The stock market is out of control: Maybe I am a bit too amped up ahead of my plans to stay awake more than 24 hours straight to cover Black Friday, but isn't the stock market just nuts right now? The S&P 500 briefly broke through the 2,600 level on Tuesday to hit an all-time intraday high. People, this is supposed to be a holiday-shortened week where the fat cats on Wall Street are on their yachts in Bermuda flying drones over the ocean.
Walmart (WMT) CEO Doug McMillon plays it cool when asked about the impact of tax reform. But, he does acknowledge tax cuts for people and corporations could be a big growth driver if passed sometime next year. "Oh, not that close -- we'll see how it turns out -- we have members of our team paying closer attention than I am," McMillon told TheStreet when asked how closely he is watching the tax debate going on in Congress right now.
It was almost a year ago that we reviewed the charts and indicators of Align Technology, Inc. (ALGN) , and we wrote then that "we can already justify a price target of $110 for ALGN, but this Point and Figure chart yields a longer-term price objective of $118. Longs could raise their sell stops to a close below $90." One year later, we can see that prices passed both our $110 price target and the $118 target and went on to more than double from there.
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".
