It is always reassuring to see a restaurant owner dining in his or her own establishment, and investors can take similar comfort from finding fund managers who “eat their own cooking”. Win or lose, stockpickers with substantial stakes in the trusts they run will share our profits or our pain. By contrast, most fund managers and directors of investment trusts get paid handsomely, whether or not investors in their underlying funds actually make any money.
Will Brexit mean the busting of the bond bubble and the end of a multi-decade bull run in gilt-edged stock? Will fixed interest securities be among the first casualties of Britain’s freedom from the European Union? Next week will mark the first anniversary of the Brexit referendum and the beginning of talks about what this momentous decision will mean in practice. But investors interested in its financial consequences need not wait.
Widespread dissatisfaction with an ineffectual ruling elite led to a left-wing government that caused the abolition, albeit temporarily, of the capitalist system before beginning several decades of poverty, including mass starvation. Tomorrow’s news today? No, silly, I am merely recalling that this year marks the centenary of the Mensheviks gaining control of the Duma, or Russian parliament, for a few months before they were kicked out by the Bolsheviks. The rest, as they say, is hysteria.
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".
