Small-Cap Rockets identifies five 24 hour picks every day based on news sentiment and news buzz. The data and service powered by the conjoined efforts of SmarterAnalyst and TipRanks. Each week the award winning TipRanks financial algorithms gathers thousands of news articles. Our analysts found that by focusing on certain types of articles, specifically those with a very strong bullish sentiment, we are able to constantly beat the market. Our algorithm is able to pick the most promising stocks using a buzz indicator, which checks if any particular stock is getting more coverage than it usually would. Buzz combined with sentiment allows the NewsInvesting algorithm to identify where to invest when.

BPOSHA Indicator:

Bullish Percentage of High Sentiment Articles (BPOSHA) is our proprietary news trading signal. From all the news articles we collect we filter out the ones that have a solid bullish or bearish sentiment. BPOSHA tells you what percentage of the news regarding the specific stock is currently bullish. This signal is very unique as it only takes into account high value news, and not much of the machine automated articles which spam the internet.


The SmallCapRockets newsletter assumes all firmIditions are equally allocated (20% each), with a daily rebalancing at the market open. All returns are audited by TipRanks to ensure accuracy.

About SmallCapRockets

For decades researchers were interested in automatically detecting sentiment in texts. However, it was only in the last decade or so that professional trading institutions have been able to profitably do so. Information is converted from verbal (the news article), to numeric (the change in stock price) much quicker than in the past.

In the case of blue chip stocks, in the past positive or negative news could take days to reflect in the stock price. Today, because of algorithms using the same technology as we do, the investment decisions can be made in less than a second.

But, these large funds have one disadvantage to private investors, their sheer size. While you as a small investor might find it attractive to make $500 from a day trade investing only $2000, a large quant fund would not even bother with it. This is where SmallCapRockets comes in. By taking the power of this technology we are able to produce a portfolio uniquely attractive to private investors looking to capitalize on less covered small cap opportunities.

After scanning thousands of articles in real time using a scanning algorithm (or scraping in its technical term), we determine which article effects which stock. From there another algorithm determines whether this news is positive or negative, and finally a scoring methodology is applied. The more abnormal the coverage amount, and the stronger the sentiment the more likely we are to recommend that stock.

By analyzing recent stock price movements our algorithms identify stocks which under-reacted to positive news or over-reacted to negative news. The newsletter returned 4.11% for those who held the stocks for the recommended 24 hour period, far outperforming the S&P500’s return for the period of 1.4%.

SmallCapRockets offers amateurs a chance to day-trade, with clear entry and exit points, and a scalable model (you can invest in just the top pick each day, or all 5). For more advance traders it offers a strong starting point for detecting high value swing trades which can crush the annual market return in just one day.
