Philequity held its investor briefing last Saturday at the Meralco Theater. We presented our market outlook and discussed the catalysts that will support the PSEI’s breakout past 8,000. The second part of our briefing was alloted for a presentation on the government’s tax reform program. We included the tax reform package in our briefing because we wanted to highlight the importance of the initiative in catapulting the next leg of our country’s economic growth.
Our title may ring a familiar tune to some, especially to music aficionados. This is because the title of our article sounds very much like the title of Neil Sedaka’s hit song, “Breaking up is hard to do.” Actually, in this article, we shall discuss the PSEi’s repeated failure to stage a convincing breakout past 8,000. We shall also explain the reasons that may drive the PSEi’s decisive breakout above 8,000. The PSEi first touched 8,000 in April 2015.
On Jan. 25, investors celebrated as the Dow Jones index hit the 20,000 level for the first time. In a previous article, we discussed why crossing 20,000 marked an important milestone and explained why the US stock market will continue making new highs thereafter (see 20,000, Feb.6). Six months later, the Dow is up another 2,000 points as it breached the 22,000 level for the first time ever.
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".
