(Reuters) - Folgers coffee maker J.M. Smucker Co’s (SJM.N) sales and profit topped analysts’ forecasts in the second quarter, as it reined in costs and benefited from higher prices for products such as Jif peanut butter. Smucker’s shares, which have declined 17 percent this year, rose 5 percent in premarket trading on Thursday. The price increases helped drive profit in Smucker’s consumer foods business about 10 percent higher in the quarter ended Oct. 31.
(Reuters) - Target Corp issued an underwhelming profit forecast for the key holiday quarter, as it continues to depend on price cuts to drive traffic to its stores and websites, sending its shares down 3 percent in premarket trade. The department store operator forecast adjusted earnings of $1.05 to $1.25 per share for the quarter ending January 2018, largely below the average analyst estimate of $1.24.
(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc-owned (AMZN.O) Whole Foods Market on Wednesday announced price cuts on its best-selling grocery items and holiday staples for all its customers ahead of the holiday season. The lower prices, which will also give Amazon Prime members deeper discounts on items such as organic and antibiotic-free turkeys, come on top of the price cuts announced by Whole Foods in August, when Amazon completed its acquisition of the upscale grocer.
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".
