REPOST: Scenes, Some Lawmakers Lobby to Change the Volcker Rule


As regulators put the finishing touches on new rules for Wall Street, they remain entangled in a partisan fight over the overhaul.

In public letters and closed-door meetings, more than 100 lawmakers have lobbied the Federal Reserve and other authorities over the Volcker Rule, records show. The rule, intended to restrict banks from placing risky trades and investing with hedge funds, has drawn an outcry from Republicans who want to mute its effect and some Democrats who want to strengthen it.

Lions share of Funders Club’s investors invest in “Funders Club”


GOOD: Accredited Investor website fund companies with crowd funding like strategy;

BAD: No sure how many investors in Funders Club used the website;

UGLY:  Not sure if website has investors or at the end of the day directs its investors to use the plateform;

BOTTOMLINE:  Funders Club’s logo is a male lion; but got long way to go to establish itself as the alpha male of accredited investor crowd funding.

Since its launch three weeks ago, Funders Club has raised over $1 million for startups.

Funders Club is a platform where accredited investors can access an inventory of vetted, early-stage companies. The startups publish comprehensive profiles on the site, along with a fundraising goal. Members have the opportunity to make small, equity investments in companies that appeal to them.

Forbes says “Good Riddance To Obama’s Regulatory Czar”


GOOD: College professor goes back to school!
BAD: He was frequently at odds with EPA (we need somebody like this!)
UGLY: Czar job was not to cut all red tape!
BOTTOMELINE: It is a dream to believe Regulator Czar could cut read tape in Washington!

In August 2011, Sunstein announced rule changes that supposedly would “save U.S. businesses billions of dollars in regulatory burdens.”  Read more: http://www.forbes.com/sites/henrymiller/2012/08/08/good-riddance-to-obamas-regulatory-czar/

What goes up, sometime blows up! “Faceplant” for UBS!


GOOD: Stock goes up!

BAD: Stock goes down!

UGLY: UBS $356 million, loss connected to the botched Facebook initial public offering. Net profit down 58 percent and stock down!

BOTTOMLINE:  Sometime you land on your face, but it better than something blowing up ( i.e. bankruptcy ).  Stocks like Facebook will continue to go up and down!

UBS reported on Tuesday a 58 percent decline in its net profit in the second quarter as a fall in investment banking income weighed on the Swiss bank. Read more at NY Times at: http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/07/31/ubs-profit-hit-after-loss-on-facebook-ipo/

Not in Rome (China Insider Trading Normal?)


GOOD:  The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint

BAD:  In China, insider trading is just one manifestation of a widely accepted insider culture.

UGLY: Insider trading is alive and well in many markets and countries

BOTTOMLINE:  Interesting things can happen in international deals.  As always international = risk

 

Chinese companies call for fairer treatment from foreigners. China’s critics say that these companies still don’t play by the accepted global rules of capital markets. The accusation of insider trading around the $15 billion bid by Chinese oil major CNOOC for the Canadian producer Nexen supports the critics.

Millions reason to explore crowdfunding! (or Amanda & Pebble)


GOOD: Kickstart has several million dollar success stories!

BAD: Like more deals, less than half of Kickstart deals get funded (i.e. zero dollars)!

UGLY:  Regulation from JOBS could cause issues for current market!

BOTTOMLINE: If your raising capital, crowdfunding could be your answer (key word is could)!  Bring your friends to kickstart the process or marketing plan is key!

one in million (or WSJ and VCs take potshot at Crowdfunding)


Bookmark and Share

GOOD: Crowd Funding has many great stories (Pebble Tech on KickStart just one in million!);

BAD:  It only takes on big negative story to leave a negative mark;

UGLY: WSJ and VC call for Pebble Tech on KickStart as the test for crowdfunding vs. looking at all the other success stories.

BOTTOMLINE:  Crowdfunding works and lets hope the SEC and Pebble Watch does not do damage to the industry!

Peeble Watch not for Dick Tracy

AND NOW FOR THE NEWS:

Need friends to Kickstart your Crowdfunding?


Bookmark and Share

GOOD: Need money for a causes to equity for start ups? Crowdfunding to the rescue!

BAD: Ask and you will receive still needed vs. post and you will receive (need marketing);

UGLY: Asking friend and family to be first funders is key funding with Crowdfunding (as with any capital raise)!

BOTTOMLINE:  Crowdfunding works, but you need marketing to help get the deal off the ground. “Friends & Family” to getting out the message that your raising money is still key.
