International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), better known as IBM, is set to report fourth quarter fiscal 2017 earnings results after the closing bell Thursday. The Blue Chip tech giant, which has suffered 22 straight quarters of revenue declines, is expected to end that streak to start off the new year. And this explains why IBM stock, which has risen more than 9% year to date, has climbed some 10% over the past month, ranking as the third-best performer on the Dow.
Breaking up is often hard to do, but when survival depends on business agility, nimbleness and a long-term competitive strategy, there’s sometimes no alternative. And that’s where General Electric (GE) finds itself. While announcing on Tuesday that its insurance business, which is part of the slimmed-down GE Capital, would take a $6.2 billion charge for the fourth quarter, CEO John Flannery also shared his vision for a segmented vision.
The economic prospects for some of the nation's largest banks, particularly as it relates to stronger economic growth, pace of lending, less regulation and interest rates, are all finally moving in the right direction. And that hasn’t always been the case. But with better-than-expected earnings results released Friday from JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC), investors were justified in rushing to own their respective shares over the past three months.
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".
