  1. Hi Jaffray,

    I wanted to reach out to see if you might have interest in discussing the following …

    My partner and I are looking for a seed partner, or capital raising partner, to launch a fund that will take advantage of what we think is a game-changing theme in the early stages — yen hedged, small cap Japan.

    We have a very compelling investment thesis driven by the role that BOJ policy will have in creating a sustainable global economic recovery. Within that, we think the policy shift is powerful enough to meaningfully impact global imbalances and suppress the trajectory of China’s ascent as an economic power. Most importantly, it comes with full support of the major global central banks, as Japan has all of the ingredients to do what the other global economic powers have been unable to do in this environment (devalue) – with that, a reflating Japan can help everyone’s cause (except EM exporters, in the short run).

    In short, we think this is the trade of the decade (if not bigger). We think Japanese stocks can go to new highs in five years, and Japanese small cap stocks will create tremendous wealth (producing multiples of Nikkei returns).

    For your guide, we have very strong, documented research track record on macro calls, as well as special situation and small cap equities. And we both have extensive backgrounds in key investment roles at top performing hedge funds.

    In addition, I developed a quantitative and systematic FX model back in 2005 that is low vol, low drawdown and has 10 years of testing history — 10% annualized return with a sharp of 1.75. I launched a fund in 2007 with an $8 mio seed investment but lost funding after seven months due to the economic environment (+7.2% through nine months).

    We are looking for a seed partner to capitalize each strategy in exchange for a significant equity stake in the management company.

    Would appreciate a chance to chat sometime if you might have interest in discussing.

    Best,

  4. The player who can accumulate the highest number of points at the end of the selected number of rounds is the winner. You must give a diplomatic answer, which neither means yes nor denies the possibility, and this would be your chance of re-entering her life and getting her back. Many games can be played absolutely free which obviously makes them extremely popular for people of all different ages not just the younger generation.

  5. I was just searching for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.

  6. Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is really irritating. A good blog with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this web site, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

  7. De hecho en España hay una compañía de color naranja muy famosa entre locutorios por no aplicar bloqueos de IMEI: Un teléfono bloqueado por una compañía roja azul funciona en la naranja una vez liberado. Prefiero ser yo que decida como, cuando y con que aplicación borro los datos remotamente a que esa funcionalidad me venga en un SO cerrado del que no sabes si ellos podrían hacerlo si tu consentimiento. Ademas samsung tiene un servicio online para bloquear el movil y borrar todos los datos remotamente. En otro caso acudiremos lo más pronto posible a su domicilio a reparar su electrodoméstico.

  8. En el Servicio Técnico Siemens en Sot de Chera recomendamos que ante una vería de su aparato actúe con cautela, ya que puede empeorar el estado de este y encarecer la reparación.

  9. Jaffray….

    I love your slogan about simplicity.

    I’m an LA based film producer and currently have a film in development that I am looking to attach executive producers or investors to our team.

    The Story:
    The story is based on a device called the God Helmet which is a real helmet that was developed in the 90s by a famous neuroscientist. What’s interesting about this helmet is that people have claimed to have religious experiences wearing this device. Hearing about this device and its effects really intrigued my business partner and I and we began to explore how we could take this concept and weave it into a narrative film.

    Let me know if you would like me to send you the business plan!

  11. Vi jugar a Pirri, Breitner, Camacho en sus inicios, a Netzer, todavía tengo recuerdos de un Madrid Velencia en el que jugaba Kempes y en el que el Madrid le dio la vuelta a una liga igualadísima muy parecida a la que ha ganado este año, me hicieron Socio y a partir de ese momento no faltaba un Domingo a para ver al Madrid. Las comodidades incluyen frigorífico y sofá cama, además de un servicio de limpieza disponible todos los días.
