As the Federal Reserve has been steadily hiking interest rates since 2015 and is predicted to boost rates further this year, savers can take advantage of this environment: Online savings accounts and CDs are generating higher yields. Individuals who are saving money for an emergency car or home repair should consider online savings accounts as a temporary parking place, said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst for Bankrate, a New York-based financial data and content company.
Millennial women are still saving less than their counterparts in their 401(k)s and remain less confident about that they will have enough funds once they retire. The average 401(k) balance for women is $38,000, compared with men who have an average balance of $74,000, according to data from T. Rowe Price.
Shares of beleaguered General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) dipped by nearly 1 percent on Monday following a downgrade from J.P. Morgan, reversing a gain in early morning trading. The price target of GE, which has been beset by problems for several years, was slashed from $16 to $14 by JP Morgan analyst Stephen Tusa. He reiterates the underweight rating he has placed since May 2016 and says General Electric failed to "snap back" and has not been able to meet its challenges of beating fundamentals.
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".
