Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Kerrisdale Capital, Sahm Adrangi, recently shorted another biotech company’s stock. With a history of predicting failure with his investments, things do not look good for Prothena’s amyloidosis drug that Adrangi indicates has absolutely no chance of being a success. His argument is that the “success” that has been shown in trials is actually just random variance that would happen with or without the presence of the drug. Sahm Adrangi has predicted the failure of a cancer vaccine previously among other biotech disasters.

Sahm Adrangi founded Kerrisdale Capital in 2009 with just around a million dollars to invest initially. While the company itself invests in a wide variety of different stocks, Sahm Adrangi focuses on biotech, mining, and telecommunications. In 2014 he exposed problems within Globalstar’s planned TLPS. He presented his research by filing and meeting with the FCC as well as a webcast and live presentation.

After graduating from Yale with a bachelors in Economics, thirty two year old Sahm Adrangi was hired as an analyst Deutsche Bank. After Deutsche he went to Chanin Capital Partners and Longacre Fund Management. The hedge fund investor specialized in bankruptcy and distressed debt.

Adrangi’s presence on social media is as interesting as his choice in hedge fund investments. The outspoken activist investor has no qualms calling out those with whom he disagrees. Only in his thirties, Adrangi has accomplished a great deal for anyone; especially someone his age. In 2011, Sahm made what he called “a couple million” by researching and shorting Chinese companies that were listed in the United States that he believed were fraudulent. His actions led to several companies having actions taken against them by the Securities and Exchange Commission; these companies included ChinaCast Education and China Education Alliance. Adrangi and his company Kerrisdale Capital want to make sure that the information that they uncover about these companies is accessible, to do this he shares what he finds on Twitter, Kerrisdale’s own website, and other investing sites.

Paul Mampilly has been a professional investor since 1991. That’s ancient history for many of today’s investors, but it means he has seen both the best and the worst. Paul Mampilly saw the dot com bull market. He saw it dip in late 1997 thanks to the Asian currency crisis, then saw it go on to even greater heights. He suffered through the 2000 Tech Wreck. He was managing billions for one of the best hedge funds in the world when the stock market began going up again, along with real estate. During the 2008-2009 financial crash, a fund he managed for the John Templeton Foundation went from $50 million to $78 million for a 76% return. And he did that without shorting stocks, during the worst economy since the Great Depression. In March 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was less than 50% of its November 2007 high.

And Paul Mampilly has been watching how the stock market has continued to go up every since March 2009. Now that the market is suffering some down days, he recently wrote a blog post telling people, now is not the time to sell. The Dow Jones will reach 50,000, and then go up from there. He understands many people are worried when the market goes down. But that is natural and inevitable. No bull market in history has ever gone straight up. But when you sell your stocks out of fear, and the market goes back up, you feel frustrated by missing out. Mampilly doesn’t want his subscribers to miss the tremendous bull market.

Paul Mampilly points out there’s little chance this market will crash as it did in 2008. The stock market reflects the underlying economy. Future sales and earnings drive the stock market, and those numbers are solid. Business conditions are extremely favorable right now. Every large economy around the globe is now expanding because business conditions are good for everybody. 10 out of 11 market sectors reported higher earnings estimates in January. The Federal Reserve is slowly raising interest rates, but historically they are still quite low. Yet inflation remains extremely low.

As Paul Mampilly been saying since 2016, this bull is running to 50,000 and beyond. He doesn’t advise selling stocks in general. If you are sitting on cash now, he advises everyone to buy the stocks he recommends in the newsletter he writes for Banyan Hill Publishing, Profits Unlimited.

     The potential for an upset in Pennsylvania is giving Trump nightmares. The possibility that the 18th district of Pennsylvania will end up losing its Republican incumbent is a sign that the Trump movement might have peaked and that we are now going to see its decline. Conor Lamb wants to be the guy that will take this victory and he is receiving the full support of End Citizens United in order to make it a reality. While there are those out there who say this is going to be little more than a fluke, the writing on the wall says otherwise.

The shocking upset in Pennsylvania is something nobody expected roughly 2 years ago. People believed that Trump would prove to be a spectacular failure and give the office to Hillary Clinton. However, things seem to be turning around rather quickly with special elections favoring the Democrats. As a state that played a pivotal role in the election of Trump it’s going to be interesting to see where things go in this upcoming special election. If Lamb can pull off a victory, it will be yet another sign that this year is the year Democrats manage to take back power.

End Citizens United has made a reputation for itself as one of the most prominent opponents of big money in politics for a reason. You simply can’t find too many out there who have made it clear they have the desire to do what ever they can to give people the final say so in the way that their country is run. Instead, you see corporate lobbyists trying to ensure they provide the majority of funding. This PAC is designed to help people take back their country from the interests that have sought take their voices out of the process.

Conor Lamb is going to be a test run for November. If he wins and he does so by a large margin it’s going to setback Trump’s success in working class America. He has already seen a loss in Alabama with the victory of Doug Jones, but this would be especially upsetting since Pennsylvania was so important to his image. He ran as a man trying to fight for blue collar Americans and he has seen many disappoints in that regard. Coal jobs are not coming back like they used to and issues affecting the people of the 18th district are still there. End Citizens United understands how this is going to change things and they want to be the ones to give Lamb what he needs to win. The road uphill is going to be a difficult one but it will certainly give the movement to bring politics back to the people much needed wins.

 

This is what you call small-dollar grassroots fundraising. Our members are pumped for Conor Lamb!

China has over a billion people. As one of the world’s largest nations, it also has a diverse group of people. The Chinese retail market is huge. Many companies around the world have increasingly realized that they can successfully expand into China. They know that in recent years the average per capita income in China has grown steadily. This puts more money into the average Chinese person’s hands. As a result, many Chinese people are happy to spend money. One company that is presently expanding into this vast market is OSI Group. Officials at this large conglomerate in Aurora, IL have been involved in the Chinese market for over two decades. However, President and Chief Executive Officer David G. McDonald and his team of visionary staffers still see yet more room for expansion in the markets here. They know that the Chinese market is likely to play an even greater role in the future. They also know that Chinese consumers are also likely to look for ways to enjoy a delicious meal even when they are busy. Company officials have come to understand the ever growing power of the market here in the past and see even more growth to come.

Eight Factories

At present, OSI Group operates eight factories in China. They appreciate having a well trained group of employees who are capable of meeting strict deadlines and adhering to tight safety standards. They also appreciate working with a group of workers who are dedicated to the company’s goals in every way possible. Many Chinese people have migrated from the countryside to the larger cities. However, the population of China has still remained constant in many parts of the country. This has helped officials at OSI Group find a willing group of employees in many parts of the country they can find to help them run their factories. Under such circumstances, those who watch this industry closely are not surprised to learn that plans are underway for expansion in yet more areas of China. Company officials at OSI Group plan to open up several additional factories. They are hopeful they can keep expanding in the Chinese market. They know they can provide high quality items for the local consumer market. Officials also know they can have highly effective operations in China that allow them to provide equally high quality food for their consumers in other parts of the globe.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America, (CTCA) is passionate about guiding cancer patients in their unique experiences starting with diagnosis, planning individual treatment, and aftercare and support. CTCA is world renowned in providing state of the art technology and advanced care options which include radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, and immunotherapy. Clinicians at CTCA with experienced cancer care are able to deliver evidence- informed supportive therapies to their patients to help alleviate nausea, fatigue, pain, and various other side effects.

Cancer and Treatment Options offered at Cancer and Treatment Centers of America will depend on the type of cancer an individual has been diagnosed with. Each approach to treatment is individually based, and is never the same from patient to patient. Whether it be lung, breast, colon, prostate, skin, or any other form of cancer, CTCA offers the most up to date and comprehensive treatments and therapies so that patients can make informed decisions and have optimal quality of life.

Lung cancer, for example has treatment options that vary from other types of cancers. It is the second most common type of cancer among American women and men, and is the leading cause of most cancer related deaths than any other cancers combined. Most lung cancers are treated with surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy, sometimes a combination of all three. Clinicians at CTCA use targeted therapy which treats the cancer by focusing in on a specific gene mutation in a person’s tumor cells. Incorporating immunotherapy drugs further triggers the immune system to attack the cancer, but is an option for some, not all patients.

Overall, Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s focus is to devise a patient specific treatment plan for each individual that includes all facets of diagnosis, treatment, and exploratory options so that each and every patient may have all of the necessary resources to move forward in the best treatment options available for their specific needs.
