Prioritization

The chart shows some of the most popular alternative data categories on the Eagle Alpha platform in the last 3 months. Up-to-date and full information is available to our Data Sourcing clients.

Quality Screening

We tested a dataset from a Chinese geo-location data vendor that covers over 650 publically listed companies in China and 15 largest transportation hubs. The footfall index clustering analysis shows that airports and train stations are mostly clustered together except the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, whose index started going down since the beginning of 2018, about 6 months ahead of other airports. Interestingly, companies such as Midea Group, TCL Corporation and China Grand Automotive share similar trends with Baiyun Airport, whose headquarters are all based in the Guangdong province.
