Why is Social Sentiment Important? and Where Can You Track it?

As we have seen over the past couple of years, there were a good handful of "Social Sentiment Stocks" like GME and AMC that skyrocketed based almost solely off of social sentiment. As a result of this, many people have started to pay attention to the social sentiment behind stocks.

Out of the several NIO Inc. (NIO) stock discussion available to for investors to share their opinions and discuss their favourite stocks, there are 2 stock discussion forums that influence NIO's social sentiment more than any others. These 2 stock discussion forums include NIO Stocktwits and NIO Twitter.

The Utradea Social Sentiment Dashboard allows you to track real-time trends and insights for NIO Inc. discussions and NIO Inc. conversations.

  • 1.56M Impressions (up 204.29% day over day)

The social sentiment in the Nio Stocktwits community has soared over the past 24 hours. This is mainly due to NIO Stock being down over 7% in premarket trading. This decrease was due to a short seller report from "Grizzly Reports" saying that Nio was "inflating their car sales through their Battery as a Service (BaaS) business segment. JP Morgan was quick to release an article defending NIO and completely picking apart the arguments/points made within Grizzly's report. Overall, this large premarket decrease seems to be nothing but unwarranted selling due to a potentially fradulent short seller report. Natirally, investors had quite the reaction to this news on the NIO Stocktwits Forum, hence the large uptick in their social sentiment.
