Snap Inc. fell below its initial public offering price for the first time and was downgraded by Morgan Stanley amid concerns over competition from Instagram and the ability of Snapchat’s parent to grow as fast as initially expected. The stock closed down 1.1 percent at $16.99 in New York on Monday, below the $17 IPO price set on March 1. It was down 4.2 percent to $16.27 in premarket trading Tuesday.
Rite Aid Corp.’s merger with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. has gone up in flames, burning some hedge funds in the process. Walgreens announced Thursday it would scrap the takeover of the drugstore rival after a host of antitrust problems dogged the year and a half-long saga. Two of the biggest casualties: Rite Aid and Fred’s Inc., a smaller chain that stood to gain 1,200 divested stores as part of the deal.
Those with the most to lose include New York-based Alden Global Capital LLC, which held 9.3 million shares of Fred’s -- a 24 percent stake -- as of April 24. Its biggest stakeholder, Alden purchased the bulk of those shares in December, when Fred’s was trading around $20 a share. Since then, that position would have lost about half its market value.
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".
