NEW YORK, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Oracle Fund offers an opportunity to enter an investment partnership that's already shown tremendous potential for long-term capital gains, according to Fund Manager Javier Gonzalez. Oracle Fund's strategy effectively insulates it from the typical ups and downs of the market.
Naturally, Oracle Fund's primary objective is to build wealth for its partners. Annually, the fund's General Partner seeks to outperform most equity indices by 5 to 15%. Capital gains from the fund are continually reinvested, so the fund is ideal for those focused on the long-term economic picture rather than short-term gains. The Oracle Fund Partnership is administered by Core Fund Solutions, audited by Arthur Bell CPAs, and the General Partner is Wharton Global Capital.
Gonzalez contends that while many analysts have been shouting "correction," the market is in fact poised to move higher. "The bears have been roaring about the fragility of the market's record-setting numbers, but the fundamental and technical aspects are all reasonably solid. A vocal minority expects the bulls to keep running through 2014 and beyond. In other words, there's no sense waiting for what might only be a minor correction. Today is a fine time to invest, and Oracle Fund is a great opportunity to become part of something special."
"Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen has promoted a monetary policy of continued low interest rates," Gonzalez added, "she is more dovish than predecessors like Greenspan and Miller. She notably prioritizes employment and will likely allow inflation to significantly surpass 2%. Can we get a more dovish Chairwoman than a Berkeley professor? While it might be optimal during an extreme recession, it might prove otherwise in a healthy environment."
The philosophy of Oracle Fund takes a contrary position to the much-ballyhooed Efficient Market Theory. The Partnership's global macro segment of the portfolio looks for cheap markets with positive catalysts. Currently, China looks attractive, as well as Brazil and Thailand. The investment manager looks for catalysts such as elections, financial regulation reform, or important changes in monetary and fiscal policy. Over the medium-term the excess returns might be tempting for some investors.
On the long/short side of the portfolio the focus is in the top of securities in terms of their businesses, their predictability, and technical factors.
Selection of investment securities for Oracle Fund follows two key principles. First, the Partnership endeavors to limit the risk of capital loss as much as possible. Second, investments with a realistic possibility of doubling are prioritized as part of the goal of seeing Oracle Fund itself double. At any one time, approximately 70 to 80% of the fund consists of 6 to 10 securities that share the aforementioned characteristics. The remaining 20 to 30% is spread among smaller positions. Of the roughly 8,000 publicly traded securities in the US, only about 1% meet the Partnership's rigorous criteria. But even with just 80 stocks from which to choose, Oracle Fund still achieves diversity.
Ample time is devoted to research as part of informing the Partnership's investment decisions. With his expertise in fundamental, technical and global macro factors, Gonzalez leads the research efforts, which include an examination of historical precedents and backtesting.
Despite the fund's strong quarterly earnings, Gonzalez cautions against making too much of short-term numbers. "Weekly, quarterly and even annual metrics can sometimes be distracting when the strategy is to take the long view," he explained. "In other words, we're much more interested in Oracle Fund's performance in five- year increments. That's where true wealth is created rather than in the effervescent cycles of boom and bust."
With the realistic expectation that Oracle Fund will continue to grow, the General Partner may elect to close the fund to outside investors in the next few years.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
