Le Defile L’ Oreal helps the fashion industry to refocus its efforts and energy on the new fashion designs that are being created. The looks that are presented at this show will eventually become the future trends of clothing and style for the masses. Nicolar Kraft is aware of this truth.

The showbiz professional wanted to know more about the ingredients, and this founded the relationship the couple had. Ryan believes that he fell in love with the woman he had met and her love for making great food. The couple has been together since then, although they have had their share of issues when dating.

An industry leader when it comes to showing readers how to invest profitably safely and more wisely, Banyan-Hill’s roster of experts have all earned their stripes in the investment field many times over, and no less can be said about Matt Badiali.

Early on, Matt Badiali worked his way from a Bachelors in Geological and Earth Sciences/Geosciences degree, to a Masters Geology/Earth Science degree. While actively pursuing his Ph.D in Sedimentary Geology, Badiali’s discernment in the scientific sector caught the attention of an industry leader, who approached him with the opportunity to travel and investigate various energy companies, to assess investment opportunities in natural resources, metals and energy.

Like a duck to water, Matt Badiali hopped aboard the investment train. He’s been using his science-fueled smarts to make investors bolder and better at it ever since. Recently, Matt Badiali made the bold assertion that one of the most undervalued metals, platinum, was slated to make a giant comeback.

Trend-watchers have been less than enthused about some metal activity lately, in part due to trade-war threats involving China, China being a huge consumer of raw metal ores. Though platinum is currently at a record low, demand for the metal is outstripping supply, which is a good sign for a boomerang back up in value. Additional factors that make platinum worthy of investors’ scrutiny include the fact that it’s more rare than gold, besides being an expensive metal to produce, making it likely that production will eventually slow and cause a greater need.

Besides its difficult to procure and produce, platinum has uses across the board in numerous industries, adding to its luster as an investment option. Badiali suggests metal investors looking to expand into platinum check out Sibanye-Stillwater, a responsible mining company that is also a major supplier to industrial manufacturers.

The supply and demand factors that make platinum a Matt Badiali pick to go for in 2018 should not be ignored. The former Duke University, Geology professor and Banyan Hill publishing pundit has spoken.

However, there were some agreements that the two new co-owners had to agree. After completing the deal in 2014, they had to conform to the fans plea not to alter the club’s location.

Marc and Wes agreed to the plea and even promised to construct a new Arena that was going to accommodate the multitudes of spectators.

Matt Badiali has for a long time made accurate predictions for investors in the natural resource industry. He currently serves as the chief resource investment expert for Banyan Hill Publishing. He is the brain behind the Real Wealth Strategist where he shares a lot of his insight on investment opportunities. He recently took time to comment on the precious metal, silver.

The price of silver had taken a hit owing to fear in investment circles. Its slow growth rate was a point of concern for many market players. Matt Badiali however believes that the time has come for the story to change. Silver currently holds a lot of promise for investors according to the natural resource expert.

The price of silver recently hit a two-year low and is not very far from its 2015 low. As of September 4th, the precious metal’s stock was retailing at $14.15. The price is a few cents away from the prices during the 2009 Great Recession. Matt Badiali was keen to point out that the situation is not unique to silver as other precious metals were not doing well either.

The advent of cryptocurrencies has taken most of the blame for this steady decline. A lot of investors pumped money into the alternative haven that eventually caused other metal prices to decline. Matt Badiali however insisted that the decline was in respect to dollar terms.

The demand for silver was still high especially in industry circles. Green technology, electric cars as well as solar technology industries need a large supply of silver to remain afloat and achieve their targets. Silver had gotten to an emotional extreme making it a great area of speculation. This claim was further supported by the silver-to-gold ratio that has grown to a ten-year high.

Matt Badiali indicated that every time silver reached an extreme in the past, its prices skyrocketed. The end result was great gains of up to 110% for the prudent investors. As the signs pointed towards this, he believed that it was only a matter of time before the market trend changed.

After spending a huge chunk of his career investigating and monitoring natural resources, he has developed a knack for pointing out ‘gold mines’ in the industry. Investors who pay attention to what he says have reaped big.

Guilherme Paulus has had an exceptional and enviable career. It started with him having his degree in Business Administration and joining Casa Faro Turismo in 1971. While working, his experience with a small group of French tourists would create a spark that Guilherme would turn into a raging fire. The French tourists were bored with not knowing what to do, Guilherme would step in and suggest a way to spend their vacation. His service was so well received that at the time of leaving, the tourists had already booked their next trip with him. View Guilherme Paulus profile at Forbes.

This ignited the drive in him which would end up with him owning what is now the largest tour operator in Latin America – CVC. Founded in 1972, Guilherme Paulus started CVC with a partner, a Brazilian politician who would eventually take his leave from the partnership.


Guilherme, alone at the helm of CVC would take the predicament as an opportunity and spend the next forty years taking CVC to unimaginable highs.

In 2009, Guilherme would part with 63.6% of CVC in a sale to global private equity company – Carlyle Group. The sale would net Guilherme Paulus $420 million, yet allow him to stay on as the chairman of CVC. He would demonstrate his ability to turn any situation into a positive when he took control of struggling aviator – WebJet, which only had a fleet size of one aeroplane and turned it into the 3rd largest domestic aviation company in Brazil, with a fleet size of 20 aeroplanes at the time of its sale to Gol.

His mind has always been active, in spite of CVC’s incredible growth, Guilherme Paulus continued to look into what his beloved country required as the times changed. He noticed how the tourism sector in Brazil needed a boost and founded the GJP Group of Hotels and Resorts which now owns sought after tourist spots across the nation and employs upwards of 2,000 people. With his involvement in the tourism sector, he quickly realized that Brazil was changing, and it’s people were demanding a higher standard of living. It was no longer a case of necessities. This realization made GJP start the construction wing of the company, aimed at building condominiums and villas, something that was being demanded by the people of his country.

His career has seen him win countless awards and honors, including a place in the Brazilian Board of Tourism, an arm of the government to which he was invited by the President, recognizing that Guilherme Paulus was the perfect expert on tourism.

Vinod Gupta is the kind of person who, when you learn of all of his accomplishments, how he achieved them and their magnitude of change for so many, you want to ask, ‘Do you do architecture..?

In essence, you can exhale with Vinod on the job.

Kerrisdale Capital and their CIO Sahm Adrangi have recently issued a very negative report on the Kodak Eastman Company and their two announced products KodakOne and KodakCoin. This does not fair well for the company that has been struggling considerably for the last several years. If Sahm Adrangi, who has a long history of successfully shorting the stocks of companies that he believes are engaging in poor business practices or outright fraudulent, is correct, Kodak Eastman knows that their new products are doomed for failure.

With Kodak constantly looming around the edges of bankruptcy, it’s understandable why so many people believe that they are making their final efforts to keep bankruptcy at bay for just a little longer at the expense of their investors. Cryptocurrency has been getting a lot of attention in both the media and the investment world as of late and KodakCoin appears to be trying to join the craze to make a quick buck. If Sahm Adrangi is correct, their new products KodakOne and KodakCoin will not only fail but probably never even reach their final stages of development due to considerable problems technically and legally.

Sahm Adrangi graduated from Yale University in 2003 and is the founder and chief executive officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management. Sahm Adrangi is known for publishing his research on companies and arranging short sales of stocks. He has been able to predict the failures of several different companies and has made considerable amounts of money by short selling these companies’ stocks. He recently made the news for the successful short sales of 2 different pharmaceutical companies that were developing drugs with little to no positive effects for the patients that would be taking them. He published his research on these companies and their medications while they were still in the research phase.

Sahm Adrangi has made a fortune for himself and his investors by making these predictions. With news organizations like CNBC reporting on his negative report on Kodak, it seems like it may only be time before the inevitable happens and Kodak claims bankruptcy.
