SahmAdrangi is a successful investor and the Chief Executive Officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management. Recently, Kerrisdale raised close to $100 interested investors to wager that a single stock will fail. The interesting thing about the investment is the fact that most co-investments center around helping to recover a company rather than betting on a company’s failure. Mr. Adrangi pointed out that the money was raised quickly and that this signals the public’s interest in the wager. At this current time, Adrangi, along with an analyst at his company, are looking to educate public about what his company knows about the stock they have chosen to bet against. According to reports, the company they are shorting will be revealed at a later date, and Kerrisdale has already started to buy some of the stock in order to begin the process.
SahmAdrangi not only publishes research, but he also is a public speaker who enlightens people about different investment and shorting opportunities. Many people have attended different conferences just to hear him speak, and some of the conferences he has taken part of include the Value Investing Conference, the Sohn Conference, the Distressed Debt Investing Conference, and the Activist Investor Conference. He has also appeared on Bloomberg and CNBC and has been the center of pieces that were published by the Washington Post, BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times.
SahmAdrangi, through Kerrisdale, focuses his talent on researching and bringing to light information related to companies that are just beginning to get started. He has featured Therapeutics, Pulse Biosciences, Zafgen, and Bavarian Nordic among many others. While he focuses some of his research on biotechnology industry, he also looks closer at mining companies. In 2014, he got a lot of people’s attention when he demonstrated holes in a service offered by Globalstar by publishing articles, presenting his findings to a live audience, and through a webcast.
