Billionaire Investor George Soros Is Gold Mining Instead Of Stock Hunting

George Soros, the Hungarian-born refugee that broke the Bank of England more than 20 years ago, is considered one of the smartest investors in the world. Soros is worth more than $24 billion, and he earned all that money betting on stocks and other commodities. The Soros hedge fund has made an exceptional amount of money for the limited partners over the years, but George Soros bought most of those partners out a few years ago, and now the fund is only family money. George is not afraid to invest that money in risky assets that other investors won’t touch, but his new investment in a gold mining company is producing a new gold rush. Investors are running into the gold market, and the price of gold has jumped more than 2 percent in the first quarter of 2016.

Barrick Gold is one of the world’s largest precious metal miners, and the Soros hedge fund now owns a serious amount of shares shares of that stock. George Soros decided to sell more than 37 percent of other stock holdings in order to invest in gold. The price of Barrick Gold’s stock has risen by 44 percent since Soros made that investment. But gold is not the only investment that Soros has in his pocket, according to Bloomberg.com. Soros invested in Argentina a few years ago after meeting with former President Cristina de Kirchner, and his investment in debt bonds have produced some impressive returns. The current president of Argentina, Mauricio Marci, made a deal with the hedge funds that de Kirchner burned when she defaulted on more than $100 billion worth of bonds several years ago. After that deal was sealed, Argentina was allowed to offer more than $65.5 billion in bonds to investors around the world. Soros was one of the first investors in line to buy the new bonds.

Billionaire Investor George Soros Sees Economic Trouble Ahead

Some investment experts say George Soros doesn’t always win, but he wins more than he loses and that’s the mark of an investment genius. Soros made a billion dollars in February 2013, when he bet the Japanese yen would have to be devalued after new Prime Minister Abe announced a stimulus package that put an unusual burden on the Bank of Japan. Soros is betting that his fund is going to make even more money when the Chinese are forced to devalue their currency because of the bad loans that the government and the banks are supporting through capital reserves.

The amount of money that Soros stands to make over the next 18 months is an incredible amount. But Soros bets big, and when he wins, he wins big. That’s the mark of a true gambler that has a Midas touch.

George Soros Calls for Support for Ukraine

George Soros has made quite a few passionate pleas for international support for the future of Ukraine. Since Ukraine began its massive reformation in 2014, a new country with the potential for stable economic growth and more mainstream political parties has evolved. Although George Soros Ukraine concedes that the European Union (EU) is currently dealing with a multitude of political and economic crises, including Greece’s debt and the migration situation, he reminds us that supporting Ukraine should remain a top priority for the EU.

In a period of relative uncertainty with Ukraine still licking its wounds from fending off Russian forces, Soros sees reason for hope in Ukraine’s situation. He urges leaders of the EU to consider Ukraine as an agent for unification among EU member countries. At a time when support for European unification has been waning, the need for collective support of Ukraine’s independence and prosperity could be a welcome opportunity to show how effective the EU could be when the member countries work together.

George Soros Ukraine calls attention to one of the primary reasons to support independence and stability for Ukraine, which involves keeping Russian aggression in check, especially while Putin is still in power. According to Soros, there is absolutely no debate that Russia must be watched closely. The best way to prevent Russia from overstepping its bounds against sovereign nations in the EU is to make sure that its neighbors are able to take a stand against Russian aggression. In short, Soros’ view is that a strong Ukraine will inevitably lead to a stronger Europe.

George Soros – The New York Times

In addition to making sure that Ukraine is able to physically defend itself from Russia, Soros is adamant that European countries should be providing enough financial support so that Ukraine can continue its political and economic reforms. As the country continues to move away from its corrupt and bureaucratic systems, Soros says that the EU should make funds available so that Ukraine is able to stand as a beacon of democracy in that region of the world. Soros’ theory is that if the Ukrainian people are able to enjoy and stand behind widespread democratic reform, then perhaps the same types of policies will catch on in Russia. Given the proximity of Ukraine and Russia, it follows that a democratic reform in Ukraine could spill right over into Russia. This could be one of the biggest steps forward in keeping Putin in check for the rest of the world. Soros implores the EU to consider the long list of benefits that could come from political and economic stability in that area of the world. Surely, according to Soros, the price tag on that is worth more than the few billions that the EU has provided thus far in financial support to Ukraine.

In using his international experience and prominent position to plead for assistance for Ukraine, Soros once again demonstrates his commitment to seeing democracy and freedom spread throughout the world. He hopes that his words of wisdom do not fall on deaf ears of European leaders.

WEN For Glossy, Healthy Shine

When looking for a product that streamlines the beauty routine allowing more time in the morning for sipping a delicious latte, who would say no? When it comes down to trusting this product to impart a beautiful shine and leave the locks in perfect condition, some proof is required to really seal the deal.
Emily McClure, a beauty writer and hair stylist, decided to give us a sneak peek on how the hair product worked for her fine strands. http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened. Emily tried WEN by Chaz Dean for a week and shared her updates with the beauty community to show what really happened. Though WEN comes in various formulations, Emily decided to try the ultra moisturizing formulation called Sephora Fig. Because WEN Fig formulation worked wonders for her fine hair, with more to spare, it is definitely recommended for all hair types, especially color treated, bleached out, or thick and course dry hair that needs the extra moisture.

Emily was able to eliminate all the extra processes in her morning hair care routine including the shampoo, conditioner, and styling routine. She was able to get the benefits of a cleanse, condition and styling agent with one simple cleansing process in the shower. Right off the bat she could tell Wen was doing something different for her hair because her hair felt thicker in her hands, it did not feel stripped, even during the shampoo. After the blow dry when high gloss shine was revealed she was convinced that her hair was in a healthier condition than it was with a stripping shampoo.
