U.S. banks issued the most debt in at least three years this earnings go-round with $31 billion of investment-grade supply hitting the market, according to data compiled by Bloomberg going back to 2014. JPMorgan Chase & Co. led the surge on July 17, along with Wells Fargo & Co. and Citigroup Inc. The other big U.S. banks -- Bank of America Corp., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley -- followed up their earnings releases with billion-dollar debt sales.
Steve Feinberg’s investment in Remington Outdoor Co. is misfiring again. The billionaire’s buyout fund, Cerberus Capital Management, controls gunmaker Remington, which ironically has struggled ever since Donald Trump, the gun industry’s self-proclaimed “true friend,” was elected president. That wiped out fears of a Hillary Clinton crackdown on firearms, tempered gun sales and drained as much as 33 percent from the value of Remington’s bonds.
High-yield bond investors are accustomed to watching out for weakness in oil after the selloff that started in 2014 rattled global markets. When crude drops below $35 a barrel, the debt-to-enterprise value ratios of junk-rated energy companies typically climb above 55 percent, according to Deutsche Bank AG strategists. That would increase the premium debt buyers demand to take on the added risk with ripple effects to the wider high-yield market, they said.
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".
