How Sahm Adrangi Of Kerrisdale Capital Management Approaches Investing

Sahm Adrangi, the chief investment officer at Kerrisdale Capital Management, follows two basic strategies when it comes to investing. His main strategy is to invest in companies he sees as having great long-term potential. His other strategy is the polar opposite of this approach. If the research into a company conducted at his firm shows that a company is on thin ice he will short their stock so that his hedge fund profits if the company’s stock value falls. He then reveals his research to others including doing announcements in the press and holding telephone conferences.

There are a few companies that Sahm Adrangi has invested his hedge fund in recently that he sees as having great long-term prospects. One of these is Luxoft Ldg Inc (LXFT) which he recently increased his stake in by 19.27 percent. At the end of 2018’s first quarter, Kerrisdale Capital Management held 734,056 shares in this business which was revealed in a regulatory filing with the SEC. This was up from the end of the fourth quarter of 2017 when his company held 615,456 LXFT shares. He appears to be pretty bullish on this company which is worth $1.3 billion according to its market cap.

On the other side of the equation, Sahm Adrangi is pretty down on the St. Joe Company and is shorting its shares. He says that this real estate development firm owns a huge plot of land in Southern Florida which is totally overvalued given it is remote swampland. St. Joe has a plan to convert this desolate piece of property into one that has both residential and commercial properties on it. However, this plan has been mired in the muck for the past decade and there is no hope for it coming to fruition given the conditions.

Sahm Adrangi started his company in April 2009 after having worked at other hedge funds for a number of years as an analyst. He had worked for Longacre Fund Management, Chanin Capital Partners, and the international banking giant Deutsche Bank. He decided to manage his own hedge fund where he would focus on overhyped companies to short balanced against investing in companies that show long-term value.

Little did anyone know her love for vivid colors and magical unicorns would launch what is known as today as Lime Crime. But back in the mid 2000s, she was like many other young ladies. She was passionate about makeup. She was into uploading videos to the internet. Mainly, she was just experimenting with makeup tutorials. But her videos go to show that when someone has passion and talent unthinkable things can happen.

As a founder and active member of the company she started, Doe Deere is a busy business woman. Her day is filled with phone calls. Answering many emails fills up most of her morning. Her afternoons are full of meetings. When she has the free time, she settles down in her office to devote time to what she enjoys most. During this time she gets to be creative.

Robert Deignan: Enveloping and Applying the Idealism of Entrepreneurship

Unlike so many other people who typically shove their creative ideas aside, Robert Deignan proved to be distinctive in the fact that he generated an ingenious idea and he acted upon it. As a man who considers himself to be most inventive when he is outdoors and disengaged from the social world, Deignan genuinely envelopes the idealism of entrepreneurship by approaching the implementation of his ideas with maximum effort and a devout seriousness to executing elaborate strategies for background research. Therefore, when it came to enforcing his idea for a remote digital support service, he knew that it would be a success because he had already invested research into the idea. In 2011, Robert Deignan founded ATS Digital Services, LLC—a digital support services company located in Boca Raton, Florida that troubleshoots and resolves technical issues for customers by performing remote connections to their devices. Yet, even prior to becoming CEO of his own company, Deignan exhibited leadership potential throughout his childhood via wholehearted pursuits of his inner passions.

Robert Deignan was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he grew up being a lover of football. Throughout high school, he played on the football team which opened doors to some of the best opportunities he would ever receive. Upon graduating from high school, Deignan applied for the full football scholarship that he had been awarded to attend Purdue University. While a student at Purdue, he undertook collegiate studies to earn a degree in Organizational Leadership. After college, Robert Deignan continued to play football whereby from 1997 to 1998 he came to play for professional NFL teams (Miami Dolphins and NY Jets). However, he decided that he wanted to endeavor in a different passion and took it upon himself to learn about Information Technology. He first co-founded a company called Fanlink but quickly decided to invest in other ideas upon its dissolution. After Fanlink, he worked for an anti-malware company that encountered issues installing software on customers’ computers, thus inspiring him to create a solution with the launching of ATS Digital Services. As of today, Robert Deignan currently resides in the Fort Lauderdale region with his family where he enjoys participating in his favorite pastime sports activities.

AM|PM Essentials From Jeunesse Keeps You Young

I have always said that beauty comes from the inside. And I agree with this sentiment even when it comes to anti-aging products. I would rather reduce the signs of aging from the inside using good nutrition and supplements. Anti-aging creams and serums are good for covering up fine lines and wrinkles, but I believe real anti-aging comes from nutrition.

That’s why I was so excited to find Jeunesse’s anti-aging vitamins. This company makes it really easy on you by giving you a set of morning vitamins as well as a set of nighttime vitamins. They call the product AM|PM Essentials.

The even make it easy to decipher which bottle is which. The morning bottle is white while the nighttime bottle is a dark orange. It kind of makes sense as the bright bottle rises with the sun. And each bottle contains 60 capsules which are good for about two months so you don’t need to make too many orders throughout the year.

The morning bottle is a great way to kick off the day. The vitamins are packed with a proprietary blend of essential minerals. The vitamin A is packed with beta-carotene to increase your vision. The vitamin C is incredibly easily digested because it comes in the form of ascorbic acid. The niacin gives you a little bit of a kick in the morning which is sometimes badly needed. It also has the rare B12 to kickstart your metabolism.

The nighttime blend is just as powerful. It comes with a knockout punch of vitamin B6 and folate. You’ll also get a good dose of riboflavin. The proprietary mineral mix in the vitamins also gives you a good dose of magnesium which helps you to sleep.

The Jeunesse company has not been around for a very long time. It was founded back in 2009 by Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis. The two entrepreneurs had already retired after a lifetime of success in the business world. But they decided to come out of retirement on September 9 at 9:00 p.m. in the year 2009. The nine represents longevity.
