Investing is a tough gig. Sometimes, a strong performance doesn’t keep investors happy. In fact, sometimes they head for the exits. We looked at all funds that had a 15% return or higher over the past 12 months and listed them by their cash outflows over that time, which averaged $4.7 billion. For comparison, the S&P 500 posted 12.5% over the same time. There are a number of reasons investors may leave a good game, says Tom Roseen, head of research services at Lipper.
We took a new look yet again at this year's top advisors and re-ranked them based solely on their annual production figures. For the original list, this was one of six metrics we used to determine the ranking. The other five were: assets under management; % change in AUM from previous year; % change in production; amount of fee-based business; and ratio of production-per-AUM.Since the initial list, we have broken out some of the individual stats for fresh looks of our top advisors.
A sometimes rocket-fueled star of the investment markets, the natural resources sector has stood out the past half-decade – for underperformance. Funds dominated by metals, minerals and oil companies didn’t just lag broad indexes, they turned in an average annual loss of 7.3% for the past five years. Ouch. To add insult to injury, the worst performers aren’t even cheap to buy.
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".
