Equity Expert Jim Dondero Offers Positive Forecast For 2016 Stocks

Highland Capital Management is an alternative investment management firm that manages various hedge funds, structured investment funds and distressed investment funds. They are located in Dallas, Texas and are a highly respected management firm in the equity markets. This is why there was a lot of attention focused on the most recent issue of Forbes Magazine. In it, Highland’s co- founder, and CEO, Jim Dondero wrote a contrarian article on how 2016 could be an exciting and profitable year for those investors that were paying attention. To prove his point, he has drastically altered Highland Capital Management ‘s financial strategy by moving it out of an all cash position and into a fully invested position in U.S stocks and actively managed U.S. stock funds. You can watch Jim and the Highland team ring the closing bell at the NYSE.

This position was completely different than the position that Jim took last year. In the first half of 2015, he observed that most investors seemed to be focused more on a fundamentalist strategy in the equity markets. Everyone seemed to be quite happy with the way things were going until the market took an about face in the last quarter of 2015. There still seemed to be enough optimism available to sustain more growth but this optimism appeared to have quickly eroded. This erosion seemed to be driven by several factors including the global decline in the price of oil and the about-face of the European and Chinese economic engines.

As 2016 dawned and oil continued its unparalleled decline, fear increasingly took over the capital markets driving prices even lower. All this, of course, has done nothing but yield more and more uncertainty in the U.S. Stock markets. In addition, analysts and other “experts” seem to see little to get excited about this year other than more of the same along with just a dash of conservative optimism. This is, however, where Jim’s article veers into new territory. He points out that historically the stock market is now in a most favorable position to potentially produce more than just small returns and potentially give investors some very good gains from a pendulum counter move in equities.

Charles Koch, Still in The Campaign Game

As the 2016 presidential race continues, one observer is taking issue with the lack of discussion of several key issues. That observer is none other than billionaire Charles Koch. Koch sat down for a rare interview with The Guardian recently to discuss the campaign and also to address the way he is often portrayed in the media.

Koch made it clear that he does not want to be seen as the type of person he is sometimes painted as. Koch stressed that he is interested in the political process and plans on making a substantial ($9 million) contribution to the republican campaign, even though he has serious concerns about the current crop of candidates. Koch also stressed that he considers himself a liberal, a fact which might surprise some media watchers. Koch said that he bases his style of liberalism on the 19th Century model espoused by thinkers like British politician William Gladwell.

The Issue of Muslims and Terrorism

One of the most troubling issues in the current campaign, according to Koch, is the issue of the US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. It troubles Koch deeply that none of the current candidates are discussing the role of the US in these countries, and what if any impact it has had on stemming terrorism.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has called for all Muslims in the US to officially register with the government. This idea is completely opposed to the philosophy of the US as a free thinking society, dedicated to personal freedom, and as such he finds it utterly unacceptable.

Cruz has called for carpet bombing Muslim countries that are affiliated with ISIS. Koch points out how extreme Cruz’s views are on this, while also pointing out that given the millions of Muslim people in the world, Cruz’s idea is irrational at best.

Despite his misgivings, Koch does plan on staying involved in the campaign and will eventually endorse one of the candidates. For now, we’ll have to wait and see who that candidate is.

To Serve and Protect

Keith Mann of New York City, founder of Dynamic Search Partners, and his wife are stepping forward to lend support and boost moral to the New York City Police Department by sending lunch in early January and again in February to the 54th precinct after negative publicity and protests surrounding the police force. Mr. Mann feels a connection with the NYPD because he has an uncle who is a detective in Staten Island. He knows the hardships and sacrifices that officers make on a daily basis. This is part of the job when you sign up to be a police officer.

Keith Mann decided that publicly thanking the police department would boost moral and increase public awareness of how important a job they do. It would also encourage them and let them know that many people trust and depend on them for their service. He wanted to relay the message that not everyone distrusts them. Because of the increase in crime, he feels that policemen are more at risk than ever before. With a growing number of civilians protesting and angry with police procedures he felt it was important to send another message. He wanted to send the message that a policeman’s job is of the utmost importance and without them, we would have chaos and be crime ridden.

Being a high profile businessman in New York City helped him get his message across. People rely on leaders and Keith Mann is a leader. He supports the NYPD and the gesture and message he sent was clear. NYPD, you are appreciated and trusted. Thanks for all you do.

One Chicago Entrepreneur Has Not Forgotten About Nepal’s Earthquake Victims

According to a new paper published by Nature Geoscience, the massive earthquake that torn Nepal apart in April of 2015 could happen again and soon. According to scientists that have been studying the Himalayan Thrust fault, the fault was ruptured but not all the way to the surface. The rupture stopped 11 kilometers under Kathmandu Valley, and that means as the Indian tectonic plate gradually slips under the Eurasian plate another earthquake the size of the April earthquake could happen again.
The people that were impacted by the earthquake and the subsequent quake that follow a few weeks later have been receiving aid all year from countries all over the world. But the devastation was so massive that more funds are needed to repair the infrastructure and the homes that were destroyed by both earthquakes. One Chicago man has been sending money to friends in Nepal for the last eight months, but he decided that was not enough. Majeed Ekbal, the Chicago entrepreneur, opened a GoFundMe account recently to raise more money for the victims of the quakes.
Ekbal is a successful businessman, and has his fingers in several business ventures in the “Windy City.” After graduating from American University, Ekbal came to Chicago and began investing in the real estate market. His latest venture, Expresso Inc. is a grocery delivery service on the Near North Side of the city. Expresso Inc. works with the major grocery chains as well as specialty shops, and the company has been well received.

Majeed Ekbal has stayed in contact with his friends in Nepal, and he decided he had to do more after listening to the dire conditions that still exist in certain earthquake areas. The money raised from the GoFundMe campaign will go to a CrowdRise fund that has a goal of $1 million for medical and disaster relief.
If a new earthquake strikes Nepal as predicted by the scientists studying the Himalayan Thrust fault, Nepal will need more aid and money. The scientists say earthquakes don’t usually reoccur quickly, but because the fault is held up by smaller faults it could rupture at any time.

The Wikipedia Writers at Get Your Wiki are Creating Positive Impact for Businesses

The pages on Wikipedia are of tremendous value. The most obvious value the pages present is they allow those traversing the internet with a forum for reading and researching scores of different unique topics. Also, Wikipedia is known for its credibility, which enhances its value as a research tool. 

What about the site’s value as a means of promoting a business? The answer might be a little surprising to those who see Wikipedia exclusively as an online encyclopedia, but there is also search engine, branding, and promotional benefits the web community delivers.

The shock associated with the statement is based on the indisputable fact Wikipedia does not allow any obvious marketing content. That means no one can submit content that makes direct promotional appeals. A fast food company cannot submit content discussing how great the food is or any deals or specials.

The fast food company can publish content about its founding, popular past marketing strategies, founders, and anything else that would be considered factual. Even though there is no direct marketing found in this type of content, the material does have a promotional component to it.

Crafting a historical/biographical entry for Wikipedia puts a lot of content onto the internet. The content is, of course, going to find its way to the search engines where scores of visitors will hopefully find it. As more readers come across the entries, the more promotional benefits are gained. The public learns about the business and, as long as the content is positive, then the branding results are going to be beneficial ones.

The actual steps for making a Wiki page should be turned over to a professional Wikipedia writing service. Get Your Wiki is a top service that is capable of producing business-oriented content from their team of talented Wikipedia writers who know the ins and outs of all the rules of Wikipedia. Entrepreneurs who try to craft their own pages might run into a problem. The second they violate the rules of Wiki, they run the risk of seeing the content removed. A professional service is not likely to make sure errors due to experience and familiarity with Wikipedia’s rules. Get Your Wiki writers definitely possesses the necessary experience.

Most importantly, the quality of the writing will be engaging. Readers are likely to be left with a good impression about the business, which is one step on the path towards effective branding.
