Unusual wildlife sightings

August 05, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

July and August are always the busiest part of my season, most days have me on the water somewhere. All of that time coming and going or just being on the water gets me to see lots of unusual sights. This afternoon I was fishing along the shore of Megunticook Lake in Camden with clients and there on the shore were two fawns (still with spots) feeding as if we simply did not exist. Last week clients and I saw a deer in the water feeding much as a moose does on a different part of the lake.

 So what can you do?

Establish a flexible project management methodology f

A strong stock market has fueled a very active market for initial public offerings (IPOs) on U.S. stock exchanges over the past 18 months. Much of the general buzz in the market often surrounds high-growth IPOs that are founder- and/or venture capital-sponsored. However, there’s been a significant volume of recent private equity-sponsored IPOs. At these companies, the executive compensation programs — especially the equity and long-term incentive (LTI) plans — often look quite different from...

Why licenses?

August 01, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

It came up again yesterday, why do you include licenses in the price of the fishing trip and why do you even bother to fill them out. The second part usually goes “I have been coming to Maine for years and never even seen a game warden”.

Stocks tumbled triple digits Thursday on a weak jobs report. The S&P 500 and Dow both erased all gains made for the month of July, and todays slides will put July solidly in the negative for the month.

Initial jobless claims spiked last week to 302,000 (up 23,000) over last week - last week being a 14 year low. Continuing claims jumped up by over 30,000 as well, indicating that the economy is still very much wounded, despite some other positive data...
