Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on Friday he expects a Republican tax reform bill to be sent to President Donald Trump to sign by Christmas. "We're very excited about the timeline," Mnuchin said on "Squawk Box." "We're going to have the Senate, as soon as they get back from Thanksgiving, vote on the bill." "We have every reason it will get to the president's desk before Christmas for him to sign," he predicted.
Retail stocks are trading higher because investors have realized the "death star" known as Amazon "can't destroy everybody," CNBC's Jim Cramer said. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT), an exchange-traded fund that tracks the performance of retail stocks in the S&P 500, was more than 2 percent higher Friday. The ETF is on pace for its best day since July 25 and is up 3.58 percent this week. Retailers, including Foot Locker and Gap, rose on better-than-expected quarterly earnings.
Gary Mendell was running a successful hotel investment firm when he lost his son to addiction about six years ago. After that, the direction of his life changed. In the late 1980s, Mendell started HEI Hotels & Resorts which owns and operates properties under some of the biggest brands, including Starwood, Marriott, and Hilton. "I was a CEO running businesses, and my older son, Brian, struggled with addiction for eight years," Mendell told CNBC's "Squawk Box" in an interview this week.
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".
