It is also controversial for enforcing patents and going after farmers that violate its GMO seed policies. Recently, over the last two decades, it has been controversial due to its main business, genetically-modified-organism (GMO) products. The impact of GMO foods will not be known until decades afterwards but GMO foods are one of the most regulated and scrutinized products so I am somewhat less concerned than others. I will do a detailed write-up if I research more. Last, but not least, you need to concentrate on using more of content marketing technology. These are just some of the products that a promotional marketing company may sell to its B2B customers.

Management skill is also unclear, although Bob Diamond built up Barclay’s Africa operations over the decades so he knows the region (he is also apparently good with forex which is where Atlas Mara is making money right now).

Assets are likely overstated and asset quality is likely poor but even then, after adjustments, if P/B is less than 0.6, it is worth investigating given the long-term secular banking growth (if you are ok with high-risk investments).

Profile of former Barclays CEO (who stepped down after LIBOR interest-rate manipulation scandal–not clear but I don’t think he is ethically challenged) who is running a new fund/holding company, Atlas Mara (trades in London, LSE: ATMA).

Realize massive trading profits as advanced artificial intelligence technology trades for you. Hard to tell but the stock probably trades at a discount due to its controversial nature. Ninety-nine percent of them will, but you have to remember to ask this question if they dont tell you. But I have no problem with Monsanto. Monsanto has been one of the most hated companies in America in the last 50 years. The industry has not done so well over the last 5 years and because this is a high P/E (high ROE) stock, one needs to be clear on the future prospects.

We found that a mere 2.18 per cent indicated that they would choose the riskiest portfolio (comprising 60 per cent high-risk, 30 per cent medium-risk and 10 per cent low-risk assets) after marriage. Assets are likely overstated and probably worth less than what’s on the books.

Atlas Mara is a holding company with stakes in several banks and is trying to consolidate them into larger, more efficient, operations.

Some of their investments were likely duds and they might have spent millions on worthless banks.
