Everyone prefers that their investments go up in price immediately after buying but the opposite happens frequently too. Dollar-cost averaging is often touted as a way to soften the blow of an immediate decline. Q.: I have cash I know should be invested but I am nervous about the markets. It has been suggested that I dollar cost average to protect against losses. How much loss protection should I get with that?
QUESTION: Dear Dan, when my mother passes away (my dad died years ago), will my brothers and sisters be able to get stretch IRAs? Moisand: Ray, Technically, a “stretch IRA” is a description of how an Inherited IRA is used rather than a special account type. Your mother’s IRA will pass to the beneficiaries she named.
When inheriting an IRA, Roth IRA or other retirement account, it can be tempting to cash out. In many cases, taking advantage of the provisions in current law to “stretch” the account would lower the tax bill and the usefulness of the funds. Q.: You stated in a prior question that if you inherited a Roth IRA, you would be subject to RMD. I’d like to know how that works. A.: Frank, yes inherited Roth IRAs are subject to Required Minimum Distributions (RMD).
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".
