Alternative Data Newsletter #130 – August 8th, 2019

Key Highlights

  • Eagle Alpha Raises US$2.4m: we are delighted to announce a US$2.4m funding round, our largest since incorporation back in 2012. The primary use of proceeds will be the expansion of our data science, engineering and sales teams.
  • Research Analyst Thoughts: an Eagle Alpha report from July 9th, using trends in employment data from companies in  the semiconductor equipment industry, raised doubts about an expected second half industry recovery. The data was pointing to management controlling expenses, rather than hiring for expansion in business. LRCX and KLAC reported and validated the lack of any meaningful recovery in the industry in the near term.

Legal & Compliance

Insights from our latest webinar with Lowenstein Sandler: “What you’re able to see with binoculars or telescope is public. The issue is you cannot see every ship crossing the Atlantic, for example, as they can be far out in the ocean. You wouldn’t be able to identify where the ships are in the ocean through any public means if you didn’t have satellite imagery data.”
