The U.S. economy is not expected to go into a recession in 2018, nor are stocks predicted to plummet. But risks still abound – from rising interest rates to inflation. In its market outlook for 2018, Charles Schwab's Schwab Center for Financial Research said that global economic growth will likely continue into 2018, lifting corporate earnings. Still, it warned that the New Year could be the start of the late stages of the cycle, prompting the need for caution on the part of investors.
With about four in 10 marriages ending in divorce and close to one-quarter of Americans aged 65 and older widowed, a large swath of the U.S. population does not feel financially secure or prepared for retirement. What's more, according to a new TD Ameritrade survey of 2,000 adults aged 37 and older, a big number of married Americans don't consider the chance of a divorce or the death of a spouse when financial planning, which can create hardships when they do reach their golden years.
Vanguard and BlackRock, Inc. (BLK) may own the market for index investing and money management, but despite their size and reach, they are not likely to draw the attention of anti-competitive regulators any time soon. However, that doesn't mean they won't face lawsuits.
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".
