To outperform the performance of the Standard and Poor’s (S&P) index is something to be impressed with. To nearly triple the performance put out by that index is in a category all of its own. This is particularly true considering the S&P had such a great year last year. However, that triple-up performance was what Highland Capital was able to put up on the scoreboard last year.
A lot of the performance came from Michael Gregory making excellent energy stock picks during that time period. He saw what he believed to be a bottoming out in oil prices, and had Highland Capital make investments in pipeline partnerships at that time. He was exactly right when it came to his timing of the market, and the earnings from those pipeline partnerships accounting for roughly half of the total return for Highland Capital last year.

What Is On the Horizon?
Such great picks by Gregory last year make a lot of people stand up and take notice of what he is doing for the year to come. They want an answer to what he believes will be the next set of winners in the stock market as he sees it. Fortunately, we have those answers.
Michael Gregory has identified the health care sector as the one to keep an eye on for the year 2018. Although the S&P index has still be on a tear for the last year, some of the sectors contained within it have not performed as well. Health care is one of those sectors. He says that stocks in the health care sector may be due for a rebound in the market.
Picking the laggards like this is not a revolutionary new strategy invented by Gregory or Highland Capital, but it is a strategy that does seem to work fairly well. After all, one might as well invest in the things that have not been as solid of performers in the past. It can provide for a much higher ceiling when it comes to perform of those stocks. Given that, it may be worth taking a look at this particular sector. Read this article at PR Newswire.
Depression is real and it might be more common to people who lead a busy and competitive life due to their lifestyle or jobs, but it also hits people in all walks of life. Depression has become one of the most talked-about mental illnesses of our generation, and there are those eho think it is just a result of a sensibility increase from society, but studies can show otherwise.
In some studies, living in this digital age with smartphones, computers and the internet, increases the risk of depression. In a recent study in South Korea, where almost everyone is connected via the internet and there’s a high suicide rate, it was suggested that 10% of teens who use the internet are at risk of depression. And that is where therapy comes into play.
The thing is, unless we plan to live in the mountains with just a well and a bed, we cannot really escape internet and our technological devices, especially considering communication.
The good news is, the digital world doesn’t have to be our enemy, it could actually be our greatest ally. With the smartphone app Talkspace, around 500,000 users are currently engaging with over 1,000 professionals. Therapy through the internet is very helpful as it can be instantly accessed and is cheaper than the traditional face to face therapy. According to an extensive study, online therapy reduced the instances of hospitalization by 25% for around 100,000 veterans who used the online services.
Upon subscribing to Talkspace, users will be greeted by a therapist who will ask them about themselves and their history in order to get to know them and pair them up with who’s going to be their ‘primary therapist’. That way Talkspace makes sure that users are paired with a therapist that best fits their personality and personal problems.
There is good news for coffee drinkers. The health benefits of drinking this delightful, yet caffeinated beverage has just increased. In a new study coffee is linked with the reduced risk of dying from disease. More specifically disease from stroke and heart disease.
The Annals of Internal Medicine recently published a new study about coffee and how it can increase the length of your life. 185,000 Americans participated in the study by drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day and documented the results over a 16 year period of time. It did not matter whether the coffee was caffeinated of decaffeinated. The study also took people from many biological backgrounds including Latinos, Japanese Americans, African-Americans, and Caucasians to show that coffee could positively impact anyone and everyone.

The findings were interesting to say the least. Those who drank 2 to 3 cups of coffee each day reported to decrease their chance of death by a whopping 18 percent. Participants reported their information every 5 years. They also did a European study that surveyed over 520,000 people. There was a correlation between those who drank coffee and decreased the chance of death rather than people who did not drink coffee. So drink up coffee lovers.
