XAutoplay: On | Off SAN DIEGO — Amazon (AMZN) Studios was back at Comic-Con this year, this time going up against new attendee Netflix (NFLX) outside of the convention center. Both streaming platforms had major booths set up in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, with Amazon showing off new TV series "The Tick," its first toe in the superhero waters, and Netflix offering detail set pieces from hit show "Stranger Things," as well as upcoming titles "Bright" and Marvel's "The Defenders."
XAutoplay: On | Off The fans may have loved Hasbro (HAS) at Comic-Con, but shares are sliding Monday after second-quarter revenue narrowly missed estimates as sales at the unit selling Walt Disney (DIS) "Star Wars" and Marvel toys barely edged up. Profit grew 29% to 53 cents a share, exceeding expectations for 46 cents, but 11% sales growth to $972.5 million fell just shy of forecasts for $973 million.
Shares of Hibbett Sports (HIBB) are plunging early Monday after the athletic specialty chain, which has over 1,000 stores, said that "very challenging sales trends" are weighing on same-store sales to the tune of a 10% decline in the second quarter. Comps have only crumbled by 10% or more on only one other occasion, said Quo Vadis Capital's John Zolidis — the July quarter of the financial crisis, when same-store sales sank 10.5%. Hibbett said it now expects a per-share loss of 19-22 cents in Q2.
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".
