Tout Cluster Prices
Average values across all clusters.
For each cluster, we collect data for the days surrounding the start and end of that cluster. The table below presents the average values for those data across all clusters. For example, the value under "Average Price," "Cluster Start," "-2" would be the average stock price two days before the start of a tout cluster.
|Cluster Start||Cluster End|
Average price of the stock on the days surrounding a tout cluster.
Average volume of the stock on the days surrounding a tout cluster.
Average Price Relative to Day Zero
Average price of the stock on the days surrounding a tout cluster, relative to the price of the stock on the day that the tout cluster started or ended. This differs from the "Average Price" row because there the highest-price touts influence the average more greatly; here the prices are normalized before averaging, so the relative price movement surrounding the start and end of clusters is readily visible.
Volume Relative to Median
Average volume of the stock on the days surrounding a tout cluster, relative to the median volume of the stock (based on all of the data we received on that stock). The graph will appear identical to the "Average Volume" graph, since the numbers in this row are the numbers in the "Average Volume" row divided by the median volume.
Table of All Touts
Clusters are indicated by alternating shading.
|Date||Number of Messages
The number of mesages containing this symbol that were received on the given day.
Touts are grouped into clusters. Tout dates listed below with the same cluster number are part of the same cluster. The numbers themselves are insignificant.
