Scatter Stocks - Visualize Impact of News on Stocks
A way to dive into how different news events impact share prices
Scatter Stocks was inspired by a Bloomberg article on how companies kept getting “Amazoned”. To be Amazoned means to have your business crushed because the company got into your industry. Embedded within their article was a graph called Bezos Bombshells. It was a great visualization that displayed how different shares rose and fell based on news from Amazon. For example, when Amazon accquired Whole Foods, stocks of Walmart and Kroger dipped.
