“If you bought Topix at the closing price on Feb. 26, 2007, you will have made a capital gain of 0.03% over the following 10 and 1/2 years,” Allum, a strategist at SMBC Nikko Capital Markets Ltd. in London, wrote in a note to clients.
Ironically, Png’s new business model also doesn’t involve customers paying for research. Png is providing her reports for free, and expects advertising to make up about half of revenue. Making money from ads will give her more freedom in what she covers, said Png, who declined to give details on her website’s readership or customers using her work. Her site is currently ad-free as she seeks to increase reader numbers. She has one partner handling the technology side of the business.
When Corrine Png lost her analyst job at JPMorgan Chase & Co. last year, she decided to go it alone, betting that new European rules would create demand for niche -- and free -- research. The former head of Asia-Pacific transport research at JPMorgan’s securities arm in Singapore, Png had featured near the top of industry analyst rankings before she was laid off in a restructuring.
File this in the “I didn’t know that category.” On the opening lines of Desolation Row, one of my favourite Dylan songs:
They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town https://t.co/ibRrdzyWZJ
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".
