Announcement

A significant piece of news given to the public. For example, if a company hires a new CEO, the announcement occurs the day this news is given to the media to report to the public. As the announcement may affect the company's stock price, many analysts observe stock performance on the announcement date and consider it a gauge of how the market will treat the news.
