THE NEWS AND THE NOISE: AN INVESTOR'S GUIDE TO FINANCIAL MEDIA
This thesis compares the performance of various models that measure the relationship between news and stock price correlations. These models are analysed when they are applied on the different datasets. One dataset contains social media news while the other dataset contains news flows provided by Thomson Reuters. These datasets have consequently different characteristics. Social media news are much more dynamic, since it allows a wide range of audience an easy and fast access to gain and share information. On the other hand the news flow doesn’t spread as widely and quickly as the social media news flow. As a result of the different characteristics of these datasets, there is not one overall best performing model but one best performing model for each dataset.

In this work, we develop a system that analyzes unstructured financial news using text classification in order to forecast stock price trends. We review similar systems to build on successful ideas and combine them with novel approaches. We discuss the different types of news that are potentially relevant to the stock prices and choose news sources for the system accordingly. To eliminate irrelevant news, we present suitable filtering approaches such as the implementation of a rule-based thesaurus. We develop an automatic labeling approach and compare it to a manual labeling approach. We evaluate the influence of different automatic labeling approaches on the prediction performance. In a data training phase, we introduce a set of features novel with respect to the price forecasting task. We compare different text mining techniques such as the feature vector dimensionality reduction and different classifiers. Finally, we investigate the influence of trading costs on potential profits and run a market simulation that is able to support or reject the practical profitability of the system.

Media history in Kenya curves an upward trend from highly government controlled press in the 1970s to robust, critical and considerably free media in a globalized world. . Furthermore, news outlets have doubled since 2002 when the 24-year Moi regime came to an end. Social media outlets continue to offer alternative avenues to non-journalists. Moreover, news media interdependence and interconnectivity between local and global networks seems to be shifting justifications on which conflicts in Africa are reported. The 2007/08 political conflict in Kenya following a disputed presidential outcome plunged the country into a political crisis that ended after intervention from the international community. Reviewing media reporting during this conflict shows that globalization of both political power and the news media greatly contributed to the way journalists sourced, framed and primed news. The impact of globalization on the ways news media report conflict in the developing world is yet to be appreciated. For this reason, governments that have tended to control news media reporting are continually finding it harder to monitor what type and quantity of information people have access to.

Media has tried to cover water and environment sector for a long time. Within environment and water sector is urban water sector; this is generating a series of events that are converted into news. The underlying problem in relation to his coverage on urban water issues as news is there is little knowledge about media''s process of selecting water issues as news. And, what influences this coverage has on urban water management. This thesis attempts to find answers to this information gap. The study found that the process of news making requires new, unusual and controversial events that are selected through a series of gates; influenced by individual journalist''s traits and flair, combined with external and internal influences of market, politics, public and idealism. In urban water, events related to crisis, controversy, tariff, pollution and private sector participation are considered news worthy. However, consistency of coverage is lacking and the media loses interest in the issues. Mainstream media is poorly equipped to address urban water issues and requires to be trained. However, news media does influence urban water management.
