Leading Business and Finance Consultant Ian Dunlap Offers 2019 Investment Planning Advice
The following bylined article was written by Ian Jakovan Dunlap, founder of Hyper Acceleration.HOUSTON, Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Getting the best returns for 2019 comes down to a straightforward formula, and if followed you can generate a much higher return in the market. The adage "you can only generate 10-12% per year" is antiquated for most investors with the right system in place in 2019.1.         Buy 2 Index Funds: (SPY and DIA):An individual stock may go out of business, but an index fund will not. Since the S&P, Dow, and Nasdaq are not going to go out of existence any time soon, one of the best things you can do for your future is to invest long-term into an index fund and let time do the magic for you. An index fund is like an all-star team. So, while you may not pick the right stock on your own, the other stocks in your index fund will generally make up for poorly performing stocks.2.         Buy 2 Tech Stocks:The truth is, you don't need 40 stocks in your portfolio to get high returns in the market. It's often a huge mistake. It causes your gains to be hampered when some of the stocks in your portfolio are winning the others are losing which causes you to minimize your growth in your account. I suggest focusing on a total of four stocks that historically have been strong and continued to grow over time. Netflix, Amazon, and Google are great examples. Microsoft has also performed well as it went from $34.63 to a high of $106.16 in five years - a 306% gain in five years.Technology has ruled the American economy for the past 100 years. Ford's technological advantage was the assembly line.  Nowadays, we recognize Netflix's edge is their customer base that pays every month, and Apple's strengths are their dominant position and the smartphone market as well as their subscription model. Take advantage of the genius of these CEOs and their fantastic team and profit by investing in these companies.3.         Add more shares to your index funds and tech stocks EVERY SINGLE MONTH:The habit of doing this is even more important than anything. Whether a recession or bear market, you want to continue to invest because after the period ends, we usually see another robust bearish market. My long-standing thesis is that the market is rigged. In other words, it's engineered to stay up for long periods, and your children are going to need this money in 10, 20, or 30 years.4.         The One Asset You Should Be Using That Pays 100x More than Stocks: What if I told you there is an asset paying 100 times more than stocks, is entirely trustworthy, and a lot of professionals around the world already have been using it decades to get higher returns? Would you want to know what it is? Sadly, when I talk to people about investing 90% aren't using this asset in their portfolio to make money, and this asset is called futures.If you have 100 shares of Apple and it goes up $15, you will profit $1500. Not bad, but not enough to change your life or the trajectory of your family.If you have 100 shares (contracts) of S&P 500 futures and it goes to $12, you will profit $150,000, and in some cases, you can do this in less than a week. This scenario is an example of one of those hidden assets that almost no one knows about except a handful of people that are already generating exceptional gains in the market.5.         Short the market during times of crisis or a crash:Do you know you can make money when the market goes down right?I was in a meeting with an NBA player this October when the Dow dropped 800 points in one day. He asked, "why aren't you worried?" I said to him "you know you can make money when the market drops right?" The truth is he had no clue that this was even an option as I am pretty sure most people reading this don't know this is an option. When the market is poised to drop, I would recommend short the ES Future and the NQ future simultaneously. If you had 25 shares (contracts) of each and aimed for a $15 target for both, you would profit $65,000 in less than 24 hours. It will offset any bleeding that you are experiencing in your long-term account and will put a smile on your face while you're patiently waiting for the market to turn back up.Although the market always goes back up it is not fun to look at your long-term account and see it's down 15% or 25%, so this is a simple way you can profit when the market drops, and everyone is pessimistic. As Warren Buffett famously said, "be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful" and remember that the market is rigged to stay up.About Hyper AccelerationIan Jakovan Dunlap is founder of the boutique business and finance consultancy Hyper Acceleration in Houston.

Nubeva reports revenue of $266,875 SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2018 /CNW/ -- Nubeva Technologies Ltd. ("Nubeva" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NBVA, OTC: NBVAF), today published its unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended October 31, 2018 and 2017.

At October 31, 2018 the Company had 57 subscribers for Nubeva Prisms. As of December 12, 2018, customer engagement had grown to 94 subscribers. Randy Chou, Nubeva's CEO, said, "We're seeing the results from adjusting and iterating our product offerings to address a larger pipeline opportunity. Subscribers represent small corporations to larger enterprises at varying stages of deployment into their cloud, demonstrating Prisms' scalability across a large market segment. All resources are now focused on ensuring that we maximize customer adoption." Since the September release of Prisms there has been a short delay as customers deploy Prisms into their infrastructure, resulting in a time lag between customer adoption and revenue recognition. As customers expand their deployment of Prisms across more applications in their cloud the Company expects to see intrinsic revenue growth. Further, at the end of the most recent quarter the Company reported launching a direct digital marketing program designed to reach a broad market, from small to large organizations to drive recurring revenue growth. Financial Results: The Company reported revenue for the three months ended October 31, 2018 of $226,875, comprised $41,500 of subscription revenue (October 31, 2017 – Nil) and $185,375 of software and services revenue (October 31, 2017 - $115,000). Revenue for the six months ended October 31, 2018 was comprised $1,891,655 of software and services revenue and $60,000 from subscriptions. During the three and six month periods software and services revenues related to the development of the planned token network were $185,375 and $1,781,905 respectively. Subsequent to October 31, 2018 the Company ceased its activities with respect to the development of its previously announced token network. Expenses during the quarter ended October 31, 2018 were $754,668 from the Company's ongoing operations (October 31, 2017 - $490,652) and $322,120 related to the development of its token network (October 31, 2017 – Nil). Expenses are expected to increase in the two ensuing quarters of 2019 due to increased sales and marketing activities for the market acceleration of Nubeva Prisms.

Finance Attitude - 5 common types of financial swaps
5 Common Types of Financial Swaps
A swap is an act of exchanging one thing for another. In finance, swaps are derivatives wherein two counterparties exchange financial instruments. The swaps can involve an exchange of a series of cash flows of one party’s financial instrument for those of the other party’s financial instrument over a specific period of time. Swaps are mutual agreements that are easy to design and customize over the counter. They offer great flexibility that leads to many swap variations with each serving a given purpose. Reasons why parties agree to such arrangements: If their investments or repayment objectives change If it is beneficial financially to switch, to a new or alternative stream of cash flows compared to the existing ones To hedge against risks such as mitigation risks associated with a floating rate loan repayment. Here are the 5 common types of financial swaps: 1.    Interest Rate Swap This is the most popular type of swaps. An interest rate swap is a contract between two parties to exchange a stream of future interest payments based on the principal amount. The parties exchange floating interest rate for a fixed rate or vice versa to increase or reduce exposure to interest rates volatility to obtain a marginally lower rate than would have been possible without the swap. It can also involve the exchange of one floating rate for another and usually occurs only to change the type or tenor of the floating rate index usually called basis swap. It usually occurs if a company can obtain a loan easily at one type of interest rate but prefers a different type of rates. 2.    Currency Swaps Currency swaps involve the exchange of interest and in some cases of full exchange of principal amounts in one currency for the same but in another currency. It is also referred to as cross-currency swap as it involves foreign exchange transaction. It is a very flexible method of foreign exchange as maturities of the currency swaps are negotiable for at least 10 years. The interest rates can be floating or fixed and the exchange can be fixed vs. fixed, floating vs. floating and fixed vs. floating. The swap helps to hedge against interest rates and forex rates fluctuations for long-term investments. 3.     Commodity Swaps A commodity swap is a financial derivative agreement where two parties agree to exchange cash flows which are reliant on the underlying commodity price. This swap is most common among people who use raw materials to produce finished products. It is used to hedge against the price of a commodity. It consists of a floating-leg component and a fixed-leg component where the floating-leg component is attached to the market price of the underlying commodity or agreed upon commodity index and the fixed-leg component is specified in the contract. These swaps are settled in cash but the physical delivery is predetermined in the contract. 4.    Credit Default Swaps The credit default swap offers insurance in the event that third-party borrower defaults. It helps transfer between two or more parties the credit exposure of fixed income products. The swap buyer makes payment to the swap seller until the date of the maturity of the contract. The seller in return agrees that they will pay the buyer the security premiums in addition to all interest payments that would have been paid between that time and the security maturity date in the event that the debt issuer defaults. 5.    Equity Swaps An equity swap is a financial derivative contract where two counterparties agree to exchange a set of future cash flows at set date’s n the future. The two cash flows are known as legs of the swap. The legs of the swap include the floating leg which is pegged to a floating rate such as LIBOR and the other leg component is the equity leg which is based n the performance of either a share of stock or a stock market index. Equity swaps help avoid transaction costs such as tax, limitations on leverage and get around policy governing a particular type of investment that an institution can grasp. Summary Swaps can be designed and structured in different ways to meet the needs of all the parties as they are offered over the counter (OTC). However, they are unregulated and so every investor should fully understand the implications of the swap before they enter into the contract.
