Shares of Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) closed down 7% on Wednesday, after the company announced preliminary 2017 earnings that fell short of Wall Street's expectations and gave pessimistic guidance for 2018. Ford executives told analysts at an investor conference in Detroit on Tuesday evening that the company's adjusted 2017 earnings will come in at $1.78 per share. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had expected earnings of $1.83 per share, on average.
Ford's (NYSE:F) recent investments in self-driving-car company Autonomic to develop the "Transportation Mobility Cloud" is the start of a project that could have huge potential for the car company. The future focus on driverless-vehicle technology relies on the connection of cars, cities and people. The Transportation Mobility Cloud could be the platform that can make the concept a reality.
Ford's (NYSE:F) stock trailed General Motors (NYSE:GM) last year despite an extremely successful 2016 sales year. Former CEO Mark Fields was unable to sell the vision of Ford as a forward-thinking mobility company, and the board ousted him. Incoming CEO Jim Hackett is seen as a visionary who can drag Ford from its traditional auto-manufacturing roots toward an electric-focused, connected future.
@ajtonge40 No, she’ll just walk on by.
There may be something here I’m not getting. I will keep asking. But I’ve been waiting for a strategy to emerge that made sense to me, and we’re almost a year into this and it hasn’t.
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".
