Samir Saadi

New Study Focuses on Social Media Data and Investor Sentiment

Finance researchers are watching with interest as postings on social media are increasingly mined for business insights. Assistant Finance Professor Samir Saadi thinks they just might be the new tea leaves of market sentiment, enabling investors to pick IPO stocks with more confidence and avoid investing in over-priced IPOs. Managers could benefit too. “Each year, IPO firms leave billions of dollars ‘on the table’ by underpricing, and pay millions in underwriting fees as a result of uncertainty around their valuations,” says Saadi, who was recently awarded a $74,718-grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for his study, “Social media, investor sentiment, and initial public offerings.” He anticipates that as the means to exploit social media for its predictive power become more efficient and reliable, “managers will potentially save millions of dollars by reducing the risk of capital underpricing and also boosting their negotiation power vis-à-vis underwriters.” Read more ›
