Today we look at apparel retailer Roots which is up about 13 per cent over the past three months. That is ahead of the INK Canadian Insider and the S&P/TSX Composite Indices, both up about 3 per cent over the same period. However, Roots has consistently traded below its October, 2017, IPO price of $12. The stock is now within striking distance and it seems chief executive officer James Gabel is betting the stock will overtake it. On Jan. 15, he spent $283,000 buying 25,000 shares at $11.32.
ImmunoVaccine Inc. is almost about 75 per cent over the past six months. The stock got a boost from recent news including a Dec. 7 announcement that it would be expanding collaboration with UConn Health on its DPX-NEO program which aims to develop patient-specific immunotherapies targeting neoepitopes. Since Christmas, two directors bought a total of 30,000 shares in the market as the stock pulled back from its highs.
We last featured Mogo Finance Technology on June 17. The stock subsequently set a 52-week high of $8.59 on Nov. 29, but has pulled back. Nevertheless, it remains up more than 60 per cent since our June feature. On Dec. 28, Mogo closed a $30-million offering priced at $7 a share. We suspect some of those proceeds are helping with its MogoCrypto platform development.
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".
