George Soros Is Betting On the Yellow Metal to Rising Again

Recently, publicly disclosed holding regarding Soros Fund Management reveals that the firm has bought $264 million shares in Barrick Gold Corp. George Soros is a legendary investor, and when he makes such a move, he attracts market attention. Soros is betting that the yellow metal will rise again.

Other prominent investors such as Stan Druckenmiller have made a similar move. Earlier this month he stated that he considers gold to be his largest currency as central banks continue to experiment with “absurd notion of negative interest rates”. Phil Davis, CEO, PSW Investments said they are on the same page with Soros. He added gold is a sensible hedge on http://money.cnn.com/2016/05/17/investing/george-soros-betting-against-stocks-buy-gold/, not just being bearish on Dollar, but also being bearish on global currencies, which are devaluing their way to negative rates.

Investors are concerned over China economy slump. Earlier, Soros said China economy is setting up for a hard landing, and it adds fuels to global deflationary pressures, drag down stocks, and spur a recession. Besides, many countries are moving toward negative interest rate. This will influence gold positively since people will prefer to buy precious metal rather than paying a bank to hold their money. Gold return looks good when interest rate turns negative.

Moreover, investors have consistently viewed Gold as a safe haven during economic turmoil. Despite lackluster gold prices in recent years, gold for immediate delivery jumped 16 percent in the last three months. According to Bloomberg at http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-05-16/billionaire-soros-cuts-u-s-stocks-by-37-buys-gold-producer generic pricing, since 1986, this is the biggest surge.

The Soros has cut his U.S stock holding by 37 percent to 13.5 billion. On the other hand, George Soros has acquired 1.05 million shares in SPDR Gold Trust and 1.7 percent of Barrick Gold Corp holdings. Leading investment firm such as Glenview Capital Management, a hedge fund led by Larry Robbins are indicating the same move. From stock listed in the last quarter, the equity firm holding had dropped by 22 percent to $13.6 billion.

Soros spent part of his childhood escaping from Nazi Germany. He went to London school of Economics where he studied philosophy under Karl Popper. After finishing his Ph.D. thesis, George Soros could not find work. Later he found his way to finance where he has created legendary investment career in financial markets.

In 1970, George Soros established his own Fund, and created an extensive relationship with investors across the world and made tons of money for them. His Fund recorded 30% average annual returns on investments. Soros notoriety grew exponentially at international platforms when he bet $10 billion against Pound Staring in 1992. His market speculation turned out to be right, and he made $1 billion profit from a single day trade, before the end of the transactions, he had more $2 billion profit. Since then Soros earned the Moniker, “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”.

Darius Fisher is Taking over Internet Marketing with His New Company.

Status Labs is one of those companies whose ideas speaks for themselves. Reputation management is one thing that businesses lean on most, especially when customers are unfair in their ratings in order to show power. It happens a lot, it’s why most businesses get more bad reviews than negative ones. This especially rings true for smaller businesses that can’t afford to buy reviews like corporations may be able to. Darius Fisher is building a unique way to further push the barriers of internet marketing, with globally growing Status Labs at the helm of everything.

Fisher has continued to expand both the services offered via Status Labs, and their availability to countries around the world. He recognized that people need access to marketing packages that they don’t have to learn how to manage. Search engine optimization is one thing that comes to mind that your average restaurant owner in a high populated area needs to utilize but can’t! At least not alone, and that’s just one of many examples where people are missing out on large amounts of business because they don’t know where to turn.

And Status Labs isn’t just a search engine optimization solution. They do social media marketing, as well as all sorts of other promotional packages that are both affordable and targeted. There are plenty of websites out there which offer fake promotion, through fake accounts and randomly generated buzz. Instead, ranking on all major websites that matter to your business, (such as Yelp and others based around critiquing businesses in general), is exactly what you can be doing without all of the hassle.

Why should you have to go and organize all of your promotion yourself?  Status Labs, just as many other people have tried in the past, has made it easy and affordable for anyone, from small business to corporation. Whether you are just trying to get noticed more, or fix damaged reputation caused by negative, unrealistic reviews, Status Labs has got your back. Check them out on Tumblr.

The Success of Coriant Under The Leadership of Shaygan Kheradpir

Coriant has risen as one of the largest and most successful telecommunication giant in less than half a decade since it became an independent company from Nokia Siemens Networks in 2013. The success of the company can be greatly attributed to the management of the company that became more formidable when they brought in the expertise of Shaygan Kheradpir. Previously he had significantly contributed immensely to the success of Juniper where he acted as the Chief Executive Officer of the company. Coriant was created from the combination of Nokia Siemens Networks Optical Networks, Tellabs and Sycamore Networks. The company has grown its operations globally and has at least three thousand employees all over the world.

Previously Coriant has been under Nokia Siemens Networks which is owned by Marlin Equity Partners. The profound success experienced at Marlin Equity Partners due to effective leadership would also see it merge Coriant with Tellabs Inc. in the State of Illinois further expanding its operations in the United States of America.

As one of the largest telecommunication company, Coriant is actively involved in the sale of hardware and software products to other companies in different parts of the world for optical transmission of voice, data and mobile networks. The efficiency of this company has helped many companies and individuals effectively with their telecommunication needs and has stood out as one of the best telecommunication companies in Germany.

Mr. Shaygan is greatly respected among business people around the world because of his passion, tenacity and intelligence in business operations. He has had experience in business that runs for about twenty eight years working for different companies. Before he joined Coriant he had worked at Marlin Equity Partners as an operating partner. He has worked for Barclays PLC, Verizon Networks and GTE before he joined Coriant.

He is an electrical engineer from the Cornell University in the United States of America and also holds a master’s degree and a doctorate degree in the same field also from the Cornell University. Although he didn’t take up a business related course, his passion, tenacity and leadership qualities make him the right person to head Coriant and steer it to its growth. He has received praise from distinguished people in the business sector who also believe that his experience would not only have an impact on Coriant but also have a positive impact in the telecommunication sector. Mr. Shaygan joins the company as the Chief Executive Officer comes and the board chairman of Coriant.

The Ethics of Reputation Management

Since the advent of the internet, news travels fast. What’s more, the ability for companies and institutions to keep bad practices and poor service under wraps has been close to obliterated. Anyone with a bad word about any institution can now let the world know in just a few seconds thanks to endless review platforms available on the web. Review sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor have grown into huge businesses. Ironically even online reputation companies have a review site. This is a double edged sword. Reviewers are not vetted; a wide range of psychological factors can influence why something is reviewed. Thus, reputation management was born. For a set amount of money, parties can have their internet reputation scrubbed clean and formed anew. However, in some case this isn’t always justifiable.

A strange case for online reputation management, the Chancellor of the University of California, Davis has been forced to go on leave after reports circulated regarding student protestors being sprayed by campus police. The ORM industry is not regulated in any way. In fact, they claim it is possible to do anything for a set price. In this case, a very crucial social issue is being swept under the rug for the sake of the University’s name. The ethical implications of this concerned students who had heard that the Chancellor paid $175,000 to improve its online image. While the chancellor was asked to take leave, it is debatable that any wrong was committed.

However, ORM does not work by “erasing” any content on the web. It does however, dilute it through the addition of positive content. This content will theoretically outrank the negative content that is spread throughout the web. Many businesses have used online reputation management services to gurantee that their company is presented in a balanced manner. Unless a business has committed an serious crime or readily takes questional stances on ethical issues, it is likely that a few detractors will not actually present an authentic picture of the business’s operations.

Negativity isn’t always a bad things; statistics state that negative results can sometimes drive up the rank of a website in google search results. This is because of the way rankings work. There is another side of the coin where another business or person objectively targets an individual or a business due to a personal objective or simply out of competition. This can lead to unjustified negative reviews for business. So in the case of UC Davis chancellor, it is an understatement that there was some concern over the ethics of covering up an unfair action committed by campus police, however, it is unlikely that the news could have been taken down and covered up forever.

Charles Koch Believes Universities Are Promoting Sameness And Stifling Free Speech

Charles Koch the wealthy Republican donor and the youngest brother of David Koch isn’t shy when it comes to expressing his opinion. Koch is on the Forbes list of the wealthiest people in the world. He acquired that wealth by turning his family business into one of the largest privately owned businesses in the world. Koch is an MIT graduate that shuns the bright lights of New York and Washington for the corn fields of Kansas.

The eighty-year-old Koch is known for conservation beliefs, but those beliefs do cross the line of libertarianism from time to time. He has even expressed his dislike for the Republican candidates recently, and he openly said Hillary Clinton may be the best person to occupy the White House for the next four years.

Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, and Charles Koch don’t see to eye to eye often. But both men feel America’s colleges, and universities are doing students an injustice by stifling free speech and taking the high road when it comes to inviting controversial figures to express their opinions of campuses around the country. Mr. Koch said students as well as college administrators and professors that go against “the culture of conformity” that exists on campuses today are ostracized, face sanctions, and are considered disruptive.

Koch believes freedom of expression and speech are empty words without the freedom to offend. But Bloomberg and Koch say universities are playing it safe and avoiding topics and people that may cause students and faculties discomfort. This closed system of coddling like ideas is ruining the basic foundation that universities have relied on for centuries. If colleges had not address topics like civil and women’s rights, gay and lesbian marriage and other controversial topics years ago the progress that has been made to accept, these touchy issues would have fallen in the arms of segregation, separation, and isolationism.

College students must be allowed to express their opinions openly and freely, according to Koch. In order for the United States to stay on top of the expanding awareness of rights, freedoms, and individualism, institutions of higher learning must set the example, according to Koch.
