UK FCA Hints At XRP Potentially Being An Exchange Utility Token Hybrid, Non Security

As the cryptocurrency space continues to expand, regulators are also expanding their powers and beginning to crack down. Many regulators are starting to understand the widespread adoption that’s occurring in cryptocurrency and Blockchain.

When any sort of technology evolves to the masses, the regulatory industry will surely be involved.

Bitcoin Reverses Sentiment From 2018, Outperforming Markets in 2019

Bitcoin has been in the news frequently in 2019 as its showed much promise. The emerging asset class came off a brutal year in 2018 and some called it the end to Bitcoins future. With the Bitcoin community being so large, this price action did not faze many people who still believed in the long-term value of Bitcoin. Industry followers and enthusiasts continued to label Bitcoin as “undervalued” and price deflating due to short-term news developments and uncertainties. In less than a year, Bitcoin fell from $19,783 in December 2017 to $5,500 in November 2018. After much scrutiny, Bitcoin was able to recover in what some are calling the “strongest recovery in market history.” The sell-off last year was hard to swallow, but many who were “dollar cost averaging” on the way down have done extremely well this year. Some of the developments that pushed down Bitcoin were:

Geo Group Bonds, Short Term, High Yield, Fixed Income Investment, Yielding 8% YTM

This week, Durig Capital looks at a company providing private prison services for governmental agencies both domestically and abroad. Geo Group, Inc. (NYSE:GEO) is one of only a handful of private prison service companies. With the election of President Trump, private prison companies have gotten a boost due to more stringent prosecutions as directed by our new attorney general, as well as Trump’s zero tolerance policies on immigration. The company’s first quarter 2019 results reflect this new political climate (above).

Geo Group is awaiting decisions from the Federal Bureau of Prisons on two procurements (CAR 18 and CAR 19) that total close to 12,000 beds. If these decisions come back in favor of Geo Group, the company would likely again increase its current guidance (as it just did with the release of its first quarter results). Geo Group’s 2023 bonds, couponed at 5.125%, are currently trading at a discount, giving them an enticing yield-to-maturity of over 9%. With the most recent increase in guidance and the possibility of more on the way, these short-term maturity bonds (maturing in only 44 months) are an ideal addition to Durig Capital’s Fixed Income 2 (FX2) High Yield Managed Income Portfolio, the aggregated performance of which is shown below.

Apple is Modernizing MacBooks While Lowering Its Price

This rarely happens: Apple has improved one of its MacBooks while lowering its price. Another was upgraded by an omission, and a third was removed from the offer.

The so-called back-to-school season is just beginning in the USA. The term refers to the time at the end of summer vacation, when students cover themselves with new material for the coming school year or semester. US corporations always accompany these times with special discounts – and sometimes with new products.

Should You Invest in Silver? Is Now a Good Time to Buy?

Precious metals have always been a popular investment among those looking for a hedge against inflation or for a way to decrease the volatility of their portfolios. Although silver is not commonly seen as a high yield investment, it can actually be quite profitable. If you bought silver in July of 2009, when it was worth around $13 an ounce, and sold it in April of 2011, when it was worth $47 an ounce, you would have pocketed a 260% return on your investment over 21 months.

Gran Colombia Gold Bonds or “Gold Notes”, Short Term, High Yield, Fixed Income Investment, Yielding 8% YTM

Beyond Belief… this may be the most fascinating debt instrument we have ever reviewed.

Rising with the price of gold, the cash flow and yield of Gran Colombia Gold’s senior secured “Gold Notes” appears to be headed straight into the land of unbelief.  Perhaps what we see here is either wrong… or something in this picture seems to have quietly escaped the attention or the view of most other investors in the high yield bond market.  Granted, this is not a straightforward and easily understood issue because of the quarterly interest boost linked to its amortized quarterly redemption of principle when the price of gold is higher 1250 per ounce.  However, it is precisely this “hard to be understood” feature that is driving its current push into the land of dreams.

Gold Moves Up Big; Is This the Beginning of a Monster Move, or a Dead Cat Bounce?

First, why is gold moving up?

We talked with experts and they explain the dollar is weakening. They are pricing in rate cuts they expect to U.S. interest rates. Donald Trump lashed out at the Federal Reserve, comparing it to ‘a stubborn child.’ He and the stock market are pushing for lower rates. As rates appear to be going down, gold historically moves in the opposite direction of U.S. currency. This downward push in dollars is pushing gold up.

Is gold being pushed out by cryptocurrencies?

Libra Cryptocurrency Could Be the Ultimate Winner – Bitcoin and Ethereum Have Deffects

Blockchain backed by Facebook and other big companies wants to be more reliable and mainstream than established cryptocurrencies. From technical points to governance, here is what Libra cryptocurrency proposes:

Libra cryptocurrency marks a milestone in the history of cryptocurrency: never before has such a currency been designed and supported, not by one, but by 28 companies, many of which are world-renowned. In a world fraught with frauds, bugs, and cyber fraud, some could see Libra as the first final “frequentable” cryptocurrency. It is true that it is built around stability as a mantra, even if it means sacrificing this decentralization that made the eyes of blockchain activists shine.

Dogs of the Dow: Durig’s Past Performance Runs Ahead of the Pack

This week, Durig Capital explores a popular variation of the classic Dogs of the Dow investment strategy, introduced by Michael O Higgins in the early 1990’s.  The strategy has been widely accepted by some for its simplicity and repeatability, yet denounced by others for the exact same.

Explore Over 17% YTM with California Resources Corporation, Bonds Mature September 2021

This week, Durig Capital takes a look at a unique oil and gas producer. California Resources Corporation (CRC) produces oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) strictly within the state of California. Most people know that California is one of the largest states (physically) in the U.S. But most probably don’t know that it represents the world’s 5th largest economy. Against this backdrop, CRC produces oil, natural gas and NGLs and sells all of it in the state of California. This looks to be a great situation for CRC – a local buyer for all of its product and a huge appetite for more. CRC, a spinoff of Occidental Petroleum in 2014, has spent the past few years recovering from the oil doldrums of 2016 and it looks to be on the upswing. Some of the highlights from its most recent quarterly results in bullet points above.
