In this special excerpt from Episode 33 of the Cocktail Investing Podcast, Lenore Hawkins discusses that while JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is likening Bitcoin to the Dutch tulip bulbs bubble in the 1600’s, the reality is we are just in the early innings of cryptocurrencies. The question is, can Bitcoin maintain its pole position, or is its fate similar to that of many of the early internet pioneers?
Following a somewhat tension-filled weekend given North Korea’s latest missile launch, Friday’s London terror attack and yet another hurricane set to travel up the Atlantic, we’re once again highlighting the items that investors should focus their attention on for the week ahead, and the fallout from Hurricane’s Harvey and Irma will start appearing in things like the Home Sales data, Fed Rate plans and corporate earnings.
Despite several reasons to be unnerved about the overall market, the week began with what we would call a “sigh of relief rally” as the weekend’s hurricane turned out to be not quite the Armageddon that was feared. Monday’s breakout to new all-time highs for the S&P 500, (for the first time in 23 trading days) makes this now the second longest and second strongest bull market on record, while the economy continues to muddle through.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
