It Is Universal Pessimism, Not Reality, That Is Pummeling Oil StocksIn my early days of trading, I listened carefully to the old guys on the floor. They had lots of sayings that just turned out to be true. "Don't fight the tape," and "The trend is your friend," were two you probably know yourself. One of the ones I heard from my mentor was on the psychology of the market. It went something like this:"In a bullish market, all news is bullish.
Paris Is Burning: Trump Tampers With Natural Progress of CivilizationReal Money asked me to outline the winners and losers of President Trump's decision to abandon the Paris climate accords. The answer here is pretty easy and obvious: The winners will be a few coal companies, most likely Arch Coal (ARCH) , Peabody Energy (BTU) and Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) , all three of whom advised against leaving -- and their gains will more than likely only be short and temporary.
OPEC is getting no respect for the commitment it's making to oil production cuts in its upcoming Vienna meeting on Thursday, and that presents us with a really fine opportunity. The oil markets have really been turned on their head: There was a time in the not-too-distant past when we would all scoff at quotas from the OPEC cartel, a bunch of self-interested, undisciplined producers who raced each other to be the first to cheat on production quotas.
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".
