• Stock Price Prediction Using Sentiment Analysis and LSTM

      Carter, Caymen (2022-05)
      This work presents multiple Long Short-Term Memory neural networks used in con- junction with sentiment analysis to predict stock prices over time. Multiple datasets and input features are used on a LSTM model to decipher which features produce the best output predictions and if there is correlation to the sentiment of posts and the rising of a stock. This project uses embedding based sentiment analysis on a dataset collected from Kaggle which includes over one million posts made on the subreddit r/wallstreetbets. This subreddit recently came under fire by the media with the shorting of Gamestop in the stock market. It was theorized that this subreddit was working as a collective to drive up the price of multiple stock, therefore hurting large corporations such as hedge funds that had large short positions on multiple stocks.
