b2ap3_thumbnail_GuyScottPresidentZambia.jpgOn Wednesday, October 29, 2014, Zambia’s Vice President, Guy Scott, has been appointed President of Zambia, hence becoming the first post independence African white head of state. He has replaced the late Zambian President Michael Chilufya Sata, following the death of the latter in London on October 28, 2018.

Although his appointment is temporary, the fact that he is white in an African democratic independent country make him a first. The only other white heads of state were either under apartheid in South Africa or during colonial times.

The US stock market has experienced a period of high market uncertainty and volatility, with the major stock indices  experiencing abrupt declines.   The uncertainty that started in September has continued in October 2014, fueled by major events around the World. Some of the major events that created uncertainty include  the Middle East wars, the unresolved Ukraine crisis, the declining oil prices, the slowing Chinese economy, the sluggish European economies, and recently, the Ebola epidemic.  By mid October, the stock market had recorded an unprecedented decline in major indices and had erased almost all the gains accumulated since the beginning of the year.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Carl_c_Icahn_AppleLetterOct92014.jpgOutspoken self declared activist investor Carl Icahn has published an open letter to Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, urging him to buy back a large chuck of Apple stocks in order to popup the price. According to Carl Icahn, the stock of Apple is undervalued and could fall to below $95.00 if the buy back does not happen.  He believes that, if rightly valued, Apple's share price should be around $203.

b2ap3_thumbnail_BloombergAttheWhiteHouse2.jpgIt was announced today that the business magnate and former New York Major, Michael Bloomberg,  has decided to return to lead his business empire, Blooomberg, L.P. The decision was made only 8 months after he finished his third term as New York mayor. While some had thought that the 72 year-old Michael Bloomberg would focus on charity work and other ventures outside his company, those who know him better must alwas have believed it was only a matter of time, before he decides to reoccupy his chair.

The United States economy grew faster than previously thought in the second quarter of 2014, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, August 28, 2014. The latest numbers confirm the signs of a sustainable growth and the continued positive outlook of the US economy. Reacting to the news, President Obama expressed his satisfaction and said that “companies are investing, consumers are spending...There are reasons to feel good about the direction that we are headed"

The growth was fueled by several factors including manufacturing, increased investment by businesses, and foreign trade.

b2ap3_thumbnail_US_AfricaSummit_Aug2-6-2014.jpegThe end of an era is here: after spending the last two decades trying to expand their businesses  and make money in BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, and China),  the World, rather the American, international investors appear to have shifted their focus: the motto may now be "It is Africa Stupid!".   In fact, Africa is where the money is to be made. The point was hightlighted during the US-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington. The Summit, attended by 50 African heads of states, was unprecedented: in its attendance, in setting a new tone for US-Africa relations and its expectations.

President Obama put it clearly in his speech on Tuesday, August 5, 2014:"I want Africans buying more American products. I want Americans buying more African products."

Why, this change after two decades of absence?

FED Chairwoman Yellen has said it and the lead indicators confirm it: the US Economy and the Financial Markets are finally back and solidifying. In June 2014, the US Economy has added, according to the government, 288,000 jobs. This means that, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 6 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.4 million. And that uptake in jobs is by far the strongest  growth in the last decade. 

Unemployment has amazingly stayed at 6.1% over the last few months, the levels that would satisfy even the most pessimistic economists: 6.1% has long been considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

AroniSmartInvest™ In Action Points to  Signs of Markets Recovery and Strengthening.

The consensus is there: the US Economy is doing better, with a but... What is missing is the agreement on what that "but" is. Even Yellen, the FED Chairwoman, though confident in the fact that the lead economic indicators are pointing to a growing and solidifying US Economy and the Financial Markets,  remains cautious. In fact, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 7 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.6 million. The uptake in jobs is by far the strongest growth in the last decade. In the last week of July 2014, jobless claims  fell by 14,000 to a seasonally-adjusted 289,000.  July was the sixth consecutive month that the U.S. Economy added 200,000 or more jobs, although the unemployment rate edged up in July to 6.2%  from 6.1%, due most likely to more workers joining the labor force.

In the previous months, unemployment had amazingly stayed at 6.1%, considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

AroniSmartInvest™ In Action has been pointing and continue to confirm signs of markets recovery and strengthening, despite investors' hesitation

Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos is one of the longest serving African leaders. The 71 years old leader, in power since 1979, has said that this is his last term in office. Rights groups and independent observers have accused him of personalized and autocratic rule and sometimes of corruption. His daughter, the businesswoman and investor Isabel Dos Santos considered by Forbes to be the richest woman in Africa and the most powerful and richest woman in her country. She owns several businesses in Angola, Portugal, and the Netherlands.

But although she appears to have benefited from being the first daughter of Angola, those close to her  do not question her business acumen and her entrepreneurial spirit since she graduated from the UK elite school of King's College.
