George Soros Revamps His Market Strategy

  • Posted on July 20, 2016 at 2:44 am

The world can be a highly volatile place. This has been particularly true in recent years as many changes have been noted across the world. Governments have fallen in places such as the United Kingdom and Germany. Those leading China seem to be unsure what should be the best way to help their people find peace and prosperity today. This has helped lead to potential instability in the financial market. One person who has been relied on for leadership in making sense of the markets is investor George Soros. Soros is one of the world’s richest men. He has a vast fortune that he has been able to amass as a result of being able to read the markets of the world quite accurately. Those who follow the markets know that they can rely on his judgement and his reading of the way the world’s markets interact with each other.

His Latest Move

As revealed in the Wall Street Journal, Soros has decided to return to the world of market trading. His efforts in recent years have been largely directed towards the promotion of causes that he cares about such as the presidential campaign of Ms. Clinton. It has been noted by market observers that he has chosen to stay out the market in the last few years. This is why many close watchers were startled to see that Soros has made the decision to back to the world of trading. Many people were even more startled to note that George Soros has chosen bearish investments based on his clear expectation that the markets may suffer some reverses. His investments have largely been of a conservative nature. His investments have been in commodities such as gold. Gold is one of the most common places for bearish investors to move to when they are concerned about falling markets. Such investments are often perceived as safe havens that help investors avoid losses.

One Of The World’s Most Respected Investors

A native of Hungary, Soros is noted for his vast understanding of markets around the world. He currently divides his time between many places including the United States and Europe. As a result of his work in this field, he has enjoyed tremendous success and a great deal of respect from those who know that investing can be tricky and confusing. His best known success came from a series of educated guesses about the path of the Pound, the currency used in the United Kingdom. He is currently clearly concerned about the recent decision in Great Britain to leave the European Union and go forward as a potentially isolated place. This may be influencing his decision to invest in gold and gold mining stocks.

Madison Street Capital’s Co-Founder Anthony Marsala Receives Another Industry Award

  • Posted on July 11, 2016 at 3:46 pm

Chicago-based Madison Street Capital is known for putting merger and acquisitions together. Madison Street Capital was co-founded by Charles Botchway and Anthony Marsala. Those two seasoned financial experts saw a need for a company that could put small and medium size companies together and produce a profitable offspring. Marsala as well as Botchway have been honored for their work in the financial industry. But the latest honor goes to Tony Marsala.Tony was recently honored by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony was given the 40 Under Forty Recognition Award for 2015.

Marsala was one of the recipients because he made great strides in categories like business valuations, litigation consulting, financial forensics and expert witness testimony. If those categories sound like legal descriptions they are, according to the Executive Staff of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. The Executive Staff takes their nomination process seriously, and so does the financial industry. According to the NACVA judges they were overwhelmed with the results that Marsala produced in 2015

Receiving the 40 Under Forty Award is not taken lightly by the nominees. The nominees are a select group of outstanding performers from different industries. The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Consultants’ Training Institute are rooted in superior quality, excellence, and the pioneering spirit of visionary leaders like Tony Marsala. The 40 Under Forty Recognition Award gives recipients a voice and more opportunity in their perspective industries. Brien K. Jones, the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President for NACVA and the CTI, said the nominees are the best of the best, and they are experts in their industries.

But the Madison Street Capital team knew that Marsala was an expert long before he started receiving awards for his performance in the accounting and financial industry. Marsala is responsible for putting mergers together in all parts of the world. There is a lot of talk about the government putting more restrictions on mergers and acquisitions, but that hasn’t stopped Marsala from putting medium size companies together in a room and working out the details of a merger or an acquisition that could change their future. https://network.axial.net/a/company/madison-street-capital/

Marsala appreciated the recognition by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony also said that 2016 is shaping up as another excellent year for Madison Street Capital’s M&A division. Even though there is a recession in Europe, Asia, and South America and the economy in the United States is slowing down, the merger and acquisition business is better than ever. Marsala said companies in Europe want to merge with companies in the United States because of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.

Sugar The Shih Tzu Is A Very Happy Dog Thanks To Beneful

  • Posted on June 18, 2016 at 12:49 am

I have a Shih Tzu named Sugar. As many people know Shih Tzu’s are a very spunky, gentle, playful, and alert dog breed. Shih Tzu’s are also one of the smaller dog breeds out there. Sugar is, in fact, a spunky, gentle, playful, alert, and small dog just like other Shih Tzu’s out there. Sugar was not named Sugar because of the color of her fur but instead named Sugar because she is tiny like a grain of sugar is. Sugar was definitely the runt of her litter which means she was the smallest one out of all the puppy’s. We choose Sugar because the fact that she was smaller than the rest of her litter made her unique. Sugar eats Beneful dog food by Purinastore on a daily basis to keep her spunky, playful, and alert. I buy Sugar 3 different types of Beneful dog food and one type of dog treat that Beneful makes. The 3 different types of Beneful dog food that I give Sugar are Beneful incredibites dry dog food in the beef flavor, Beneful chopped blends wet dog food in the turkey flavor, and Beneful incredibites wet dog food in the salmon flavor. Beneful incredibites comes in both dry and wet dog food and the reason I give Sugar both types is because she likes the salmon flavor and it is currently only offered in a wet dog food [https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/] version. Beneful incredibites extremely easy for Sugar to chew because they are bite size pieces of dog food made for little dogs instead of big pieces of dog food. Beneful chopped blends in the turkey flavor has not only turkey in it but also has brown rice, sweet potatoes, and spinach in it which makes it like a Thanksgiving feast all in one container for Sugar. Sugar especially likes the Beneful chopped blends in the turkey flavor dog food because she loves sweet potatoes. The one kind of dog treat that I buy for Sugar is the Beneful dental ridges in the mini size because they help to not only keep her teeth clean but also make her breath smell better and she has stinky breath when I don’t give them to her. Beneful is available online, visit their Amazon page.

Supporting Ukraine is EU’s Greatest Hope, Soros Insists

  • Posted on June 8, 2016 at 2:21 pm

As the British referendum to withdraw from membership in the European Union looms ever closer, concern over the fundamental health of the EU is increasing. Europe faces a number of crises. The Greek debt problem promises no quick solution; the euro appears more fragile and embattled than ever; the crisis across the eurozone posed by asylum seekers from the Near East both destabilizes and chips away at EU member-states’ confidence in their leaders. And as confidence wanes, demands for change become more radical.

One voice offering EU leaders rational and constructive advice is that of George Soros, financier, chairman of Soros Fund Management, and head of the Open Society Foundation. In a recent article for the New York Review of Books, Soros identified the current situation in the Ukraine as deserving the highest priority for the European Union. Europe must support the Ukraine by continuing sanctions against Russia and by providing increased financial support. If the problems posed by the Ukraine are correctly dealt with, Soros insists, the EU stands to gain a valuable bulwark against Russian military and economic aggression as well as a renewal of its own morale. If ignored or mishandled, however, the Ukrainian situation threatens to strengthen Vladimir Putin’s stand and to further destabilize the EU.

Soros has posited the existence of a “new” and an “old” Ukraine. The latter was controlled by moneyed oligarchs who put self-enrichment before the welfare of the state; the old Ukraine was led by former president Viktor Yanukovych and his party, driven from power during the Maidan revolution in February, 2014. The “new” Ukraine is determined to carry out reform and to right the wrongs of its political past. It is strong, vibrant, and willing to sacrifice its own current interests for a better tomorrow. If the EU can bolster the new Ukraine, not only with sanctions against Russia but with direct financial assistance, it promises to become a valuable and capable ally. But if the new Ukraine is allowed to stagnate and lose heart, it will take at least a generation to rebuild the spirit of reform that it currently demonstrates.

A New Policy to Rescue Ukraine

Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough

The European Union, Soros insists, has been treating the new Ukraine like Greece when it comes to being willing to invest in the country’s future. Many EU member countries strongly oppose further financial bail-outs for Greece. But to treat the new Ukraine like Greece and to hesitate to invest in its financial security and growth would, George Soros Ukraine maintains, be very wrong-headed. The Ukraine needs a lot of cash to stabilize its economy and to help it build upon its strengths. Irrespective of how the EU should deal with Greece, one of its own members, it certainly should be willing to bolster the Ukraine with financial assistance at this crucial moment. To do so would not only gain Europe a valuable ally; the Ukraine’s successful recovery from recent trials would serve to discredit Vladimir Putin’s policies, causing further financial stress in Russia and weakening Putin’s popularity among Russian voters.

Of course, another way to help your dog lose weight is to ensure that he gets plenty of exercise. If you can, walk your dog regularly or play Frisbee or catch with him in the yard. If you are keeping your dog active for weight loss and good health, you may want to feed him Beneful‘s Playful Life dry dog food. This blend is designed with extra protein from real beef and eggs.


Once your dog has reached a healthy weight, you can switch him to any number of other dog foods. Beneful provides many choices in both wet and dry foods for puppies and adult dogs.
