I’ve found that most real estate investors have some HUGE misconceptions about raw land as an investment. A lot of people have the erroneous notion that vacant land is a weak (or even pointless) investment opportunity because… - It doesn’t produce income. - It just sits there and nothing happens. - It’s boring. It’s an unfortunate misconception because the truth is – vacant land is capable of producing some serious cash flow and it’s one of the best investments in the world BECAUSE of its hands-off nature.

Bitcoin futures launch tomorrow (Dec. 10) on CBOE and on December 18th for CME Group. Many people speculate that the cause for Bitcoin's run-up recently is over anticipation for these Bitcoin futures. In this video, I discuss the potential impact of futures on Bitcoin's price. First and foremost, I suspect liquidity will be lower than expected. The target group for Bitcoin futures are institutional investors and wealthy individuals, both of which tend to be more cautious. Given the warnings from FIA, Interactive Brokers and many others, these larger investors will likely be more reserved until the first expiration occurs and they have some experience watching the volatility in the futures themselves. I did a brief explanation of cash-settled futures in the video, but I'd recommend you seek other sources to flesh out your understanding further. For example, I accidentally implied that the initial margin & mark-to-market process is done based off the spot price rather than the settlement price. The explanation I gave in the video is good enough for laymen, but if you want to trade these, then you'll want to do some serious reading. I might do a video showing how to actually trade them in the future and get more technical. The initial margin requirements are already high for Bitcoin and might increase depending on volatility. Certain brokers are already implementing higher than required initial margin requirements and are forbidding their clients from going short. Maintenance margin requirements will likely be in flux as well. Price limits might be tested more frequently than anticipated, leading to a choppy futures market which then screws with the underlying spot market. All of this is to say that many investors will wait before pumping significant amounts of capital into this nascent asset class. Given this, I suspect this might be a "sell-the-news" type event and we might experience a correction following the CME Group futures launching if there are difficulties associated with their clearing. Note that CME Group has much higher contract volume than CBOE, so the CBOE futures launch will likely be more useful as an indicator of what to expect when CME launches. I also forgot to note in the video that CME Group contracts are for 5 Bitcoin, which may have confused some of you when I said the initial margin requirements would be exceptionally high for CME Group options despite the fact they are going with lower initial margin requirements (35% vs. 44%) as a percentage of the contract value. In the long-term, futures are excellent news for Bitcoin. They increase liquidity in a somewhat illiquid market, will decrease pricing inconsistencies (arbitrage), improve price discovery, and reduce volatility. The short-term will see volatility rise (likely) due to leverage, but this effect should reduce over the following months. Ideally, this opens the door for a Bitcoin ETF down the road as well. Eventually, more institutional investors will jump in as risk declines - but this will be a delayed effect (in my opinion) rather than an immediate one. I would love to hear your thoughts.

The Howey Test and Investment Contracts- In the last Lawcast I talked about the “Howey Test” for determining when an investment contract is a security. The Howey Test has been applied to find that many non-traditional investments are a security. So for instance, in a later case, the court found that sale of shares in a housing cooperative that were bundled with the cost of an apartment to be used as a residence and where the coop income is used for common operating expenses and upkeep of the building, there was not a securities transaction where the investors were attracted solely by the prospect of acquiring a place to live, and not by financial returns on their investments. However, courts have found that the sale of a condominium unit itself can be a security where (i) the offer of the unit is accompanied with an opportunity to participate in a rental pool; (ii) the offer of the unit requires use of an exclusive rental agent; (iii) the offer of a unit that limits time of use of the owner or involves shared ownership (time share arrangements); or (iv) advertising the sale of a unit with an emphasis on economic benefit (such as rental income or tax benefits). Applying the Howey Test, courts have interpreted a security to include such diverse items as citrus groves, warehouse receipts, chinchillas, minks, diamonds, bullion, pay phones, prepaid phone cards, real estate and equipment, and condominium units, when they were offered or sold under circumstances involving the investment of money and expectation of a return through the efforts of others. The Howey Test actually interprets an “investment contract” as that term is used in the federal securities laws and, as later clarified by the Supreme Court in Landreth Timber Co. v. Landreth, is not meant to be used to decide whether all securities are indeed a “security.” Accordingly, where the sale of a business is completed through the sale of stock or other equity interests, if the ultimate success of the investment is dependent on the efforts of the investor/buyer, even though the stock or other equity is clearly a security in the statutory definition, the Howey Test does not apply. In particular, the Landreth court held that where a business is sold via the sale of the equity in the business, it is a security and the registration and exemption provisions of Section 5, broker-dealer registration requirements under the Exchange Act and anti-fraud provisions under both the Securities Act and Exchange Act apply. However, as I will talk about in future Lawcasts, later SEC guidance and no action letters, as well as various state statutes have carved out an exemption from the broker dealer registration requirements in this sale of business fact set...

As you can see, used appropriately, equity can be an amazing way to incentivize team members and attract key advisors and investors. Like I did with Uber’s Travis Kalanick But if you don’t enter the conversation with clear knowledge of the right benchmarks to shoot for… … then you’re setting yourself up to either give too much away or lose talent and investors to other startups playing a much sharper numbers game. So get your numbers right. Make the right offers. And then step up to the plate and use equity for the growth accelerant it is. To splitting the pie… (and watching it grow), – Dan Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too: https://youtu.be/hWA1b8owinc ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force.

See the full blog post at: http://REtipster.com/landinvesting Vacant land is one of the most overlooked and underused real estate investments in the world. I’ve found that most real estate investors have some HUGE misconceptions about raw land as an investment. A lot of people have the erroneous notion that vacant land is a weak (or even pointless) investment opportunity because… - It doesn’t produce income. - It just sits there and nothing happens. - It’s boring. It’s an unfortunate misconception because the truth is – vacant land is capable of producing some serious cash flow and it’s one of the best investments in the world BECAUSE of its hands-off nature. I LOVE the fact that land just sits there and NOTHING HAPPENS. The simplicity and stability that comes with owning the right piece of land (purchased at the right price) can far outweigh the myriad of problems that come with owning any other type of real estate. If you’ve overlooked vacant land as an investment opportunity in the past, you need to take a few minutes and get educated about what land is all about. Here Are 10 Reasons You Should Be Investing In Land: 1) With Vacant Land, You Don’t Need to “do” Anything to the Property. 2) Raw Land is a “Hands-Off” Investment. 3) Statistically, Vacant Land Owners are Highly Motivated to Sell. 4) Raw Land Investors Have Virtually No Competition to Deal With. 5) Vacant Land Investors Call Their Own Shots. 6) When You Learn How to Research Properties Effectively, you can Buy and Sell Vacant Land Properties Without Ever Seeing Them In-Person. 7) Add Seller Financing to the Mix and You Can EXPLODE Your Income Potential. 8) Vacant Land is VERY Inexpensive to Own as a Long-Term Investment. 9) Raw Land Gives its Owner Peace of Mind. 10) They Aren’t Making Any More Of It. Land Investing Is A Huge Opportunity! This niche is without question, the most powerful strategy I’ve used to build my real estate investing career. I’ve bought and sold dozens of vacant land properties and generated a lot of passive income by selling them with Seller Financing. You can do it too and I'd love to show you how! Come check out the REtipster Club at http://REtipster.Club - and we'll take a deep dive into how this real estate investing strategy works. #retipster #sethwilliams #landinvesting #realestateinvesting #realestate

Wholesaling contracts specifically purchase and sales agreement's can be scary for a new investor. It is important that you make the right decision and know how to use the wholesaling contracts you have. It can get you in trouble if done incorrectly as well as you can lose money. Many people get scared and try and do deals without using a contract and really they are at more risk. They are acting as an agent without a license and they are risking the other partner taking advantage of them. Take your wholesaling contracts that you are using the specific purchase and sales agreement and read it over and over until you understand it or it could cost you ten's of thousands of dollars.

Contracts for difference (CFDs) are a high-risk financial product. It is important that you understand the key features of CFDs before you decide whether or not to risk your money. Visit the MoneySmart website to learn more: https://www.moneysmart.gov.au/investing/complex-investments/contracts-for-dif... Download ASIC's investor guide 'Thinking of Contracts for Difference (CFDs)' from the link above for suggested questions to ask a CFD issuer before opening an account. Because of the leverage in CFDs, gains and losses are magnified - and the risks are much greater. You can end up losing much more than you put in. The complex structure of CFDs and the risks associated with them mean that they are unlikely to meet the investment needs and objectives of most retail investors. In this video we introduce concepts of 'long' CFDs, 'short' CFDs, leverage, initial margin and margin calls. TRANSCRIPT -------------------------- Voice over: What are CFDs? Andrew: The first thing to know is that CFDs are complex and risky financial products. It's important that you fully understand how they work before you decide to invest. Unlike share trading, you don't actually own the underlying asset you are trading in. A CFD is a derivative contract between you and a CFD issuer. When you trade CFDs, you are financially exposed to changes in the value of an underlying asset while the contract remains open. The underlying asset might be a share, a commodity, a foreign exchange pair or a market index. You can 'go long' which means you buy a CFD expecting the underlying asset to increase in value. Or 'going short' on a CFD means selling it because you expect the underlying asset to decrease in value. Voice over: How can CFDs expose you to market risk? Andrew: CFDs are highly leveraged investment products. So let's take a look at an example CFD investment. Say you have $5,000 to invest. If you open a 'long' share CFD position with a value of $100,000 you will have to pay an initial margin or collateral to the CFD issuer - in this case a tiny proportion of the exposure, like 5% or $5,000. This leverage can make CFDs seem attractive, but because you are trading with leverage, both gains and losses are magnified - and you can end up losing more than you put in. If the share price drops by 1%, you could face a $1,000 loss. That's one-fifth of your $5,000 investment, before even considering fees and charges. Or worse - if an unexpected event results in a 20% fall in the opening share price, this is a $20,000 loss to you. That's your $5,000 investment gone and another $15,000 that you owe the CFD issuer. In some situations, even a 'stop loss' order may not prevent a loss of this kind. Voice over: What is a margin call and an automatic close out? Andrew: If the market turns against your CFD position; you can close your position and limit your losses; or if you keep your CFD position open, the CFD issuer will ask you to pay extra money quickly. This is known as a margin call. The CFD issuer may (but may not) close out your contract to prevent further losses. If your margin is not enough to cover your trading losses, you will still be legally obliged to make up the difference. Voice over: Are CFDs suitable for me? Andrew: You should only consider trading CFDs if you have extensive trading experience; you are used to trading in volatile market conditions, and you can afford to lose all of the money you put in and more. Voice over: What else should I know? Andrew: These are only some of the risks of trading CFDs. It's important that you read a CFD issuer's Product Disclosure Statement or PDS before you open an account. If you don't understand how the CFDs and the underlying assets work, then don't invest. To help you understand more of the risks involved, ASIC has put together the investor guide Thinking of trading in contracts for difference (CFDs), available from MoneySmart. The guide also contains suggested you should ask before opening a CFD account. You can find the guide on the MoneySmart website.

by Dale Russell Aired Feb. 28, 2017 ATLANTA - A FOX 5 I-Team investigation found nineteen days after Mayor Reed was elected, his father, June, started a company called Capital Plastic Recyclers June Reed raised as much as $250,000 from ten or more Atlanta investors according to two of his business associates. Reed set up his recycling shop in Cheraw, South Carolina, five hours north of Atlanta. Who were all his investors? No one involved will say. But, our investigation found two of those investors had strong ties to the Atlanta Airport. Investor in business run by Mayor Kasim Reed's father later won millions in airport contracts. We've already told you about Lance Lyttle. He was - at the time - the assistant general manager at the Airport. Lyttle invested $50,000, according to a lawsuit he filed against June Reed. Lyttle accused Reed of fraud. The law suit shows while June Reed began paying the money back, the case was settled. Lyttle left the airport and now works at the Seattle-Tacoma International airport. He wouldn't comment. Nor would June Reed. We found a second investor also had strong ties to the airport. Darrell Anderson is a limousine company owner and longtime family friend of the Reeds. Kasim Reed and Darrell Anderson, along with other investors, bought a $1.4 million piece of property off Cascade Road together back in 2007. In 2010 Anderson invested in June Reed's recycling company. A bank check, obtained by FOX 5 I-Team, shows Anderson's company A-National Limousine wrote a $32,000 check to cash in July of 2010. On the check it states the money was for: Capital Plastic Recyclers. On the phone, I asked Anderson if he was an investor. He told me: "I was. That was a long time ago. I've been out of it for a long time." One month after Anderson wrote that $32,000 check, in the summer of 2010, Atlanta airport officials gave Darrell Anderson control over the city's lucrative airport shuttle business. There was no competitive bid. The old shuttle company was out. Anderson was in. It was supposed to be temporary but ended up lasting four years. Sara Henderson is the director of good government group Common Cause. "It really seems, very back room, old politics kind of things happening in this situation," says Henderson. But there was another check. Shortly after Christmas, Anderson's company wrote a $35,000 to June Reed personally. On the check it states the money was an "advance CPR." On the phone, Anderson told me the timing of the check written to June Reed had nothing to do with his new found city business. "Now you are going into left field about one thing that's got nothing to do with the other." Sara Henderson found the check troubling. "It looks awful; especially when you have copies of check written directly to the father. Not to the business, to the father. This is clearly a conflict of interest," she told me. Just months after the second check was written, in early 2011, Anderson was selected to take over his second contract at the airport. The city notified Darrell Anderson he was the winning bidder in a contract to manage cars, taxis, and limousines at the airport. The contract was later canceled and rebid, but Anderson won again. The 5 year $6.6 million contract required Anderson to disclose any potential conflicts of interest. Anderson did not disclose his financial dealings with Mayor Reed's father. That contract was signed by Anderson and Mayor Reed. "I think the Mayor needs to come out and say, address this situation, and talk directly about these relationship and the money that has changed hands," says the director of Common Cause. Darrell Anderson later wrote two more checks totaling $20,000 to June Reed. Written in 2012, and 2013 to June Reed personally, the checks indicate the money was for a "loan." The recycling company was still in business then. The city also awarded Anderson his third airport contract just three months ago. A 3 year $10 million contract to provide Terminal to Terminal transportation at the airport. Mayor Reed's spokesperson in a statement said we are trying to smear the administration, public employees and small business people, and no one has broken any laws.
