Talos Energy is a bold oil company that has been known to take great risks despite the challenges the industry faces. Tim Duncan who founded the company in 2012 has led Talos to success with his determination to conduct mergers and acquisitions.
Duncan’s journey to the energy industry can be traced back to his father, who was also in the industry. However, it is in 1996 that Tim Duncan made his entry into the industry under the Zilkha Energy Company. Later in 1997, the company changed ownership for $1.2 billion. Duncan never gave up on the industry. He participated in the launch of Gryphon Exploration in 2000, and in 2006 he became a cofounder to the Phoenix Exploration company. Both companies were a success. Woodside Petroleum acquired Gryphon and Phoenix Exploration was sold to Apache Corp. in 2011.
Apollo and River stone played a vital role in the establishment of Talos in 2012 through a $600 million equity funding. A year later, Talos Energy acquired the Phoenix Field for $620 million. This would prove a hard bargain as the market crashed. This did not affect Talos Energy as it continued fighting these challenges.
Amid Hurricane Harvey, Duncan who is now Talos chief executive was involved in a $2.5 billion merger with Stone energy. Stone Energy Company faced bankruptcy, and this was risky for Talos as it would trade without public offering expenses. The $900 million annual revenue from Stone energy and the 48000 barriers it can produce daily will be part of Talos assets.
Talos Energy has taken over the Gulf of Mexico by being the first private company to be part of oil drilling in Mexico. The company has partnered with Mexico’s Sierra oil and Gas together with Premier Oil Plc. London. These companies are actively invested in the Zama-1 well which records up to 500 million barrels.
Talos Energy has continued to explore, develop and produce oil and natural gas. Currently, its operations are at the Gulf of Mexico and the gulf coast. The company went public late 2017 and has since raised some money for further development. Tim Duncan and his team are taking Talos Company beyond the borders, and its development is on the spotlight especially with the risky measures they undertake.
When someone is looking to invest, they are bound to come across the idea of putting their money in Freedom Checks. Freedom Checks often come up along with investment opportunities that are questionable to most people who don’t understand how they work and why they have become so popular. The debate about the authenticity of the Checks has been put to rest after people who had staked money in opportunity started getting their money back accompanied by profits. Matt Badiali, who is the owner of the idea that gives births to freedom checks has said that this is an opportunity worth looking at for any prospective investor.
Matt Badiali is an investor who focuses his investments on geologically backed platforms. The Checks are investments, which are also concerned with geology. When someone invests in these checks, it implies that they have invested in a company or a group of companies that have their resources based in the United States. Badiali, who has an Earth Science Masters, knows this field too well. He has made investments that have brought back amazing amounts of money. For instance, when there was a crash in the stock market, he purchased shares worth $0.06 each. This investment brought back a return of more than two dollars for each share, making a 4,400% gain in value.
The Checks have become popular due to Matt Badiali’s background of making smart investments. The checks work when one invests in an organization bringing forth a Master Limited Partnership between the two parties. The returns generated from this investment solely depends on the amount of money that the investor has a stake in the company. Additionally, 90% of the resources that the company is investing in needs to come from the natural resources in the United States.
Once the freedom checks have matured, they are sent back to the investor after a given period. The money that an individual gets from freedom checks is however not subject to traditional tax laws. This makes the returns increase when one stakes their money in the stock exchange market. The only tax that someone needs to pay is when they sell their investments to a third party.

Paul Mampilly of Banyan Hill Publishing has been writing about the death of corporations lately. One of his articles says that corporations are an endangered species in the United States, a sentiment that Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon agree with. The issue is that investors only care about the short-term anymore. People don’t take a long view of company’s viability and profitability and instead just want each quarters numbers to be bigger than they were in the last quarter.
As Paul Mampilly points out, back in 1975 the 100 most profitable corporations accounted for 48.5 percent of all corporate profits. Today that number stands at 84.2 percent. The reason for this is that publically traded smaller companies can’t survive in this environment. Most never go public and stay at privately held companies because if they were to go public they would get slaughtered if they invest in the business for the long term.
As fewer companies go public it means that there are fewer opportunities for regular investors to make money, Paul Mampilly says. These smaller companies stay private which means the only people who profit from them are venture capitalists. This is one of the reasons that there is such a huge gap in the United States today between the haves and the have-nots.
Paul Mampilly was a big name when he was working on Wall Street. He was often featured on financial news shows. His ability to generate huge returns for hedge funds led to the Templeton Foundation inviting him to participate in their investment challenge. During this challenge, which took place between 2008 and 2009, was won by him when he had a staggering 76% return. He was even able to accomplish this feat without shorting the stock of any companies or doing high risk investing.
However, he dropped off the map in 2010. He took some time off and then quietly started letting regular investors in on his trading strategies and secrets. He publishes this information through Banyan Hill Publishing and his financial newsletter, Profits Unlimited. He also writes articles about investment opportunities for other publications this company puts out.

According to Aloha Construction, there are four steps to take when your home has experienced fire and smoke damage. The one thing everyone wants to avoid after a fire has occurred in their homes is having to live out of a hotel room for months because the renovations take a long time. This is one reason why it is so important to hire the right construction companyto get the repairs done right and in a timely manner.
The first step to take after a fire has occurred in your home is to secure the property. You don’t want more problems cropping up such as your home becoming a target for those who want to steal things or vandalize the property. The team at Aloha Construction says that you want to make sure all exterior doors and windows are locked. The next step is to make sure the home is safe. This means having it inspected by an engineer and a licensed electrician. Not all damage is visible so you want trained professionals making sure the home is safe before your family starts living in it again.
Sahm Adrangi of Kerrisdale Capital Management recently had the honor of being the first speaker at a conference held to talk about short selling named, “The Art, Pain, and Opportunity of Short Selling”. This conference featured over a dozen speakers who talked about the challenges facing those who are short sellers, betting that a company’s stock is overvalued and due for a correction to where its price should be.
He named his speech Ad Fraud Opportunities“. Sahm Adrangi along with his colleagues believe that ad fraud is on the increase. When a news report comes out talking about the latest fraud in regards to online ad numbers he needs to be able to quickly predict what will happen to the stock value of the company that is involved. By making correct bets he increased Kerrisdale Capital Management from a firm with $1 million in assets 10 years ago to a company that now manages $150 million.
Sahm Adrangi is notable for researching companies, spotting that they are overvalued, shorting their stock, and then publishing his research. One company he recently called out as overvalued is The St. Joe Company. He pointed out a number of this company’s shortcomings which led to a big decline in this company’s stock value. Among the shortcomings, he pointed out was that they have some pretty desolate land near Panama City Beach which they bought over a decade ago and so far have little to show for it.
Sahm Adrangi released his research showing that The St. Joe Company stock value was very absurd. The market values this company at close to $1 billion. In order to be worth that amount of money, Sahm Adrangi stated that they would have to sell more land than every other company in the Florida Pan Handle put together. It would require that this land would have to become the top-selling master planned community in the United States which is virtually impossible because it is swampland in a remote area that just about nobody wants to live on. He said that this plan has no way of panning out and so he shorted their stock.
David Zalik is best known as the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of GreenSky LLC. Mr. Zalik has an incredibly bright mind, so truly bright that he dropped out of high school at just 13 years of age – and by “dropped out,” I mean he immediately graduated high school by passing secondary school exit exams in the state of Alabama and used his near-perfect SAT scores to end up on Auburn University’s campus, one of the brightest in terms of academics in the state.
GreenSky Credit is another common name for GreenSky – the company essentially acts as a broker between lenders with tens upon hundreds of millions of dollars in capital and tens of thousands of loan applicants hoping to become approved customers. However, unlike true brokers who simply act as middlemen or third-party marketing services that attract customers and initialize transactions before shipping them onto their creditor or debtor destinations.
Without the juice Mr. David Zalik brings to the table through his strategy and personality, GreenSky Credit wouldn’t have set uptransactions worth $10 million, let alone upwards of $12 billion since its inception in 2006.
Zalik, a billionaire known for his entrepreneurial skill, was even able to take GreenSky LLC public to raise even more capital for its operations. Less than two years ago, GreenSky LLC reeled in some $50 million on an independent valuation of $3.6 billion in total assets. This happens quite frequently at the Atlanta, Georgia-based business; it’s known as one of hottest investment raisers in the Southeast.
Since David Zalik has such a high personal wealth, he’s able to solicit hefty investments in his co-founded corporate creation of GreenSky Credit from long-term business partners that often invest in GreenSky Credit, newbies who quickly find out they can trust Mr. Zalik with whatever they desire.
Here’s how Greensky Credit reelsin the dough – the contractors that send out the loans to customers through the intermediary of GreenSky Credit break off about 5 to 6 percent of the loan’s value; GreenSky, under David Zalik’s expert leadership, is also able to double dip on commissions earned by taxing customers.

Stream Energy employees have demonstrated their passion about aiding in homelessness through partnering with Hope Supply Co. An annual Splash for Hope fundraiser provides 1,000 homeless people free entrance and cost fees through this partnership. Located at a water park, children and families are also provided with money and supplies.
Stream Cares frequently partners with other organizations to maximize positive impact on the community. They had also partnered with The Salvation Army to provide relief to victims of the 2016 Texas Tornado.

Jeunesse Global is quickly becoming one of the most renowned household names in the global health and beauty industry. Founded in 2009 by inveterate entrepreneurs Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, Jeunesse Global has grown from a tiny hobby business run out of the couple’s Florida mansion into a billion-dollar international health and beauty powerhouse. Few times in history has there ever been a company that has proven so disruptive to an established industry in so little time.
And the secret behind this tremendous success has been Ray and Lewis’ ability to spot underserved market niches and to then quickly develop revolutionary products that are both innovative and effective to address those unmet needs. Prior to founding Jeunesse Global, Ray and Lewis had enjoyed phenomenal success in a wide variety of other businesses. They then used those skills in building Jeunesse.
One of the things that helped Ray and Lewis greatly in the early stages of growing the business was the couple’s extensive contacts within the health and beauty industry. Specifically, the couple was able to contact some of the top product-development scientists, including organic chemists, nutritionists and biologists, creating some of the most innovative and effective products that the industry has seen in decades.
The culmination of this work has been the company’s Youth Enhancement System. Designed as a single package of products that meets all the health and beauty needs of consumers, the Youth Enhancement System represents one of the strongest efforts to adapt many of the cutting-edge advancements in anti-aging science of the last three decades into usable products. An example of this is the company’s patented anti-aging molecule. Known as APT-200, the substance has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, restore elasticity and promote a vibrant, youthful glow to the skin.
APT-200 can be found in a number of Jeunesse Global products where it serves to compliment the company’s already high-performing skincare products. Other examples of the company’s innovations include its M1nd cognition-enhancing energy drink and its heart-protective Reserve health drink, a product that confers all of the benefits of red wine consumption without any of the risks of alcohol.
