In an effort to increase its revenues and increase its relevance in today’s market, Kodak announced its creation of KODAKCoin and KODAKOne. These are the new business channels Kodak will use to launch into the cryptocurrency market and use blockchain technology for securing copyright protection for images. Although coin offerings have spurred growth in many businesses, Sahm Adrangi doesn’t feel that this action will give Kodak stockholders any benefit nor does he feel that it will increase Kodak’s value, he also feels that Kodak’s current cash structure and ineffective leadership will doom any investments Kodak makes in the with this strategy.
Sahm Adrangi formed his “Negative Report” through in-depth research into Kodak’s financial packages and SEC filings. Referencing Kodak’s declining profits and its general lack of business fundamentals and leadership he believes that there won’t be enough revenue generated from its blockchain ventures to offset a history of poor performance. Sahm Adrangi is also concerned with the actions of the Kodak board of directors which granted its members restricted stock the day before it made the KODAKOne announcement. Sahm Adrangi feels that the Kodak board risks SEC investigations and feels its executives and board members have not acted in the best interests of the stockholders and feels this lack of judgment will be detrimental to Kodak’s hope for future growth.
Sahm Adrangi has provided the information about Kodak through one of his “Negative Reports” which he publishes regularly about stock opportunities that don’t line up. An experienced investment manager, he created Kerrisdale Capital Management LLC to share his investment advice and focus on long-term investment growth. Currently managing a fund of more than $300 million, Sahm Adrangi keeps abreast of current market news and issues his “Negative Reports” whenever he encounters irregularities and unsubstantiated claims. With his years of experience and deep analytics, he is able to maintain a stable investment fund and provide his clients with increased gains.

I think the world is getting more centralized, which opens itself to a lot of risks. These risks could at first glance be nothing, but they all add up and contribute to making you more vulnerable to bigger threats to your survival. It seems to be acceptable to enjoy all these pleasures of the modern market, but the truth of the matter is, the more technology we have, the riskier things become. This is the reason why we should be cautious, and this is the reason why Securus Technologies is offering a lot of things at its disposal to get the protection it wants to give to its customers.
The Drone Technology Platform
Right now, the world knows that Securus Technologies is the leading developer, producer, and distributor of world-class security solutions to administer justice in prison and to offer the kind of protection to inmates’ facilities that no other provider can. The tragedy today, though, is that just because things are getting easier now doesn’t mean that it’s now easy to address all the new modern risks today. One of those risks is the drones that hover over the prisons and drop off contraband items, including drugs, cell phones, and guns. Fortunately, Securus Technologies is right now developing what is called the Anti-Drone Technology system that can stop any malicious drone from flying over the prisons and drop contraband. This technology is a product of 18 years of research, which makes it a leading tech solution from a company that can spearhead the fight against drones.
On a different note, Securus Technologies just won the Stevie Awards for its impressive appraisal and address of the right ways to increase a company’s sales performance and customer service execution. With such 2018 Stevie Awards, Securus can stamp itself with a high position that no other service can seem to offer today.
Jacob Jay Gottlieb studied medicine at the University of New York. This was his first step to making his dream to have a career in medicine real. After getting his degree, he took an internship with St. Vincent’s Hospital. In as much as he was doing well as far as establishing his medical career was concerned, he wasn’t satisfied. His lifelong desire to becoming a financial expert got the better of him. He quit medicine just as his career was taking off to pursue his dream in the field of finance.
When he decided to shift his career from medicine to finance, many thought he was crazy. Gottilieb says that what they do not understand is that doctors and stock brokers both share the same characteristics; both are risk takes. In diagnosing a patient and administering a treatment, the doctor takes a risk. There is a possibility of something going wrong with the treatment or the diagnosis. In the unlikely event that happens, the doctor has a responsibility to manage the risk that has presented itself. The stockbroker also takes a risk in advising a client to buy stock from a given company. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the investment, the stock broker has to find a way to manage the risk.
Shifting to economics was not just an obsession that grew overnight; it is an interest he developed at an early stage in life. While still in 7th grade, he won a contest that required him to pick stock. Each time he was able to pick stock that went up. His father being an economics professor at City University, New York got so impressed by the boy’s ability that he opened him an investment trading account. His interest in finance saw him sell golfers beverages at a local golf course. This gave him valuable experience while still at an early age.
To equip himself for finance, he got his CFA from the Association for Investment Management and Research and later got his degree in economics from Brown University, Rhode Island. Jacob Gottlieb’s journey in his investment career was not a walk in the park. He started as a buy-side analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. LLC, he then moved on to become the portfolio manager at Merlin financial. Jacob worked with several companies before becoming one of the founding members at Balyasny Asset Management, L.P. Throughout his career, he acquired experiences that have proved helpful in establishing his own firm, Visium Asset Management, LLC.
Apart from being a renowned financial expert, Jacob Gottlieb is a philanthropist. He works with covenant house to help street children come out of the streets. Taking street children off the streets and giving them an opportunity to make something out of their lives is more than a venture to give back to society. It comes out of a desire to afford someone the same opportunities he had growing up. This is only one of the many charities Mr Gottlieb is part of.
