Build on the wisdom of the crowds
Public sentiment as reflected in online discussions, rumors and news stories can be a major indicator of a company or stock’s performance. By monitoring information as it disseminates across the web, you can collect a valuable source of data that’s ripe for further mining and insight generation.
Webhose saves you the gruntwork by delivering the structured web data you need. Now you can immediately start looking for crucial financial signals, instead of wasting time and resources on writing crawlers and parsers.
Enrich your predictive analytics and risk modeling
Even your most sophisticated algorithms won’t get you very far without sufficient data points. Webhose gives you instant access to a massive repository of new and historical data, in a unified format that can be easily plugged into your existing code.
With a simple Boolean query, you can tap into structured, laser-focused data feeds for every company or subject matter you can think of – closing gaps in your coverage and giving you a strong data infrastructure to predict the future behavior of stocks, companies and individuals.
Get a more complete perspective of companies, persons and entities
Analyst briefings and shareholder reports rarely tell the entire story. To truly understand the market you want to look at as many relevant data points as you can, from a diverse range of sources – and the web is a critical source of alternative data that grows bigger and richer every second.
Webhose lets you expand your viewing field and eliminate blind spots by looking at news, online discussions and reviews of a company or product as they spread across the open and dark web, through formal and informal channels.
Test your hypotheses with historical data
Identified an interesting correlation? Think you might be onto something? Put it to the test with real-world data. Our historical data can be used to you check whether your current-day predictive models would have worked if applied at a certain point in the past.
The Webhose archive gives you access to 10 years’ worth of crawled web data from thousands of online websites, stored exactly as it was in its publication date. Starting at $0.0002 per post, you can extract a custom dataset on any topic that made the headlines in the last ten years.
