The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is one of the most prestigious honors that a business can be given by the Better Business Bureau. It is given to companies that display a proper level of commitment to their customers and their community. Aloha Construction was recently a recipient of this award and they were proud to take home this incredible honor.
For a company to receive this award, a company needs to showcase the correct combination of leadership and dedication to the community. They must have a unblinking commitment to practicing the necessary ethics. Companies like Aloha Construction place all of these qualities on display and then some.
Being able to qualify for the award is a major honor and taking it home is one of the greatest achievements that a company can obtain. Aloha Construction’s impact on the community is one of the main reasons why they were able to stand alone. This company went to great lengths to create a stronger connection with their community and their efforts deserve recognition.
Whether Aloha Construction is organizing toy shopping sprees for local disadvantaged children or pledging their support to the local Boys and Girls Club, their dedication to the community is always shining through. The amount of time and money that Aloha Construction dedicated to various causes in the region makes them one of the best choices for the award in recent memory.
It is not all about community service, though. While this is a core tenet of any company that receives consideration for this honor, this community outreach is paired with the necessary customer service. All clients receive work that is performed by licensed and bonded contractors who are all ready to stand behind their work.
In addition to providing the sort of craftsmanship that only the most experienced contractors have to offer, extended warranties are offered that allow customers to receive alterations to their work as necessary. As a family owned company, Aloha Construction prizes their relationships with all of the people that they come across. This is what allows them to stand alone in the local community.

Market America simply defines itself as an internet marketing and brokerage company that is classified as a multi-level marketing company. Having been in the business for several decades, the company came into existence in 1992 when it was founded by Loren Ridinger together with her husband James Howard Ridinger.
Today, JR Ridinger serves as the Chairman and CEO of Market America, and the states of how well people are succeeding rapidly through his company. With the headquarters of Market America in Greensboro, North Carolina, the company has expanded gradually since inception to having over 650 employees according to the data collected in 2010. To date, more branches have been opened in various locations across the globe including Mexico, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The most recent is in Malaysia where the company identified a gap that needed to be filled.
Considering the fact that Market America is a product brokerage company, it deals with a wide range of items. Its most common offerings include; personal care products, auto care, jewelry, cosmetics, cleaning supplies, and dietary supplements. Other health-related products include weight management products and water purifiers whose demand rises each day as a result of the awareness of being in good health.

Highland Alternative Investors, a subsidiary of the huge Highland Capital Management company recently revealed that it is shifting its focus away from traditional SP 500s and towards alternative investments in the health and other emerging sectors after its investments last year showed they made more than a triple of what they made from S & P 500 through investment in similar alternatives. The company which is based out of Dallas made a return of 31.6% in the year 2016 from its Class A shares compared to a much smaller return of 12% made on its large cap S & P shares.
Even though Highland Capital Management oversees the management of more than 15 Billion dollars in assets, its subsidiary Highland Alternative Investment has a much smaller fund that is made up of just about $55 million in assets. Which makes the results even more impressive. The latter is managed by Michael Gregory together with James Dondero. Mr. James Dondero is one of the co-founders of Highland Capital Management and currently serves as the president of the company.
While explaining why the company had enjoyed what he called a great year in 2016, Michael Gregory pointed out that the company has a high credit competency and this is why even though the prices of oil continued to fall throughout the year they were still able to enjoy lucrative partnerships and deals with pipelines. Even more interesting was his response when asked to give his six best stock picks for the year 2017.
Considering the fact that health care was the only sector within the S&P 1500 Index that posted a decline in 2016, it would seem odd that this was the first sector that the guys from Highland Capital Investment would mention as their stock pick. But they predict that the sector is set for a rebound this year as a result of the addiction to opioids in the States. The fact that insurance companies are now taking notice and accelerating the approval process for new pain relieving drugs that are less addictive could lead to increased production and faster growth within the industry.
