Stock market news sentiment generally refers to the overall tone or mood of online chatter about an individual stock, topics pertaining to stocks, of the market as a whole. By our definition, online chatter includes news stories, social media posts, and blog articles, and any other written medium (eventually it may also include audio- or video-based mediums as well). The term sentiment broadly refers to any measurable indicators of mood, tone, or attitude being expressed about a given subject. This sentiment can (and often does) have an impact on the attitudes and behaviors of investors. For example: if the majority of news stories about a stock have a positive sentiment, it could help to boost investor confidence and encourage buying activity. On the other hand, if the majority of news stories have a negative sentiment, it could lead to decreased investor confidence and selling activity.

Measuring news sentiment: The Uptrends sentiment metric is a weighted average of the sentiment expressed across all relevant sentences about a given stock, entity, or topic or a given period of time. For each sentence (snippet), sentiment compilation of indicators that each measure some aspect of a given text snippet’s tone and quality. They are: mood, tense, relevance, and credibility. The composite sentiment score weighs each of these metrics in terms of their absolute value at a given moment in time, their divergence from their historical average, and their rate of change over time; measured on a sentence-by-sentence basis. The composite sentiment score is normalized on a scale from -100 to +100, where -100 represents maximum pessimistic (bearish) sentiment, and +100 represents maximum optimistic (bullish) sentiment.

Uptrends currently monitors and sends news alerts for roughly ~5,000 publicly traded stocks in the US. We are constantly expanding the number of stocks that you're able to set alerts for, so if your not able to find a particular stock you care about receiving alerts for, send us a message and we will work on adding it.
Whether or not Uptrends is able to monitor a given stock is affected by a few components:
The variety and frequency of alerts you receive is based on your subscription tier. Subscription details can be viewed in our pricing section here
Limited tier: with a Limited (free) subscription, you'll receive real-time alerts for two major event types: 1) price changes, and 2) news surges. Price change alerts are sent whenever a stock's price changes by >5% within a given day. News surge alerts are sent whenever a stock's news volume changes significantly over the course of a given day compared to its average historical news volume. For stocks with frequent news coverage, this is triggered if news increases more than 25% in a given day. For stocks with sparse news coverage (an average of less than 1 mention per day), this is triggered if and when it has more than 10 mentions within a 24-hr period.
Essentials tier: with an Essentials subscription, you'll receive real-time price change and news surge alerts, along with the following types of events: sentiment changes (significant changes in the average news sentiment expressed), trending topics (high volume of mentions about a stock pertaining to a singular topic, ie: AI, inflation, etc.), earnings chatter, lawsuits, mergers & acquisitions, executive activity, whale activity (ie. large investors in the company), analyst ratings and revisions, bankruptcy rumors, and FDA approval. You are limited to receiving up to 10 total alerts per week.
Pro tier: with a Pro subscription, you receive all of the event alert types included on the Essentials plan, plus custom keyword alerts that you can define yourself (ie. "send me an alert if this stock is mentioned alongside 'Elon Musk'"). There is no cap on the amount of total alerts you can receive per week.
You can adjust your alert preferences in your Dashboard. Here, you can see your watchlist of stocks, interest groups, and event types you will receive alerts for, and can add/remove each accordingly. For example, if you'd like to remove a stock from your watchlist, you can deselect it by unclicking the 'star' icon. To adjust your event type notifications, under the Alert Types tab you can toggle on and off which events you will receive email notifications for. If you are on a Pro plan, this is also where you can set custom keyword preferences.
