Shervin Pishevar says more quantitative easing is inevitable

Shervin Pishevar is one of the most widely respected venture capitalists in the world today. He is the founder and CEO of Investment company, the firm behind the creation of Uber, Airbnb, Virgin Hyperloop and many other huge tech success stories. Shervin Pishevar has also acted as an independent entrepreneur, founding companies like WebOS, Ionside and Social Gaming Network.

But Shervin Pishevar is not knowns just for his impressive business acumen. In what little spare time he finds, Shervin Pishevar also operates one of the most-followed Twitter feeds in the tech industry. He has more than 100,000 followers, who hang on his every insightful word. He recently engaged in a 21-hour tweet storm, in which he digressed on a large number of highly relevant topics.

One of the concrete predictions that came out of that Twitter-fed consciousness stream was the fact that Pishevar believes that a new round of quantitative easing is all but inevitable. He says that even though the Fed has promised to engage in the opposite program, quantitative tightening, it is almost certain that the central bank will respond to any downturn in the market with a new infusion of cheap credit into the market. And it will carry this program out in the usual way, buying massive amounts of Treasure securities from its constituent branches.

Pishevar says that the Fed will never stand by as the market crashes back to 2012 or sooner levels. The central bank’s quantitative easing program, says Pishevar, is the only tool in its arsenal that has consistently proven to be able to work. And this means that it is the one tool to which the bank will inevitably resort when a market crash drives general calamity in the broader economy.

But Pishevar warns that this time things may be considerably different. He says that quantitative easing is losing its edge. He points to the fact that foreign purchases of Treasury securities have dramatically fallen off so far this year. And he believes that further market interventions could spark serious hyperinflation in the years to come.

Silicon Valley’s Investment Star Shervin Pishevar Is Tweeting And It’s Not Good News

When Shervin Pishevar was a Menlo Ventures partner he decided to gamble on a new startup called, Uber. Pishevar invested more than $25 million in Uber back when no one thought people would like the concept. Today, Shervin Pishevar’s original investment in Uber is worth more than $5 billion. That’s the kind of success that makes ordinary investors turn into Marvel-type super investment heroes.

Shervin Pishevar left Menlo Ventures to start Investment company in 2013. By that time, he had more notches on his investment belt. Tumblr was one of those notches. Google just bought Tumblr for an insane amount of money. Warby Parker and Postmates were two other Shervin Pishevar picks, and those winners put him in the “Investors Hall of Fame. Even though Pishevar left Investment company at the end of 2017, he is still a rock star in Silicon Valley. But that status didn’t stop him from saying Silicon Valley is losing its touch. Mr. Pishevar’s 21-hour tweet storm threw Silicon valley under the startup bus. Shervin believes “the valley” isn’t as sharp as it was a few years ago. Pishevar thinks other countries are going to make Silicon Valley look like Death Valley in the investment world.

Another Shervin Pishevar tweet about cheap money being dead hit a nerve with some of his followers. They see interest rates climbing, and they see inflation working its way through the U.S. economy. And now that Trump’s tariffs are in full force, consumers will have less money to save or invest. Shervin didn’t give stock investors much hope either. His tweet about the market losing more than 6,000-points in the foreseeable future has investors thinking twice.

The Shervin Pishevar tweet storm gave investors a lot to think about. Pishevar thinks all assets are full of hot air, and the hot air is about to explode leaving a mass of tattered investors in its wake. Some investors think his tweet about Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, and Amazon made sense. Shervin thinks those companies are too big. The government should step in and break up those companies, according to a Pishevar tweet.

Sahm Adrangi Is Taking The Short Side With Proteostasis With Latest Negative Report From Kerrisdale

Sahm Adrangi is a well-known man in the investing world thanks to his many accomplishments as an investor and his success at Kerrisdale Capital. This private investment firm invests in various companies around the world. Today, being able to identify quality companies in the stock market is a challenge, and Sahm Adrangi is standing out where not many can. Kerrisdale has managed to excel and come out on top of the S&P 500 for several successive quarters.

On a normal basis, Kerrisdale Capital puts out reports on various companies in the market, and their latest was quite the negative report against biotech firm Proteostasis. This biotech company is home to Cambridge and has recently been making claims of a new breakthrough in terms of cystic fibrosis. Their new drug in development, PTI-428, is aimed at helping increasing lung performance in patients.

Unfortunately for Proteostasis, Kerrisdale was not impressed with their figures and the data they released, so Sahm Adrangi decided to do a little more digging into the company. Upon even closer examination of the results of the company, their actual test sample was extremely small. So small in fact, PTI-428 was only tested on four patients. This is not nearly enough to make such claims the company has been making, causing their company stock value to go up.

Kerrisdale took quickly to their report to get it out as soon as possible to inform the public and many investors out there of what is really behind this biotech company, Proteostasis. According to Sahm Adrangi, their drug cocktail is most likely an ineffective drug that works better as a placebo. Unfortunately for Proteostasis, the majority of their company value is invested in their product, which means they will lose more than 70% of their company share value when it comes out that PTI-428 is not effective.

As more companies and investors are becoming aware of the nature of this biotech company, their share values continue to drop and will likely push the company off the map in the near future.
