Preamble: One of the main questions that I had and I see recurring on this sub is how to identify and invest in emerging stocks before it becomes mainstream news. I did not have the time to actively track social media and decided to build a program that does it for me.
How does it work: The program is built using Python and uses both Twitter and Reddit API to stream comments and tweets and spot tickers that are exhibiting accelerated growth. I added sentiment analysis to the findings so as to check the general sentiment (whether what is being talked about the stock is positive or negative).
I had been testing the tool for the past 3 months and had to tweak the program to account for the increased bot activity following the GME hype (remove exact same comments posted multiple times, the same account spamming with one ticker etc.)
Here is the stock picked by the program and my DD
Stock: Corsair Gaming (CRSR)
Week on Week increase in mentions: 73%
Month on Month increase in mentions: 247%
Average sentiment across mentions: +34.6%
Corsair is the leading manufacturer of high-performance gear and technology for games and PC enthusiasts. Another important part of their portfolio is the brand Elgato which provides premium studio equipment and accessories for content creators, competitive gamers, and streamers. Currently, their products are in high demand and command a significant price premium against other brands.
Corsair currently has a net revenue of $1.7B (55% increase YoY) and a gross profit of 456MM (107% increase YoY). They had 84% increase in the sales of gamer and creator peripherals. Net income is 103MM compared to 8.4MM loss last year.
They had a gross margin improvement of 6.9% (lesser availability of parts allowed them to jack up their margins) and paid off $190MM debt in 2020. (Current debt of $321MM with $133MM cash in hand)
Potential and Hype Factor
People are increasingly spending more and more time on video games and Corsair caters to the premium segment in this market. Adding to this, the current explosion in Twitch viewership and Corsair’s marketing strategy of sponsoring famous streamers to showcase their premium gear further adds to the product demand.
The company is also benefitting greatly from the changing landscape due to the ongoing Covid crisis. As more and more people stay home and abstain from their regular hobbies, they have turned to d... keep reading on reddit ➡
I think people don't understand the amount of courage it takes to say you fked up to an audience of over 1.5 million subscribers (on the Cyberpunk Youtube Channel).
And for what, there is no 'personal gain' for apologizing, The co-founder of CDPR is a Billionaire that can honestly spend his time sipping tea while laughing his way to the bank after Cyberpunk sold 13million copies.
People are way too overly dramatic comparing this to an oilspill that killed marine life and will take ages to clean up the environmental impact, this is just some game.
I’ve just made a comment in r/AskUK saying that Americans frequently use last names to refer to people, and I got massively downvoted. American expat in the UK also said it’s not a thing in America.
If our friend is named Mike Palmer, and I’m a regular American kid, would we not refer to him as Palmer? Am I really wrong about this? My claim is that it’s just common in America.
Post a comment with the title of a book you liked and someone else responds with a book that has something in common with yours, BUT at first glance both books are nothing alike.
That thing in common can be anything from a similar secondary plot line, characters that look alike, a quote used in both books, a book set in the same year but in a different country, both books have a scene set in cotton fields, very similar covers or titles… or even, a story that has a similar premise but the complete opposite conclusion, the point of view of the opposing side, etc.
For example, someone might say “Do androids Dream of Electric Sheep” and in response get “The Feline Plague”. What the two have in common is that in both worlds humans treat pets as a status symbol.
I think we can end up with some curious recommendations!
(Please tell us why you suggested that book!)
Which NBA players get the most negative tweets? According to a new study:
Source >"He'll check his mentions at halftime, when he has a bad half. It's the craziest sh-t I ever saw," Bogut said on a recent episode of his Rogue Bogues podcast (go to the 52-minute mark). "Yeah, Steph, if he had a bad half, he would go on social media and then come out and drop 30 [in the second half]."
Feeling extremely deflated. Plenty of cherry picked questions about totally inconsequential topics like hairstyles and pets, but nary any mention of changes to retail PvP for the remainder of Shadowlands. Yesterday we got some hint of honor talents that they will expound upon, but does anyone really think that pvp talents are the most pressing issue in this game?
We desperately need a solo-queue option for 1v1/2's/3's/6v6 and hopefully some rework of LFG, even cross-faction grouping for arenas/rbg's so the community isn't so split. I haven't played for over 6 weeks and guess I won't be coming back if nothing's going to change.
There is a show on Netflix called Bo on the Go. It’s cute enough, animation is passable, and the premise is that the main character needs viewers to complete physical movements to give her “energy.” Hop like a bunny, climb like a monkey, etc.
My kids have seen this before, didn’t really care for it. Well, today I grabbed the remote, and every time Bo asked viewers to complete a movement, I paused the TV and said “oh no! Bo can’t keep doing her show for you unless you give her energy!” ... they loved it! Two boys running in place, jumping, reaching, stretching, all while mama sits back to relax.
Maybe this would work for someone else’s kids too - best of luck!!
Ps: funny story. So I was cooking dinner and my older son snuck the remote away from me. The next time Bo asked for a movement, he paused the TV. I said “uh oh, what happened?” (Not realizing he had the remote in his hands) and he replied, “Mom, Bo can’t keep doing her show until you jump like a kangaroo!”

I posted this because most of it seems pretty reasonable and not too out there. Seems like a mix of mostly things we know/are heavily rumored along with other things like a MC platformer or new Viva Pinata that hasnt been mentioned much
