Kostin cited progress of tax legislation and the strengthening economy. He anticipates a reduction in the corporate tax rate to pass early next year. The equity advance that started in 2009 is likely to last three more years, driven by “rational exuberance” that hinges on profit growth, he said. If that happens, the bull market would exceed the 10-year run during the Internet frenzy as the longest in history.
While the same point distance means a smaller incremental change when prices start at a higher level, the ascent underscores the momentum in a market where nothing seems to have been able to stop, from North Korea to the drama in Washington. Up 16 percent, the S&P 500 is poised for the best year since 2013.
The S&P 500 Index sailed past 2,600 for the first time, hitting its fourth round-number milestone of the year as the bull market in U.S. stocks gathered steam. The benchmark gained 0.7 per cent to 2,600.03 as of 11:02 a.m. in New York, as stocks continued the recovery from a two-week decline. Technology and health-care shares led gains. Up 3 per cent since September, the S&P 500 is on course for its ninth straight quarterly advance, matching the longest winning streak in almost two decades.
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".
