Over the past 20 years, online auction house eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) has generated returns of more than 4,500% for investors, even including a period where it lost some 80% of its value. Long-term results like that are the dream of every stock investor, but of course, they're hard to come by. In the market, there are no guarantees, but you can start by picking companies where the potential for major, multibagger gains exists.
The stock market continues to hit new, record highs daily, and while a rising tide often lifts all boats, that's not always the case for each industry and every stock. We asked three Foolish investors to each highlight a stock that could be a raging success for investors in the current market environment. They chose National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), and Callaway Golf (NYSE:ELY).
Back when oil prices started to climb out from the abyss in February of 2016, it would have been reasonable to think that oil and gas stocks wouldn't get that cheap ever again. That is especially true with integrated oil and gas companies that are some of the best-capitalized businesses in the world, with assets touching every part of the oil & gas value chain to offset commodity volatility.
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".
