Market America, founded in 1992, is changing the way we shop and as a result, they are building our economy’s future. Market America has a simple mission. They want to give entrepreneurs a platform in which they can find success and at the same time, give consumers from around the world the best shopping experience possible. How do they plan to complete these tasks? The answer is technology and people power.
The entrepreneurs associated with Market America are called Unfranchised Owners or UFOs. The UFO uses what is referred to as one to one marketing to make a sale. Most contacts are made through social media platforms. It is up to the UFO to make relationships with consumers. These relationships are directly responsible for enabling a UFO to grow their business.
Today we shop more than ever with our eyes and this is what Market America banks on. We see celebrities wearing a new outfit on Instagram and we all have to have it. We watch a mop demonstration on Facebook and we need to purchase that mop because ours does not clean that well. One to one marketing takes this a step further when we form a relationship with someone who takes the time to get to know us. They understand the products that we need or desire.
Market America does have their own website called SHOP.com. The website is considered one of the largest global online retailers. Their site has over 35 million different products and services available to consumers. The products range from exclusive brands to products from top retailers based around the world.
Their success is based on social media shopping and one to one marketing. Not only are they changing the way we shop, but they are changing the way we earn our money. UFOs, themselves, have earned over 2 billion dollars in commissions and retail profits. That is something worth believing in.
Sahm Adrangi is one of the most renowned investors in the world today and currently leads at Kerrisdale Capital, which is a private investment firm that invests in all sorts of different projects and industries. For more than a decade now, Sahm Adrangi has been leading the investment field with his excellent insight. As of late, Sahm and Kerrisdale Capital have been focusing extra on the blockchain technologies that are coming out and their overall influence on the markets of the world.
In recent news, Kerrisdale released reports and gave comments on various companies that have experienced huge growth through this new technology. One of the recent company’s under Kerrisdale’s fire is Eastman Kodak, known for this photography products and accessories. In the past, Kodak was a giant in the industry, and as of recently, their stock prices rose roughly 190 percent after using this technology in their own digital currency.
While many investors initially wanted to buy into these Kodak Stocks, Sahm Adrangi has issued a caution to all investors to be cautious before dealing with Kodak. Kodak’s stocks could simply be highly overvalued currently, which would be a big mistake for investors thinking its an opportunity. Sahm believes this to be true because Kodak’s other subsidiaries are also overvalued and are hardly as functional as Eastman Kodak. While there may be some actual value, the company is not using their blockchain technologies in a way that is going to provide returns that are helpful in the end.
Another problem that Sahm Adrangi sees with Kodak is that the developer of the technology they are using has a highly mixed background. This means they could end up with a product that doesn’t perform so well against the competitors. While there is no hard evidence that the company has done anything illegal, the board members have made some very concerning moved according to Kerrisdale, such as gaining access to restricted stock just a day before the company’s cryptocurrency announcement.
Equities First Holdings has subsidiaries that are all around the world, and they all serve different purposes. There are some people who need loans in their home countries, and they will go to the UK or Australia. There are a lot of people who want to get their loans right now, and they are trying to see what they can do to get the cheapest loans.
This company will offer people asset management if they want it, and they have made sure to move into new markets that they think can be the most helpful. The person who wants to see what they can get out of this company can go into one of their offices, and they can get their loans and financing for much less money.
Talos Energy and Premier Oil are among the international oil & gas firms revamping the Mexico’s oil and gas industry. The sector which has been under the monopoly of Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) for over 80 years began deteriorating from 2007. In 2013, the country’s leadership instituted a constitutional amendment, energy reform, which was signed into law eight months later. The bill allowed foreign firms back into the Mexico’s oil & gas industry.
This is the first non-Pemex oil well since 1938 when Mexico nationalized oil industry. The well is located in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico specifically the Sureste Basin off the state of Tabasco, and it is a joint venture of Premier Oil, Talos Energy, and Mexico Sierra Oil & Gas Company.
In May, Premier Oil (an independent UK oil and gas company) issued a statement regarding the Zama Well. According to Premier, drilling of the Zama Well would commence on May 21, 2017, and reach completion after 90 days. Premier suggested that the well holds over 500 million barrels of crude oil. It would cost Premier over $16 million to fund its 25% stake in the venture.
The announcement of the Zama-1 Well drew the attention of pundits from all over the globe. Elaine Reynolds of Edison Investment Research suggested that owing to the structure of the rocks around the Zama Well; the project had “a high geological chance of success.” Charlie Sharp of Canaccord Genuity noted that the success or lack of it thereof of the Zama Well had huge implications on the Mexico’s oil sector.
