So when shit happens, shit happens.I even scrapped wikipedia for all events from BC to Current Year. That was my attempt for Natural Language Processing or a sentiment analysis. You can search for an earthquake, and plot it with financial performance. Yup, it is a primitive method, but I made it work.
I also collected data from FINVIZ in which I was only able to get current financials, but finviz has info on headquarter and other fixed variables.
Basically, I wanted to merge all kinds of data that will help me explain "performances" - data revealing a story to me, that will help me make sense of what's going on in the financial market.
