In the ongoing commodity up-cycle, companies like Vedanta, which has a diversified business portfolio comprising of copper, aluminium, zinc, oil & gas, iron ore and power, are having a dream run. The company has smartly increased its production across the segments to capitalise on higher international commodity prices. During the recently concluded September quarter, the company reported strong 41% year on year growth in net profit on a sales turnover of Rs 21520 crore-which grew by 37%.
In a dull environment where investors worry about economic growth and industrial capex growth, JSW Steel reported its highest ever consolidated quarterly sales of 3.96 million tonnes, which is about 13 percent higher compared with June 2017 quarter. Companies like Tata Steel and JSW Steel are benefitting because of the consolidation in the sector as marginal players remain in stress.
Despite poor operating environment and pricing pressure in the September quarter, Tata Steel posted good set of numbers helped by strong volume growth in the domestic business. The company, on a consolidated basis, reported 33 percent year-on-year (YoY) growth in sales to Rs 32,464 crore and reported a profit of Rs 1,018 crore as against a loss of Rs 49 crore last year.
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".
