With a banking purge grinding on and a government-backed ratings company proving unexpectedly harsh, bond investors are growing increasingly wary of Russia’s non-state lenders. Eurobonds issued by Bank Otkritie FC, Promsvyazbank and Credit Bank of Moscow are the worst performers among their emerging-market peers this quarter, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
Once the darling of emerging debt markets, Russia’s local bonds are getting the cold-shoulder treatment from foreign investors. Carry returns are dwindling, oil rarely ventures above $50 per barrel and U.S. sanctions are a signature away from being enshrined in law. After hitting a record 31 percent of the local debt market in May, foreigners’ holdings started to drop in June. That share will continue to shrink over the next 12 months, according to almost half the respondents in a Bloomberg survey.
Russia-U.S. spat may be chance to buy: Ashmore’s DehnRussian stocks sank the most in six weeks and the ruble erased gains after Moscow said it was sending U.S. diplomats home in response to tougher sanctions passed Thursday by the Senate. While some investors said the move underscores Russia’s pariah-state status, with the penalties now potentially in place for decades, others, including Ashmore Group Plc’s Jan Dehn, pointed to the latest downturn in relations as a buying opportunity.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
