Welcome to the first trading day of 2018. Shares of McDonald’s (MCD) are popping after Nomura named the fast-food chain its top 2018 U.S. restaurant stock pick. Analysts also raised their price target on the stock by $10 to to $190. Weight Watchers (WTW) shares are surging over 5% today after the diet program appointed DJ Khaled as a social media ambassador. He joins the ranks of Oprah Winfrey, who is a board member and part-owner of the company.
Shares of Amazon (AMZN) are getting a boost on reports that the e-commerce giant is in licensing talks with Saudi Arabia to invest in the country. Apple is also in separate talks, according to Reuters, as part of a push to give the kingdom a high-tech look. Gold and copper are on a tear, so it’s no surprise that Freeport-McMoran (FCX) is marching higher. With copper on a 15-day winning streak, the metal mining company is up 35% in December alone.
High-flying Micron (MU) shares got another boost after it beat on earnings and lifted forward guidance. The chipmaker cited strong demand for DRAM components, which are critical to “the cloud” and the smartphone in your pocket. Stitch Fix (SFIX) might have skipped a stitch. Shares of the newly public startup tumbled over 9%. The personal styling firm posted strong customer gains, but earnings were squeezed by spending on the company’s entry into new apparel categories.
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".
