“Why is it Moving?” (WIIM) is the one sentence reason a stock is trading higher or lower on any given day. Benzinga adheres to strict SLAs around stock price percent change, where thresholds are determined based on market cap tiers, and guarantees coverage of any US listed company that hits a given threshold (including OTC).

Our team of analysts uncover the catalyst for change by digging through press releases, news items, and SEC filings, and often reaching out to the company itself. We post these catalysts in headline form, so we are able to deliver news to our audience quickly and concisely.
