Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ) is certainly scary for the traditional media industry. The company is the global power of the streaming market, which, along with NFLX stock, is likely to see long-term growth. During the latest quarter, the number of paid subscribers jumped by 5.3 million to 104 million and revenues rose by 30% to $2.99 billion. In light of this, it should be no surprise that NFLX stock has been one of this year’s hottest performers. So far, the return has been 56%.
One of the big knocks against JD.Com Inc(ADR) (NASDAQ: ) is that it is the second-place operator in China’s e-commerce market. Of course, the clear leader is Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: ), which has a market cap of $473 billion, making it one of the world’s most valuable companies. JD stock, on the other hand, is worth about $57 billion. Yet, comparing both BABA and JD can lead to some misleading conclusions. For example, both companies have different business models.
Not long ago, the situation did not look so rosy for Yelp Inc (NYSE: ). But the company has taken swift actions, which Wall Street has applauded. Since late June, YELP stock has gone from $30 to $46 — with the market cap reaching $3.8 billion. A key has been the company’s unloading of its food-ordering business, Eat24, to GrubHub Inc (NYSE: ). This resulted in an influx of $287.5 million in cash (Yelp purchased the company in 2015 for $134 million).
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".
