Stream Energy, a major supplier of energy services based in Dallas Texas and a long-time participant in corporate philanthropy, was featured on Patch earlier this year for their company’s philanthropic efforts through the founding of Stream Cares, a dedicated corporate charity foundation that put a formal face on Stream Energy’s long history of ongoing philanthropic activities.
Featured in the Patch’s article are many examples of Stream Cares’ more recent philanthropic efforts. After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help alleviate the suffering of those who lost their homes. While many corporations simply throw money at a problem and walk away, Stream Energy decided to utilize their charity foundation to get far more involved and provide a positive experience for those affected, and particularly for the children affected by the storm. In order to do so, Stream Cares covered the cost for more than 1,000 children to attend the annual event Splash for Hope.
In another tragedy, when multiple tornadoes struck Northern Texas before Christmas in 2016, Stream Energy associates actively teamed up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for those in need of assistance. The company then matched the funds that had been raised to double the amount gathered from donations.
However, Stream Energy does not only assist during natural disasters and tragedies. Ongoing efforts to support our military and veterans is also a priority to them. One example of those efforts is Operation Once in a Lifetime, where Stream Cares stepped in to provide financial and moral support for veterans and donated transportation for the less fortunate veterans to be able to attend a special lunch at a popular Texas restaurant. Stream Cares then co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military members and stream associates got personally involved by supporting the girls through the event.
While Texas is among the least generous states, Stream Energy, through their Stream Cares foundation, is doing their best to make up for the lack of philanthropic and altruistic efforts around the state, and they regularly make it a core principal of their daily operations.
Shervin Pishevar, the founder of Sharper Capital, seemed to be optimistic and pessimistic about the future of the United States economy in his fifty tweets that took around 21 hours to complete. In a session that seemed to portray gapes in the current administration’s weakness in decision making, the Uber investor seemed to spell doom on some of the policies that have since taken center stage of the new administration. The investor uses the current state of the American economy to forecast what will happen in the next few years and the overall future of the country’s economy.
Shervin Pishevar tweets acknowledge the existing undesirable conditions such as the spreading inflation that is hurting almost every family in the country. It is true that the country has been experiencing inflation over the last couple of years. However, the government is responding by implementing radical policies that seems to rock other nations out of arguably the largest economy in the world. These policies are there trying to enclose people with higher purchasing power to small goods and services in the country, which causes inflation.
Other issues that are facing the country such as low rates of employment and the systematic economic crisis seems to be addressed by poorly formulated and implemented policies that have never worked in other countries around the world. Shervin Pishevar notes that the declining state of the country’s stock market cannot be changed through local solutions that are biased towards the progress of other nations. These trends can only be resolved by creating an open market that allows products and services from other countries.
Shervin Pishevar perceives the current trends will continue to prevail and no radical policy will bring immediate changes. However, there is grimmer of home to the economy that seems to be on its deathbed that the future means useful to the American citizens. Focusing on the growth of the United States economies should be of paramount importance rather than giving much attention to policies that will prevent the growth of other nations. However, failure in some systems should set an opportunity for different strategies to be implemented.
One of the most enervating challenges in the world of investment is in picking the right stocks or shares to invest in. If you put a short position on something that’s deeply valuable, then you might be missing a lot. When you overvalue a share and put an unjustified hype assessment on it, you risk losing a lot of your capital. Fortunately, Sahm Adrangi of Kerrisdale Capital can help you pick the right stocks.
In an assessment from PRNewswire, it is shown that the financial officer of Kerrisdale Sahm Adrangi has already put a negative report on Quinstreet, Inc. Despite the hype and unjustified assessment that Quinstreet Inc got lately, Mr. Adrangi believes that there’s a lot of suspicious behavior in the company’s performance. Phony traffic, deliberate tampering of website visits and other proprietary problems are just some of the things that consist the negative assessment that Quinstreet deserves.
Mr. Adrangi feels that he has to warn the investors of Quinstreet of such misleading behavior and misconceptions. With the assessment on the low-level business model of QuinStreet, he can help clients and investors veer away from putting too much trust on QuinStreet. Also, it is even shown by the calculation of Sahm Adrangi that most of the traffic coming in as leads for Quinstreet may only be from just one potential lead. All the supposedly active business engagement that the firm declares to have enjoyed may only be coming from one single client. This may be a sign of a sham behavior that could strike a lot of damage to investors.
It’s also noteworthy to say here that Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC builds a good reputation in all its negative reports because it is value-oriented, fundamentals-centered and focuses on the long-term value of such investments.
Sahm Adrangi’s reputation as Kerrisdale’s Chief Investment Officer is also robust. He is based in New York City and came out of college with a degree in B.A. Economics from Yale University. You may even have heard his name as the man who worked out the bankruptcy restructuring of Chanin Capital Partners, representing for bank debt holders and other clients who are distressed in their banking credentials.
