This year has been yet another positive one for Boohoo (LSE: BOO). The online fashion retailer’s share price has risen 38% since the start of the year. This follows a rise of 57% in 2015 and a gain of 288% in 2016. Clearly, there will be concerns among some investors that the company now may be overvalued. Profit-taking is a potential risk facing the company, since no share price ever rises in perpetuity.
While the FTSE 100 may be trading close to a record high after its gains in recent months, some stocks continue to offer wide margins of safety. Certainly, they may have relatively uncertain outlooks. But with profit growth being robust in many cases, they could outperform the wider index over the medium term. Here are two prime examples of such companies. They appear to offer strong growth potential within an industry that could benefit from a tailwind in future years.
Stating that Barclays (LSE: BARC) is a stock which may be worth buying and holding for 25 years may sound overly optimistic at the present time. The company has experienced a massively disappointing 2017 thus far, with its share price declining by over 15% since the start of the year. However, the company now appears to offer a potent mix of a low valuation as well as high earnings growth potential. As such, it could be a surprisingly strong growth stock for the long term.
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".
