Full disclosure: I had to look up "dotard" in my digital dictionary Thursday night. That was but one word within yet another new, well-crafted message from North Korea to U.S. President Donald Trump. The stock market is barely reacting to the latest war of words between the two countries. Interestingly, that seems to be how the market is taking this increasingly disturbing situation -- it just doesn't give a damn.
Not a day seems to go by now without Procter & Gamble (PG) being in the news. But Twitter feeds aren't necessarily lighting up with a discussion on an innovative new P&G product, it's people commenting on storied P&G's increasingly ugly battle with activist investor Nelson Peltz of Trian Partners. Peltz has pushed for a seat on the P&G board and proposed broad changes including a company restructuring into three global business units in a months-long proxy battle.
Investors better start being more afraid of the aftershocks from an interest rate hiking Federal Reserve. That's one takeaway from a new note out of Goldman Sachs Friday that predicted nine interest rate hikes by the end of 2019. The investment bank's economists Han Hatzius and David Mericle are quick to note the market only expects about two rate increases over that span.
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".
