Investing in sewage-treatment plants and highway overpasses hasn’t always been this consistently lucrative. Municipal bonds have posted gains for 10 consecutive months, the longest rally in state and local government debt since 1992, according to Barclays. Munis, which have a reputation for stability and safety, have returned 8.1% this year, through Thursday, including both price gains and interest payments. That tops the 4.1%...
Investors have been finding rich returns this year in the municipal debt sold by U.S. cities and states, but that doesn’t meant they should go chasing yield in the asset class, analysts and investors say. Tax-exempt municipal bonds have returned more than U.S. blue-chip stocks and corporate debt in 2014. They have posted their longest string of monthly gains in more than two decades, spurred by a broad bond-market rally, low supply and high demand.
BERMUDA—Emirates Team New Zealand won the America’s Cup on Monday, wresting control of the nearly 166-year-old sailing trophy from Larry Ellison’s Oracle Team USA. The Kiwis took the trophy by winning Monday’s first race in moderate breezes off Bermuda, capturing the Cup with a final score of 7-1. The victory eases the sting of Oracle’s...
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".
