Thomson Reuters StarMine Model Predicts US Stock Performance Based on Company
Insider Filings

Stock-ranking system with outperformance, extensive coverage, low correlations
and well-suited to post Sarbanes-Oxley era

NEW YORK,
April 7, 2014
-
Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for
businesses and professionals, today announced the launch of the StarMine
Insider Filings Model US, based on the trades and holdings of company
insiders to rank US stocks by under/out performance. It uses the sentiment of
company insiders on the future prospects of their company, as reflected by
their stock transactions and ownership, to indicate likely performance across
the coming months.

The StarMine Insider Filings Model US uses publically-available insider
filings to assess two dimensions of insider sentiment: how many insiders are
buying or selling company securities, and how much they are buying and
selling. The launch of the model reflects Thomson Reuters role to connect
and enable the global financial community by helping professional investment
managers generate more useful investment ideas and mitigate risks, giving
them an edge over their peers.

"As financial institutions face increased regulatory pressures and demands, we
strive to offer the most intuitive and efficient products to help streamline
workflow", says Hugh Genin, Quantitative Research manager at Thomson Reuters.
"The StarMine Insider Filings Model leverages StarMine's expertise along with
the vast information resources of Thomson Reuters to build a successful
product that has excellent performance and is well-suited to the post-
Sarbanes-Oxley era."

Specifically formulated to address the challenges of building effective
insider filing trading models in the post-Sarbanes-Oxley regime, the StarMine
Insider Filings Model US has outperformed a basic insider trading benchmark
by 2.1% annually. It benefits from Thomson Reuters database of insider
filings that extend back to before electronic trading, as well as StarMine's
rigorous back-testing methodology. Furthermore, its low correlation to other
indicators means that it can be successfully combined with other models for
more powerful analysis.

The US Insider model is one component of the StarMine Smart Money suite of
models available in Thomson Reuters Eikon, which leverage information about
the actions of various groups of informed investors, including short sellers,
institutions, and corporate insiders. Other models in the Smart Money suite
include the StarMine Short Interest model, which ranks stocks most/least
likely to outperform based on number of shares shorted, and the StarMine
Smart Holdings model, which ranks stocks based on the predicted future
increase, or decrease, in institutional ownership.

methodology behind StarMine's Insider Filings Model US.
