The third quarter was already looking pretty tepid for banks, and falling U.S. mortgage rates have made the outlook more glum for some. Long-term rates may have bottomed for now after falling following worries about North Korea, Hurricane Irma and weak inflation data. Even a slight rekindling of inflation, seen in Labor Department data Thursday, didn’t move rates very much. The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage...
Goldman Sachs has a plan to get its trading mojo back. The only thing standing in its way is literally every other bank on Wall Street. Goldman outlined in some detail on Tuesday how it plans to boost revenue by $5 billion across various segments over the next three years. The focus was on fixed income, currency and commodities trading, which posted disappointing performance over the last two quarters. Harvey Schwartz, the...
Hurricane Irma has left a trail of destruction across Florida, but it could have been much worse on the ground. For insurers, investors and consumers, the news is also good. The industry has avoided extreme losses and insurance rates are unlikely to rise significantly. Estimates of total potential losses from the storm are already coming down as Irma has lessened in strength and passed up the west coast, avoiding a direct hit on Miami.
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".
