Ted Bauman Keys Investors In To An Important Detail Related To President Trump’s Trade Wars

Ted Bauman is an investment adviser and contributor to Banyan Hill Publishing who is the editor of Alpha Stock Alert, Plan B Club, and The Bauman Letter. As a man who travels around the world, he was recently in South Africa and took notice that many of the products in the country are made by American companies. He has also noticed the same trend in other countries like Switzerland and Germany. While the American products he bought were made in South Africa, the companies or copyright owners who invented them get a part of the sales.

This money does not technically come from “exports,” because a company must have some kind of presence in the U.S.A. to qualify them as so. Under president Trump’s export laws, those who hold licenses and foreign subsidiaries are not included. Ted Bauman wants investors to understand that this makes a big difference. The United States has a trade deficit with many countries around the world but part of its deficit with China becomes a surplus, of sorts. Bauman has revealed that there aren’t any companies that need to manufacture goods in their own country to be shipped elsewhere. In fact, if companies based in the U.S.A. manufacture their products overseas where they sell them, it saves them money on the cost of shipping.

Many American companies make a lot of their money through the licensing of their brand name and then selling products overseas that are made overseas. This means that manufacturing does not need to happen in the U.S., and Ted Bauman wants investors to know that they should watch their investments in American companies closely if they were made with foreign subsidiaries. For example, Apple does a lot of business in China, but if a trade war took place, the profits of the company would be affected negatively. Ted Bauman feels that president Trump should slow down on his talk of trade wars as these will certainly have an effect on the stock market. Already, we are seeing that Canadians are vowing to buy less products from American companies and we are also seeing less imports from Canada due to tariffs.

Boraie Development’s Role In New Brunswick

Last summer Boraie Development and The Provident Bank Foundation sponsored the Free Summer Movies Series which enabled and encouraged parents and camp counselors to come and bring their children and campers to the historic State Theater, a cinema dating back to 1921 which is now one of New Jersey’s preeminent venues for live performances. Movies featured in this fantastic series were Frozen, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, Despicable Me 2, Babe, Monsters University, and Aladdin. An article on this was published through the New Jersey Stage when the news first broke about the series which was announced by the State Theater. The article provides great context of the series.

The series was much loved and enabled the community to take advantage of the scenic theater, no matter what their income level was. All six movies being free enabled the community to come together and enjoy fantastic movies while also experiencing incredible customer service and seeing the joys that Boraie Development and its local partners and friends can provide to New Brunswick. Hiam Boraie, Vice President of Boraie Development had this to say about the series: “We are proud to once again sponsor this wonderful series, giving local families and young people the chance to see movies for free in this remarkable historic venue.”

Being able to see movies at the State Theater allowed moviegoers to take part in a truly unrivaled cinematic experience thanks to the Theaters state-of-the-art HD digital cinema projection system, and surrounded by over 1,000 people thanks to the 1,850 seating theater where moviegoers could even decide where they wanted to see the movie from: downstairs or from up in the balcony.

This experience was possible because of Omar Boraie and their diverse set of services centered on the urban real estate market. Their company website lists some of their skills and specialties as well as making clear that their forte has been working with talented contractors and ambitious architects and providing the most spectacular customer service possible.

In a report by Rutgers, Boraie Development’s 30 year track record has granted them a much-deserved reputation as leaders in New Brunswick, who are committed to property management and to understanding the complex realities of the real estate market and how that market impacts New Jersey and News Brunswick.

Bernardo Chua Continues to Expand His Organo Gold

Bernardo Chua has continued to expand Organo Gold’s global reach by opening a branch in Turkey. The opening of that branch brought the total countries the company does business in to thirty nine. This new opening is not just notable because of ticking another country off a list. Turkey was the first place to open a coffee house over five hundred years ago. This gives the country and coffee a strong and long standing relationship. It is likely that relationship is what motivated Chua to expand to Turkey. It appears that this is a country uniquely situated to appreciate the product his company has to offer.

CrunchBase writes that Chua started Organo in 2008 with the goal of combining the touted benefits of the Ganoderma mushroom with the popularity of coffee. He did not limit the product line to coffee and made sure tea and hot chocolate fans could enjoy the benefits as well. The mushroom is a part of traditional Asian medicine where it was once considered the highest ranking herb. Chua managed to fuse that tradition with modern sensibilities in a way designed to leave customers happy.

The relatively recent start of the company makes its presence in thirty nine countries even more impressive. Chua was no stranger to marketing as he had extensive experience before bringing Organo into being. That experience gave the company the boost it needed to bring its products to the active consumers who could best appreciate them. His experience with multi-level marketing and the distributors that make such a company thrive clearly was not wasted in his Organo endeavours. It will be interesting to see where he brings Organo Gold to next.  Read more about Bernardo on Wikipedia.
