It has been known as a fundamentally-oriented investment organization manager which has its aim at investments that have long-term value. It is none other than Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC which is an active member of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. It is headed and managed by Sahm Adrangi. He also happens to be the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of the same investment manager.
Mr. Sahm Adrangi founded Kerrisdale in 2009 and has taken the firm from one development to another and has been involved in various aspects of the firm. The private investment manager has been involved in publishing several negative reports expressing its short positions in certain market situations. Recently, it explained its thought on NASDAQ: the QNST stock of an internet marketing company called QuinStreet Inc. which has risen four times than it was. This has blinded the eyes of the investors who now think that the company is on the right track. Nevertheless, according to Sahm Adrangi of Kerrisdale, the sustainability of QuinStreet is from some fake web traffic. As the client clicks and fills their form, QuinStreet’s revenue increases at the expense of an innocent client.
Kerrisdale also expressed their short position in the stock NYSE:KODK which belongs to Eastman Kodak Company which is basically involved in imaging and printing. After an announcement that the company will have a platform in the blockchain technology, their stock has risen with 187%. Nevertheless, Sahm Adrangi argues that this is just an ICO craze chase which is meant to cover up the poor fundamentals and capital structures of Kodak Company but it will fail terribly.
Sahm Adrangi has also some negative report on the stock NASDAQ: PTI which belongs to Proteostasis Therapeutics, Inc. The company is a biopharmaceutical that is involved in development stages of drugs that treat cystic fibrosis and currently testing PTI-428 drug. After being granted Breakthrough Therapy and Orphan Drug of PTI-428 by FDA, its stock rose by almost 100%. However, Kerrisdale argues that the drug is ineffective and Proteostasis Therapeutics is not disclosing all the information to the public about the PTI-428 drug.

Don Ressler is well aware that the fitness boom has taken over the world. This booming wellness industry has projected that the U.S. apparel market for athletes will cross over $100 billion by 2020.
Hence athletic wear is not just a clothing trend, but a lifestyle now. This is why the Fabletics brand has been able to find a unique niche in this crowded space on Pando.com. They have a unique e-commerce business model to provide technically precise athletic wear that is cheaper than the competition. Next is a co-founder like Kate Hudson who can have her influence as a style icon.
Fabletics is a part of JustFab which is a portfolio of brands. JustFab has generated $500 million in sales this year. The Co-CEO of JustFab is Don Ressler who knows how to make all the right moves for this brand.
He has the unique ability to be able to spot trends. Don Ressler and his wife have a passion for fitness. They wore athletic wear a lot and realized the huge gap in the market. Besides, these were not very fashionable. Also, they were really overpriced. He got together with his business partner, Adam Goldenberg. They mapped out the business as they saw its huge potential. They knew that people want comfortable clothes, in which they look good too. But they are not willing to pay exorbitant amounts for them. Hence Don Ressler decided to carve out space here.
They met with Kate Hudson. She had a vision for a lifestyle brand that was fashionable, and this is how Fabletics came about.
Fabletics has become a key player today in this category. It is a fashion-athletic brand. They are not focusing on being a yoga brand or a tennis brand or a cycling brand. This is a premium product that provides great performance. But it is fairly priced when compared to its competitor. Besides, it is a stylish product available at a price that allows people to feel good while buying it.
Don Ressler also spoke about the fact that they have made online shopping fun and stylish. But they are well aware of the fact that many people are not comfortable doing online shopping. This is why the brick and mortar stores are an integral part of their business model. This way Fabletics is able to reach out to all kinds of customers at varying levels.
