Abstract

Text mining on a large scale that addresses actionable prediction needs to contend with noisy information in documents, and with interdependencies between the NLP techniques applied and the data representation. This paper presents an initial investigation of the impact of improved company mention detection for financial analytics using Named Entity recognition and coreference. Coverage of company mention detection improves dramatically. Improvement for prediction of stock price varies, depending on the data representation.
