Kerrisdale Capital’s Sahm Adrangi Releases Negative Report

Kerrisdale Capital’s Sahm Adrangi Releases Negative Report

Sahm Adrangi, Chief Investment Officer of Kerrisdale Capital, released a negative report on QuinStreet, Inc to explain why they’re shorting QuinStreet’s stock, QNST. QuinStreet is a web advertisement firm that provides new potential customers who are shopping for the product that the affiliated website is selling. QuinStreet claims that these leads are high value, while most of the traffic comes from fake traffic and users working for “swagbacks”. Swagbucks is a website that rewards users with gift cards for tasks they complete. These tasks often involve going to certain websites and clicking around on the page to generate traffic, despite the user not being interested in anything the website is selling.

Adrangi claims that there is nothing to set QuinStreet apart from its failing competitors. Their technology is out of date, their affiliated websites are moving to greener pastures, and their business model.

Sahm Adrangi outlines a system of phony traffic to websites in QuinStreet’s network. The phony traffic generates revenue for QuinStreet while costing their affiliated websites. Adrangi further states that their whole business model is flawed. He also points out that key members of QuinStreet, like its CEO and CFO, have already began selling their shares.

From their out dated business model, clunky technology, and utilizing fraudulent traffic to increase revenue and deceive their customers, Kerrisdale Capital has shorted the company and believes it will fail.

Founded in 2009, New York-based Kerris Capital manages over $300 million in investments. The private firm focuses on long-term investments as well as event-driven situations.

Sahm Adrangi is the Chief Investment Officer of Kerrisdale Capital as well as its founder. He earned a bachelors degree in arts and economics from Yale University. He worked at Chanin Capital Partners where he advised creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring. Before founding Kerrisdale Capital, Sahm Adrangi worked at Longacre Fund Management as an investment analyst for both the equity and credit fund.

What You Need To Know About Market America

What You Need To Know About Market America

Market America was founded by JR Ridinger (a former Amway distributor) and his wife Loren Ridinger back in 1992. They had a rough beginning. The company didn’t come to light for almost ten years, this was due to some changes in the Security and Exchange Commission about the violation of certain securities laws in 1999.

Just like other MLMs that go public and then have some issues with the Security and Exchange Commission, the company also went private in 2001. The company started enlarging their coast internationally by 2002 into Australia. Afterward, the company moved into the United Kingdom, Mexico, Philippines, and Hong Kong.

In 2010, Market America bought Shop.com – an online shopping engine that flaunts most of the world’s largest former investors, including Bill Gates, Yahoo, and Amazon. By 2011, the company started gaining grounds, and they had about 650 employees, and all of them were working full-time.

Also in 2010, the company had an estimate of 395 million USD in revenue. They also unveiled two celebrity spokespersons – Kim Kardashian and Scottie Pippen. In 2013, the company took the 27th position in the Global 100 of DSN.

Market America Products

This company has one of the biggest stores in the world. They have more than 3,000 proprietary products in their store. Some of the products you can find in their store include health tonics, makeup, household cleaners, fitness programs, nutritional and weight-loss supplements, gardening products, and so many others.

In addition to the proprietary products they sell, JR went ahead to acquire Shop.com, an online platform that sells all types of popular name brands at very affordable rates – the idea is to make the company look like Amazon.com.

A very popular product in the Market America store is Isotonix (nutritional supplements) which they brought Scottie to represent in 2010. The supplements were sold for 70 USD for each bottle. You can find a nutritional supplement with the same or similar ingredients at other online platforms or a drugstore close to you for less than that amount (even about 25 USD) per bottle, but those do not have the face of a celebrity on them. The face on the bottle is basically their selling point.

Whitney Wolfe’s Recent Wedding and Further Developments after Bumble Dating App

Whitney Wolfe’s Recent Wedding and Further Developments after Bumble Dating App

Speaking of glamorous weddings, Whitney Wolfe’s recent wedding with Michael Herd represents one of those. There were several yachts, at least six designer wear changes, and arena-style seating. The ceremony happened early last month on the Amalfi Coast. However, the couple opted to keep it under the wraps regarding social media coverage. Renowned stylist Cynthia Cook was enlisted to take care of the look of the bride over the four days of the event. Whitney changed between six designer garments.She started with a Giambattista Valli on the first evening of the event. On the following day, a Friday, Oscar de la Renta, blue silk in color, was the order of the day. Later in the evening, a sequinned Saint Laurent was the wedding dress of choice.

On the official wedding day, Whitney went with an Oscar de la Renta with a long train. A Delphine Manivet saw her through dinner, and a Naeem Khan dress closed the chapter for dancing. The Bumble CEO impressed at the event with her several dress changes that all went well with the photos. Her Bumble dating app just reached over 20 million users. What’s special about this app that it gives the full female control of conversations by only allowing them to start a conversation. The company has since expanded and now has Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz under its umbrella. Bumble BFF allows users to make new platonic friends outside the dating app.

Bumble Bizz on the other hand also employs the same working principle of the older two sisters. It, however, uses those perks to drop conversations in the career sphere. Finding the right investor or mentor is as equally important as matching with love or friendship interest. On Bumble Bizz women will still be the ones to make the first move. This is because of many reported cases of solicitation of women on other similar platforms.Whitney Wolfe has really revolutionized the online dating industry with Bumble and is extending a similar kind of influence elsewhere. The advent of Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz show her desire to leave a mark on the online interaction realm. Wolfe shaped her career as an entrepreneur having worked with the likes of Badoo which is in the same space as Bumble. She comes from the state of Utah and is a holder of an International Studies degree from Southern Methodist University.
