Stocks have been surprisingly resilient in the face of bigger picture risks around the world, though some would argue that it isn't all that surprising. There hasn't been a significant pullback in the U.S. markets since the end of 2015 into early 2016, when the S&P 500 fell by around 14 percent between early November and mid February.
After President Donald Trump spurred backlash incendiary comments last weekend about the violence in Charlottesville, the three female CEOs on Trump's Strategic and Policy Forum got the ball rolling about appropriate responses. The question, as they saw it, was whether it was better to remain on the Trump forum, with the ability to influence the White House. Or did it make more sense to back away to show disdain for the president's seeming support of white nationalists.
Debt is bad. At least, that's what I grew up hearing from my father and mother. They came from a generation that saw debt as a set of financial handcuffs, and in many ways, they're correct. When you spend more than you make, the resulting deficit needs to be dealt with and often people use revolving lines of credit, like credit card debt. While credit card debt itself shouldn't be feared, accumulating too much of it can be one of the most damaging things you do to your financial situation.
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".
