Announcements about earnings, product launches, changes in management, all are events that can cause a company's stock price to move up or down.

Digital news sources

Today, news travels through digital means. It reaches social networks at breakneck speed. News can spread virally from the originator to millions of people in a matter of minutes. If the news has material value, it is re-tweeted immediately.
