ModernIR Launches Predictive Analytics for Investor Relations Professionals

New Market Structure Alerts allow public companies to anticipate price and volume change

DENVER--()--ModernIR, the leader in providing equity market-structure insight and analytics to public companies, has announced the launch of Market Structure Alerts™ (MSA), reports that signal when significant fluctuations in trading and investment behavior are occurring. These variances are often precursors to stock-price change, activism, deal-arbitrage, investor-rotation and more. MSA apply algorithms to trade-execution data to identify and track when behaviors fall outside central tendencies customized for each client.

Market Structure Alerts were developed to help public companies better understand market behavior by flagging activity likely to impact forward price and volume. MSA are calculated daily, triggering automated email Alerts to affected clients.

“Market Structure Alerts are a unique innovation and have been well-received by our client base,” said Tim Quast, ModernIR president. “We’ve been studying trade-execution data for more than a decade so we’ve developed extensive experiential expertise in market behaviors and what they mean. Companies often react to what’s happened, and Market Structure Alerts power a sharply better business practice, which is to consistently measure what’s occurring in order to minimize surprises and improve equity-market management.”

Depending on the trade-execution data analysis, three Alerts are generated:

  • Rational Price Alert: Active investment sets price by buying shares, a dynamic measure of fair value.
  • Short Volume Alert: Predictive signals predicated on changes to borrowing behavior.
  • Behavioral Alerts: Any core market behavior (active, asset-allocation, fast trading and risk management) surges and whether change reflects buying or selling.

“We’ve moved far beyond historically available price and volume directional alerts to provide an explanation for what’s causing price and volume volatility,” said Brian Leite, ModernIR vice president of client service. “The MSA analytics are incredibly powerful, often signaling impending change before price and volume fluctuate. Investor relations professionals are now armed with timely, meaningful information about their equity trading.”
