Few will be sorry to see the back of this week, which wound down with horrific terror attacks in Spain. While investors can move on after violent events, they may find it harder to shake the gloom that seems to be building over what POTUS can get done while in office. Some fear his economic adviser Gary Cohn may end up bailing, which could be bad news for stocks.
As the furor continues over President Donald Trump’s Charlottesville comments, his personal lawyer appears to have added fuel to the fire. John Dowd, who leads the president’s legal team, forwarded an email that among other things, argued there no difference between Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and George Washington, according to The New York Times, which published excerpts of that email.
As America soul-searches its way through a strange summer, the Dow managed to work its way back on top of a big level yesterday. But it’s not clear if the blue-chip gauge can hang above 22K, as Wal-Mart’s results arrive and doubts grow about another rate hike this year. And, of course, investors continue keep a wary eye on Washington and the Charlottesville fallout. What about the FAANG gang? Those market darlings have had a spotty August, though they’re still up big for the year.
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".
