Dondero Details The Highland Capital Investments

The University of Virginia struck gold when James Dondero entered through its gates, a student who would later leave with possibly the highest honors that the institution had to offer. Already holding the CMA, CFA and CPA certification, James Dondero, or Jim as some would call him, is the proud President of Highland Capital Management, the investment firm which he had the pleasure to father as well.

With a man like James Dondero sitting on the highest throne of the firm, the Highland Capital Management faces expectations of the highest ranking. Dondero’s history threads through the Morgan Guaranty, which was the very beginning of his business career (1984), followed by American Express where he worked as the Portfolio Manager. James also served as an Analyst of the Corporate Bonds before creating GIC Protective Life, and finally coming to a rest at the Highland Capital Management.

The firm has recently hit the news with the announcement of its holdings. The assets held by the firm amount to $15.04 billion, with 69 new and 62 additional purchases, the top 5 of which sports names like AMZN, SPY, ITCI, DHR and Eagle Pharmaceuticals, each of which has sparkling figures to flaunt. The firm also made advancements in the American Airls Group Inc, where it increased its stakes by about 60%. This was followed by an increase in stakes in various other companies, with the Kinder Morgan standing out at a figure of 173%.

Possibly in anticipation of better values, the Highland Capital Management reported that it had sold the stakes in six organizations, including those of the Spdr Trust, NHF, Envision Healthcare, MCK and Laboratory Corp. Combined to this, it also dialed down its stakes in Ishares, AAL, AXP, Anadarko Pete Corp and NRG Energy by -52%, -56%, -17.5%, -76.7% and -20.76% respectively.

At the end of the day, the top 3 holdings constituted of the American Airls Group, Ishares Tr, and Salesforce Com, making up 13.59% of the securities for this quarter.

James Dondero made some bold advancement in the allocation of the sectors. About 20% has gone to health, 18% to finance and technology separately, 12% to the energy and finally 10% to the consumer discretionary.

Donald Drumpf is Now on Wikipedia

On the February 28th episode of his hit HBO show Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver went on an epic rant about Donald Trump, where he told viewers the truth about Donald Trump’s last name: It was originally “Drumpf.” Now, fans of the show have bonded together to make a Wikipedia page detailing the episode.

“Drumpf is much less magical — it’s the sound produced when a morbidly obese pigeon flies into the window of a foreclosed Old Navy. It’s the sound of a bottle of store-brand root beer falling off the shelf in a gas station mini mart,” stated John Oliver. John ended his episode by urging viewers to “Make Donald Drumpf again.” He set up website where, for $17.50, fans can buy hats with the “Make Donald Drumpf Again” slogan, which is a play on Trump’s “Make America Great Again.”Wikipedia pages are a complex but powerful marketing tool that help you make your mark in the world today.

Solo Capital: Expanding Around The World

Solo Capital was founded by Sanjay Shah in 2011. The firm is also known as Solo Capital UK, Solo Capital Limited and Solo Capital Markets. The firm is regulated by the United Kingdom but it now also has offices in Dubai. The firm started out with a just a few individuals, Shah, a handful of graduates and a couple of traders. It did not take long until they have more than 100 employees. The firm has assets that are worth 67 million pounds, a cash flow of 30 million pounds and a net worth of 15 million pounds. They have 3 divisions that offer services. The first division is Professional Sports Investments. Within this division, Solo Capital offers commercial advisory and representation, talent acquisition and asset and performance management. The second division is proprietary trading. Within this division, commodities, FX and derivatives are available. The third division is consulting. Under consulting, Solo Capital offers performance, investment and human capital.

Sanjay Shsh has turned Solo Capital into a massive success. Because of Solo Capital and a few other ventures, Shah is now worth 280 million dollars. He owns more than 3 dozen companies around the world and every country from the United Arab Emirates to the British Virgin Islands. But before Shah was buying businesses, he worked for various investment firms that helped to give him the experience he needed in order to succeed later. He worked first for KPMG as a trainee Chartered Accountant. He then worked in a variety of positions for companies like Rabobank, Credit Suisse and Merrill Lynch. He also worked for Morgan Stanly and ING Bank.

Prior to gaining vast experience in accounting, Shah was born and raised in London. He went on to King’s College. He originally wanted to study medicine but quickly figured out that medicine was not for him so he decided to instead pursue accounting. During his days at King’s College, Shah enjoyed promoting concerts in clubs around London. He later was able to utilize this passion.

This occurred when he was able to take a step back from his position of oversight at Solo Capital. Shah decided that he wanted to get involved in promoting events in Dubai. He contacted a promotional firm in Dubai and they chose to partner on a jazz festival. It was such a success that it is now an annual event where thousands attend in Dubai. The firm that Shah partnered with, Done Events, was also able to connect him to several musicians who have helped him raise money for his charity, Autism Rocks. Shah founded this charity in order to raise money and support his diagnosed son.

Kyle Bass: Financial Hoodwinker

Getting “hoodwinked” is a term often used in description of one who gets taken advantage of by another. A Snidely Whiplash character is the type who would hoodwink a well-meaning protagonist. The thing about real life is that, beyond metaphysics predicating an extended existence, there isn’t always a Dudley Do-Right to set things straight. Kyle Bass, though without a pointy mustache and pointy hat, seems to be a hoodwinking type based on the facts. At the very least, his financial decisions of late have been suspiciously poor; especially in light of the claim-to-fame which recommends him, his prediction of America’s 2008 financial crisis. It takes financial acumen to accurately predict future trends–at the very least it takes access to high-profile information. Yet though Kyle Bass was able to predict the 2008 financial crisis, in his home country of Argentina, he has yet to criticize despotic socialist president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. De Kirchner has defaulted Argentina economically twice in the space of thirteen years, yet Bass does nothing but recommend the woman. For many, this paints him as a lackey, and also informs the perplexing facts surrounding his United States endeavors.

Kyle Bass runs a hedge fund that has seen regular decline in performance over the last several years. Though he has begun to appear more and more regularly in the mainstream media, his fund seems as though it performs more and more poorly despite these appearances.

UsefulStooges showed Kyle Bass has branched out into CAD, beyond his hedge fund. CAD is the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. It’s an organization with the ostensible purpose of lowering big-ticket pharmaceuticals’ medication cost. Successfully it has done this a number of times, the end result cheaper drugs and a devaluation of the companies’ stock-market value. Bass short-sells his holdings with these pharmaceuticals when their stock-value decreases. It’s an effect he knew would happen as a result of CAD, so in a legal way, Bass is manipulating the stock market. He makes millions by devaluing pharmaceutical stock, and the ones who suffer aren’t just the CEOs of the companies afflicted. Because profit is lost, research and development must be curtailed to maintain these organizations’ bottom line, meaning future breakthroughs are halted.

All these things bear the characteristics of someone using the financial market to exact collateral profit. Bass’ affiliation to Kirchner is suspicious, his poor hedge fund is suspicious, and CAD is a blazing red flag against his forthrightness.

Charles Koch’s Political Dilemma: An Interview with Vanity Fair

Known for their impact on U.S. politics, the Koch brothers, Charles and David, believed their strategies had worked, placing them in prime position to elect a Republican president in 2016. Unfortunately, David Koch could not foresee Donald Trumps’ entering the election campaign. In the Vanity Fair article “Can the Koch Brothers Stop Trump?” Charles not only laments their lack of influence over the 2016 campaign but shares some of their reasons for opposing Trump. A serious dilemma looms; whether to invest in attacks against the Democratic presidential candidate or devote campaign resources to block Trump’s becoming the Republican Presidential nominee.

Charles, the older brother, doesn’t believe in party labels. After graduating from M.I.T, the self-described “classical liberal” focused on expanding a free market that would support his family’s business goals. After a failed attempt to build a viable third party during the 1970’s, the Libertarians, the Kochs changed strategies to work through an existing party, the Republicans. Using their Libertarian network, the Kochs would inject their philosophies, changing the party’s platform. During the 2012 campaign, Obama outmaneuvered their candidate, Mitt Romney.

The article continues, describing Koch’s covert efforts to harness the political system, describes the depth of the Trump dilemma, then discusses how Koch’s efforts have not only decentralized the political process but has inspired other wealthy mega-donors to shun existing political institutions to strike out on their own. The article concludes that these efforts have decreased the Koch’s carefully cultivated influence and have led to an era if uncertainty for Charles Koch’s family, businesses and politics.
