Stock analyst Ralph Acampora’s dream of painting a massive chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average on the side of his Minnesota barn didn’t come together overnight. As we detailed in a story Wednesday, Mr. Acampora spent more than a year prepping the project, sketching out his plans, researching the Dow’s history, and commissioning panels to […]
With 51 record highs this year, it sometimes feels like the Dow Jones Industrial Average is going through the roof. On the side of Ralph Acampora’s barn, it actually is. Mr. Acampora, a market strategist for more than four decades on Wall Street before he moved to a Minnesota farm seven years ago, started this past spring on a 70-foot-long, 16-foot-high painting showing a chart of the Dow on the side of the corrugated structure. When...
Sure, 1,000 points on the Dow Jones Industrial Average ain’t what it used to be. But the most recent 1,000-point rally for the blue-chip index was still a notable run. The 30-member stock average closed above 23000 for the first time in its 120-year history Wednesday, taking just 54 trading sessions to climb from 22000. It was the […]
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".
