Here are the stocks we’re watching today:Tesla (TSLA) shares are rising after Elon Musk revealed the company’s first all-electric semi-truck and a $200,000 supercar. Both J.B. Hunt (JBHT) and Walmart (WMT) placed reservations for multiple trucks. The list of potential suitors for Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX) is growing. The Wall Street Journal reported that Comcast (CMCSA) and Verizon (VZ), our parent company, have expressed interest in buying a piece of the media company.
It’s Fed decision day. And if investors and analysts are judging correctly, the Federal Reserve will announce it is standing pat on interest rates and monetary policy at the conclusion of this week’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting. Even though the Fed isn’t expected to increase its benchmark interest rate — and won’t hold a press conference or release updated dot plots with predictions about the economy — investors will be honing in on a few key things in the policy statement.
If you thought last week was big for the Federal Reserve, this one might be even bigger. With more than 11 scheduled speeches from Fed officials, including Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s address on Tuesday, investors will have many moving pieces to watch. Meanwhile, Republicans are still pushing ahead for a Senate vote on the Graham-Cassidy health care bill this week, despite a rushed timetable and the increasingly unlikely task of amassing enough votes.
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".
