Beijing may be getting tough on China’s overleveraged financial sector, but one corner seems unscathed: the country’s listed insurance companies. In the latest good news, China Life—the country’s biggest listed insurer and one of the world’s largest by premiums—said Wednesday its premium income for 2017 would top 500 billion yuan ($80 billion), up almost 20% on the year before.
The stars have aligned for Japan’s stock market. And things look set to stay that way. Japan’s stock market took in more money from global investors than any other in 2017, deservedly so: Japan’s economy has expanded for eight quarters, one of its longest stretches of growth in over two decades. There are even—amazingly—nascent signs that inflation expectations are on an upward trajectory, which could eventually portend higher prices....
NEW YORK: This week, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) bought a less-than-expected amount of long-dated Japanese government bonds (JGBs): It announced it would buy 190 billion yen (US$1.7bil) worth rather than an expected 200 billion yen at a scheduled auction. That was enough to rattle the market, as investors conjectured the BoJ had begun tapering its bond purchases by stealth, thereby effectively tightening monetary policy.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
