How Roberto Santiago Keeps His Mall Alive

You can’t work in the mall industry without hearing so much bad news. Malls are closing down everywhere as online shopping makes just about everything more convenient for those who choose to use it instead of a mall. Department stores that rely on malls as a way to find customers and a space to sell products are losing out as well thanks to online shopping. In this context the success of Roberto Santiago is so much more impressive. He’s had his Manaira Shopping Mall doing well in spite of all of the various difficulties that are presenting themselves. He isn’t losing anything to online shopping and that statement can’t be overstated.

 

Santiago has been able to keep his mall thriving because he understands what it takes to attract people and he does everything he can to make sure people are given the exact sort of services and goods that they want from a mall. The mall experience is something you can’t get online even with the spectacle of virtual reality. That ability to experience things live is what makes this medium so much more than what others out there are used to. It’s keeping things alive even after many people believed they would die out. Malls can compete with online shopping if they continue to offer unique experiences.

 

The shopping mall experience is something that can be used to get customers to buy in a way that can’t be done online. The online experience is 2D and built in a way that minimizes the sensory experience. That sort of thing is how Santiago keeps his mall alive and fights off the rivals out there. They don’t have the ability to offer what he is giving customers and what they do provide is simply not the same thing. The ability to create a unique experience is what makes Roberto Santiago’s mall alive and well and it’s what gives him the ability to compete on a level that can be appreciated by even his greatest detractors.

 

The future of our malls is going to be a shaky one. We don’t know for certain what will happen or what we will do next. Online shopping is here to stay but there are going to be things that can’t be offered online. Roberto Santiago is working to make sure that the way that we understand shopping malls includes a future for it and a way to maximize profits. He wants to create a future for malls with Manaira Shopping Mall as an example. Roberto Santiago has managed to do what he does for a long time because he has a commitment to a vision. He won’t give that up no matter what happens to malls.

 

Myriad Genetics, Paul Mampilly’s Pick for Growth Stock of Tomorrow

A Midwestern medical breakthrough is pending. Paul Mampilly believes it may be the greatest medical discovery in history. It’s a leader in diagnostic DNA sequencing that targets differing forms of cancer. Another hint as to the name of this company is its CEO, who is a biotech pioneer, leading the industry for the past 25 years. The best guess is this company is Myriad Genetics, a Salt Lake City, Utah personalized medicine and diagnostic company.

Myriad Genetics specializes in selling and processing cancer risk tests referred to as hereditary cancer screening. It’s in these tests that they predict the likelihood that someone will develop cancer of the breast or colon. These tests identify early mutations that can indicate an increased risk of developing the disease. From there patients can elect to undergo early-stage interventions to reduce the risk of developing the disease.

Myriad’s stock value was up after recent lows most recently. Still, after the announcement by Mampilly, the stock rose from a $1.5 billion stock to a $2.2 billion. The share price leveled off as their competitors rallied to keep the heat on Myriad. Myriad had been the forerunner and consequently, held on to the exclusivity of their services until losing out in a court battle for rights to use similar technology for early-stage cancer detection.

Specifically, the Supreme Court disallowed Myriad’s rights to patents, on genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. This made it possible for their competitors to test for the same cancer mutations in patients. Myriad remained the top provider, because they still generated the most reliable testing after insurers decided to cover some of the costs. Most importantly, Myriad had years to build up a library of testing results to which they often referred. Other testing facilities had to wait years to generate the same volume of cancer variant and mutation references.

Paul Mampilly notes that Myriad’s financials don’t tell the story clearly. Revenues have been flat for at least four years. It’s even expected that earnings will drop slightly and then rise steadily for two years straight. Mampilly is certain that precision medicine is going to growth at an exponential rate. Buying Myriad now will just put you in the driver’s seat for when the stock explodes. Everyone who is in the cancer battle will want a driver’s seat. They’ll all want to be in control of the best information and Myriad is poised to be the deliverer of that information.

David McDonald: President of OSI Group

President and COO of OSI Group David McDonald plans to continue to lead the company into the future with more factory openings and better products as time moves forward. The sustainability of the company is based on many factors, but David realizes one of the most important qualities is the consumers themselves. By understanding and taking into consideration what consumers are saying and doing, McDonald says the company continues to grow and branch out.

McDonald has an Animal Science degree which he earned from Iowa State University. He was Project Manager of OSI Industries before moving up, as well as being the chairman of North American Meat Institute, Independent Director at Marfrig Global Foods S.A, and is a member of the OSI Group’s Board of Directors.

With an eye for business and an ear to the people, McDonald says he will continue listening to the customers about what they like and want, to keep them in mind when creating new products. He believes that they are the greatest asset to employ when making business decisions.

David McDonald doesn’t run a small group either, the OSI Group has branched out into a global leader in the industry. They are planning to extend and expand their roots in China, Europe, Germany and the Netherlands. Already having worked in China for over 20 years, McDonald believes that it is time to grow the business on a much larger scale there. The company has done very well over the last 20 years. Mcdonald is confident that branching out through other countries will be the company’s next big venture, and is already in the works of said venture.

As part of the expansion process, recently, the OSI Group bought Tyson Foods facility in Chicago and Baho Food located in Europe, saying of it, “The company’s portfolio of products and brands complements OSI’s current processing strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers”, in hopes of expanding their reach in Europe, Germany, and the Netherlands. Baho Food Managing Director, John Balvers has already expressed his pleasure at being acquired by the larger, prestigious Group. Balvers stated that he and his team were excited and ready to work with the OSI Group, saying “With our combined strengths we will be even better able to support our customers in realizing their strategy and offer them a broader product portfolio.”
