Track the propagation and reliability of M&A rumors on the web.
Get Started

Rumor Hound autonomously monitors a continually increasing universe of news and social chatter for M&A rumors. Rumor Hound rewards low popularity sources that publish rumors that are cited by higher reliability sources at a later date and penalizes higher popularity sources that are late to report. Over time, Rumor Hound surfaces superstar sources with low reach and influence that for one reason or another are highly accurate in publishing market moving M&A rumors.
