Social sentiment is becoming an increasingly important part of the puzzle when it comes to stock market analytics. According to Market Prophit, which tracks both crowd sentiment and experts' views on Twitter, a handful of stocks are buzzing this Friday afternoon:

  • Sears Holdings Corp (NASDAQ: SHLD)
  • Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA)
  • Intercept Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: ICPT)
  • Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO)

Market Prophit's Igor Gonta said Sears, in particular, is "up big on [the company] trying to convert to a REIT." Sentiment among both the crowd and Twitter's most skilled traders is bullish.

Alibaba, meanwhile, also holds a bullish outlook from both segments of users according to Market Prophit.

Intercept Pharmaceuticals, which Gonta explained is "down huge on bad earnings," is experiencing bearish crowd sentiment, but Twitter's most experienced traders remain bullish.

Yahoo, lastly, is supported by bullish crowd sentiment and bearish experts, Market Prophit reported.
