RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
URGENT UPDATE:

I recently went to all cash and US "Junk" or low numismatic value high silver value (Pre 1964 90% Silver USA Coins) and a nice collection of proof and mint state sets. Idea is to be in cash to take advantage of special opps when the real SHTF - a really big fan that spreads the you know what all over the place.

Greece has done it - it has shuttered its banks and told its citizens to live on $67 a day from ATMs... I am astounded that Greek people actually still keep their cash in Greecian Banks and have not hoarded bug out bag stashes of Euros, Swiss Francs and GBP and even Dollars at home buried in plastic cash stash containers.

Yes, the clock’s ticking louder, louder, warns the Economist, “only a matter of time before the next recession strikes.” Unfortunately, the “rich world is not ready.” America’s not prepared. You are not ready.

Get it? America’s 95 million investors are at huge risk. Remember the $10 trillion losses in the crash and recession of 2007-2009? The $8 trillion lost after the dot-com technology crash and recession of 2000-2003? This is the third big recession of the century. Yes, America will lose trillions again.

Especially with dead-ahead predictions like Mark Cook’s 4,000-point Dow correction. And Jeremy Grantham’s warning of a 50% crash around election time, with negative stock returns through the first term of the next president, beyond 2020. Starting soon.

Why is America so vulnerable when the next recession hits? Simple: The Fed’s cheap-money giveaway is killing America. When the downturn, correction, crash hits, it will compare to the 2008 crash. The Economist warns: “the world will be in a rotten position to do much about it. Rarely have so many large economies been so ill-equipped to manage a recession,” whatever the trigger.

And;

RMM's MS or Monetary Sovereignty blog recession countdown charts at the bottom of every blog post
http://mythfighter.com/2015/02/02/canada...t-the-u-s/

The charts at the bottom show that the Recession clock is about to strike and a crash (above) is likely 50% or greater...

And;

Putins new Hiroshima/Nagasaki strategy revisted - that local tactical nukes can de-escalate a regional conflict by forcing instant and unconditional surrender (of Ukraine, Belorus, Uzbekistan, Dagestan, Afghanistan, Georgia etc...)

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/42...timidation

Putin has taken a page from Nazi Germany’s playbook of the 1930s and early 1940s. He claims responsibility for ethnic Russian minorities in neighboring countries. We saw this gambit in Russia’s war against Georgia in 2008, in the military occupation of Crimea in 2014, and in its ongoing military operations in Eastern Ukraine. “Ethnic cleansing” and “Russification” of key areas have followed some of these military operations. But Putin has what Hitler lacked: nuclear weapons. With these, he attempts to pressure neighboring states to timidly accept Moscow’s desires, including the redrawing of European borders and “Russification.” Russia now wields nuclear weapons and threats not only to protect its territory but also to intimidate and coerce its neighbors into submission.

Moscow’s crude nuclear threats to its neighbors, including American allies, vividly demonstrate its aggressive nuclear strategy. Those threats are intended to stoke such fear in the U.S. and its allies that all will hesitate to respond strongly to Russian military aggression. For Putin, the fruits of this grand strategy include approval ratings within Russia that are the envy of the world: 89 percent. In short, Russia’s strategy is now one of nuclear coercion, not stable mutual deterrence. How far Putin will push this strategy remains an open question, but recent history does not suggest a comforting answer. As Secretary of Defense Ash Carter observed in a speech to American allies this month: “Moscow’s nuclear sabre-rattling raises questions about Russia’s commitment to strategic stability and causes us . . . to wonder whether . . . they share the profound caution . . . that world leaders in the nuclear age have shown over decades to the brandishing of nuclear weapons.” Precisely so, which is why Russia’s nuclear policies are now so dangerous.

Claims that Russia, or any rational country, could use nuclear weapons and strategy in this manner — that they are not merely Cold War relics — continue to be dismissed in most Western quarters as the musings of Cold Warriors. The dangerous reality, however, has been obvious for several years. As the U.S. National Intelligence Council observed in 2012: Nuclear ambitions in the U.S. and Russia over the last 20 years have evolved in opposite directions. Reducing the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. security strategy is a U.S. objective, while Russia is pursuing new concepts and capabilities for expanding the role of nuclear weapons in its security strategy. The evidence since 2012 is that Putin’s nuclear moves are becoming even more dangerous, including a reported doctrinal innovation that ironically envisions Russia’s first use of nuclear weapons as a form of nuclear “de-escalation” — that is, if Russia uses nuclear weapons in a local conflict, opponents will cease resistance, thus de-escalating the crisis. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work rightfully stated this month in open testimony before Congress that with this doctrinal innovation, Russia “is literally playing with fire.” These are not Cold War musings; they are a description of contemporary reality.

RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
So point is to do research now and jump on the favorite 1,000+ baggers after the next crash and live frugally until able to cash in on some of the next Ubers Airbnbs and Pricelines etc.

To quote Peter Lynch of Fidelity fame - a 2, 3 or 4 bagger is nice - a ten bagger is great - but 100 baggers can change your investing life. So imagine what a few 1,000 to 5,000 baggers can do for you...

This is real and happens with many private stock market deals in the USA so now that we can invest in these private opps lets get educated and put our heads together.

We are about to live through interesting times ("May you live through interesting times" being an ancient Chinese curse).

RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
Are you kidding? Trolling? Sorry if I hurt your feelings brother but those type of hits just are not common and I think you are misleading people by speaking about them as if they are common. Anybody with much investment experience knows that they are not common.

Long term professional investors/speculators only talk about hitting a couple 100 baggers over the course of their entire lives.... 1,000-,5000 baggers? It just isnt that common. Keep mentioning UBER all you want.

Seems a bit ridiculous to call me a troll because I tossed some reality into this thread rather than dreams.

Look I am sharing my take aways on a course developed by the founders of CrowdAbility Crowd Funding to take advantage of the SEC Jobs Act regulations that they have been dragging their feet on - in the mean time there are about a dozen give or take sites that are up and operating to allow people who do not meet the old SEC criteria of qualified investors - I also was employee number 75 in a Company that had the last great multibillion IPO on the Tech beltway around Boston Rt 128 and saw first hand the many ways Goldman Saks and their co underwriters and the IPO process actually screwed employees and their friends and family. If you had read the thread and taken their introductory web seminar you would see that there have been 100's of these type opps over the past decade and that the market is opening up no matter the Wall Street mega bank underwriters doing all they can to get the SEC to drag their feet - radically reducing the amount of reasonably priced capital for new companies to grow and create jobs in the USA - last I checked small businesses account for over 80% of all USA jobs and capital formation has been a big problem for a long time.

So I am contributing my own money and time to grow a NON Troll thread to learn the latest techniques and investment strategies to earn far more on your money than a bank CD or index fund.

If you had read my thread you would know I stated:

The idea with the CROWDability course is not to go balls deep into any one early private stock market deal but to follow a discipline that has proven to show consistent risk managed returns of 27% annually with an occasional home run or grand slam <insert your own favorite sports analogy here> - I plan on doing one chapter or module every couple days to let the new info sink in and then post the key info and takeaways to share here and put together our own RVF Brain Trust to analyze new deals as they come up on the various sonar and radar screens.


In my not so humble opinion JayDublin you are shiteing all over my thread and you are in fact a CLASSIC knee jerk RVF Investments TROLL.

RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
This weeks email alert from CrowdAbility:

Breaking: 4,726 Colleges Set to Close
By: Wayne Mulligan

The United States has 4,726 colleges and universities.

To attend these institutions, students spend nearly $600 billion per year—that’s $393 billion for tuition, and $196 billion on expenses like travel and housing.

But a fascinating new technology has recently emerged, and it’s raising the possibility that all of those institutions—and even the education business as we know it—are at risk of being shut down for good.

In the next few minutes, we’ll tell you the details of this technology...

And more importantly, we’ll show you how to set yourself up to profit from it.

What’s a Diploma Worth?

It might sound scary, even unthinkable, that our nation’s top colleges could be shuttered—but actually, it could turn out to be a good thing.

You see, higher education in the U.S. is broken.

Over the past 30 years, for example, the cost to attend college has risen by more than 538%. Even when inflation is taken into account, it’s 4.5 times more expensive to go to college today than it was back in 1985.

Even more shocking is that, despite surging education costs, unless a college grad is in a specialized field like computer programming, many are finding that the value of their diploma is going down.

Sure, college graduates can earn more than those without a degree—but there’s a financial cost to that:

According to The Institute for College Access and Success, 70% of students graduate with an average loan balance of $28,400.

And nationwide, student loan debt now sits at a staggering $1.2 trillion.

To put that in perspective, $1.2 trillion is nearly 50% higher than all the outstanding auto-loan debt, and it’s nearly double our nation’s credit card debt.

Sadly, today’s college graduates are being saddled with an almost unbearable burden.

Where Does The Money Go?

This begs the question of why it costs so much to attend college. Here’s how the average university budget breaks down:

13% of tuition fees are earmarked for "research"...

A big chunk is then allocated for things like sports, sabbaticals for teachers, and maintenance for all of the pretty buildings on campus...

And a bigger chunk gets allocated to something known as "student services and institutional support."

What exactly are student services?

Well, these include facilities like libraries and labs...

But they also include more dubious services—like The University of Houston’s 50-foot rock-climbing wall, or Washington State University’s "jumbo Jacuzzi."

Shockingly, just 30% of tuition fees go towards actual "instruction."

And since higher education operates like a monopoly, there’s zero incentive for colleges to cut costs and pass those savings on to students.

Instead, these institutions continue to overspend and overcharge students for services that may or may not contribute to their education.

But like many monopolies that came before it, this one too shall crumble—

And we predict that a recent innovation from the heart of Silicon Valley will be the catalyst for its downfall...

What’s “Real” Education?

I attended Columbia University in New York City.

I appreciated its beautiful campus and stately buildings—but that’s not why I was there.

I was there to learn. I was there to prepare myself for the future.

Based on the shocking number of people getting their degrees online nowadays (nearly a quarter of a million students, for example, are currently enrolled in University of Phoenix, a higher education institution that specializes in online programs), it appears that many people feel the same way.

But how could the non-essential components of college be scaled back even further, while still maintaining the types of interaction that make college so valuable?

One of Silicon Valley’s most successful entrepreneurs thinks he has the answer.

He’s betting billions of dollars on a new technology—a technology that could one day make a college diploma available to all.

Oculus

The entrepreneur I’m talking about is Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook.

Just over a year ago, Zuckerberg made one of the biggest bets of his career:

He paid $2 billion to acquire a virtual reality company called Oculus.

Simply put, Oculus produces a pair of high-tech goggles that, when worn, make the user feel as if they just stepped into another world.

The experience is extremely realistic. Take a look at this video to see the reaction of a man “riding on a roller coaster” with his Oculus headset.

"Virtual Education"

While many speculate that Facebook and others will use virtual reality for entertainment purposes like gaming and movies, we predict the technology will be used for a much more practical purpose:

To disrupt the education system in this country.

Imagine what it would be like to slip on a pair of glasses… and be instantly transported into a classroom full of students.

In this “virtual classroom,” you could see and hear an Ivy League professor lecturing on the fall of the Roman Empire, or the history of Chinese art.

You could converse with other students and compare notes—or you could play games and even “flirt” with them.

In other words, you could do many of the same things students do on today’s college campuses—but you could do it from wherever you are, at a fraction of the cost.

In a system where only 30% of student tuition goes toward “instruction,” by eliminating their physical elements, universities could cut costs by 70%—and pass those savings along to the student.

So, instead of students paying an average of $13,564 per year to attend a 4-year public college, it would now cost them closer to $4,000.

How To Profit From This Trend

To be clear, we don’t believe technologies like virtual reality will cause every college or university to shut its doors...

But we do believe it will force them to rethink their cost structure.

And when that happens, students may have the chance to receive a diploma from an elite school—without incurring life-altering debt.

The thing is, ample opportunities are already arising for you to profit from this disruption:

For starters, you could invest in Facebook and its Oculus headset.

Or you could invest in Google—it, too, has virtual reality aspirations with its new device, “Cardboard.”

But if you’re a longtime reader, you know that we have a different perspective on how to profit from disruptions like this:

Why invest in 800-pound gorillas like Google, where the major profits have already been made?

Instead, you should consider investing in the early-stage companies like Oculus that can change the world—and bring their early investors life-changing profits.

So in the coming weeks and months, we’ll introduce you to a series of early-stage investment ideas focusing on the virtual reality megatrend...

These are groundbreaking companies on the forefront of innovation in this space.

Stay tuned.

RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
Since this is my 500th RVF post might as well make it in my own thread...

Tuesday, July 28th 2015 Noon NYC time:

Crude Oil 47.74 +0.74% Gold 1,093.90 -0.23% EUR/USD 1.1049 Copper 2.40 +2.02% Silver 14.64 +0.21%

Wasn't the Euro around $1.40 a year or so ago?

But things still not rosy in US Real Estate even with record low mortgage rates.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. homeownership dropped to a record low in the second quarter as more Americans opted to rent, data showed on Tuesday.

The seasonally adjusted home ownership rate fell to 63.5 percent, the lowest since the government started tracking the series, the Commerce Department said. The rate, which peaked at 69.4 percent in 2004, was 63.8 percent in the first quarter.

The residential rental vacancy rate fell to 6.8 percent, the lowest level since 1985, from 7.1 percent in the first quarter.
###
China markets continue to plunge and prices of commodities lower and flight to safety to US large Cap dividend stocks and the Dollar - US Dollar appears to be the strongest globally at this point in time...

Bond yields outside of USA are really low - Germany only 50 Basis points whereas USA 10 year near 2 pts.

Lower energy costs will hurt Oil and Drilling but should boost most of the other US industries.

I am looking at a friends trading methodologies who is a retired hedge fund owner and now just trades for his own account and likes to discuss his methodologies and current strategies as a brain exercise.

Time for a 500th RVF post Cigar and Scotch chaser...

Keep her (balls) Deep ... Diver out.

RE: Heads up re The Private Stock Market
Today's Crowdability email Alert:

I am going to download and try the Fishidy app - sort of waze to where the fish are actually biting with GPS - would save a lot of wasted gas and time trolling or going to dry spots versus hot spots plus a social network aspect... Honestly if the app worked i would be comfortable putting in one or two grand but $10K I would have to know how fast they are ramping up and exactly how many free versus premium users - I love fishing but will fishidy be as popular as UBER?

Still could be some nice upside if the app is as good as advertised - Freemium includes free and premium services - anyone else gives it a try let me know if you like it or not.
