I’ve been pounding the table for Bank of America Corp (NYSE: ) for most of this year. And while it took a bit of patience, the BAC stock price finally broke out in September. BAC stock has climbed nearly 30% just since Labor Day. It’s jumped a sizzling 144% since hitting $12 back in July 2016. Those gains alone in the typically stodgy consumer banking sector might make investors at least think about taking profits at this point.
Up front, I’ll admit I’ve been too cautious so far on Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: ). I’ve been skeptical of the stock, only to watch the GOOGL stock price climb 32% this year and clear $1,000 for the first time. Truthfully, my opinion hasn’t changed all that much this year, though the market clearly disagrees. I think there is some intriguing value in the company’s “Other Bets”, including the autonomous driving unit Waymo.
Lululemon Athletica inc. (NASDAQ: ) has had a big run. On June 1, the Lululemon stock price hit a 17-month low heading into first-quarter earnings. Since then, however, LULU stock has gone almost straight up, gaining 57% and touching its highest levels in 15 months. There’s reason for optimism. I didn’t think Q1 earnings were spectacular — but they were a step in the right direction. Q2 was solid, and Lululemon posted another beat last week.
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".
