Examining the Recent History of Qualifying Investment Worthy Target Ventures in the B2B IT subsectors.

Is the The B2B IT sector a difficult arena to source and place capital or, conversely, to harvest capital out of such deals? According to a diverse pool of analysts, including several specializing in the enterprise software and services sector, the past 15 years of high-profile B2B tech company consolidations driven by certain PE funds, has resulted in a reduction in overall availability of mid stage direct placement capital deals for well-established, maturing ventures poised for growth. This reduction in capital resources, and how it came about, is a troubling tale. The epilogue is even sadder as if that were even possible, describing the pollution that occurred in the aftermath of the B2B consolidations. The selection criteria and commonsense values became out of phase, upside down, leading to long-term damages. These are the wages of fear and doubt that reliably occur when sound targeting attributes are ignored. Applying the corrective selection targeting criteria  – no MBA required – when the next phase of capitalization restarts – and we shall see that these mature, well led, clearly innovative B2B ventures come to the surface, with long-established continuities of private ownership; these ventures have been overlooked en mass for the past 15 years in the B2B IT subsectors.

While it seems a bit  farfetched to state that, “better companies were deliberately ignored in favor of the now well-known, (even infamous) weeble-companies tagged by PE’s for toxic consolidation). They were all past their prime,  overstaffed, overstuffed, having long abandoned their founders drive and vision, and eschewing the technical staff’s architectural and system acumen.  The sordid mess, in a nutshell, stank of corruption, but there is still hope….

We all know that no one can stop a true inventor –  the Edison’s, the Teslas, the Jobsian leaders….these brilliant, hard-headed, are true to themselves (and to the very wordInnovators  –  they never go away, they continue to innovate and improve, and gain more ground.  Continue reading


Walter Lukken, Liar in Chief , CFTC

Walter Lukken -Chief Liar, CFTC

Another CNBC non-first: Walter Lukken, Chairman and Chief Liar of the CFTC (the criminals who ‘regulate’ futures speculation), came on CNBC for a well orchestrated lying session where he said, “We have limits and controls in place, and it seems that they are working well.”

That is to say, these stratagems are working well for Mr. Lukken, his friends, and his masters in the Bush Administration’s last days as they all clean up through their proxies in the NYMEX Pit.

How can this man sleep at night? How can he say these blatant lies? He has paper traders, under his nose, inflating the market and taking no delivery of the goods, with a virtual zero margin requirement.

So, as we see, we cannot trust CNBC to challenge any guest after said guest has propagandized to his heart’s content. And the CFTC and Lukken? Traitors like this we have not seen since the governmental banking manipulators of the roaring ’20s.

Another quote that I couldn’t catch the source of on that episode of the CNBC special:

“This type of speculation, where parties participate with no chance or intention of using or taking delivery of the product, is like creating a futures market in pharmaceuticals; life saving drugs whose critical need by the sick and dying manipulated by heartless robbers,  criminals whose only function is to take money out of the market by inflating the price, while the end-user suffers.”

Can you imagine a futures market in Insulin? Wait, it might still happen. Whoever put that concept in play is a good person, a truth-teller.

Your average commuter of the working class, and yes, professionals that must take to road? Screwed. How dare you, you evil bastards that propagate this MYTH that paper speculation in crude futures has no effect? You will meet with the judgment of the heavenly tribunal – in  the days to come, when you are infirm and your loved ones have abandoned you.

That is what is happening now – bastard speculators that never touch the oil are merely placing a permanent long position, and whacking 40-60 bucks on the delivery price, and who pays…..you do.

CNBC, you owe us more. Stop taking fast and asking shallow questions and diagram out the horror that is ICE and long contracts – dry, empty, no product no delivery contracts.

Brian Darling, Professional Liar, Heritage Foundation

On CNBC, the center for misinformation for all things regarding commodities futures trading, Brian Darling, a paid liar for the Heritage Foundation says that increasing margin requirements for oil futures speculators will destroy the economy.

Mr. Darling needs to be beaten with an oil field pipe wrench  – he is paid by the foundation to convey misinformation. The entire run up in crude prices is due to the number of speculators that hold contracts on dry barrels. These evil folks could never hope to take delivery of the commodities that they are bidding on. Worse, they are bidding with a near zero investment backing their long positions. Could it get worse that this?

Yes. In most cases, they are not even placing the 5% margin requirement that is called for (it should be 50% margin). They are allowed to trade for free, with no need to take delivery, and with what is essentially no margin requirement.

Brian Darling – you are an evil traitor to this country you bastard.
