Public companies, telling your story to Active investors who have more outflows than inflows won't drive shareholder-value

Passive money drives shareholder value now. And Passive money buys characteristics, not story, and seeks the absence of volatility. We’ll help you:


Analytics and expertise to help investor relations teams, executives and Boards drive shareholder-value in quantitative markets

Quantitative Equity Intelligence

Know why your stock price moves by understanding market structure and the behavior of money in your shares, including the demographics of your trading volume. Have data to support why your stock fell when you released good news or why you underperform your peers. Understand your stock’s Passive characteristics, and how Demand and Supply change over time.

Activism Monitoring

Be alerted to patterns of Activist behavior in your shares before an Activist begins making demands. Track the impact of Proxy proposals and likelihood of success by measuring trading behavior.

Earnings Cycle Analytics

Avoid macro market events like expirations and understand market behavior in your shares to increase impact of your news and earnings. Leverage your stock’s Passive characteristics via keywords in heading, subheading, CEO quote, release text. Track market behavior before and after news. Message to machines that set most prices by understanding risks in your Demand/Supply balance beforehand. And match product (your stock) to consumers (Passives).

Deal Arbitrage Monitoring

Measure how hedge funds are betting and what the prospects are for regulatory and shareholder approval of your M&A.

Buyback Analytics

Coordinate with Treasury so you don’t compete with yourself in your buyback, have a defensible position under new SEC regulations, and understand whether your broker is doing a good job, all with our rules-based quantitative model.

Short Reporting

Understand the bear position in your shares with our Short Insights Report. Track short interest and short volume for your shares, peer companies, the sector and the market.

Transform Your Investor Relations Role

How Can Our Services Help You in Your IR Job?

Actionable data for a passive market

Shareholder-value today is largely determined by Passive money and driven by your stock’s characteristics. We offer a systematic process for accentuating characteristics and controlling the controllables.

A path for success in investor relations

Outperforming the market today is nearly impossible, yet giving the money what it wants to buy is relatively straightforward. We help you understand what the money is doing, and how to position your company in front of it.

Data that defends your exectutive team

Few things frustrate the c-suite more than executing on the business plan and seeing the stock slide. We slice data demographically to sort Active Investment from other behaviors – which often show that Story doesn’t cause declines.

Rules-based repurchase data framework

ModernIR offers a quantitative model that brings objectivity to buybacks – an essential advantage when deploying shareholder capital.

Powerful data analytics for activism, deals

You can hide positions in derivatives, but you can’t hide derivatives patterns, and we track them nearly in real-time.

The strategic advantage

A new strategy for reporting earnings in markets dominated by machines and quants.

 “Words of wisdom? Trading volume outside of Active buy-and-hold is not noise. It’s what the money is doing now. Passives and Quants buy your stock’s characteristics, not your story. It’s the job of the investor relations officer to control the controllables in this market, to drive shareholder value.”
