DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ModernIR, the leader in providing equity market-structure insight and analytics to public companies, has announced the launch of its Key Metrics Report, a tool for investor relations (IR) professionals to provide a scorecard of equity trends to management.
Delivered weekly to subscribers, the report tracks six central drivers behind price and volume so public company executives can observe and monitor period-over-period changes in a highly visual, quick-glance format. Metrics show trends in fair value, sentiment, lead price-setter, shorting, dollar-flows and investor-engagement.
The report is the latest step in ModernIR’s effort to move executives away from reacting to stock price, and toward consistently measuring a core set of drivers. In doing so, emerging trends that may cause sharp moves can be seen proactively.
“In a market now dominated by passive investment, it’s vital to know when it’s about you, and when it’s not,” said Tim Quast, ModernIR president. “Otherwise your board may have an incorrect understanding of what’s setting your price. They should know when price moves relate to company fundamentals and when they are a product of arbitrage, passive investment or other factors.”
Quast notes that for 40 years IR professionals have been reacting when the stock jumps or falls, calling the listing exchange or traders for answers as though today is a silo disconnected from yesterday. “It’s a guess rather than an answer,” he said. “Companies should be tracking trends and drivers as businesses do in every other market.”
