Ted Bauman Provides Insight Into Next Stock Market Crash

Since early 2013 Ted Bauman has been an editor at Banyan Hill Publishing. He writes about investing with an eye towards low-risk strategies and protecting assets. Earlier in his career, he spent several years in South Africa where he was an executive for a number of nonprofits. He is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, earning degrees in economics and history, and has a degree in business administration he earned at the State University of New York. He also attended Georgia State University, graduating in 2001 with an MBA in finance.

In one of his recent articles, Ted Bauman wrote about three possible outcomes from the next crash in the US stock market. He says that he sees the stock market in the United States as quite overvalued. He says that the S&P currently has a CAPE ratio of 32 which nearly matches its record level. The only time the CAPE has been higher is just before the dot-com recession of 2000. Ted Bauman says that the normal ratio is about 17 which means that if the US stock market reverts to mean the value of it will drop by about 35%. This is the first way he sees the recession as playing out.

The second way is if in the bond market short-term yields start to exceed longer-term yields which is a sure-fire sign that the US stock market will soon enter a bear market. Ted Bauman says he can also see a crash in the markets, a partial recovery, and then another collapse. He says in this scenario investors should wait it out rather than making decisions in panic-mode.

Ted Bauman is going to be one of the featured speakers at the upcoming Total Wealth Symposium 2018. He plans to touch on a number of topics such as how to protect assets, invest conservatively, and maintain privacy from the eyes of the government and large corporations. He has promoted this appearance on his social media accounts such as on his Facebook page and on Twitter.

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.
