Abstract: 

 

Can one forecast a firm’s future financial performance such as profitability without reading its accounting books? In this talk, we show that mining firm-related events in public news can effectively predict various firm financial ratios. By exploiting state-of-the-art neural architectures, our news-powered deep learning models outperform standard econometric models operating on precise historical accounting data. We also observe forecasting quality improvement in multi-task learning settings, i.e., when multiple financial ratios are predicted simultaneously. Our forecasting models (and byproducts such as attention maps and firm embeddings) benefit various stakeholders with not only quality predictions but also explainable insights, in particular when accounting data is not available.
