The bear market in the oil patch is causing big pain for energy companies. Half of the stocks in the S&P Energy sector are down more than 20% or more this year and in personal bear markets of their own. In a sign of just how much pain the latest plunge in the price of crude oil is having on energy-related stocks, with only two of the 34 stocks in the sector are now sporting gains for the year, S&P Dow Jones Indices data show.
Shares of hospitals, health insurers and drug makers got the legislative version of a steroid injection Thursday after the Republican-controlled Senate unveiled its plan to revamp the U.S. health care system. Thursday's health care rally was broad-based, building on recent gains that have propelled the sector to a gain of 17% this year vs. a gain of nearly 9% for the broad U.S. stock market.
The once-closed door to China's stock market has been cracked opened a wee bit more. American investors will soon have a new way to gain exposure to a limited number of home-grown stocks in mainland China, and tap the potential growth of the world's second-biggest economy. MSCI, a leading global index provider, will now include 222 Chinese stocks, called "A shares," in its popular emerging-markets stock index, which financial companies have an estimated $1.6 trillion riding on.
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".
