Snyder's-Lance Inc. invited bids from four other potential buyers after Campbell Soup Co. first expressed an interest in purchasing the Charlotte-based snack maker. One of the four said it was willing to bid as much as $52 a share and remained in negotiations until the very end. But the rival bidder, in the end, could not resolve a potential antitrust issue in time to meet a bid deadline set by the Snyder's-Lance (NYSE: LNCE) board.
Duke Energy Corp. will publish by March 30 its climate-risk assessment that analyzes the impact the carbon-reduction goals in the Paris Accords will have on its business. That bows to a shareholder proposal that narrowly missed winning approval at Duke's 2017 shareholder meeting. Thomas DiNapoli, New York State Comptroller whose retirement funds hold 1.76 million shares of Duke stock, filed the shareholder proposal last year.
Getting Raleigh on Amazon's HQ2 20 top cities list is an "exciting development, but there's a lot more work ahead" to land the project, says David Fountain, N.C. president for Duke Energy Corp."We will certainly work with the many partners supporting this effort," says Fountain, Duke's front man in the push to get North Carolina considered as the home for a project that could bring 50,000 jobs to the state.
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".
