Project Description

It used to take days for financial news to spread via radio, newspapers, and word of mouth. Now, in the age of the internet, it takes seconds. Did you know news articles are automatically being generated from figures and earnings call streams? In this project, you will generate investing insight by applying sentiment analysis on financial news headlines from Finviz. Using this natural language processing technique, you will understand the emotion behind the headlines and predict whether the market feels good or bad about a stock.

The datasets used in this project are raw HTML files for the Facebook (FB) and Tesla (TSLA) stocks from, a popular website dedicated to stock information and news.
