Sentiment is a score or ranking of how a group of investors or investment professionals "feel" about news and investments. The sentiment comes from multiple sources: Twitter, Blogs, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. Some sentiment is from market professionals or their Artificial Intelligence equivalents that monitor news stories, public filings, speeches, or other public sources.

The sentiment is quantified on a range from pessimistic to optimistic about the company or the specific news.
