A Sit-Down With James Dondero to Discuss the World of Stock Options and the Market Overall


James Dondero is someone who has made a living out of helping people with their stock options. He has helped on a corporate level. He has helped people who are out there making a normal everyday living.


We sat down to talk to him recently. We discussed a number of topics, including some tips for those seeking to make a better return on their investment. Here is what he had to say.


“Personally, I feel that people need to take their ever day lifestyle into account. Too many people looking to get into the stock market tend to skate over their lifestyle choices. They tend to overemphasize other areas and not pay much attention to this”.


“What sort of risk are you looking to take? This is one of the first questions I ask clients. Some are okay with taking a big risk. Others want to stay low key about their choices. Each client needs to take this into consideration. Those who are more conservative are not going to do well with an aggressive market. They will freak out and run. Same goes for those who like aggressive markets. Staying low key and conservative is going to be boring for them”.


James then went on to discuss the concept of emotions and how they should stay out of stock market deals.


“Let me say this. Emotions should be checked at the door anytime a person wants to play the stock market. This goes for both simple and complex transactions. Emotions can play nasty tricks on a person. They can make you feel as though you are making a good choice. Emotions tend to manipulate us. We buy into these tricks all the time. Think of the scene in Star Wars when Yoda tells Anakin to not let his emotions betray him. It is the same logic and principle. Then, Anakin goes ahead and does it anyway. Clients end up doing the same thing. It is very telling”.


“As long as clients are open to what I have to tell them and want honesty, we will get along fine”.

Equities First Holdings Sees a Growing Trend Among Borrowers Who Use Stock as Loan Collateral to Secure Working Capital

Equities First Holdings is a leading alternative source of funds during the harsh economic crisis. For the company, they always delight in the issuance of loans using stocks as the main collateral. For this reason, the company has noted that there is more traction in the intake of stock-based loans in the recent economic crisis. Banks and other credit-based institutions have their loan qualification method tightened due to the onset of the financial crisis. While this is true, these banks help eliminate the effects of the economic crisis that can affect the masses if they keep releasing more money during the crisis. For those who raise quick money for their projects and personal use during the harsh financial crisis, you might consider Equities First Holdings as one of the most trusted companies in the world.

While many other options are in existence for the individuals, borrowers now have limited access to the credit-based loans provided by banks during the economic crisis. Tightened bank loan qualification also characterizes the credit-based loans. As a matter of fact, interest rates are also on the rise. Al Christy is the CEO and Founder of Equities First Holdings. He has also seen an increased trend in the intake of the stock-based loans. According to him, the use of stocks to secure loans is one of the most competitive ways of obtaining capital during the harsh economic crisis. As a matter of fact, these loans are characterized by the low-interest rates.

Sock-based loans are also characterized by the high loan-to-value ratio than the credit-based and margin loans. According to many people, they consider margin loans to be synonymous with the credit-based loans. Therefore, the transaction life is inevitable. Market fluctuation is evident during a three-year term. However, the stock-based loans provide a hedge between the loan and your problem.

Understanding Kabbalah

The origin of Kabbalah is from the ancient Babylon. Its Science has not been fully disclosed to all the people of the world. It had remained hidden from human beings, but it appeared more than four thousand years ago. There is an undying allure of Kabbalah from various groups of individuals because of such concealment. There are many notable people among them high Scientists such as Newton, Pico Della Mirandola and Leibniz who have tried to understand the Science of Kabbalah but to no avail. It is only a few people who are experienced and who have known the Science.

It has not been easy to understand the Science of Kabbalah and its teachings because it does not talk about the world. Not many people can be able to know what cannot be seen by naked eyes or touched by bare hands. Also, people understand what they have experienced and what they have never experienced in their life. There have been different beliefs by the people of the world which are connected to Kabbalah for a long time. Things such as curses, spells, and miracles are not what Kabbalah entails despite various groups of people having such beliefs. All this is based on misinterpretations and misconceptions. Here are the proper ways of Kabbalah.There is a creator who can also be regarded as a great force. There are governing powers that come from the high energy to the world. The top power creates human beings, and it is the creator. There are many forces, but it doesn’t matter for people to know all these forces. There are forces that we already know such as the strength of gravity, the force of electromagnet and other forces such as the power of thought. There are other significant effects that we do not know and are hidden.

The ultimate force is called the Creator. The Creator sums up all the forces that exist in the world. The upper force was responsible for upper worlds. There is what is called Machsom, which is a barrier separating the upper worlds and our world. There is “the Creator” who is also referred to as “the World of Infinity.” It is the force that came to all the worlds giving birth to the earth and humans. The Kabbalah Science does not study people and their world like the traditional Science. It studies all that exist beyond the machsom force.

Yanni Hufnagel Deserves Own College Program

There seems to be a lot of pressure put on young men and affluent suburbs. Being the children of successful people, the pressure is for the young men to become successful on their own merits. Parents, coaches and high school counselors all urge these young men to become bankers, lawyers or doctors. This is especially the case in the New York City suburb of Scarsdale, New York, where Yanni Hufnagel grew up.


The affluent Jewish suburb continues to turn out some of the most successful young Jewish men in the country. So you can imagine the kind of pressure that Yanni Hufnagel was under after he graduated from Cornell University. But instead of becoming a lawyer, doctor or banker, Yanni Hufnagel took an unpaid position to help the Oklahoma Sooners basketball team as a graduate assistant.


He was immediately recognized for his talent in recruiting by head coach Jim Capel. Capel then recommended him to Harvard University. This was Yanni Hufnagel’s big break. Unfortunately, assistant coaches at Harvard do not get paid. I can only imagine the pressure grew to go get a “real job,” yet Yanni Hufnagel persisted.


I’m really glad he stuck to its because Harvard is where he would gain his fame. His ability to recruit was so good that he put together Harvard’s first Ivy League championship team. Now, Harvard does not issue athletic scholarships which makes recruiting for the Ivy League school nearly impossible. But the Crimson Tide went 79-24 in the four years that Yanni Hufnagel spent in Cambridge. In 2011, the school won a record 26 games and became nationally ranked for the very first time.


Yanni Hufnagel is now in his early 30s. He has put in his dues and has followed a similar career trajectory as Brad Stevens. It’s about time he tastes some of that success but he’s been chasing with his own college program.
