The WallStreetBets dataset by Quiver Quantitative tracks daily mentions of different equities on Reddit’s popular WallStreetBets forum. The data covers 6,000 Equities, starts in August 2018, and is delivered on a daily frequency. The dataset is created by scraping the daily discussion threads on r/WallStreetBets and parsing the comments for ticker mentions.
This dataset depends on the US Equity Security Master dataset because the US Equity Security Master dataset contains information on splits, dividends, and symbol changes.

Quiver allows retail investors to tap into the power of big data and have access to actionable, easy to interpret data that hasn’t already been dissected by Wall Street.
