StressLens in Action

Unlike any other tool, StressLens uses unique stress markers to detect potential major financial changes well before the market knows of them and can react, providing an edge to investors looking to make moves ahead of announced information.

FedEx Margins and Earnings

For example, FedEx’s lockdown era success collapsed “suddenly” in September 2022. However, Fred Smith and other executives’ stress scores indicated that something was amiss three months in advance. Likewise, Smith’s stress scores modulated in January 2023, well before positive news was formally communicated in April 2023.

Fedspeak and Medium Latency

Jerome Powell’s highest stress marker on June 14, 2023 — dramatically above others — betrayed his concept of no rate action at the June meeting as a seemingly benign “skip.” In contrast, comments that sounded critical in fact corresponded to low stress markers. StressLens would have communicated these insights immediately, allowing traders to take rapid action if they so chose.
