Alternative Data Newsletter #128 – July 26th, 2019

Key Highlights

  • Alternative Data for Corporates: Eagle Alpha’s first white paper for corporates has been published. We illustrate how corporates can unlock the potential of alternative data for acquisition, competitive analysis, manufacturing, customer insights, R&D and more. Download the white paper here.
  • Netflix and App Data: last week, Netflix missed its subscriber expectations by 46%, the first quarter in history where they’ve lost users in the U.S. As a result, its share price fell 15%. Whilst many investors were caught off guard, funds that used App Data were better informed. By using this type of alternative data you would have got insight into download and daily active users and would have seen a 20% drop in downloads and a 5% drop in active users before the earnings release.

Contact us to read the full report.
