  • H&R Block Inc. (HRB) provides assisted income tax return preparation, do-it-yourself tax solutions, and other services related to income tax returns primarily for the general public.  
    • H&R Block has the worst negative sentiment in Russell 1000 over the last month with Event Sentiment, Story Sentiment, and Article Count scores that all rank as the fourth-worst among index constituents.  
       
  • Proctor & Gamble Company (PG) offers branded consumer packaged goods through brands such as Oral-B, Tide, and Chairman to customers across the globe. 
    • Proctor and Gamble ranks as the second-worst Russell 1000 stock by overall negative sentiment driven by Event Sentiment, Story Sentiment, and Article Count scores that rank in the bottom 10 among index constituents.  
       
  • The Boeing Company (BA) and its subsidiaries develop, manufacture, service, and sell commercial aircrafts, military aircrafts, satellites, missile defense systems, human space flight technologies, and services to customers across the globe. 
    • Boeing maintains the third-worst sentiment over the last month in the Russell 1000 Index driven by a bottom three Entity Sentiment score. Because Entity Sentiment measures sentiment related to a company rather than a story or event relating to the company, we can infer that Boeing’s poor Entity Sentiment score is the result of lingering negative sentiment from the Boeing 737 Max plane crash earlier in the year.  
       
  • Interesting to see that PG&E Corporation (PCG) is near the top of the list of Russell 1000 stocks by negative sentiment. PG&E faced a slew of negative press as it faced accusations that its equipment started a wildfire that tore through California in late 2018. PG&E’s poor sentiment score, which like Boeing is driven by its Entity Sentiment rank, is likely the result of this event. Worth noting, however, that PG&E reached a $1 billion sentiment related to damages from the wildfire today, so sentiment may improve from here on out.  
     
  • Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV) is the operator of passenger airlines that offer scheduled air transportation services in the United States and specific international markets.  
    • Southwest maintains poor sentiment scores across all of its underlying sentiment categories, but like PG&E and Boeing, Southwest’s overall negative sentiment is driven by a poor underlying sentiment score in Entity Sentiment.  
       
  • Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (ICE) is the owner and operator of regulated exchanges, clearing houses, and listing platforms for commodity, financial, fixed income, and equity markets across the globe.  
    • Intercontinental Exchange has the tenth-worst Article Count score among Russell 1000 stocks while its Story Sentiment score is also poor, ranking in the bottom 25 of the index.
