JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon is among leading corporate chieftains gearing up for a steady year of economic growth in 2018 of around 2.5%. But that view is mainly contingent on U.S. policymakers getting “tax reform right,” Dimon said. Dimon’s remarks accompanied the Business Roundtable’s Q4 economic outlook, which hit the highest level in five years.
Even the world’s most cautious investors may have a hard time writing off the uptrend of U.S. stocks this year. The S&P 500 (SPY), the broadest barometer of America’s largest companies, hasn’t seen a weekly decline of 2% in 60 weeks. If the trend continues through Friday, it will mark the longest stretch of what traders consider a notable decline since 1965, as tracked by our partners at the WSJ Market Data Group.
Like everything else at General Electric (GE), its board members may be on the chopping block. The embattled 125-year-old company is staring down a potential dividend cut as it scrambles to conserve cash and halt an investor exodus which has driven its stock down 36% this year. With 18 members, GE’s board is the second largest among S&P 500 companies, behind the CME’s (CME) 20 and BlackRock’s (BLK) 17, as tracked by Institutional Shareholder Services’ Analytics.
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".
