The fund that maintains the Hong Kong dollar's peg to the U.S. dollar registered an investment income of 126.5 billion Hong Kong dollars (US$16.2 billion) in the first half, up from HK$44.3 billion a year ago, as equity markets performed well, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority said Thursday. The HKMA's Exchange Fund gained HK$27.8 billion on Hong Kong equities and HK$40.1 billion on global equities during the six months ended June 30.
Hang Lung Group Ltd. (0101.HK) posted a 34% rise in first-half net profit partly buoyed by higher profit from property sales. The Hong Kong-based real-estate developer said Thursday it recorded a net profit of 2.40 billion Hong Kong dollars (US$307 million) in the first half, compared with HK$1.79 billion a year earlier. Underlying net profit fell 3% at HK$1.81 billion. Its first-half revenue rose slightly to HK$6.64 billion from HK$6.61 billion the previous year.
Chinese oil-and-gas major PetroChina Co. (0857.HK) said late Wednesday it expects first-half net profit of between nine billion and 11 billion yuan ($1.33 billion-$1.63 billion), up from CNY528 million a year earlier. The company said the expected significant increase was because of higher oil prices. For the second half of 2017, the company said it expects global oil prices to fluctuate at a "mid-low" level, though "still with uncertainty."
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".
