27 Mar How dangerous is the data scandal for Facebook shares? News & Trend Lab insights
Everyone who trades shares knows how negative scandals can be for share prices. Just to mention three examples from the past:
1. Boing´s 787 Dreamliner disaster
2. VW´s emissions scandal „Dieselgate“
3. Steinhoff accounting scandal
In the course of these events, the shares of these companies fell significantly. A costly affair if one was not warned in time.
Aggregated sentiment indicators function as a valid early warning system and to estimate the impact of scandals.
With these sentiments and on the basis of their development, one can easily recognize when a scandal escalates and when it has passed its climax and de-escalates again.
You can follow this life with the current example of Facebook. Since the data scandal on 16 March 2018, Facebook (52-29%) has lost 21% of its sentiment. During the same period, a price loss of 17.5% ($183.10-150.94) was recorded. See above the YUKKA News Boards displaying the sentiment for Facebook.
