On Wednesday, Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) CEO Brian Cornell gave an upbeat assessment of his company’s quarterly results. Yet it really did make him look out of touch. It’s as if he still believes the retail business is not undergoing much upheaval. Well, of course, Wall Street has a different view of things. Note that TGT stock plunged 8%. But the poor performance has not been a temporary situation. For the past five years, TGT has lost about 13% of its value.
The Vanguard Group is a behemoth, with a staggering $4.4 trillion in assets under management. This puts the firm as the No. 2 player in the asset management world, just behind BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK). Consider that Vanguard has 370 mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). There are also 15,000 employees as well as offices that span 17 countries. A key to the success has been the mission to provide low costs for investors.
Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) has lost its luster this year. This has been the case with many traditional media companies. Still, Walt Disney stock price has weathered the storm relatively well. Consider that the return is at break-even for the year. By comparison, Viacom, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIAB) is off 30% and Discovery Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) is down about 39%. The main worry for Walt Disney stock price is the ongoing trend towards cord-cutting, especially with the ESPN division.
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".
