It’s been three weeks since Amazon.com announced its stunning deal for Whole Foods Market, but investors and analysts are still trying to work through the deal’s long-term consequences. “This online/offline collision has been a long time in the making, but Amazon share gains are now becoming large enough to make an impact,” MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson wrote in a note to clients on Friday. Sanderson estimates that Amazon now has a 5% “market share” of all retail categories, excluding food.
On Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to celebrate the completion of the company’s first Model 3 production unit, which is expected to roll off the factory floor on Friday. By Wednesday, the mood was not as celebratory, at least not on Wall Street. Tesla shares were down 4.9% Wednesday morning, to $335, as investors returned from their one-day July 4th break to digest somewhat disappointing news about the company’s second-quarter production.
It’s been a busy year for the wireless companies. T-Mobile continues to think outside the box, breaking free from industry norms. Same for Sprint, whose latest offer is...a free year of service! Meanwhile, AT&T is responding to increasing competition by transforming itself into an entertainment giant, with the acquisition of Time Warner. As the industry worries about the future, though, Verizon has seemed fairly calm, willing to just go about day-to-day business. The nation’s No.
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".
