Reason

The world is filled with conflicting ideas of what companies are worthy of investment, and choosing the wrong source to trust can prove costly.

How it works

This takes a sample from online communities who give their opinion about the stock in question. The overall sentiment is calculated and given to the user.

Why is this useful?

Humans are bad at unbiased research of stocks, especially those they are involved in. By quantifying and averaging out the sentiment from many sources, we can avoid the bias of an individual, and instead see how an entire community feels.

Moving forward

The current algorithm for calculating the percentage isn't very advanced. The numbers would be much more meaningful if I had time to backtest and watch live market data. The front-end also needs work, I'm not a fan of the mobile layout.
