SMM Weekly Update October 9th

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 12, 2017

Weekly Update: October 9, 2017

Happy to have Hurricanes behind us, but there will be a tremendous amount of work to put the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and neighboring Islands back together. Our hearts got out to those affected and hope everyone can set politics aside to get these people taken care of in a timely fashion.

One of the organizations you can trust to not be a front for some scam is the Red Cross. If you’ve got a few bucks to spare they could sure use it. Donate Here. We donated $100.00, but anything you can do will be greatly appreciated and you can direct funds to Hurricane Maria victims if you wish.

Of course Puerto Rico was in a very precarious financial position before these storms and in May filed a form of Bankruptcy with $123 billion in uncovered debt.

This was published in NY times on May 17, 2017. Click Here>>

This brings up the question of whether this will be the event that finally pushes Puerto Rico into statehood. The Statehood votes over the last few decades have been very close. Now with devastation from Coast to Coast and totally reliant on outside help, the recovery and rebuilding of the economy will be a long haul and people will suffer tremendously. In June 97% of voters said they be willing to sacrifice the quasi-independence and no federal income tax in return for Statehood, but will congress now move forward and pass a bill to approve Statehood. Puerto Rico’s governor is pressing ahead on that front. From LA Times Oct-5 Click here for details

Latest Happenings

Let’s talk football-

Well regardless of what you think about the politics going on the NFL the Packers and Cowboys game was outstanding. Right down to the wire and a great display of talent.

Aaron Rodgers is going to go down as one of the greats and to follow in the footsteps of Brett Favre is no small feat. More on Aaron

Again that look on Jerry Jones face like he just had a swig of milk that was in the fridge a couple two weeks to long. 

To celebrate we’re kicking off a Football season contest.

Every week through superbowl we’re giving away $50.00 and at the end of every month a free subscription to the Black Swan Research Subscription (a $399 value)

Here is what you have to do:
Make sure you’re registered on our website and subscribe to the Black Swan Newsletter.

Click Here if you’re not already registered for some reason or need to update your profile.

Send me an email to: telling me in a few sentences why you think your pick from the “A Football Life” video profiles should be the next to be featured in our newsletter.

From the winners we’ll draw a name and send you $50.00, publish your comments and enter you for the monthly Black Swan Research drawing. Yup, it’s that simple.

This week’s pick (mine) is Coach John Madden. Guy started out with a love for the game and even though he wasn’t destined to player stardom following a knee injury wouldn’t take no for an answer. Eventually through hard work and determination became a Hall of Fame coach, one of the most beloved football announcers of all time, an author and a gazillionaire from the football video games that bear his name.

Great inspiration. Check it out

Latest from our Partners at Generali Global Assurance

Malware: Vulnerable Computers mean Vulnerable Identities

In the wake of the recent Equifax data breach, we're all in a state of heightened awareness regarding the vulnerability of our personal data. And while large scale attacks continue to be a threat, our personal devices face a constant barrage of efforts by hackers and identity thieves to gather valuable information that can be used for fraud. While we'll never be completely safe, we can take action to minimize the risk.

If you’ve been anywhere near a TV set or a newspaper in the last few weeks, there’s no doubt you’re aware of the massive data breach of Equifax – one of the country’s three major consumer credit bureaus. Over 143 million records are suspected to have been exposed – meaning about half of Americans are facing an increased risk of identity fraud.

These highly-public data breaches heighten our awareness of the ongoing security risk of our personal data, but we are consistently under attack on our own devices. If your computer is connected to a network it is at risk. A recent study suggested that hackers are attempting to hack personal computers every 39 seconds. Many of these attacks are designed to install malicious software (or “Malware”) on individual computers in an effort to capture personal information – whether it’s yours or someone else’s.


How to Protect Your Identity

SMM has partnered with Generali Global Assistance to provide the most comprehensive and cost effective ID Theft protection available

By now, you are most likely aware that Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit bureaus in the United States, has reported a widespread data breach, potentially exposing the records of 143 million people.

Unfortunately, we are living in an era where data breaches are becoming increasingly common and it is more important than ever to stay vigilant. Comprehensive, proactive identity and credit monitoring are a critical line of defense in minimizing the risk of identity fraud resulting from personal information exposed during a breach, particularly one of this size.

While data breaches represent highly public examples of identity theft, identity fraud with its long term, time-consuming financial impacts, can occur months or years later. Our Identity Protection program provided by Generali Global Assistance consistently monitors the deep and dark web where stolen personal information is bought and sold, so that if suspicious activity does occur, we can take quick action to minimize the risk and resolve any issues.

For today's bulletin, we take a look at financial giant Goldman Sachs $GS and reports that the bank is studying a trading plan for cyber-currency like Bitcoin. We also provide a link to download a FREE STOCK REPORT on the company

VALUATION WATCH: Overvalued stocks now make up 61.95% of our stocks assigned a valuation and 26.24% of those equities are calculated to be overvalued by 20% or more. Fourteen sectors are calculated to be overvalued. Because overvaluation is now calculated to be above 60%, we have re-instituted our valuation watch.

ValuEngine STRONG BUY Goldman Sachs Eyes Bitcoin Trading Op

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS) is an investment banking, securities and investment management company that provides a range of financial services to corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals. The Company operates in four business segments: Investment Banking, Institutional Client Services, Investing & Lending, and Investment Management. The Investment Banking segment consists of financial advisory and underwriting. The Institutional Client Services segment makes markets and facilitates client transactions in fixed income, equity, currency and commodity products. The investing and lending activities, which are typically longer-term, include its investing and relationship lending activities across various asset classes, primarily debt securities and loans, public and private equity securities, infrastructure and real estate. The Investment Management segment provides investment and wealth advisory services. As of December 2016, it had offices in over 30 countries. 

Financial media is awash in reports today that Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs is exploring options related to trading cyber currencies like Bitcoin. Although no firm plans are yet in place, the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and other outlets are reporting that the bank is in talk with "cryptocurrency experts" about setting up exchanges where clients could trade Bitcoin and other similar vehicles.

This will be tricky for the bank, as the cyber currencies are popular vehicles for a variety of nefarious activities including tax evasion, drug dealing, arms sales, etc. US and other law enforcement agencies are engaged in an onoging battle with so-called "dark web" bazaars that sell everything from credit card numbers to MDMA to weapons. Cyber criminals who infect computers with ransomware also prefer to be paid their ransoms in cyber currencies such as Bitcoin.

In launching this initiative, Goldman has embarked on a different path from competitors such as JPMorgan Chase. Just last month, the CEO at JPMorgan pronounced Bitcoin a "fraud" and promised to fire any bank employee who traded it for being "stupid."

Goldman may see an opportunity here, but one wonders how they can possibly meet various regulatory requirements when dealing with an investment whose raison d'être is providing users with anonymity and easy portability. For now, we'll just have to wait and see what the bank comes up with as more details leak out about its plans.

ValuEngine continues its STRONG BUY recommendation on Goldman Sachs for 2017-09-29. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Goldman Sachshas the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Company Size and Momentum.
