Perhaps I lack imagination, or perhaps it's Warren Buffett brainwashing me. But, I find it pretty hard to think of a better business than the Coca-Cola Company (KO). What makes Coca-Cola such a great business? The key to the business is a great product. Coca-Cola is such a great product that it is recognized and loved the world over. Moreover, Coke is a dividend king, having increased dividends for the past 55 years (as of year-end 2016).
When I previously wrote an article about Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB), suggesting that it might deserve a look as an anchor stock for your portfolio, some (in the comments) suggested that KMB's debt-to-equity ratio was too high and that they would stay away. That particular article partly was motivated by the price of the stock, which then was trading near its 52-week low in the $110-range per share.
For dividend investors, the question of whether a company's dividend payments are sustainable is paramount. Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (MMP) is a company engaged in the "transportation, storage and distribution of refined petroleum products and crude oil (2016 annual report, Item 1)." MMP currently has a current dividend yield (as of mid-November 2017) of ~5.5%. It also has a track record of growing its dividends annually, attracting dividend growth investors (DGIs).
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".
