Hicks of Southridge Capital

Stephen Hicks serves as CEO and principal of the investment manager, Southbridge Capital. He is also its founder, having done so in 1996. Prior to doing so he had already been active in the investment industry for many years. To date, he has been in this industry for more than thirty years. He first entered this world by obtaining his B.S. in Business Administration from King’s College followed by an MBA from Fordham University. It was while working for a hedge fund that he first got the idea for Southbridge. Fate gave him the chance to do this when this hedge fund ceased all of its operations.

 

The hedge fund did not close down immediately, allowing Hicks to still get paid while he started his new company that is Southbridge Capital. Today, he spends for of his time on an average day reviewing the fund’s portfolio both for his own investments and for those of his clients. And he is not the only extremely knowledgeable employee at the bank. He works with an equally as knowledgeable and experienced team. In gleaning the most current data to help them and their clients, Hicks and his team are assisted by an in-house search engine.

 

Currently, Hicks is most interested in the current rise of cryptocurrency and legal marijuana sales. He sees both of these things as clearly being the next big thing for investment managers. However, Hicks knows that a close eye is necessary for even these “next big things” because anything could happen and the deals could go south. He has learned in the past that it is always best to resist the temptation to put too much money in these that look extremely promising. He learned this a few years back by investing a ton of money in such a promising company known as Petals. Shortly thereafter it failed and he lost all of that money. He has also learned not to trust the government when it comes to business dealings. For more details you can visit newswire.com

Felipe Montoro Jens Knows How To Fix Brazil’s Economy

Some countries simply have better things than one another. In all cases – this is one of life’s few true blanket statements – multiple variables factor into the respective equations to explain why some countries have better infrastructures than their counterparts, for example.

Brazil’s very own Felipe Montoro Jens is a consultant on all things infrastructure, including the country’s failing infrastructure plans.

Every country, state, locality, or other types of government has ongoing infrastructure plans. Some of them are as minor as patching up potholes on old dirt roads, whereas others might be as complex and pricy as constructing brand-new interstate highways.

Felipe Montoro Jens recently featured in a Brazil-based article that reported – the statistics hail from the National Confederation of Industry, the voice of Brazil’s industrial sector that was hired by the Ministry of Planning – roughly 2,800 public works that were once slated to have either been completed or picked up were not, in fact, in progress or finished. More about of Felipe at ideamensch.com

Even though just two percent of the country’s gross domestic product was represented in those caught-up infrastructure projects, Felipe Montoro Jens reported that taking care of infrastructure issues in Brazil was traditionally difficult.

Things like companies abandoning their agreed-upon projects, financial issues, disputes over land ownership, and budget constraints were some of the most popular reasons for the 2,800-odd works that are still behind schedule not having been completed yet.

The National Confederation of Industries shared six things with the national government that could make delays shorter or circumvent them in the first place. The most important step to take was to improve macro- and micro-planning. Give teams better tools was another. The other three were improving the evaluation of modalities of execution, beefing up internal control, and start minting fairer contracts with builders.

Shervin Pishevar Is Certainly A Psychic – Check Out How True His February 2018 Predictions Are

Every able-minded person on Earth has made predictions about one thing or another in their lifetimes; some of us make predictions on a daily basis. Whether we gamble on the outcome of sports games; make friendly, one-dollar wagers with friends; or silently predict things to ourselves, trying – that’s a keyword as far as predictions go: trying – to guess the outcome of events is part of human nature.

It seems as if many predictions aren’t assuredly recorded. Gambling unarguably formally records most people’s predictions, whereas informal wagers for dollars or bragging rights largely go unrecorded.

Shervin Pishevar published a 50-tweet tweetstorm in February 2018 after coming back from a relatively lengthy hiatus. Mr. Pishevar took roughly three consecutive months off of the entirety of the Internet – social media platforms, financial news outlets, and even his email inboxes – prior to surprising his 90,000 followers on Twitter with the 50 tweets over a day-long period.

Below are some of the most notable things Shervin Pishevar predicted across the evening hours of February 6 and most of February 7, 2018.

Some companies are too darn powerful

Shervin Pishevar made note of “5 US monopolies: Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft [sic],” sharing that they have effectively entered an early stage of monopolization in each of their respective niches in the technology sector. Mr. Pishevar went on to write, “these 5 giants have too much power, stifling startups [sic],” something that should alarm consumers.

While many people report being frustrated by having to pay taxes – corporations feel the same way – increased taxes are necessary in order to dumb down the gross, untethered, unrestricted size of the five aforementioned Ma-Bell-like tech giants. If the federal government doesn’t redistribute their awesome wealth to society, income inequality will continue to run rampant in the US and small businesses’ inability to compete won’t help cut down on inequality.

Shervin Pishevar also claimed that the financial markets aren’t looking too hot because of rising inflation, a decline in stock markets’ value, and relatively high underemployment across the US and world at large. He claimed that “gold will rise in response,” further stating that “Bitcoin will continue to crash,” both of which have proven true thus far.
