The Virgin Trains brand is one of the best known in Europe and has an affiliation with the luxury airline bearing the same branding. Wes Edens is the business brain behind the launch of what was originally known as Brightline Rail Services but has recently been rebranded to provide a sense of global recognition based on the success of the Virgin brand throughout the world. As with most ventures undertaken by Wes Edens, the focus is not solely on profits but also on making a positive impact on the planet.
Looking at the traffic problems facing the people of Florida inspired Wes Edens to seek out ways to change the way travel is completed in the Sunshine State. Edens is a believer in new energy and travel options designed to create a more energy efficient future for the planet. Snarled traffic has been a growing problem for residents and visitors to Florida for decades and remains a problem government officials are not willing to handle. After seeing a journey from Miami to Fort Lauderdale take upwards of two hours when the journey should take around 45 minutes, Wes Edens decided to act.
Wes Edens has already received approval for Federal funding to expand the services offered in Florida from the existing Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach line to include Orlando. Edens has never been an investor willing to curb his enthusiasm and dreams, which is why he has also sought to find the next area in need of a Virgin Trains USA service. XpressWest is a growing West Coast company looking to link Las Vegas and Southern California by rail which was purchased by Virgin Trains USA towards the end of 2018.
Matt Badiali started his career as a scientist, but later in the year 2014, joined the finance industry. He established Real Wealth Strategist, his first newsletter in May 2017. The Matt’s newsletter has gained many readers who benefit from numerous natural resource stock recommendations and advisory contained in the publication. Matt has incorporated his vast Geology and Science knowledge into analyzing the existing oil markets.
According to Matt Badiali, the variations in the geopolitical environment eventually impact the oil prices across the world. Political tensions disrupt the exportation of oil products, a factor that makes the cost of locally made crude plummets to increase. The world has experienced a stable and affordable oil production since 2014. However, Badiali believes that there exist some factors which will eventually send the prices skyrocketing. Investors who are willing to enter into the oil market could finally enjoy significant gains if some of the factors become a reality.
Competitive future oil contracts
The stability of the United States dollar has enabled it to dominate the energy since 1944. Additionally, all major oil exporting nations sell their contracts in U.S dollars. As per Matt Badiali, a bigger percentage of countries are in support of the status quo of the U.S dollar, except for China which is about to release a new exchange, whereby future contracts will be Yuan-denominated. The China exchange, according to the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, will give market participants a platform to buy and sell oil contracts. Matt recommends that investors willing to prosper in the recent oil markets should closely monitor China’s new exchange.
The severe financial crisis has consumed and destroyed Venezuela’s economy in all sectors. Inflation levels have increased, thus making foreign investors to pull out of Venezuela. Oil production market in Venezuela has also been surprised by the prevailing economic woes. Oil production levels have significantly reduced from 3 million barrels per day in 1997 to 1.4 million barrels per day. Production of oil could fall even lower if the crisis in Venezuela continues. Matt Badiali is encouraging investors to monitor the crisis in the nation carefully. Venezuela continues to export the small amount of oil that they produce. Investors should closely monitor the rise in prices of oil as oil exports of Venezuela reduce.
The Daily Forex Report recently published an article detailing the importance of information on the stock market and making trades, specifically in the cryptocurrency market, in the article “Paul Mampilly has Struck Gold Again.” The article was written by Caleb Garvin to explain the recent bubble in cryptocurrency and how it is poised to burst.
According to the financial analyst and investment guru, Paul Mampilly, cryptocurrency is an investment bubble that is ready to burst because it has become the center of attention in popular culture. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have driven large amounts of public interest, however, this might be an indicator that the bubble is getting ready to burst. The digital form of currency is not controlled by banks or the government and exists completely online. Bitcoin was made in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto who wanted to create an electronic exchange system for large tech companies.
However, Mampilly points out that the value of Bitcoin is created based on the demand for it and it is dependent entirely on what people believe it is worth. This has created an intense growth period for the cryptocurrency, but it is often unsustainable. Paul Mampilly believes that investors should do a great deal of research prior to investing in any stock, let alone one as volatile as cryptocurrency. Mampilly revealed that because publications kept ranting about how the price of the cryptocurrency continued to rise, people believed it and continued to buy it. However, when the bubble simply could not sustain itself, investors recognized that they could not earn the same gains.
Paul Mampilly graduated from Montclair State University with his BBA in Finance and Accounting. After completing his BBA, he continued to study business at the Fordham Gabelli School of Business. Once he completed his education he went to work on Wall Street, working with large companies like the Deutsche Asset Management, ING Funds, and Bankers Trust Company. He became the Senior Portfolio Manager at Kinetics Asset Management where he grew the hedge funds from $5 billion to $25 billion.
However, Paul Mampilly soon recognized that he wanted to help the average American make the same kind of gains in their investments. He started working with Banyan Hill Publishing to create Profits Unlimited.
The founder of Sharper Capital, Shervin Pishevar, has been expressing his views on several aspects concerning the current status of the economy and technology in the United States. He is a highly opinioned person who has knowledge and experience on what he says. This is because he is a shrewd investor has experienced transformation in both technological and financial fields through hands-on experience. In his 21-hours twitter extravaganza, the Uber investor has highlighted some detailed information which seems to be backed from verifiable data.
In one of hisTwitter messages, Shervin Pishevar, notes of the looming financial crisis that is likely to face the United States financial industry and the stock market at large. This is not a point to ignore as serious turbulent issues have been experienced over the last and beginning of this year which is a warning of things to come. Surprisingly, the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop continues to highlight that turbulent in the stock market will continue for several months where people will lose their investments in the process. According to the venture capitalist, the New York Securities Exchange market will drop by 6,000 points, which is large enough to cause havoc in the industry.
Shervin Pishevar notes that one of the main causes of the looming financial crisis in the country is the tax giveaways. This is the process through which the government is giving away taxesto various organizations to encourage them to invest. This strategy seems good, but it could have severe issues in the financial future of the country. There is also a large number of credit accounts which have significant discrepancies. This means that there is no accurate information about the credit accounts and the exact details about them.
Lastly, Shervin Pishevar records that most of the assets in the United States are overvalued, which makes investors to use a lot of money purchasing these assets only for them to realize that such investments do not have a return on investment or their payback period is much high. Moreover, the interest rates on loans charged by the banks and other lending institutions are very high as compared to rates paid on deposit and government bonds.
