Brightline recently announced its new passenger train that will serve the Miami-Fort Lauderdale route. This announcement was not only good for the Florida based company, but also the Fortress Investment Group. This is because they own Brightline and had been counting on its success as part of their transport infrastructure investment. The new trains that are American built will take 35 mins and charge ten dollars for a one-way ticket. This will offer commuters reduced travel time will significantly cut down on the cost of travel. The company has been determined to expand its presence in the Miami area given its success on other routes within it.
The Fortress Investment group, their parent company, was established in 1998 by three partners. They were determined to build an investment vehicle that they would use to generate and grow wealth in the best way they knew how. Given their backgrounds in finance and private equity, it is easy to see why they chose this route. Within the first five years, they had managed to grow the resources within the group sixfold. This was 2002, and they quickly realized that with the existing investment opportunities they needed a credit division that would serve as their investment vehicle in this area as well as the valuation and validation of investments before they were made.
Wes Edens, one of the three founders, had a unique investment style. He was known for finding undervalued or distressed assets and investing in the same. This was one of the reasons they needed another strong partner who they found in Peter Briger. He had a solid background in the management of distressed assets. He was, in fact, an advisor at the International Finance Corporation on the same. He would work together with Edens to secure these investments and ensure that the Fortress Investment Group only got the best deals.
In 2017 Soft Bank the Tokyo based investment bank came calling. The Bank was willing to offer a forty percent premier per share and acquire The Fortress Investment Group for 3.3 billion. This offer was submitted to the group’s shareholders for approval. The approval was granted mid last year, and Soft Bank was free to release the cash. The acquisition by Soft Bank is expected to make the group stronger given their financial might something that the founding partners and principals are excited about. The group is now entirely private and no longer listed on the NYSE.
A lot has been said about Matt Badiali recently. He was the founder of a new type of investment which experts didn’t see at the time. Even without having a degree in Business or Finances he made one of the greatest investment moves back in 2008 when he purchased stocks from energy companies for $0.06 a share making about 4,400 percent on them two years later.
Since then, Matt Badiali has been dealing with stocks and future trends that could have the same potential as his first discovery. Up until recently, he has been focusing on energy companies and minerals that could become the next big market. However, his latest advice targets a market that is, no questions about it, a grey area for a lot of people. On his twitter, he posted about what he considers will be the next biggest market to appear in recent years, the Cannabis market.
The Cannabis market has been around for centuries and it was a topic which was frowned upon by the majority of the population. However, in recent years, with the development of the medical use of Cannabis, people started looking at it in a new light. And what was once considered one of the worst drugs in the world, is now one of the most promising medical discoveries.
The impact of the medical use of Cannabis has been changing the way the plant is seen throughout the world, with countries like Portugal, Holland and new to this list Canada, approving the recreational use across their nations. According to Matt Badiali, the fact that Canada is now approving and regulating recreational use of Cannabis can affect the way its nearest neighbor, the United States, perceives the market.
While some states have already passed the recreational law, like California and Colorado, others are still at the initial stage of just barely accepting the medicinal use, though that could change drastically depending on how well the change affects Canada. Truth is Matt Badiali has Cannabis as his newest and most prolific advice and if we look at his track record, it would be safe to say that this has the potential to change the investment market once again.
