Institutional Investor Sahm Adrangi Explains Why He Is Negative on QuinStreet

On April 11, 2018, institutional investor Sahm Adrangi issued a negative report on QuinStreet, Inc. In this report, he explained why his company, Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC, had taken a short position on this firm. QuinStreet is an internet marketing firm headquartered in Foster City, California. Their stock has quadrupled in recent times and he says his analysis shows this is very unjustified. This company hadn’t been doing well for a long period of time but investors believe this company has been turned around and is doing well. Sahm Adrangi says this is an illusion as QuinStreet has a lot of fake web traffic.

QuinStreet’s business model involves being in the middle of the transaction between a website and online advertisers. Someones go to one of these websites, such as to shop for a new credit card, and QuinStreet manages the ads they see while doing so. However, Sahm Adrangi says they have an outdated business model and this company is very unlikely to survive as how online advertising is managed is rapidly evolving. He also pointed out that almost all the money QuinStreet is generating is coming from just one of their clients, something that the management of this firm doesn’t talk about.

Sahm Adrangi says that his research and that of his company’s analysts show that their recent increase in revenues has been faked. He says QuinStreet has been using malware redirects, bogus leads, and other sketchy ways of generating traffic to their client’s websites. To find out his information he and his team talked to people who used to work for QuinStreet who revealed what was really going on at this company.

Sahm Adrangi, a Yale University graduate, and been in the financial industry for over 10 years. He started out as Deutsche Bank where he worked in the leveraged finance investment banking department. He then moved to Chanin Capital Partners where he was an analyst in their restructuring investment banking group. Just before opening his own investment firm he had worked for Chanin Capital Partners where he was also an analyst.

Lacey and Larkin Discuss Joe Arpaio and His Pardon

Susan R. Bolton is a woman who serves as a judge in the United States right now. She works for a district court located in the Southwestern state of Arizona. Bolton’s actions essentially alarmed no one in the fall of 2017. She gave her OK to Joe Arpaio’s pardon by the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Arpaio was Maricopa County’s sheriff before.

He got a July 2017 conviction that was part of the “criminal contempt” classification. This was for dismissing a command from a federal judge. The command was associated with a lawsuit that took place in 2007. It focused on racial profiling. Arpaio got his pardon shortly before his sentencing was to take place. It was a matter of weeks.

Bolton’s choice ends the newest phase of Arpaio’s story. One big part of his story revolves around the contentious arrests of two people who used to own the Phoenix New Times. These people are Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

Larkin and Lacey headed the publication as it published many pieces that discussed the sheriff. Arpaio had been the sheriff for approaching a quarter of a century. Lacey made his opinions regarding the whole situation crystal clear. He agreed with Rex Tillerson and concluded that President Trump isn’t wise.

He stated that the President’s Arpaio pardon only functions to confirm that to the world. He added more by indicating that the situation was the ideal union of a pair of people who are unprincipled and dishonest. Lacey called Arpaio a sheriff who promoted racial prejudice and the harming of human beings. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

He listed a number of things that took place while Arpaio was the sheriff. He talked about severe prison settings. He even mentioned something that was called a “tent city.” People compared it to something that was straight out of a grisly war scene.

Larkin is certainly no Arpaio lover. He remarked that he was horrific as far as imprisoning individuals went. He remarked that he was equally horrific in his sheriff position. He did say, though, that Arpaio had political abilities. He even expressed that he thinks that he paved the way for President Trump’s current position.

Lacey thinks that President Trump completed the pardon as a means of getting the approval of the people who appreciate him in the United States.

Larkin and Lacey got a total $3.75 million from Maricopa County for their settlement. They did a lot with this money as well. They employed it to set up a group that’s called the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. This organization offers grants to groups that focus on the rights of migrants in the region.

It assists groups that are based in all different parts of Arizona. Larkin and Lacey have not left the journalism world permanently in any way. They’re actually diving deeper into it by putting “Front Page Confidential” together. This is a site that delves into things that interfere with the First Amendment and freedom of speech in the United States.
