With hundreds of companies holding earnings conference calls within narrow timeframes, the challenge of capturing the full breadth of information they contain is ubiquitous. Analysts and investors are left with no choice but to prioritize their attendance — a decision that hampers their ability to capture the full breadth of short-term opportunities. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is the trump card for analysts and investors to capture alpha in Earnings Season.

RavenPack’s Chief Data Scientist Peter Hafez and his team will discuss the five most recent research papers that illustrate the new ways to leverage NLP earnings intelligence to capture more alpha.
