America, your world is about to get much more Wall Street. With the selection of Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director, President Trump is bringing Wall Street to Main Street through the door of the White House. Scaramucci — known on Wall Street as "The Mooch" (affectionately that is) — is charming, loquacious, effusive, combative, single minded, transactional, over the top, and loyal to a fault. He will bring a storm with him — it's likely the storm Trump wants.
NY Magazine's Kevin Roose has an informative piece out this morning on Anthony Scaramucci's tips for shmoozing. The hedge fund manager is legendary on The Street for making friends and keeping them. That is what has made his SALT conference, now taking place in Las Vegas, so popular with world leaders, Hollywood types ("The Mooch" will be seated next to Oliver Stone at dinner), and money managers of all stripes.
If you are a China watcher, you know who Autonomous Research's star analyst Charlene Chu is. She requires no introduction. In her latest note to clients, she warns that the "Chinese medicine" that seems to be stabilizing the country's financial sector for now — a "prescription of less excessive behaviour and a rebalancing of energy" — isn't going to work foreverIn fact she sees its usefulness fading fast.
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".
