The Benefits Of Investing In Gold Over The Long-Term

Standard

Gold has often stood as a key ingredient in the economic life of many people and cultures for thousands of years. The price of gold is one of the most watched and talked about topics in the financial world. However, gold like other commodity does not have a traditional valuation; for this reason, its price is determined by market forces of supply and demand. Gold has many qualities including monetary value, safe haven for investment and aesthetic durability. Some of the compelling reasons, why many people and investors are putting their money on gold include:
• Used as a means to protect investment from currency devaluation
• Gold acts as a financial cushion during banking and economic crisis
• Gold does not have a counter-party risk compared to paper money

In addition, many financial experts advise that investors keep between 5 to 15% of their portfolio on gold, since it is the best alternative for people who do not like to invest in other forms of money such as investment securities and cash. The experts also believe that gold is still the best cushion against deteriorating stocks and bonds as well as high inflation. When you compare the price of oil and that of gold at the second half of 2014 to the start of 2015; the price of gold has actually strengthened. Indeed, the price of an ounce of gold increased from $300 in 2002 to a high of $1900 in 2011. Statistics also indicate that the price of gold has risen by 315 percent in the past one and a half decade.

THE PIGS ARE GOING TO GET SLAUGHTERED

The bulls and bears are who make the money. Pigs will only get squashed. In other words, you have to know when it’s time to remove yourself. A good investor never leaves too much on the table. You have to have the courage and intelligence to know when to walk away.

TAXES ARE GOOD

Yes, I know how this all sounds. Here me out. Any sort of gains you get, they will come and go. Don’t spend your time obsessing about how many gains you are getting. It’s okay to suffer some losses. This is where the taxes come into play. Pay your taxes when it’s time. You will be thankful for this move later.

DO NOT BUY IN BULK

This is one time where buying in bulk is not going to worth it. Buy over time. Put things in stages. Buy when the time is right, not when your emotions are ruling the roost.

NOT REFUNDS

Please do not buy into damaged companies. The best thing to do is buy into damaged stocks. Damaged stocks can be repaired. Companies will not be. Learn to tell the difference.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND REMEMBER TO DIVERSIFY

This is a good life lesson in general. Please remember to do your homework on everything you invest in. This goes for anything in life, a relationship or an investment. Invest your time, not just your money. Also, remember to keep your options open. Do not close the door on certain possibilities, just because they are dressed under a different headdress.

Efficient Global Expansion for FreedomPop

Standard

When FreedomPop was first established by Founder and COO Steven Sesar back in Los Angeles we are sure that they never dreamed of the sort of success that the company is enjoying. FreedomPop is a freemium mobile carrier that hooks customers up with phone plans that fit their needs, not just their wallets. For the better part of the past few years we have seen FreedomPop grow into a juggernaut in the market and now, as reported by Digital Trends, they are taking the show on the road and looking at a global expansion. Right now FreedomPop has set their sights on the busy UK market and alpha testing has already been put under way.

What FreedomPop on iTunes offers customers is pretty special when they are compared to the competition that is so prevalent in the market. FreedomPop offers a completely free phone service, with no strings attached, that caters to users who need a phone but can’t afford the bloated services launched by the ‘big names’. Users get 200 minutes, 200 texts, and 200 MB of data completely free and are only ever charged if they go over their base amounts or make the decision to upgrade into a premium plan. For UK customers this service could prove to be revolutionary as it is the equivalent of a basic phone plan — but completely free.

For UK subscribers there is the chance to get involved with FreedomPop in a no risk/all reward way by utilizing the alpha program. Subscribers are given the base plan completely free and then are also offered the premium plan (valued at $13 to $18) for free for an additional month. Users can take advantage of this offer via the SIM card option as FreedomPop is still working on a full hardware launch overseas. The UK is a crowded market and it is essential that this alpha program go well for their launch to become more firm.

FreedomPop has eyes set on a global expansion and so far they are taking care of business. Partnerships with Asian and Dutch carriers has given FreedomPop wings into new countries and COO Sesar is aimed at making FreedomPop work in a “global context”. Sesar went on to detail how the FreedomPop goal right now is to expand into eight new markets, surpass over a million subscribers in these new markets, and continue their evolution as a product and brand.

Houston Developer Haidar Barbouti Doing Well Despite Housing Setback

Standard

Many are wondering when the fortunes of Houston’s once thriving real estate industry will ever rise to prosperity again. According to some, it’s a coin flip. Houston is the 8th largest city in the U.S. However, unlike many large cities that have large home prices to match, Houston’s housing market was pretty reasonable.

The good news is, although Houston’s market is considered “unhealthy,” the industry is ripe for a comeback — eventually. “We are on the road to recovery and making progress, and there are some signs that things well get better — but it’s going to be a while,” according to Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries. He went on to say that millennials are not as interested in buying homes as their parents. “Not everyone is getting married or ready to start families at this point,” says Humphries. He went on to say that the one thing that could push people back towards home ownership is the fact that renting is very expensive.

While Houston’s real estate market is teetering, the commercial market seems to be doing pretty well. Haidar Barbouti isn’t complaining in the least. His nearly 25-year-old investment is paying big dividends. The Highland Village Shopping Center is one of the largest and most successful shopping places in Houston. Barbouti made the decision to purchase the property back in 1992. After some very nice upgrades and attracting upscale tenants, the property is still going strong.

Crate and Barrel, Apple Store, Starbucks and J-Crew are just of few of the tenants renting space at Highland Village. The stores are also the highest performing within their franchises operating in the U.S. Barbouti’s future plans include the addition of his own signature restaurant and a 5,000 square foot parking garage.

Instagram said real estate pros can only hope that somehow the ship will be righted and the industry will start thriving again.
