Here’s an interesting statistic: Of the highly followed and much loved FAANNG group, only Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: ), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ), and Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ: ) are at all-time highs. That is pretty impressive for those three stocks, considering the S&P 500 is 5% off its all-time high and the NASDAQ 100 is 3% off its all-time high. What does that mean? Investors really believe in the growth narratives at AMZN, NFLX, and NVDA.
Change is in the air and on multiple fronts. And none of it looks good for Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: ). That is why Facebook stock has struggled for the past three months, bouncing between $170 and $190 with no real constructive and sustainable move to the upside. Social media hasn’t exactly been painted in the best light recently. These mega internet platforms were supposed to connect all of us and bring us closer together, regardless of distance. For a while, they did just that.
I’m all for rebound stories and I love rooting for the underdog. But I also know that the underdog is the underdog for a reason. Most of the time, Goliath tops David without getting scratched. When I hear investors chattering about a potential rebound in beaten-up streaming music platform Pandora Media Inc (NYSE: ), I get excited — at first. Could the leader-turned-underdog actually make a comeback? If so, P stock could fly!
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".
