Celebrating in Style with OG Juan and Jay Z

When you hit certain milestones in your life they are definitely deserving of a night out on the town. However, for most of us, a night out on the town probably wouldn’t include a 100K evening complete with 4 dozen bottles of champagne and dinner at a 5-star restaurant. Then again, Roc Nation Sports president OG Juan and rap mogul Jay Z aren’t really like the rest of us in terms of fame, success, and money. But who is this mysterious OG Juan person who showed up in a viral picture celebrating his 50th birthday with Sean Carter at a swanky New York City nightclub? Perhaps a little bit of history will help introduce OG Juan to us.

OG Juan grew up in Harlem where he was immersed in the music culture from a young age. As he grew up he developed a love of both music and music production which would end up serving him well in adulthood. He had a small recording studio in the neighborhood where he would produce local talent as he built his business reputation. Then, in 1996 OG Juan was introduced to a young Sean Carter through Roc A Fella co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke.

Their relationship developed from a business to friendship and to this day both OG Juan and Sean Carter are close friends who share family outings together.With this background, it’s easy to see why that picture of Jay Z and OG Juan hanging out exists as well as the exorbitant cost of OG Juan party. But don’t get confused and think Hova paid the tab for his longtime friend. A few weeks after the party Mr. Carter is quoted as saying that OG Juan actually paid for the entire evening himself. This leads the rest of us to wonder just how much money does the Roc Nation empire and its executives have.

Ted Bauman Warns investors about Amazons Volatility

Ted Bauman is the editor of The Bauman Letter, Plan B Club, Alpha Stock Alert. Prior to Joining Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013, Bauman spent 25 years in South Africa where he served in many executive positions for nonprofit organizations. During his time in South Africa, he also founded Slum Dwellers International, a non-profit organization which provides low-income housing solutions while aiding in infrastructure delivery with a primary emphasis on water and sanitation. Lately, Bauman has been warning investors about Trump’s trade war as well as the overall profitability of Amazon in relation to the actual facts.

Trump’s trade war has signaled some major changes to US investor’s holdings in multinationals. Ted Bauman believes that if the trade war continues, it may lead to the bull market being stonewalled with the looming threat of war. “Bull Markets” Bauman claims “end not as much from age as from changes in monetary or fiscal policy.” Due to Trump’s rhetoric, countries like China and Canada are gearing up for retaliatory measures. Canada, for example, has started refusing products that were manufactured in the United States. The tariffs are also affecting American exports, especially in steel and soybeans. Bauman believes that in light of these facts, it is important that investors position themselves accordingly.

Furthermore, Ted Bauman is warning investors about Amazon’s investment structure as the company doesn’t pay dividends but uses the extra revenue to purchase other businesses. The reasoning behind this investment strategy is the company’s desire to introduce new products and services. Bauman claims that these business practices may pose a substantial risk as traders can only profit from this type of investment by selling it. This situation presents the added risk of stockholders dumping Amazon shares at the first sign of trouble. Bauman believes investors should be cautious with Amazon stocks as their value may continue to drop in the coming months. To know more about him click here.
