The following Quantamize Top Buy stocks are top trending Russell 1000 stocks by sentiment over the last month.  
 

  • Virtu Financial, Inc. (VIRT) and its subsidiaries provide market-making technology and liquidity services through its technology platform to clients across the globe.
  • Virtu Financial is the top Russell 1000 stock trending by positive sentiment over the last month. Virtu’s has observed extremely positive Event Sentiment and Social Media Sentiment over the last 30 days.
     
  • FactSet Research Systems Inc. (FDS) is the provider of financial information and analytical applications to customers in the investment industry across the world.
  • FactSet Research maintains top 10 scores in Event Sentiment, Social Media Sentiment, and Article Count Sentiment categories relative to Russell 1000 Index constituents -- the stock’s overall sentiment rating is simply dragged down by a weak Event Sentiment score. FactSet’s positive sentiment over the last month paired with its “Top Buy” rating in our US Large-Cap model combine to form a strong outlook for the stock.
     
  • MSCI Inc. (MSCI) serves members of the global investment industry through its Index, Analytics, ESG, and Real Estate operating segments that provide investment decision support tools.
  • While MSCI Inc. is also a Top Buy stock in our US Large-Cap model, its overall sentiment score lags that of FactSet. Although the outlook for MSCI is positive, we are more biased towards FactSet due to its higher sentiment score.
     
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (TMO) is the provider of analytical instruments, laboratory equipment, software, consumables, reagents, instruments, various services, and more to biological and medical research customers across the globe.
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific is among the top Rusell 1000 stocks trending in the news based on the last month of data from global news outlets, driven by the stock’s superb Article Count score. With Thermo Fisher Scientific rated as a “Top Buy” US large-cap stock, paired with the company trending so positively in the news and shares down 5.67% month-to-date, this may be a strong investment opportunity.
     
  • Interesting to see Invesco Ltd. (IVZ) and Eaton Vance Corp. (EV) as two of the top 10 Russell 1000 stocks trending by positive 1-month sentiment. The change in sentiment surrounding these two companies could signal more confidence in asset managers among investors.
