Bryan-Andrew Cross: quantamental investing trend is just getting started So-called quantamental investing, where discretionary managers use quantitative tools that were previously the domain of systematic hedge funds, is highly fashionable right now. UBS Asset Management’s Bryan-Andrew Cross thinks the trend is just getting started. “The quantamental approach so far has involved a lot of screening techniques,” says Cross.
John Riddle has been trying to predict the behaviour of Wall Street analysts for more than 30 years. The co-chief investment officer at Denver-based boutique asset manager 361 Capital runs a behavioural model that forecasts how an analyst’s expectations of stocks’ earnings will rise or fall in the future and invests accordingly. But every now and then, the model goes loopy. “There are periods of time where it just seems like investors almost prefer losers,” he says. Riddle quickly realised th
The US Securities and Exchange Commission is looking to formulate new rules to govern electronic trading in fixed income markets. “We are looking at the fixed income market with a bigger focus than you’ve seen in the past,” SEC chairman Jay Clayton said at a hedge fund conference in New York on November 28. The SEC has established a Fixed Income Market Structure Advisory Committee to identify areas for regulatory improvements in the corporate and municipal bond markets. The committee will prov
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".
