Argitek Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:AGTK) recently received final permit approval for its cultivation and processing facility in Puerto Rico’s San Juan. As per the announcement, the final permit approval for the 15,000 sq.ft. facility will now allow the provisional licensee of the company to carry manufacturing and cultivation to be presented for final inspections by the Department of Health. The inspections are expected to take place any time this month.

San Juan facility is in exclusive agreement with AGTK

The San Juan-based facility currently has an exclusive multi-year financing, licensing, and operations agreement with AGTK.

It is San Juan’s first planned vertically integrated operation that will provide cultivation, processing, and retail after the process of final inspection is complete.

This agreement is extremely important for Agritek as Puerto Rico is one island that allows patients from all the states in the country having a medical card to buy cannabis-based products in the region. The tourism trade on the island is booming due to which the demand for such products has also increased in the past few years. Puerto Rico is known for offering cannabis-based products at a low rate as compared to the largest markets of California and Colorado in America.

Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos Rich Enough To Buy Any NFL Team

Published

on

Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) has gotten to its outstanding business success levels because of the good leadership of Jeff Bezos. The company’s CEO seems to be growing at almost the same level. Reports indicate that this leader can purchase almost anything he might want in the wide world. It is common for people to pay attention whenever a man of Jeff’s stature declares interest to purchase something.

The financial standing of Bezos

Bezos is the owner of The Washington Post, and almost everyone knows how successful it has become.

This time around, all eyes focus on the leader after he expressed interest in purchasing an NFL team.

This is not a fuss considering that he has already spoken to a number of the NFL owners. One of them is Daniel Snyder, who is the big name behind the Washington Redskins.

Reports also indicate that the CEO on Thursday expressed his interest in the purchase of the Seattle Seahawks.

Analysts’ perspective

Analysts have lately been speaking about the growing interest of Bezos in owning an NFL team. They think that this is highly likely considering how rich this entrepreneur is. He is currently worth $109.5 billion, which is enough to buy off any NFL team that may interest him at any time.

The Dallas Cowboys stands out as one of the most highly valued, and it is worth $5.5 billion. This is as per the Forbes rankings that have also placed Redskins at almost $3.4 billion. The same body says that Seahawks may stand at about $2.78 billion. From these details, it is easy to tell that this man could succeed in bagging any team he might want.

The CEO is rich, and that is a matter no one can dispute. However, to strike larger deals, he might be compelled to liquidate some of his assets. These include the multi-billion dollar homes under his name, among other investments.

The official also has many shares in Amazon, and he might also have to sell those whenever he wants to buy something of significant value. Analysts say that a huge deal of his wealth has come from a large number of shares that he owns at Amazon.

An outlook at Stadia

This is a major step into the gaming industry, and analysts say this might end up being Netflix in the gaming segment.

One of the most outstanding attributes of the new service is the freedom it poses to players. It won’t be necessary for them to have either a console or a hard copy to get in the game. This is a massive step that the company hopes to use to woo a significant number of players globally to its service.

Stadia pulls in with very strong momentum, and that is clear from a large number of games it will support. Some are even ready, and players will access them at what Google describes to be reasonable rates.

The situation in the market

The market is filled with rivals, and most of them are striving to take up leadership. This business guru knows it won’t be easy but still hopes to make it big.

Most of the rivals have been taking the perspective that the future of gaming lies in the cloud network. This is a shift in thinking where most people believed it could only function with hardware.

The competitors are busy carrying out tests on their products. For instance, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is working on enhancing its Project xCloud service. On the other hand,

Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) is busy working on its cloud gaming service. However, this isn’t from a reliable source. Anytime soon, we may get to hear something about it.

Phil Harrison, who is the current head of Google Stadia, says that they are working on enhancing the technology. He believes that players need something quite close to reality.

Gamers will be required to pay an already set subscription bundle to play. There is the Premiere Edition at $129.99 pulling along with a Stadia controller. The others are free-pass and a Chromecast dongle. Those that subscribe will be free to let a friend play for free for about three months.
