Jeff Yastine – Investment Advisor at Banyan Hill

As Editorial Director, Jeff Yastine joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2015 and brings more than 20 years experience as an equity investor and financial journalist at the center of financial world events. He was very successful as a TV news anchor as well. Yastine has recently recommended three companies that could challenge Amazon’s commercial potential and increase investor returns in 2018.

Kroger

Yastine has encouraged investors to buy Kroger Co. shares. The value of Kroger shares has been reduced by about a third in recent months; the shareholders feared that Amazon would damage the supermarket sales.

During the summer of 2017, Yastine spoke harshly about the merger between Kroger and Whole Foods. Several months afterward, he wrote about the visible effects from the deal. Outlining the small drop in pricing compared to the large impact on the actual quality of the products being sold. After describing Amazon’s weaknesses, Yastine emphasized Kroger’s strengths. It manages nearly 3,000 supermarkets in the United States. Stores expect to add automatic payment systems which will help them to achieve the low Amazon overhead.

EBay

Jeff Yastine advises investors to buy eBay shares. As one of the biggest retailers online, shoppers can easily purchase items ranging from new clothes to jewels of antiquity, silver and gold. While eBay already has the potential to outperform Amazon in some segments of the online retail market, it could become a more powerful adversary if an even larger Internet company buys it. Google could fight Amazon more successfully after buying such a major online retailer, and eBay itself could reap the rewards of being connected with such an SEO giant as Google.

Grainger

Finally, Jeff Yastine recommended the purchase of shares in W.W. Grainger. Grainger distributes its products to commercial and industrial customers. Among other things, it offers safety equipment, shelves, janitorial supplies, and office products.

Despite that recent fall in stock prices, Yastine holds firm in the value he has placed upon the company. In the event that an Amazon rival steps up to bat against the powerhouse online retailer they will need a set-up like Grainger to be able to compete on a similar level.

Even if they are left to their own devices, in Jeff Yastine’s humble opinion, the three companies are more than an intelligent choice to invest in due to the the facts that they each generate significant profits, and two of the three companies offer their shareholder’s quite generous dividends.

Ian King Explains the Advantage the Cryptocurrency Market Has Over the Stock Market

Ian King Explains the Advantage the Cryptocurrency Market Has Over the Stock Market
What is a unicorn? Of course, it is a mythical animal. However, in the financial world, a unicorn is a company that is one of a kind in that it reached a value of one billion dollars not long after it started. Of course, nowadays, such companies are no longer so rare. Companies like Uber and Facebook are startups that are unicorns. People are creating startups all over the country. Many young people in Silicon Valley have started startups that soon reached a value of one billion dollars.

There is one problem with these startups, however. When they start, they are usually closed to the average investor out there. They are only open to venture capitalists. Everyone else must wait until the Initial Public Offering, at which point they may have missed out on the bulk of the profits that could have been made if they had the opportunity to invest in the company at the beginning.

That is the beauty of the cryptocurrency market, says Ian King. With cryptocurrencies, anyone can join in when a new company starts up. Initial Coin Offerings are offered before a company starts. This way, people can join the next Bitcoin.

Ian King has coined a new term: Cryptocorn. This refers to cryptocurrencies that have started out not long ago and already have a market cap that is extremely high. That is not so uncommon. Since anyone can join and invest in these companies before they start, the cryptocurrency market is open for everyone to make a lot of money. You do not need to be a venture capital company in order to invest in Initial Coin Offerings. All you need to do is learn about new companies and cryptocurrencies that are starting out.

Ian King says that there are already forty one blockchain companies that have a market cap of one billion dollars. Bitcoin is no longer the one and only player in the cryptocurrency field. Many innovative geniuses are coming up with new and improved blockchain technologies and are creating new cryptocurrencies. There is a lot of profit to be made if you would only look for it.

Ian King has two decades of investing experience. He is a well known financial analyst. He is the cryptocurrency expert at Banyan Hill Publishing.

In four years as ambassador Daniel Taub thinks that he has been very successful in bringing Isreal and the United Kingdom closer together in the diplomatic arena. He is faithful to his Jewish history and even wore a kippah when he first met the Queen after taking the post. One area in his career that he sees the most opportunity is in the Middle East. He believes that cooperation between Isreal and the United Kingdom will help stabilize the region. By working together for the common cause it is possible for all of the countries in the Middle East to come together and build long-lasting bonds for the future.

One specific area that Daniel Taub has had to keep an eye on is the country of Iran.He wants to make sure that Iran adheres to the deal they have made regarding the country’s nuclear capabilities. daniel Taub worries about millions of dollars going to groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. If these groups get a foothold in the country then the whole region could be at risk.

One other area that has taken it’s time to come to fruition is the relationship between Isreal and the United States. Any new initiatives between the two countries should be for the benefit of all involved. He believes that it will take time to get there but the countries will come together. Daniel Taub also believes that Isreal and Palestine can come together as well. Learn more: http://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/the-aliyah-100-list/

It has been four productive years for Daniel Taub.

One of the things he will miss is being able to meet new people on the job. that was the part that was fun.
