Shervin Pishevar Goes on “Bizarre” Tweet Storm

Shervin Pishevar, well-known as an early investor in Uber, recently went on a tweet storm that lasted a full 21 hours. Known as a man of many words, has remained quiet lately until his recent, and some say bizarre, tweet marathon. In December of last year, Shervin Pishevar announced he was resigning from Sherpa Capital.

 

When the markets suffered a sudden drop back in February, Pishevar tweeted out 50 points as to why he believes U.S. markets will drop 6,000 points over the course of the year. He also predicted that bitcoin will drop to between $2,000-$5,000. He also talked about SpaceX and immigration laws.

Shervin Pishevar started by tweeting that he would explain in detail why he expects markets to drop by 6,000 points. However, after the initial tweet, he started tweeting about how the death Silicon Valley is on the horizon. Afterward, he moved on to explain that his opponents are “out to get him,” and that he will not allow them to drag the success of Sherpa Capital through the mud. On the flip side, he did outline some predictions for the U.S. economy. Here are some of the quotes from Shervin Pishevar.

 

“The markets will see a ripple effect with strong volatility in bonds.”

“The bitcoin crash will continue.”

“The stranglehold California has on tech and innovation is at an end.”

“The U.S. is poised to lose China and other countries, specifically in infrastructure.”

“The biggest companies will continue to have the power as startups in the U.S. fall.”

 

He also believes that volatility indexes and managed funds are primed for failure. He also went on to explain how the U.S. economy and global economy are separate entities and how the U.S. economy’s “isolation” makes it impossible to sustain any upward trends. He also tweeted that Google, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft are now monopolies.

Seattle Genetics & Dr. Clay Siegall: The Ultimate Duo in Cancer Research

Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in history. Millions of people have lost their lives fighting this illness, and many people have had their limbs amputated in the process. Cancer can manifest from just about any organ in the human body such as the lungs, the brain, the liver or the prostate. With newer and better treatment options available, the mortality rate has drastically decreased in recent years, but the fight is far from over. This is where Dr. Clay Siegall comes into the frame, and he has played a key role in eradicating cancer. Dr. Siegall has a broad educational-base thanks to his degrees in Zoology and in Genetics.

Dr. Siegall is the founder of Seattle Genetics, and he has built this company from the ground-up. Seattle Genetics has been around for 20 years, and it has grown in a substantial way. In the early days, the company was made-up of only a small crew of individuals, but as of today, the company has nearly 900 employees. Seattle Genetics generates large amounts of capital on an annual basis. As of today, the company has a market value of over $10 billion. That’s right! The company earns revenue through a variety of ways such as from production partnerships, from the selling of its very own proprietary drugs and from the licensing of its technologies. Dr. Siegall has even helped to bring in extra billions of dollars from private fundraising.

What more can you say about this phenomenal man? What more can you say about Seattle Genetics? This dynamic duo has certainly rewritten the books on how to effectively fight cancer, but the duo’s work isn’t completely done. As long as cancer is around, Dr. Clay Siegall will be on the frontline of this valiant battle.
