Big data has become a rapidly growing field amongst firms in the financial sector and thus many companies and researchers have begun implementing machine learning methods to sift through large portions of data. From this data, investment management firms have attempted to automate investment strategies, some successful and some unsuccessful. This paper will investigate an investment strategy by using a deep neural network to see whether the stocks picked from the network will out or underperform the Russell 2000.
