Stream Energy

Charity in America is on the rise. There is a pattern of corporate America to reinvest in the communities that made their company’s success. One of the pioneers of such a trend is stream energy. Stream energy believes that it is a just good business to help those who of health debt. The company has created an entire division dedicated to providing charitable donations to those in the charitable branch of stream energy is called stream cares. This branch has done a lot to relieve the suffering of their fellow man. Stream energy has often been on the forefronts of such efforts. For instance, stream energy was quick to respond to the victims after hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey hit Dallas Texas with such force that it took the nation by surprise. Millions of people were suddenly wading through feet of water and struggling. The rising water didn’t mean inconvenience, immense the destruction of millions of dollars of infrastructure as well as personal property. As the city quickly became a giant lake many people found that simply surviving through the event was getting more difficult. Meeting one’s basic needs in such event is incredibly difficult and there are long-term effects to this destruction. After the flood waters received many businesses have to close their doors. These businesses sometimes are only close temporarily for repair but often can close up for good. This fits millions of people a lot of work and makes the process of recovering incredibly more difficult.

Stream cares quickly jumped into the arena to provide relief for victims of the hurricane. This is not, their only effort to help those in need. Stream energy has dedicated itself it’s time to helping children in need. Stream cares has begun a project that aids homeless children with the various needs as well as gives them the opportunity to go to a local water park. For many homeless children, this is the first and potentially only time not forget such a treat. By creating this once-in-a-lifetime event for these children they believe that it will give them at least a day that they don’t have to worry. Instead, these children can focus on just being children for that day.

Sahm Adrangi is Still Following Fundamental Investing In a Bull Market

Even though the stock market has been following bullish trends for several years, Sahm Adrangi and his team at Kerrisdale Capital believe that fundamental investing is still a good way to go with proper research and analysis. Sahm Adrangi states that they have not had a lot of difficulties while picking good stocks for long-term investing while also shorting stocks that he sees as headed towards a downward trend. Despite some rather mechanical approaches that many investors have been following as of late, Kerrisdale is still sticking with the methods that have worked for them in the past.

Currently, Kerrisdale and Sahm Adrangi have shown an interest in shorting the stocks of the pharmaceutical research company Proteostasis. The Phase 2 data for one of their drugs that are still in the research and testing phases does not appear to be everything that the company is promising according to the investment firm. This is why they have chosen to take a short position on the stock as they believe that the4 gains that the company has experienced lately will surely reverse themselves quickly once the truth of the drug comes out to the public.

Additionally, the company has presented research and evidence that indicates that the land development company St. Joe’s is not going to be able to deliver on the promises that they have made to their investors concerning a large area of land in Florida. While St. Joe’s may have seen a decent amount of success while developing beachfront land, the land that is in question is almost entirely swampland and is not in a convenient location to the many attractions that draw people to the state of Florida. Their shareholders have been waiting patiently for years according to Sahm Adrangi, but he doesn’t believe that any amount of waiting will allow them to see a significant return on their investments as they had been promised by the company. When releasing their short stances on companies, Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital have extensive research to back up their claims. They have absolutely no problem releasing it to the public as they have in the past.

Mike Bagguley on Barclay Investment Bank

Mike Bagguley is a renowned scholar who graduated in 1988 holding a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Warwick. He previously worked as the Head of Macro Markets in Barclays Investment Bank until being appointed as the Chief Operating Officer.

As part of his position as COO, he speeds up the delivery of the company’s strategic plans effectively, maximizing more profits as well as cutting unnecessary costs. Additionally, Mike Bagguley co-ordinated and ensured delivery of the proposed infrastructural functions as initiated by the company, as well as overseeing the reshaping of the business, its size reduction in matters of commodity products, interest rates, and foreign exchange.

He held this position till April 2018 before bidding farewell to the organization after 17 years to become a Financial Markets Executive.

In retrospect, Mike Bagguley gave his opinion on Barclays Investment Bank’s future. He made the following observations:

  • Barclays Investment Bank might find it hard to replace the Head of the Investment Bank Tom King who retired in 2016. Barclays can save big chunks of money if they retain the £9.5m they pay King. Over two years later, King has still not been replaced.
  • CEO Jes Staley has proficiently worked in the industry and performed impeccably which should see him remain at the top position. He has halted the cash equities, cut 1,200 jobs and stopped the trading of precious metals. Such a move would fasten the radical changes, and in fact, reports have shown that the bank is now on the right track.

He was able to devise strategies and tools for the energy provider to help geologists get inside of rock layers that were six miles under the earth. This company went on to have huge success. They were sold for just over one billion dollars. This type of success excited the young engineer and gave him so much motivation in what he could do for the oil industry.

Tim Duncan founded Talos Energy in 2012 with six hundred million dollars in funding. Just one year later his company acquired Phoneix Field. It did not stop there. Talos Energy has since then gone on to acquire other assets. But one year aft that the oil markets went through a recession.

Tim Duncan has facilitated a famous billion dollar merger for the oil industry. His company recently required Stone Energy. Stone Energy was a big move for Talos Energy since Stone Energy has filed for bankruptcy. The merging of the two companies was a challenging task for the executive. But he was able to manage both companies and combine them into one during a four month process.

Paul Herdsman Has Some Useful Advice For Entrepreneurs Who Are Looking To Start A Business

Paul Herdsman wants aspiring entrepreneurs that it isn’t easy to get a successful business off-of-the-ground that it takes hard work, knowledge, and a deep commitment to do so. Herdsman would know, because he is the Chief Operating Officer of NICE Global, which is a nearshore business solutions company that was founded in 2014. The business operates out of Jamaica, and while he didn’t have a lot of experience in the beginning with building a company in the country, he learned. NICE Global works with companies who are looking to keep their customers, lower their costs, and improve their earnings, and the company offers a spread of services to do so.

 

Paul Herdsman has said time-and-time-again that happy employees stay with a company for many years instead of looking elsewhere. This is what most companies want, because training new employees on a regular basis costs plenty of money and time. Regular customers also appreciate working with the same person over the years. NICE Global functions this way and treats its employees like they are family. Herdsman knows plenty about keeping a family happy and together, because he is married and a father of two children.

Paul Herdsman also recommends companies to not just hire a person to fill in a position. Instead, he suggests they should train them well, so they can do their job the right way. By giving them the proper training, employees will feel more confident and happy, and companies should continue to train their employees to keep them up-to-date with the latest happenings or way of doing things. Paul Herdsman also recommends that companies reward their good employees for accomplishing the kinds of things that will actually improve the company.

 

Paul Herdsman knows that the best companies are the ones that solve a problem for the people who come looking for help. The way to be able to solve people’s problems is to ask the right questions. Without having a deeper understanding of what is troubling the individual, companies will fail in responding to their needs. To Herdsman, this isn’t a complicated matter, but it is one that many companies fail to do right.

 

In the article, “Lessons from Entrepreneur Paul Herdsman”, Herdsman gives six lessons: create culture, invest in the players, reward employees for performing well, understand everyone’s position, find the best people, solve a problem for clients.

Matt Badaldi Implores Investors To Get Their Freedom Checks

A new tax plan was passed that will result in the fattening of the coffers for many corporate entities as well as the swelling of bank accounts for many Americans that made the wise decision to follow the advice of financial analyst Matt Badaldi and invest in what he has dubbed as ‘Freedom Checks.’

The benefits afforded to common Americans by this little-known investment vehicle is causing a stir in investment circles. Forty-six-year-old Doug Smith of Joplin, Missouri soon expects to receive $24,075. Lisa Luhrman is another positive success story as the 57-year-old grandmother from Tulsa Oklahoma is expecting $66,570 on her Freedom Check investment. One last example is Mike Reed of Golden, Colorado, the 53-year-old is set to receive $160,923 on his investment.

Matt Badaldi introduced American investors to the concept of Freedom Checks with a video explaining the investment opportunity. The payouts received by investors is dependent on the amount invested but the potential returns as Badaldi explains rivals any opportunity in the market. In fact, Matt Badaldi has gone on record saying that the new tax plan could possibly cause Freedom Checks to soon become the biggest cash grab in the nation’s history. Watch this video at Youtube.

For a company to be a part of the program 90% or more of the company’s revenue must come from the processing, storage, or transportation of oil and gas products. If this first criterion is met then the company must also agree to pay out monies to investors in the form of Freedom Checks.

This program is not to be confused with government entitlement programs such as social security as the opportunity to invest in Freedom Checks is available to individuals of all ages with payouts to be much higher than can be expected from social security payments.

Matt Badaldi explains that the investment opportunity he has introduced to investors is known as master limited partnerships. These are business partnerships that operate as limited partnerships and are traded publicly to investors. This benefits the company by allowing it to act with a tax-free exemption until profits are distributed to investors.

The process of investing in MLPs is no more complicated than any other stock investment and checks can either be sent to the address of the investors choice or a brokerage account.

Matt Badaldi highly recommends Freedom Checks to those that value his investment advice and points out one last benefit for those still on the fence. No taxes are paid on MLP investments, and when shares are sold, they are then taxed at the much lower capital gains tax rate versus the personal income tax rate.

End Citizens United Against Rick Scott

End Citizens United, a Political Action Committee went to Federal Election Commission to file a case against Rick Scott. They claim that he had illegally used super PAC when supporting his Senate campaigns. According to PAC, a candidate performs these actions should get federal limits that are placed directly to candidates contributions. At the time of the case, Rick Scott had already raised $78 million to be used as campaign coffers.

It is accordance to super PAC purview that a candidate can raise as much money as possible and then spend the much they want, but the money should not be directly working with processes of campaigns. End Citizens United, therefore, made accusations to Scott of violating the anti-coordination law when he was with New Republican PAC. Rick Scott was once the chairman of the group before he had decided to announce his running plans for Senate seat. PAC, therefore, pledged to give him support to win the election to the United States Senate.

The Director of Communications in End Citizens United Bozii insisted that Mr. Scott is having the interest to achieve his political ambitions than follow the law. He tried to figure out how he will be able to bypass the laws of elections. He decided to funnel soft money to his former organization super PAC which is used to support the president. Adam Bozzi also said that the existence of super PAC was to help Scott win by sidestepping financial campaign laws by paying his campaign required bills and then disclosure the laws.

Rick Scott denied the accusations vigorously. End Citizens tried to counter his denial by providing a document which was supporting Rick Scott charges of working with organization lately. For example, the End citizens pointed out PAC’s website was still listing Mr. Scott as the chairman of the organization.

End citizens were established after the 2010 frustration where the Supreme Court made decisions against Citizens United. The organization was started in 2015 so that to encourage the campaign finance reform. The mission of the organization is to get the big money completely out of the political system. They have also been supporting those candidates who have been agreeing with their agenda and also the ballot measures which addresses this particular topic. The End Citizens United tried to prove Rick Scott as not being a candidate who can believe in having campaign finance reform, and therefore it’s very important for the organization to defeat Rick Scott at the ballot box.

Rosenzweig Interviews Alex Pall

In 2012, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart first started out as the DJ and production duo known as the Chainsmokers and, by 2014, they had already dropped their first hit single, Selfie. So just how did the duo of Alex Pall and Taggart become so famous so quickly? Mathias Rosenzweig recently reached out to Pall for an interview where he talked about how The Chainsmokers came to be, how they handle their fame and fortune and where they plan on going in the future of their career. The two first crossed paths when Taggart was matriculating at Syracuse and Pall was performing at various gigs in and around New York City. Pall’s manager first brought the two together and, from there on in, they began working together on a regular basis.

It wasn’t long before they had released a whole string of hit singles and, before they knew what was happening, they had attained worldwide critical acclaim. They stand out from many other DJs by singing on their own songs but they make no apologies for it, insisting it’s essential because the songs are about their lives. When discussing their collaboration with Halsey, Alex was more than happy to sing her praises, calling her a cool, unique artist with a style all her own. He also discussed how lucky he feels to have such a wide fan base which used to be predominantly college students but has since expanded to include people of all ages.

They are truly grateful for everybody who loves and listens to their music. As for their live concerts, they’ve constantly been changing their live shows as the music industry continues to grow and evolve. While many other artists tend to lip sync during their concerts, the Chainsmokers actually sing live during their concerts. And they plan on sticking around the music scene for as long as possible as they believe things wouldn’t be the same when they return. So we wish them the best of luck on the future of their musical career and hope they will have continued success in the many years to come.

The U.S offers a Five Million Dollar Reward for Whistleblowers That Report Foreign Corruption and Assets That are Held in the United States

If you have information about corruption schemes in Brazil and know what assets are being laundered in the United States, a draft law rewards you up to five million dollars if you report the information to the public authorities in the United States. A bipartisan bill was presented in Washington on February 27th, 2018, and if it is approved, Fagali states whistleblowers may get a reward of up to five million dollars.

The Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Reward Act will grant the Secretary of the Treasury the right to determine the sides of rewards that are paid to individuals who helped to identify and recover stolen assets and report government corruption that are hidden in the United States.

There are set reward limits for individuals who make a report getting up to five million dollars and a total of 25 million dollars during the year. Under extreme situations, the Secretary of the Treasury of State can determine if the reward should be the higher value. To make this more attractive to whistleblowers the Secretary of the Treasury can also protect the identity of the person making a report of corruption and also protect them and their immediate family.

Bruno Fagali reports, to get a reward the whistleblowers must report foreign government corruption like bribery, theft, or the misappropriation of foreign public assets by public servants that result in the recovery of stolen assets. The program prohibits public officials from receiving a reward as the official must report such behavior to the appropriate authorities.

Bruno Fagali, lawyer and advocate, notes that there is one condition that has to be met to receive the reward. The person making a report has to provide information of criminal activity that would have resulted in seizure, loss, restriction, or repatriation of stolen assets that are held in a United States financial institution.

Fagali has indicated that the authors that proposed this bill did so to promote information gathering that would lead to criminal activity. That is, the thought of obtaining a reward may encourage whistleblowers to inform U.S authorities of criminal activity that would lead to misappropriation for foreign assets that are held in U.S financial institutions.

Freedom Checks: A Modern Day Gold Rush

Freedom checks initially appear to be a harmless, reliable government program, but in reality they are far from it. They have been touted much like the gold rush was as the way to make it big and to capture your piece of easy riches. However the reality of them is also much like that of the gold rush, a disappointing journey to meager returns. The term freedom check roots back to Matt Badiali who claims that these checks are tickets to wealth and uses fake stock image testimonials to sell customers on his training newsletter. Plenty of sources over promise the capabilities of freedom checks with many standing to gain from converting new followers. These websites use many tactics typical of scams, but I think a small part of each person truly hopes they have just stumbled on their ticket to riches. Read this article at Affiliate Dork.

So, what are freedom checks? Well, they are both not a scary investment trap set by the rich to ensnare helpless victims but also not the painless path to riches. They are actually a type of investment called a master limited partnership in which must like a stock you buy part of a company and receive a share of the profit like a dividend. They are a bit different than stocks though. Companies that sell them are required to generate 90% of their revenue from US natural resorces, but they also benefit from being classified as a partnership when you buy part of the company. The classification as a partnership saves money on taxes which then can be distributed to investors. This results in a high dividend investments (5 to 9 percent according to dividend.com) mostly in gas and energy companies. So the long story short: freedom checks are a solid high dividend investment, but don’t expect to get the big bucks unless you can invest the big bucks.
