The above stocks are Russell 1000 stocks with the worst sentiment over the last month.  
 

  • Interesting to see two notable financials stocks, more specifically financial exchange and data stocks, as the number 1 and 2 Russell 1000 stocks with the worst 1-month sentiment. CBOE Global Markets, Inc. (CBOE) has very low Event Sentiment and Story Sentiment scores while MSCI Inc.’s (MSCI) is plagued by broadly negative sentiment across all categories. 
     
  • Wow, First Solar, Inc. (FSLR) is the third-worst Russell 1000 stock by negative 1-month sentiment with the worst Event Sentiment score and third-worst Story Sentiment score among Russell 1000 constituents. First Solar could be a high conviction short play -- yesterday, our models highlighted First Solar as a Top Short Stock Research Report, seen here
     
  • Surprising to see more than half of FAANG represented in the top Russell 1000 stocks by negative 1-month sentiment highlighted above! Despite such negative sentiment, there may be a contrarian opportunity available here.
     
  • While speaking on CNBC’s Trading Nation on Tuesday, Quantamize CIO Stephen Mathai-Davis discussed a call spread collar trade idea on Alphabet (GOOG.L), calling it, “our highest conviction idea.” You can check that out here.  
     
  • Although it may not be our highest conviction idea, Apple (AAPL) still maintains a “Top Buy” rating in the US Information Technology Global Top Stock Idea model. This could also be an interesting contrarian play as Apple faces negative sentiment from a Supreme Court ruling that users could sue the company for artificially inflating prices on its App Store.
