Most Squeezable U.S. Stocks | S3 Partners Guest Blog

The recent rally off the June 16 lows (S&P 500 +5.36%, Nasdaq +7.57%, Russell 3000 +5.42%) has made some crowded shorts more squeezable. We have seen the number of highly squeezable stocks in our Squeeze metric since June 15 more than double, and our average squeeze score has increased by over 250% (from 12.22 to 31.48). The Consumer Discretionary (primarily auto) and HealthCare (Biotech) sectors have the most constituents in the top 25 most squeezable stocks.

Alternative Data for Private Markets

Alternative Data for Private Markets

Alternative data is increasingly being used in private markets, including private equity, real estate, credit, and infrastructure, across deal origination, due diligence, and post-acquisition value creation and risk mitigation. Initially, interest in alternative data began when companies wanted additional information around digital market spend comparisons and reputation and social media review comparisons.

External Data: How Consultants and Their Clients Are Profiting From It

External Data: How Consultants and Their Clients Are Profiting From It

External data, commonly known as alternative data, is any data generated from outside an organization, with examples including employment data, geolocation data, social media data, and consumer transaction data. The data is derived from two main sources (i) data companies that are set up to monetize data and (ii) companies that have “exhaust” data to monetize. The data revolution is being driven by developments in cloud computing, advances in data science, and rapid data creation.​The goal of this report is to showcase the art of what is possible with external data through the lens of consultants working with corporate and private equity to implement data-driven decision-making.  This report leans heavily on contributions from leaders in the consultancy space including EY, Bain & Company, West Monroe, Strategy Titan, and Asgard Data.

Alternative Data for Tracking Employment Trends

Alternative Data for Tracking Employment Trends

Employment data has been the 4th most popular alternative data category on the Eagle Alpha data discovery platform over the past 12 months, seeing a 40% YoY increase in the number of employment datasets onboarded. Job listings data provide asset managers holistic information on total employee count, job functions, skills, gender, and tenure which can then be used to measure firm performance, hiring strategy, employee turnover, headcount growth, and estimate expenses. Employment data can also take the form of employee profiles and company reviews which can help measure employee perception and sentiments, thus providing a good use case not only for firms dealing with public equities but also for private equity in the form of deal origination analysis and due diligence.

Profiting From Data with CLS and the Largest Single Source of FX Executed Data Available to the Market

Profiting From Data with CLS and the Largest Single Source of FX Executed Data Available to the Market

This episode features an interview with Femi Opeodu, Head of Data Product and Distribution at CLS Group. Femi began his data journey while at Bloomberg, focusing on growing the commodity side of the business across the globe. His time at Bloomberg helped him realize that if the global economy can be likened to the human body, then foreign exchange is the blood in circulation. Having earned his stripes experiencing how effective alternative data can be for commodities, Femi now works with CLS, a data vendor providing unique and relevant alternative data on the FX market since 2002. On this episode, Femi talks about historic events, such as the fall of Herstatt Bank, that acted as a backdrop for the formation of CLS, the focus on capturing flow, volume, and pricing data for the buyer market, and the importance of focusing on executed trades rather than quotes in FX trading data. He also discusses trends and flows in the FX market and what’s coming down the line for CLS including the expansion of available currencies and increasing frequency of data for clients. Please enjoy this dialogue between Femi and your host, Niall Hurley.
