It’s extremely early in the spring selling season yet. But, by many accounts, buyers of newly built homes came out in force last month. One of the latest reports to indicate a strong start to the spring season is the monthly survey of home builders conducted by housing research firm Zelman Associates.
The door is closing on home builders seeking to go public. With new-home sales growing at a torrid rate, eight builders raised $1.77 billion issuing new shares in 2013 and the first half of 2014, the sector’s first initial public offerings since 2004. But the momentum has faded as higher mortgage rates last year weighed on a market already affected by tepid wage gains and tight mortgage-qualification standards.
Home builders have spent most of the past two years building houses for the affluent. Now D.R. Horton Inc., the largest U.S. builder by homes sold last year, is signaling that it may be shifting to favor production pace over price. The Fort Worth, Texas-based builder last week unveiled a new division, called Express Homes, to build...
#Kimco on Q4 call: Momentum building for #retailers embracing omnichannel. “You’ll see more retailers showcase sales as a combined number rather than an e-commerce & a physical number. It’s one big newtowrk & retailers are realizing how important the store is to that network."
#Kimco not worried about refilling Sears spaces should the #retailer vacate. Exec on Q4 call: “Tenant demand for these boxes have been extraordinarily
high. We’ve seen it from the offprice guys, the grocers.” Confidence in ability to re-lease isn't lacking.
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".
