A long-awaited reminder of the appeal of active management. Over recent months, we have noted how the economic and investing environment has regressed to the “Goldilocks” mix of slow-but-steady growth, low inflation, low rates and low market volatility that characterized the pre-Trump era. Small caps are underperforming large caps, value stocks are underperforming growth stocks, and the 10-year Treasury yield has edged closer and closer to the 2% threshold.
Take care not to mistake calm markets for fair weather. By the time you read this note, we will know whether or not Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida. The state declared an emergency almost a week ago. Since then, the storm has crashed through the Caribbean, leaving devastation in its wake. The U.S., for its part, has been bracing for impact even as it deals with the flood damage of Hurricane Harvey.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), and other listed real-estate securities, are equities. They are listed on stock exchanges and included in equity indices such as the S&P500, the Russell 1000 and the FTSE 250. Some investors are put off by this. They prefer to try to build their real estate portfolios by investing privately and directly in bricks and mortar. In this paper, we want to challenge and alleviate those concerns.
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".
