LONDON -- The emissions-cheating scandal at Volkswagen has dealt serious damage to its shares, shaking Germany's stock market. The automaker shed 33 billion euros ($36.9 billion) from its market capitalization at one point -- down more than 40% from pre-scandal levels. Volkswagen's market cap stood at 55 billion euros Thursday, leaving rival Daimler in front and BMW breathing down its neck. While the selloff has eased, the stock's outlook is cloudy.
LONDON -- Norway's mammoth government pension fund will scale back its exposure to or stop investing altogether in low-liquidity bonds, including the government debt of Japan, under a proposed asset allocation plan. The sovereign wealth fund, the world's biggest, wants to reduce its bond investment from about a third of its portfolio at present and limit the target currencies to just the dollar, euro and pound, according to a proposal presented to the Ministry of Finance earlier this month.
LONDON -- With the London Interbank Offered Rate slated to be phased out in 2021, central banks around the world are making preparations to ensure a smooth switch from the scandal-ridden benchmark to new home-based indicators. Underpinning mortgages, floating-rate bonds and other derivatives, Libor is used as a reference for $350 trillion in financial products worldwide.
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".
