What $1,000 Invested in 15 Stocks Pre-2008 Looks Like Now In the spirit of twisting the FOMO knife, HowMuch.net put together this visual of what $1,000 invested in some of America's favorite companies a decade ago — right before the Great Recession — would be worth today:Read Full Article »
There’s no denying Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and the rest of the FAANG gang are clearly the belles of the 2017 stock-market ball, but if it’s true momentum you seek during the holidays, you might want to look beyond the popular picks. Specifically, China’s where it’s at, according to the Daily Reckoning’s Greg Guenthner, who’s feeling bullish about the last few weeks of the year. “There’s one group of stocks flying under the radar as melt-up season accelerates,” he wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.
It’s been a rough pre-holiday stretch for this bull market ... relatively speaking, anyway. The S&P 500 SPX, -0.26% and the Dow DJIA, -0.43% just logged rare back-to-back weekly losses as the U.S. tax plan continues to keep everybody guessing. When the red ink flows, even if it’s just a trickle like this, the smart money gets busy sniffing out ways to profit from the potential turn — although, to be clear, smart money isn’t as smart as it used to be (see the chart of the day below).
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".
