Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said he sold 30 percent of his share in technology company IBM because of strong competition, but Kim Forrest, portfolio manager and vice president at Fort Pitt Capital Group, said on she does not think it is time to move away from the stock. "Warren and I are on the opposite sides of that trade," Forrest said during CNBC's "Closing Bell" on Friday. "I came from the world of software and I think I know what IBM is about."
The "Fast Money" traders discussed retail stocks on Friday, as investors prepare for the sector's wave of earnings next week. Trader Steve Grasso said he likes Macy's and Kohl's because the stocks are oversold and he expects for them to move higher. Trader Guy Adami said he likes Nordstrom as a stock to short after they report. He said the company's improving margins and report of less inventory in their last quarter will help it rally into earnings.
Investors have a second chance to get into stocks that are expected to benefit the most from President Donald Trump's policies, said Stephanie Link, managing director and equity portfolio manager at Nuveen-affiliate TIAA Investments, on CNBC's Closing Bell Thursday. "You can make a case to get back into that reflation trade," Link said as stock in the industrial materials and financial sectors fall to lower levels. "We are back to where we were back in November…before the election."
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".
