In this presentation, Yin Luo, Global Head of Quantitative Strategy at Deutsche Bank, examines a unique news analytics database provided by Ravenpack. He applies a suite of innovative machine learning algorithms, including adaBoost, spline regression, and other boosting/bagging techniques on both traditional and unstructured news data in predicting stock returns.
He finds news sentiment data adds significant incremental predictive power to his machine learning based global stock selection models.
