People often want to know expected future events related to given real world entities. For supporting users in the process of future scenario analysis, we propose several methods that enable to retrieve and analyze future-related opinions from large text collections. In particular, we focus on time-unreferenced predictions, which do not contain any explicit future time reference and hence are more difficult to be retrieved. As a second contribution, we propose estimating validity of predictions by automatically searching for real world events corresponding to the predictions. This kind of analysis aims to help detect predictions that are no longer valid as well as help estimating prediction accuracy of information sources.
