News or Factors That Affect Stock Prices

Many People has always wondered how news or different factors has an effect on stock prices. Essentially, It has two parts

First- The type of News of Factor
Second- Its nature, i.e. positive or negative

One has to be smart enough to decode the news and take the position quickly in the stock. People who are adroit in this do make good short term gains even if we leave the insiders or fund houses that generally have good information much before the release of news (I presume so).

I was reading an article from some research paper that did a study on relationship of fund house investment and their holding in a particular stock. What they found out was most of the fund houses exit the stock much early than the release of numbers by the company.

Considering above I think there is little opportunity but then chances are that news is there in market and fund houses are smart enough to read the signs. What individual investors look for is immediate gains but if they play right on news than chances are sooner of later one might see the results.

As I write, I don’t see many clues about anything except that at times it does work. So if it does than why not try it through paper trade to start with.
