Qatari stocks, on the verge of a bull market, suffered a blow as concern grew that a feud with its Gulf neighbors is escalating. The benchmark QE Index on Monday was fewer than 5 points away from completing a 20 percent gain since a November low, before slumping as the U.A.E. said the country’s fighter jets intercepted one of its commercial planes. Qatar denied the claim.
A rotation out of defensive shares and into those seen as benefiting in times of economic expansion took hold in the second half of 2016, strengthening in the aftermath of the U.S. election on reflation bets before wobbling later in 2017. For this year, Citi favors European equities over bonds, supporting exposure to stocks excluding the U.K., and expects earnings growth of 10 percent to 15 percent, despite “mild headwinds” from a stronger euro.
European stocks have spent this week mirroring sector moves that prevailed at the start of 2017, as rising bond yields spur a win for cyclical shares over their defensive counterparts. Supported by global growth, the rotation will continue, Citigroup Inc. predicts. Bond-proxy sectors such as utilities and real estate have slumped the most in the Stoxx Europe 600 Index in recent sessions, while banks, miners and carmakers have rallied.
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".
