The stock market has taken investors on a wild ride throughout 2018. A market that had featured historically low volatility for the previous two years has seen volatility and all of its nasty effects come roaring back. At the same time, the market was in negative territoryfor the year as late as the 10th month of the fiscal year, representing a level of underperformance that hasn’t been seen in a decade and possibly signaling the end of the bull market.
But Shervin Pishevar, one of the most prominent venture capitalists in the world today, says that this development is not the slightest bit surprising. In fact, Shervin Pishevar had predicted way back in February that the stock market would ultimately end up lower in 2018 that it had begun. Shervin Pishevar has consistently been sounding the alarms against the Fed’s open market operations and the consequences that such actions have had both on the equity and bond markets. He says that the can-kicking policies of the Federal Reserve have made the current economic situation worse than it would have otherwise been. Investors now face a situation where their current bond portfolios could soon lose massively at the same time that equities plummet.
Stocks are historic overvaluations
Shervin Pishevar says that the stock market hasreached a point of historic overvaluation. This has been heavily and directly influenced by the policies of the nation’s central bank. Through driving interest rates and bond yields through the floor, the Fed has encouraged massive levels of corporate stock buybacks.
At the same time, it has forced investors to chase yields wherever they can be found. In this case, investors have piled into equities, driving the prices of the U.S. equity markets through the roof. Pishevar says that this will eventually cause an inevitable correction as bonds begin to rise. But this will spell double trouble for those who currently own both bonds and stocks.
Current bonds, with their extremely low yields, could lose a great deal of value just as equities are also crashing. Pishevar says that this could cause a great deal of pain among investors in the months to come.

New technology created by GE Aviation make it possible to optimize fuel efficiency Jason Hope says. Data is collected, then analyzed to help save on fuel cost including several different factors. Since the world is becoming more environmentally-friendly, this is good news for our planet. They analysis terrain conditions, navigation routes, trajectory, and of course weather to save on fuel. When it comes to baggage, they have smart technology that allows passengers to know exactly where their baggage is. This will drastically reduce the amount of lost baggage. From dropping off baggage to receiving it, passengers can track it from their smart phones. There is also new technology that can route your bags to the nearest carousel to you. Often times, people have to get to the airport hours ahead of their flight to stand it line forever to get their ticket. With the Internet of Things, people can print out their ticket from their email 24 hours ahead of their flight, so they can bypass the long lines. They will also receive the seating arrangements at the same time so passengers will know their seat position. That really takes the stress out of flying!
Jason Hope believes this new technology also helps passengers at the airport. A wrist band or smart phone can alert the flyer whether they are walking in the wrong direction of their gate, or to book it so they don’t miss their flight. This can be incredibly helpful when people fly from a new and unfamiliar airport. Technology has created sensors on every part of the aircraft for safety reasons. They let personnel know about routine maintenance, how the airplane is performing, and so much more. They even have smart technology that checks on the safety of their life jackets.

Bitcoin may be experiencing some issues, but according to financial experts like early Uber investor Shervin Pishevar, it may be headed for an upswing soon. While he predicts that the United States economy will fall a drastic amount, he still holds hope for the global economy. According to Shervin Pishevar, the United States’ tradition of isolationism will be largely responsible for the economic collapse.
Inflation is running rampantaccording to Pishevar. While the US may have been able to conceal just how bad it is becoming by essentially exporting the inflation elsewhere, the truth will soon be revealed. These predictions were released to the public by Shervin Pishevar during 50 consecutive Tweets. The 21-hour marathon that took place in February was the first that he had been seen on social media since December 2017. Truly a man of many words, these Tweets surprised even his closest followers.
While Bitcoin has been in the news lately for its substantial drop in price, Shervin Pishevar sees this turning around once the economy crashes. He believes that they will stay stable between the $2k and $5k mark before starting to rise steadily over 2 years. He also sees good things for the price of gold and expects it to rise as well. So while the Uber investor does have predictions indicating that the market will drop by thousands of points, he does see opportunities to see returns even before the economy rebounds.
In the case of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg admitted to using the data collected from users in an inappropriate way that was not agreed to. These types of abuses of power are quickly causing users to start losing their trust and potentially discontinuing the use of their services. Apple has also been in hot water over allegedly slowing down iPhones to encourage the purchase of newer models.
Since Shervin Pishevar released his Tweetstorm, his predictions have begun getting second looks by experts in the financial industry. Only weeks after his posting, the stock market did see a significant drop. With all of the similarities between reality and his predictions, his Tweetstoem may not be that far off from the truth.

Did you know that many of today’s most popular food retailors use the same foodservice provider? For example, Burger King and McDonald’s have used the same food provider for their beef products, but these two hamburger shops have completely different tastes. This is the beauty of custom-foods as you can manipulate the foods’ ingredients to get a completely different end-product. One of the leading companies in the world that specializes in this field of work is OSI Group. This American-born food provider has been around since 1909, and it was actually started by a German Immigrant. Lets take a closer look at to why this food-giant dominates the competition.
OSI Group was once known as Otto & Sons back in the day. The Midwest region of the United States had the best meat market in the area. The company’s name comes from its actual owner Otto Kolschowki. This extraordinary guy has built a lasting legacy thanks to his fresh beef and great service. McDonald’s was one of its first high-profile clients. As cryogenics came unto the scene, this hamburger restaurant retained its close business-friendship with Otto & Sons by naming the company as one of its four major, meat suppliers. As of today, OSI Group has contracts with many popular restaurant-chains such as Burger King, Subway, Yum, Starbucks, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s Pizza. Foods, foods and more foods. OSI Group produces items such as:
This only scratches the surface to what OSI can produce. Consumers are delighted by these concept-to-table solutions. The foods are made of high-quality ingredients, and they are very diverse. The company is always striving to improve on weaknesses. It would be very hard trying to find another food provider with this much class, experience and clout. All in all, OSI Group is simply exceeding its hype and there is a long list of clients that will backup all claims.
