Technology is always advancing, especially in the field of medicine as new cures and treatments are always in the works. Unfortunately, like any other business out there, things are not always what they seem. This looks like the case for a Biotech company that has introduced a new medical treatment for patients to fight cystic fibrosis. Kerrisdale Capital has issued a negative report on said Biotech company with the backing of Sahm Adrangi, Kerrisdale Founder, and CEO. As a leading investment company and one of the most reputable investors in the country, Sahm Adrangi is often heard about and listen to for his insight.
Proteostasis is the Biotech company that Sahm Adrangi is currently calling into question, as he doesn’t believe their medical research was thorough and even reviewed to the maximum extent. Kerrisdale managed to get a closer look into the biotech company and has determined that their research and claims have not be done on an adequate sample sizing since they only had four patients for testing. What Sahm found was that during the trial period for their testing, these four patients experience severe drops in their overall lung performance. With such a small sample size and data that looks sloppy and certainly not finished, Kerrisdale is calling Proteostasis claims into question.
Sahm Adrangi has invested in many companies over the course of his career and to tremendous success because of his insight and deep research protocols. Before investing in a company or letting others know a company is safe, Sahm takes the time to truly dig into a company. This is how he found Proteostasis’s supposed breakthrough was actually much less than what it seemed at the surface. According to the report from Kerrisdale, there are no results to be found through the biotech company’s data. Also, should the biotech company’s drug fail to work, they stand to lose virtually all of their assets, so the desire to produce profits is extremely high. After the initial Kerrisdale report on Proteostasis, the biotech company’s share value fell more than 15 percent.

Lime Crime is one of the rebel brands of the beauty industry. It was founded by Doe Deere, who prides herself on being a bit of a rebel herself. The company is best known for its high quality lipsticks that literally come in every shade of the rainbow, and then some.
Doe Deere founded Lime Crime with very high standards. She wanted to put out only the best and brightest lipsticks made from the finest ingredients available. She diligently polished her recipe for her lipsticks for years until she felt it was absolutely perfect and ready to release. While she expected Lime Crime to be a small brand, it was immediately scooped up by fans of bright color across the world.
Lime Crime is known for finding innovation in small places. They were the first ever company to show their shades on a real lip, rather than a swatch, and gave women the ability to better judge how their lipstick would look before making a purchase. We’ve all had that horrific moment when we think a shade will be absolutely perfect in the store, only to apply some at home and see it absolutely clashes with your look. It is small innovations like this that have left long-established makeup brands struggling to keep up with the new standards Lime Crime has set.
Doe recently sat down with Guest of a Guest where she gave advice on how to achieve your dreams. Her advice was simple, yet astute. She encouraged people everywhere to listen to the voice inside of them that is screaming for them to follow their true passions. For many of us, myself included, this can be a difficult thing to do. It often means setting out on a less-beaten path and trusting in yourself to succeed.
Doe also spoke about how Lime Crime came into existence. She was a business woman at an early age. Her first company sold temporary tattoos to her classmates when she was growing up in Russia.
Doe credits her success with Lime Crime solely to her courage to follow her own voice that really wanted to put out amazing makeup. Even though it was the era of nude makeup styles, she boldly entered the market with her tool chest of bright blues and deep mauves. Lime Crime will never float the mainstream and continues to thrive and innovate under the leadership of Doe Deere. https://www.linkedin.com/in/doedeere

From a Great Investor’s Perspective
According to Warren Buffet, it is important to embrace a bottom-up approach in long-term investment. However, the ‘active versus passive’ index returns debate continue to rage war against this method. Timothy Armour, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Group, while giving his view on Mr.Buffet’s approach say that mutual fund offers volatile risks and their opportunity cost is continually being underestimated. Although the active funds have performed dismally in the markets, there are impressive performances from Americas Funds. While there is no clear-cut way of knowing which funds will work best, Armour comments that research has shown that small expenses coupled with high manager ownership are the indicators of exceptional fund managers.

This shift has seen some types of investments which were defensive for previous years start to roll-over and various other sector rotations. Armour remarks that it’s hard to say where the market is heading to with the challenges facing globalization not just in the US but also in other countries.
