and proximity
  • in-section/in-table/in-footnote searches
  • saved search alerts
  • extensive document tagging including sell-side report classifications
  • search statistics for quantifying trends
  • seamless integration into notes, and much more.

The newly released Relevance scoring algorithm, custom-built by our global team of data scientists, will surface documents most likely to be relevant to your search based on multiple factors derived from the statistical properties of the documents and the queries. For example, some of the factors considered are density within the document (inclusive of synonym matches), clustering, and recency. Relevance scoring is based on true machine learning and will only improve as Sentieo DocSearch “learns” over time. It gives you, the user, more time to focus on analysis where you add value, rather than on tedious searches.

But we didn’t stop there. Another new sorting option is Sorting by Hits — because we know that sometimes you need the most recent documents at the top, sometimes you need the document with the most hits (mentions), and sometimes you need the one that is the most relevant. You can now toggle between these sorting options in one click, which allows you to compare the results before you dive in. You can also sort by document size and by ticker for your multi/all ticker searches. You are in control of the format that fits your needs.

Users will find relevance searches suitable for broad initial overviews of topics: your search might pick up sector primer reports from the sell side, or a very topical deck from a corporate. Users more familiar with a topic might still prefer the reverse-chronological order of documents for the latest on the topic. And, for people getting specifically into details, we have the specialized searches, such as in-transcript, said-by-the-CEO, or in-table searches that let you find the numbers around your topic within seconds.

relevance

And there is still a lot more to come. The 2019 Document Search product pipeline is better than ever, and you will see additional applications of AI/ML coming soon!

Introducing Sentieo’s Game-Changing Transcript Sentiment and Linguistic Analysis Features

Over the last year, the Sentieo team has been investing heavily in NLP & data science. We were very excited to release the Sentieo’s Transcript Intelligence Report, which is the first of many features built on a powerful new technology that lets us dissect documents and help you find insight.

There is signifcant amount of academic research that supports the idea that changes in sentiment among those in company management, as well as those working as analysts, do indeed have some relationship with stock returns.

Management is typically a negative predictor of stock returns. When management seems overly excited about the future, this may indicate that the stock will underperform. (See “Manager Sentiment and Stock Returns,” Journal of Financial Economics). On the other hand, when investor sentiment is low, subsequent returns are relatively high on a subset of stocks (high volatility stocks, unprofitable stocks, non-dividend-paying stocks, extreme-growth stocks, and distressed stocks), consistent with an initial underpricing of these stocks. (See “Investor Sentiment in the Stock Market,” Journal of Economic Perspectives).

Our Transcript Intelligence Report provides automatic analysis on how sentiment and keywords for a given company have changed across quarters. The analysis easily splits out Management Sentiment vs. Analyst Sentiment. Let’s use Netflix as our example.

First, we open up Sentieo Document Search and search for Netflix transcripts. We choose a transcript in the left hand navigation, and see a “View Linguistic Intelligence Report” button at the top of the document in the right hand pane.

Sentiment Scores

Sentiment scores are generated by tagging each word in the document as positive, negative, or neutral using a dictionary designed for financial documents and applying a formula to generate a score for each section. The formula for sentiment is below:

The number (typically a decimal value below 0.1) is a percentage that should be considered on a relative basis, rather than absolute.

Management Sentiment

The following chart shows sentiment for Management commentary and Q&A answers on eight quarters of earnings calls. Sentiment is calculated as positive word % of total words – negative word % of total words.

Analyst Sentiment

The following chart shows sentiment for Analysts from the Q&A section of eight quarters of earnings calls. Sentiment is calculated as positive word % of total words – negative word % of total words.

 

 

 

Management-Analyst Sentiment Spread

The following chart shows the historical spread between Management and Analyst sentiment.

The spread between the two would suggest divergences in sentiment. For example, if the spread turned negative, then it is possible that management has turned less bullish while analysts have remained bullish, thereby signaling the potential for management to disappoint in future periods.
