Untitled (Lamp/Bear) 💡 🐻⠀ ⠀ Urs Fischer’s work is rooted in playfulness, with an element of irreverence. Untitled (Lamp/Bear) is from a series of works that explore what the artist calls “the inner mechanics of duality.” He questions, “what happens when two specific objects meet in an imagined space.” The series includes a giant wooden chair straddling a cigarette package, an upended table balancing on a cigarette lighter, and in the sculpture at Brown, an inexpensive Bakelite desk lamp extending from the head of a teddy bear. Audacious and humorous, the sculpture is a nostalgic and larger-than-life presence.⠀ ⠀ Untitled (Lamp/Bear) joins the lineage of sculptures referencing Brown University’s mascot, the Kodiak bear, including the 2013 work, Indomitable by Nick Bibby at the Athletic Complex; Ernest Geyger’s bear fountain at the faculty club; Ely Harvey’s bronze Bruno, located on the main green; Nicholas Swearer’s expressionist bear at Maddock Alumni Center; and the taxidermied Kodiak bear in the lobby of Meehan Auditorium.⠀ ⠀ 📷: @bugqian – add yours with #BrownUniversity

How to Grow Your Wealth Faster

Ivy League Alumni

Do you want to make higher returns on your stock trades? Using a leveraged ETF can boost your returns, but they are also more risky for investors. Here’s some advice about leveraged ETFs:

Disclaimer (see our disclaimer page): Seek professional advice before investing.

An ETF (exchange-traded fund) is a security which basically holds a bunch of stocks or bonds, or an index fund. You can buy ETFs for almost any industry: Telecoms, Tech, Biotech, Utilities etc..

For example: S&P 500 Index ETF, SPDR https://us.spdrs.com/en/etf/spdr-sp-500-etf-SPY?fundSeoName=spdr-sp-500-etf-SPY

Leveraged ETF

So a leveraged ETF uses financial tools (borrowing) to increase the leverage of your bet. You can get *2 or *3 positions which aim to provide 200 % & 300% (respectfully) of the underlying market performance of the asset. If the technology stocks rise 1% and you own a technology ETF *3 then you get a 3% return for the same trade because leverage boosted your returns by 3 times.

For example here is a leveraged Technology ETF: TECL *300 http://www.direxioninvestments.com/products/direxion-daily-technology-bull-3x-etf

Using leverage is more risky. Because the moves up and down are more volatile. Expect swings anywhere between 2%-10+% a day (up or down) depending on market volatility. There are fees involved in owning a leveraged ETF and beta-slippage can cause the ETF to not match the performance of the market over time. If you can handle the risk and are chasing fast returns then a leveraged ETF can be a faster way to grow your wealth.

Time to Buy Snap Inc?

Negative sentiment has driven Snap Inc stock below the IPO price of $17.At the start of 2017 Snap Inc went public on the NYSE. Does this present a good opportunity for investors to buy the stock?

First quarter results for Snap Inc. showed a larger than expected loss and slower predicted user growth, which resulted in a downgrade by Morgan Stanley.

Snapchat is locked in a battle with Instagram Stories.

Early IPO investors in Snap Inc likely lost money. Despite the bad news, here are 7 AWESOME reasons why Snap Inc. might be worth snapping up.

1.Facebook shows the way for Snap. If Snap can be anything as popular as Facebook then Snap will make money.

2.Snap is an innovative ‘camera company’

3.Snap has technology which is not easy to imitate

4.Snap can develop new products like ‘Spectacles’ & ‘SnapMap’ which offer new revenue possibilities

5.Snap is founder led by Evan Spiegel

6.Currently the stock is trading at a steep discount to the IPO ($14.97)

7. Facebook stock also fell right after it’s IPO. But has since surged in value.

Stock Picks for 2017

Buying an IPO (Initial Public Offering) is a tough choice for investors to make. An IPO is when a private company decides to list on a public stock exchange, like Snap Inc deciding to list on the NYSE at the start of 2017. One reason that 2017 IPOs are risky is because the companies that are going public are investing for growth and may not be profitable (yet).

Nine tech companies have already gone public in 2017:  Alteryx, Carvana, Cloudera, Elevate Credit, Mulesoft, Netshoes, Okta, Snap and Yext (Source: TechCrunch).

The biggest IPO of 2017 is Snap Inc ($15.14), the social media app that is locked in a battle for users with Instagram Stories. If you invested in the Snap IPO you probably lost  money because the stock currently is valued at below  the IPO price of $17

Recently Blue Apron ($6.65) completed it’s IPO at $10, the meal delivery service has recently closed below it’s IPO price too. Another cautionary tale for IPO investors.

Rumour has it that another tech stock is planning it’s IPO in 2017: Dropbox. The company is a data sharing business, and it could be the biggest U.S. technology company to go public since Snap Inc. Dropbox will begin interviewing investment banks in the coming weeks, according to sources(source: Fortune).

While investing in an IPO has it’s own risks, if you like the company enough and believe in their story for growth they present an interesting proposition.
