Wall Street was sailing into the end of 2017 with markets calm, deal making on a tear and high confidence that one of the biggest media deals in history would be approved by a business-friendly administration. Two out of three isn’t bad, but the Justice Department’s legal challenge to the $85 billion AT&T-Time Warner agreement is a tough blow for the deal makers, analysts and investors who were highly confident that the merger would go through.
A da Vinci sells for $450 million, one bitcoin is worth $7,700 and 99-year-old Austria issues a 100-year bond at an interest rate of 2.1%. Clearly there is too much money in the world. That isn’t new, but how long can it last? With central banks scaling back stimulus, investments that appear attractive when interest rates are near, or below, zero suddenly look silly. And silly investments usually lose money, often bringing down less silly assets along with them.
The end of the third quarter is often a nervous time in the market with September being the weakest month of the year and October the month of epic crashes. Now, as Merrill Lynch analysts say, the “best reason to be bearish in the fourth quarter is there is no reason to be bearish.” Well, […]
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".
