FinancES: Financial Targeted Sentiment Analysis in Spanish

The aim of this task is to extend the challenge of sentiment analysis in Spanish to the financial domain, in order to extract the sentiment that a piece of financial information can have for several actors, including the main economic target (i.e., the specific company or asset where the economic fact applies), other companies (i.e., the entities producing the goods and services that others consume) and consumers (i.e., households/individuals). Specifically, two tasks are proposed and evaluated separately. One to identify the main target and to determine the sentiment polarity towards such target, and a second task to assess the sentiment towards both other companies and consumers.
