A return of VIP clients to Melbourne has helped boost operating profit for James Packer's Crown Resorts. Crown said on Thursday morning that normalised earnings before interest and tax for the group had risen 15.2 per cent in the December half, primarily due to a surging in VIP gamblers at the company's Melbourne venue and deep cost cutting. Crown's normalised EBIT reached $297.7 million, including $234.7 million EBIT from Crown Melbourne.
Billionaire investor Alex Waislitz says many investors in real estate marketing company Domain want Antony Catalano back as chief executive. The Financial Review Rich List member owns stock in both Domain Holdings Australia and Fairfax Media, and says he is disappointed Mr Catalano, who resigned unexpectedly last month, is not CEO, and that his confidence in the overall leadership of Fairfax and Domain has been "dented".
Pact Group chairman Raphael "Ruffy" Geminder believes his "big hairy aspirational goal" to keep growing his plastics and packaging company around the region is "alive and kicking" after the successful integration of several acquisitions.
Wondering what stunt I need to pull today to get yet another mention in the legendary Chris Lacy and sidekick @wmdglasgow's Margin Call column. Very flattering. Would still like a pic tho. (Also Will, stop obsessing over the Fin Review!)
@MickLynch_Age@mahonjt@micklynch57 Also a fair point. Also think there are several groups trying to control the game now. So whether replacing one group with another is the right thing, I guess we will see. And while they all fight the elite game dwindles. No coincidence surely
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".
