Investment Guru, Paul Mampilly Eyes Farming Robots

In a speech at this year’s Total Wealth Symposium, Paul Mampilly, editor of Profits Unlimited, and dedicated a stock analysts said that more investors should be embracing the new trend of farming robots.Remote-controlled harvesters, fully automated fertilizing systems, viticulture robots are the new reality in agriculture. The applied technology is limited to automated steering systems that make the work easier for the drivers, but there are also other ideas in the works. The idea of many small agricultural robots instead of several large machines. The autonomously working mini-robots, for example, will plant independently, as well as monitor and take care of the harvest.

In addition to such prototypes, as Paul Mampilly points out, are tangible machines and newer developments in use, which work in different degrees of automation and replace the farmer and employees.Approaches to automation, in different intensity levels, exist today in almost all areas of agriculture. Not only on the field are farmers now experimenting with thinking technology, but also in animal husbandry and vegetable growing robots are being used.Mampilly has spoken of various ways automated employees are replacing traditional people, and various ways investors should be thinking of how to make money in this industry. For one, says Paul Mampilly, investors should looking at the companies building this technology.

Examples of robotic agricultural systems include:

  • With automatic milking systems, more cows are milked in a much shorter time. At the same time, the system captures the data of each cow and evaluates them. Milk that does not meet the quality requirements will be sorted out automatically.
  • Robots also pick various items that make up salads, and does the work of 20 field workers.
  • There are also automatic feed systems in cow and other animal pens. Each cow is identified by transponders and supplied with the specified amount of feed and the individual food composition.

Automation is still in its infancy in many areas, and so is field technology, but as Paul Mampilly points out, the more accurately agricultural machines are controlled, the more advantages arise for the farmer, and this emerging technology is ripe for investors.Paul Mampilly is an editor for a host of widely popular investment newsletters like Profits Unlimited, and Rapid Profit Trader.

Oh Dear, Doe Deere!

It’s arguably the plot of a gorgeous American Dream. Despite a mask of gorgeous make-up, Doe Deere (born Xenia Vorotova) has been transparent about the pock-marked path that led to her polished image. A native of Russia, Deere immigrated to the United States with her mother and sister at the curious age of 17.

Deere understood that New York City is a fashion mecca though it can be harshly unforgiving to new arrivals as the Vorotova family was destined to discover. Deere and her family started at the very bottom of the barrel and despite enough work ethic and determination to power the city, their humble foundation meant an introduction to a homeless shelter in Manhattan soon after their arrival.

Not to be thwarted, Deere’s family graciously accepted the assistance of a not-for-profit organization that specializes in assisting female immigrants in dire situations: Sanctuary for Families. This boost included the crucial support of a social worker that saw to it that Deere’s mother get a well-paying job and helped Deere get into the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Doe Deere can attribute much of her success to her attitude towards hardship which is one of acceptance: hardship is inevitable and not an excuse to quit. But it is also her humility and gratitude towards those who helped her along the way that paints a picture of someone destined to stand firmly on her own two feet and help others get there too.

In 2008, Deere founded her cosmetic company Lime Crime. The company, boasting cruelty-free, Vegan options for exciting, fairy tale color and outlandish self-expression, employs more than 35 people in Los Angeles and continues to make an impact on the cosmetic world. It’s their birthday year and a decade into this adventure, Doe Deere is proving that unicorns do exist!

Jacob Gottlieb Altium

When it comes to top executives in the healthcare industry, few people have the name recognition that Jacob Gottlieb has. While he gained fame as one of the founders of Visium Asset Management, he has since moved on to form a brand new healthcare investment firm by the name of Altium Capital. He found great success with his past firm and is now aiming to replicate his success with this new venture.

Gottlieb actually became interested in the world of finance at a rather young age. While in high school, he became the winner in a contest dealing with faux stock picks. This ignited his lifelong interest in the field and was most certainly a key to his success. He already possessed a remarkably powerful work ethic and was blessed with the support of parents.

Gottlieb graduated near the top of his class at Brown University, attaining the honors of Magna Cum Laude. He at first thought he wanted to become a professional in the field of medicine but decided against it after finishing an internship at New York University Medical School. It was after this experience that he realized his true passion was finance. He focused his efforts on conquering Wall Street after this.

He began his actual business career at the firm of Bernstein & Co. He continued his relentless pursuit of education and achieved his Certified Financial Analyst degree while working at this firm. He quickly saw that he could gain new career heights by moving on and found himself newly employed at the Merlin Biomed Group. He didn’t stay long there however and moved to Balyasny Asset Management where he found even greater fame. After a number of years there, he finally joined the company of Visium in 2005.

There is no doubt that with all of his past success he will find even more at his new venture. It seems that no matter where he goes, he finds his skills and expertise truly shine.

David Zalik takes big risks, ultimately prevails with GreenSky

Many of the greatest entrepreneurs in history are known today due to their willingness to do things and take on risks that others could not or would not face. David Zalik, the founder and CEO of GreenSky , is a good example. Zalik, 44, risked literally everything he had more than 12 years ago to found the company that today ranks as one of the most important firms in the fintech sector. It was Zalik’s unique combination of certitude, willingness to take big risks and, somewhat paradoxically, deep business conservatism that have defined the success of GreenSky .

Now, as the company mulls an IPO that some analysts are saying may be worth as much as $10 billion, the world is watching to see what the next step for GreenSky  will be. But as many who have closely observed the firm over the course of its history will point out, the GreenSky business model itself has not changed much from its earliest days. It has just proven to be so versatile that the company appears to be doing radical new things when, in fact, it is simply applying the same solution to a wide variety of different industries.



Big moves for a small company

When Zalik first conjured the idea behind GreenSky  based on his years of working in the home improvement business, he had difficulty finding a bank willing to lend him the startup capital needed to get his venture off the ground. Eventually, this problem became intractable. Desperate, Zalik effectively reverse mortgaged his entire $12 million commercial real estate fortune and poured every cent of it into his new business.

This risky all-in move at a time when his company had barely registered as a corporation would prove to be one of the best bets in American industry over the last two decades. By 2018, GreenSky was worth in excess of $4 billion. Zalik’s vision of creating a seamless way to provide retail-level bridge financing for big-ticket items has been roundly vindicated. GreenSky’s soaring valuation provides evidence of how farsighted Zalik’s original bet really was.
