Buffett Says Anyone Can Turn $40 to $10 Million

Posted on

When Warren Buffett speaks, usually he has an understanding about what he is talking about. Recently he told a small group of investors that it is possible to turn $40 to $10 million, you just have to take his simple yet sound advice.

Buffett tells a story about how if you purchased $40 worth of Coca Cola stock back in 1919, it would be worth near $10 million today. Now one thing is for certain, that $40 in 1919 is not the same as 2015, but if you want to compare numbers that way, it only amounts to $500 in today’s money. It was not the timing of the investment or the circumstances like sugar prices either, it all comes down to the company itself.

Buffett warns that no investor like Christian Broda should try and time the market. Trying to buy on the bottom and sell at the top is a recipe for disaster. No one can tell when a company will and will not encounter trouble. The key to growing that money is choosing a sound company and getting in the game sooner than later. If you can put even a small amount of money in stocks that you believe in, time will do all the rest. Stock splits alone could mulitply your investment at record numbers, you just have to believe the company is going to be around and let them worry about all the details while you leave your money alone to grow and work for you over the years to come.

The Social Security Disability Fund Will Be Out Of Money Next Year

Posted on

The government has repeatedly said that Social Security is in trouble. The lack of financial foresight by Congress has depleted the Social Security disability fund, and that means 11 million Americans will feel the financial impact of this very disjointed Congress. The government will have to make some drastic cuts in Social Security benefits in 2016, and it’s not going to be pretty or well accepted.

Disability benefits will have to cut by 19 percent next year unless Congress wakes up and injects more money into the fund. The most annoying fact about this shortfall is the lack of urgency that lawmakers have when it comes to Social Security benefits. Lawmakers can bail Wall Street out in a matter of days, but they ignore the security of millions of people for years.

Susan McGalla, the Pittsburgh based consultant, and the Director of Strategic Planning and Growth for the Steelers knows how annoying lawmakers can be. McGalla was the CEO of Wet Seal and president of American Eagle Outfitters, so she has experience dealing with lawmakers and their finicky financial deals. This new revelation is no surprise to McGalla.

Disabled workers receive an average monthly benefit of $1.017. If Congress doesn’t act by injecting money into the Social Security fund, those disabled workers will lose about $193 a month, and that could just be the beginning of this financial nightmare.

Housing Market Sees Mixed Signals In Recovery

Posted on

The housing market has struggled ever since the 2008 recession. Despite the economic recovery over the past seven years, housing has not demonstrated consistent growth like economic indicators have. Large construction projects owned by Shaygan Kheradpir
are still hard to come by, and most remain rentals, as banks have shown a reluctance to finance for sale projects such as condominiums.

Recent housing data continues to send mixed signals. Although multi family housing starts have increased over the past several months, single family home starts for June of 2015 were at a three month low. This is particularly surprising given that June is the start of the construction season.

The mixed data from the housing market will require investors to give particularly strong scrutiny to their investments. Some Real Estate Investment Trusts continue to go forward and recruit new investment minds. The NexPoint Residential Trust has appointed James Dondero as Chairman of the Board. Dondero, the President of Highland Capital Management, will provide leadership to Nexpoint as it seeks investment opportunities in a turbulent real estate market.

It may be too much for real estate investors to ask for the sky high returns of the 1990s and early 2000s. As the recent data shows, the real estate recovery remains sporadic, and investors looking to recoup profits from the market will have to be prepared for greater volatility than in the past.

Posted on

I have found out recently an article about Joseph Bismark on Please Don’t Ask Alice, and it has recently inspired me in so many ways. Joseph Bismark is changing the way business is growing. He has been one of the few people that has changed the way corporations grow their business. Joseph is one of the few people in the business marketing industry that didn’t grow up normally the way other corporate managers and CEOs of companies may have been brought up. Find out how Bismark is using his off upbringing as a way to help businesses and change people’s lives, along with inspire people like myself to become a better businessman.

Joseph grew up as a normal young kid, but when he turned nine years old, he decided to become a monk. He studied the beauty of learning and being in connection with God. He moved to the Mac ashram amounts right in the Philippines, and that is where he spent the next several years. He studied, meditated, and understood the beauty of one’s spirituality and finding one’s soul in life. He then left at the tender age of seventeen to work in the corporate industry, and it is there’s where he developed the knowledge that would eventually turn him into the managing director for the IQ Group, along with one of the co-founders of the QNet family.

His Philosophy On Business 

The one thing he has always believed in is the power of team work. He knows how to work with his employees and bring them to a new level of knowledge straight off the bat. He believes that everybody in any way can learn and excel in their craft. With just a quick push, you too can lead people to excellence in the workplace. I have found that the teachings of this man are very high level and can work for almost any type of business in the industry. He never seems to let his spirituality and upbringing stop him; instead he is using it as a way to improve upon everything at work.

Posted on

On June 30th, the community of Burien outside of Seattle, Washington drew one step closer to realizing Kellie Bassen‘s dream of making a lovely new dog park a reality. Beneful Dog Food supported the community-wide effort on behalf of local pooches and their owners by making a generous donation of $20,000.

Beneful Dog Food originated in 2001. The firm’s popular Facebook page has already received well over a million “likes,” a reflection of the popularity of Beneful’s flavorful variety of pet food products.

Kellie Bassen helped inspire efforts to establish an exercise facility for dogs in Burien when she contributed a pirate-themed entry in a national dog park contest offered by Beneful in 2013. Although Burien did not win, Kellie’s entry became a runner up in the influential competition. Afterwards, she continued to work with other members of the Burien community to attract support for the new dog park. Visit Beneful on petco for great deals.

The volunteer efforts paid off. On June 30th, residents of the Washington community celebrated achieving their $60,000 target ahead of schedule.

Highline Public Schools donated the land and LAStudio LLC, an architectural firm offered pro bono work drafting the designs.

New PAC Rules Impact Presidential Campaigns

Posted on

Since the previous U. S. presidential election campaign in 2008, significant changes have occurred that impact the rules concerning political action committees (“PACs”). Currently, although individual candidates may only accept maximum donations from any single individual contributor in the amount of $2,700, funds called Super PACs may raise unlimited amounts to advertise civic issues that could affect the perception of candidates in the race.

The changes to rules concerning PACs hold a variety of interesting consequences for political campaigns this year. In the crowded Republican presidential primary field, for instance, experts estimate that Jeb Bush will benefit from an estimated $114.4 million dollars, through direct campaign contributions and through supportive Super PACs spending. Candidate Ted Cruz is expected to benefit from $51 million dollars in funds.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s candidacy has already generated an estimated $8 million in a comparatively brief period of time, $2 million in direct campaign contributions and another $6 million in supportive PAC contributions. His entire 2008 campaign raised approximately $9 million.

The Huckabee Campaign also became the first to attract a specifically anti-candidate Super PAC this month. Reportedly, California political consultant Fred Karger established a Super PAC called “Truth Squad 2016.” The PAC press release alleges Mike Huckabee maintained a “horrific record as Governor of Arkansas” in directing publicity to the former Arkansas Governor’s grant of clemency to a prisoner who later ambushed four police officers.

Corey Stoll Interviewed About His Role in “Ant-Man”

Posted on

The latest Marvel film, “Ant-Man” comes out in theaters tomorrow. Actor Corey Stoll, who plays the supervillian Yellowjacket in the film, was recently interviewed by ScreenRant about his role in the movie.

In the film Stoll plays Darren Cross A.K.A Yellowjacket, who is the former protege and now enemy of Hank Pym. Pym and his new protege, Scott Lang (who are the former and current holders of the title “Ant-Man”) work to block Cross from selling Pym’s dangerous technology to the highest bidder.

Stoll stated that he loved the fact that Cross is a multi-dimensional villain, one who seems intimidating and successful on the outside but is really a “very small, pathetic, obsessed with beneful, nerdy loser” on the inside.

Although he never actually got to wear the Yellowjacket suit himself, Stoll’s motions and movements were captured so that the filmmakers could use them when creating the miniature version of Yellowjacket. He also wore an approximation of the suit for the large-sized Yellowjacket. Commenting on that outfit, he said it was super fun and then added, “It’s one thing to do that in a low-budget movie where you’re like, ‘I hope this looks good,’ but when you know that they’re the best in the world at what they do, you can approach that with confidence even though you’re in pajamas with pink polka dots all over them.”
