Amazon, Shervin Pishevar, and Data Management Opportunities in Blockchain

In a recent news headline Amazon made the public aware of its intentions to compete in the transport industry. This is a long time coming. Over the past several years, Amazon has been vocal about its analysis of transport costs. It continually called out companies like UPS and FedEx, saying that its deliverables operations would be better conducted by Amazon. Some industry experts scoffed at Amazon’s assertions. They point to a lack of infrastructure and experience. It is the experience that will probably prove to be overblown.

Before looking a bit closer at an Amazon transport division, consider the insights of Shervin Pishevar. He believes blockchain technology will play a significant role in the future of online business. Few people are aware of how useful blockchain applications are proving to be. Amazon and discerning economic forecasters like Shervin Pishevar recognize the importance of increasing the efficiency of data management operations. This is the key. Shervin Pishevar focused more on the applications for small business. He even called out Amazon over its dominance that make it comparable to a monopoly.

While Amazon’s dominance is a pressing issue, the battle looming in the transport industry deserves its own discussion. Yes, Amazon successfully competing with UPS and FedEx would further its monopolistic agenda. However, the fault might be that of these existing transport companies failing to realize what Shervin Pishevar highlighted as an important transition in the global economy.

Blockchain technology represents a transformation in the way data transactions occur. Its ability to manipulate, record, secure, and effortlessly move data is so disruptive that traditional businesses are aggressively exploring their own private blockchain applications. From IBM and Oracle to Alibaba, any company concerned with logistical efficiency recognizes a new future in data transactions. Amazon is not merely one of these interested companies. Rather, Amazon’s cloud services have already begun adopting blockchain technology. It is marketing these services to existing clientele. The timing of Amazon’s blockchain applications and entrance into the challenging logistical industry of package delivery are not likely a coincidence. Existing companies need to take notice and adopt blockchain to compete.

QuinStreet Sure To Fail With Sahm Adrangi’s Opinino

QuinStreet, Inc. is a mid-sized corporation with roughly 600 employees under its belt, $297.7 million in revenue from fiscal year 2016, and some 26,000 shares of public stock floating around on NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange. Admittedly, the company is larger than a majority of businesses across the United States of America. It also is a member of Standard & Poor’s 600 Component index, a group of the 600 best publish shares across the entirety of the world of finance.

One more thing – the share price of QuinStreet was no more than $3.75 less than a year ago. Today, the price is up to just short of $14.00. For those who don’t understand stock market performance very well, just know that QuinStreet has performed considerably well over that year-long period, effectively earning its investors three times as much extra money as the price of the share when most first bought in when the share price as low.

However, one think financial services experts always hold in the back of their minds as a possibility that high-performing companies’ financial statements and public share prices could appear as such solid investments because such organizations engage in unethical, unfair, or illegal activity.

Sahm Adrangi is a financial expert that shares the aforementioned line of thinking. Although the public stock of QuinStreet is likely rated as a buy or strong buy across most financial advice and information-storing sites, Mr. Sahm Adrangi feels strongly that QuinStreet’s prospects as a stock purchase are resoundingly poor.

Mr. Adrangi pointed out in a negative report of QuinStreet, Inc., which trades as (QNST) on both the NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange, roughly two months ago that even though QuinStreet had offered public stock for eight-odd years, its performance only turned belly-down in the past eight months.

CIO of Kerrisdale Capital Sahm Adrangi further shared that he and his firm feel that QuinStreet is engaging in fraudulent business practices because a bulk of its clicks come from just one website.

That website pays its visitors to do nothing more than click on advertisements through the site, in turn boosting QuinStreet’s performance. Sahm Adrangi makes a great case.
