Finding Legal Issues in Unexpected Places

It’s self apparent that the law is a part of everyone’s life. But I, like most people, tend to think of it on a very personal level. I consider how my actions would fit into the law. But I don’t often consider the underlying legal factors and deals which allow medications to get onto the market. Or where those profits will end up going. But a recent case involving Laidlaw & Company has made me far more aware of just how ubiquitous legal issues really are.

U.S. Federal Court Issues Temporary Restraining Order Against Laidlaw & Company And Its Principals Matthew Eitner And James Ahern

Laidlaw & Company recently received a temporary restraining order and associated injunction. The investment bank is currently settling legal matters between itself and a clinical-stage company by the name of Relmada Therapeutics. And the medical company is insistent that Laidlaw & Company has been spreading misleading information about them. It seems plausible enough for the court to begin acting on that concern even while proceedings are still in motion. The matter is further complicated by the fact that Laidlaw & Company had previously served as an investment banker to Relmada Therapeutics. As an outside observer, I found this entire situation fascinating and rather complex.

Looking into Laidlaw & Company helped to add a little extra context for me. To be sure, it’s still a complex case. But I was at least able to understand where Laidlaw & Company was coming from. The company’s principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern, are highly featured within the Laidlaw & Company site. I also found it quite interesting to see the company’s history, dating all the way back to 1846. To put things into the proper historical context, Lincoln was only just getting married when Laidlaw & Company were formed.

Laidlaw & Company strikes me as an investment bank which has a lot of momentum behind it. It’s easy for a company with such an extensive history to seem a bit overly harsh at times. But I also believe that any entity which has survived intact since 1846 will by necessity have some bluntness to its approach at times. If so, it’s a philosophy which seems to be working for it since they’re thriving in both the US and Europe.

Bearish George Soros Is Hunkering Down For Economic Failure

For years now, George Soros has made very few changes to his investment strategies. Yet, now he is making some big changes that signal he has become a bearish investor, hunkering down, preparing to weather a bad economic storm that George Soros claims to see just over the horizon, as it were. Many investment analysts are paying attention. He has been right so many times before, that they are smart to pay attention to his wisdom. He has, after all, amassed his own fortune of approximately $30 billion.

Soros has made many comments in the last year, some of which ended up in publications on Wall Street, that make it clear he does not intend to continue supporting stocks that he believes may completely fail in the near future. He has sold millions of his equities assets and then turned around and immediately bought large amounts of gold and invested in active gold mines. Both of these moves signal his belief in a major economic downturn, very soon.

He has made many comments pertaining to China’s economic problems with corruption and over-growth in all of their markets. He says he is concerned that China’s finances will soon drop through the floorboards. George Soros worries that China’s problem will become everyone in the world’s problem soon, similar to how Greece caused major upheaval in the European Union (EU) when they defaulted on a major loan, but on a much bigger scale. He believes not only all Asian countries will have their economies pulled down, but that everyone who relies on China, including much of the West will suffer as well.

A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again

George Soros just made big bearish bets? Everybody panic… and then consider buying

The reason analysts are so concerned is that Soros has been right in his predictions and investment savvy, on very similar situational terms, a number of times in the past. He certainly did correctly predict the fall of the British pound in the 1980s, betting against it by shorting it in the market. He was proved right and his investment paid off well over a billion dollars for him. This is why everyone is so concerned and paying close attention to Soros’ actions.

Born in the Eastern European country of Hungary in the year 1930, George Soros has always come out on top. When the German Nazi regime invaded his country in World War II, he was a teenager who resisted and survived. In the early years of the Cold War, after the end of World War II, Soros escaped Soviet occupation and made it to England. There he absorbed himself in studies at the famous London School of Economics. After graduating, he moved to the U.S. Not only has he amassed a large fortune, he has also been quite involved in social activism, promoting political reform, and lots of generous philanthropy. This includes his founding of the Open Society Foundations (OSF). The OSF promotes human rights and democracy in all parts of the world where people are being oppressed by their own governments.

Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts Made A Comeback In 2016 After Four Years Of Drought

Last year was a miserable year for the ski resorts in Northern and Southern California. In fact, 2015 was a miserable year for the residents of California. Mandatory water rationing was the flavor of the day for residents.

Fruit and vegetable farmers were trying to stay afloat in the driest weather in decades. Ski resorts had to make their own snow to compensate for the gaps in real snow on their precious ski runs.

But some skiers still said Lake Tahoe ski resorts runs felt like dirt instead of snow. The 60-degree temperatures and the lack of snow closed several resorts in Northern California, but Squaw Valley, the mother of all ski resorts, stayed open as long as it could thanks to the smart thinking of Andy Wirth, the CEO, and Chairman of Squaw Valley.

Andy Wirth was a guest on the Press Play with Madeline Brand KCRW radio show. Mr. Wirth said that his ski resort had a decent 2015 in spite of the four-year drought. Squaw Valley is an enormous piece of property. Wirth told Brand that 4,000 acres of the 6,000-acre ski resort were available for skiing in 2015. Learn more about Andy Wirth:

Wirth did say that the drought made skiing harder because of the amount of fresh snow was not up to par, and that cut into Squaw Valley’s profits. Revenue was down 20 percent in 2015, and Brand wondered how many seasons Squaw Valley could survive if the drought continued to stick around.

Wirth said that Squaw Valley is financially sound and would be able to survive several years of light snowfall. But thanks to the presence of El Nino in 2016, Squaw Valley made a big comeback.

Madeline continued to ask Wirth some tricky questions, but Andy has the experience and the know-how to answer them. Mr. Andy Wirth was actually born in Nuebrucke, West Germany, and his parents said that Andy’s first love was being outdoors in nature.

He attended Colorado State University and fell in love with skiing and the Rocky Mountains. He became a backcountry ranger during his school years, but Wirth continued his studies at Edinburgh University in Scotland.

His grandfather was a US National Parks Service Director. In 1986, Andy took a job as an intern at the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation. Andy Wirth held several positions with the Steamboat Ski Resort over the 20 years he spent there. In 2006, Wirth was named the Executive Vice President of Sales and Chief Marketing Officer for the company.

In 2010, Andy was named CEO of Squaw Valley, and he guided the resort through a $70 million renovation. Squaw Valley is considered one of the best Ski resorts in the world thanks to Wirth’s leadership.

Brad Reifler Has Good Ideas for Investors

Forefront Capital’s Founder and CEO, Brad Reifler, has been quoted in many news articles focusing on the subject of smart investing. In his media interviews, Reifler does a nice job of pointing out that being smart with one’s investment strategy and avoiding costly mistakes may be the true path to success. Arguing with him on these points is difficult. His theories make sense. Those who make up the “99%” are absolutely advised to listen to his opinions.

Yes, Brad Reifler has made it his mission to help middle class investors explore better options for putting their money to use. Many people in the middle class have limited capital available to them and this means saving for retirement takes on an additionally important necessity. Reifler knows these investors have to be judicious with their funds. He is famous for stressing diversity in portfolios and avoiding putting too much money into the stock market. There is nothing wrong with using the stock market as an investment vehicle, but exclusively relying on it may be a major mistake.

How is that money getting into an investment vehicle. Not everyone knows how to buy investment assets on their own. So, they rely upon a broker or fund manager to handle the tasks. Beware of trusting just anybody. The fund manager/broker must have an absolutely above-board reputation.

And before doing anything, an investor really does have to perform a personal audit. Determining the primary reasons for investing help guide someone in the right direction. Not having any real clear plans, ideas, or strategies does little more than set a course of investment failure.

To reiterate, Brad Reifler’s advice is sound and somber. He is not advocating anything off-the-wall. Reifler wants people to get the most benefit out of an investing venture. Surely, the person putting the money out for the investment wants the same.  Check out his Tweets, where Brad offers free investment commentary to everyone.

Public Hero No. 1 Sanjay Shah

When a person hears ‘a rags to riches’ story, the person often thinks of American ingenuity in the land of opportunity; the United States of America. This story however, is about a man born in Kenya, but who moved to the United Kingdom as a little boy, and later went on to create his own brokerage firm that would make him millions of dollars. Sanjay Shah, is the founder and CEO of Solo Capital Partners and Autism Rocks. Autism Rocks a charitable organization devoted to working on funding research for the condition and raising public awareness about it.

As reports, Shah originally wanted a career in medicine, but after trying it for a few years, he left the field of medicine and never returned. Eventually, Shah became an accountant in a North London bank. Again, feeling dissatisfied with his career, he planned to leave the profession of accounting. Rather than quitting, the financial crisis of 2008 compelled the North London bank where Shah worked to let employees go in order to stay afloat in business. Shah was one of the employees who was let go from the bank.

It was after this moment, Shah permanently left accounting and decided to rent a small room in the outskirts of London. The small room served as his office and would become later the brokerage firm Solo Capital Partners (the brokerage firm was incorporated in September 2011). The success from Solo Capital Partners enables Shah to own several different companies and multiple offices. In addition to his business achievements, Shah also founded Autism Rocks as a result from one of his sons being diagnosed with the condition.

Working with musicians and singers from around the world to help organize shows for raising funds to go into autism research, Shah continues to show his devotion to bring awareness about the condition to the public. Sanjay Shah is 43 years old and a multimillionaire who has shown his true character and success in his life story.
