The outlook for much of the European real estate investment market looks brighter today than it did a year ago - buoyed by increasing economic confidence, easing political tensions and continued inflows of capital from investors around the world. While uncertainty hasn’t gone away, analysts say they feel more comfortable than 12 months ago. Back then, the United Kingdom’s (U.K.) Brexit vote to leave the European Union (EU) triggered fears of potential volatility and upheaval across the continent.
MFA Financial, Inc. (NYSE: MFA) announced on Aug. 11 that co-CEO William Gorin died at the age of 59. Gorin joined MFA in 1997 and was named CEO in January 2014. Gorin also served as chair of NAREIT’s Mortgage REIT Council. “Bill provided very effective and notably constructive leadership to the REIT industry as chair of NAREIT’s Mortgage REIT Council,” said NAREIT President and CEO Steve Wechsler.
What impact is the political uncertainty across Europe having on the listed real estate market? The political uncertainties in Europe have retreated substantially since the recent election of Emmanuel Macron as the new president of France, but a major question mark remains over the timing and outcome of the elections in Italy. The European listed real estate sector has not been affected by this environment any more than what we have seen with the traditional equities market.
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".
