BOSTON, MA – October 7, 2020 – Wall Street Horizon, the leading provider of market-moving corporate event data, today announced a partnership with RavenPack, a financial technology company in the text-analytics space. In this initial offering, the powerhouse combination of RavenPack sentiment information and Wall Street Horizon event data together produce even stronger returns for investors.

By keeping institutional investors and traders apprised of critical earnings date revisions, they can take advantage of – or avoid – short-term volatility in a given security.

In a recent study, the RavenPack quantitative research team explored how changes in earnings announcement dates can offer valuable insights about stock price moves surrounding earnings events. The research paper provided more evidence that confirms findings from previous studies that depict earnings delays can signal weak performance, while advancing the date may be a sign of good news.

“We are pleased to collaborate with RavenPack starting with our flagship differentiators in the marketplace – Core Events Data and DateBreaks (earnings date revisions),” said Barry L. Star, CEO, Wall Street Horizon. “We look forward to expanding this key partnership based on their quant research team findings.”
