Shah Capital Unloads GNC Holdings Inc (GNC), Buys Rival Vitamin Shoppe Inc (VSI) Instead


Himanshu H. Shah founded Shah Capital Management in 2005  and is currently its President and Chief Investment Officer. The fund seeks to invest in significantly undervalued assets, turnaround situations when the market misunderstood an industry’s or company’s plan, emerging companies that can exhibit strong growth, and disruptive business sectors. Shah Capital, which has discretionary assets under management of $248.18 million as of the beginning of 2017, also engages in activist investing. It is currently trying to take private UTStarcom Holdings Corp (NASDAQ:UTSI), having formed a consortium with Hong Liang Lu and Tengling Ti. At the end of March, the consortium made a non-binding offer to take UTStarcom Holdings Corp (NASDAQ:UTSI) private for $2.15 per share.

Shah Capital’s founder, President and CIO, Himanshu H. Shah has more than 25 years of experience of investing in US and international markets. Aside from Mr. Shah, the fund’s management team also includes Richard J. Callaghan, director of client relations and marketing, Ke Chen, director of Greater China Operation, director of research Don Espey, director of compliance and risk management Chaya Rao, director of private investments Shalin Y. Shah, and senior associate Marie Raitz.

According to its latest 13F filing, Shah Capital has a relatively small equity portfolio, with just 13 positions, although they are fairly diversified across sectors. The equity portfolio is worth $198.75 million as of the end of September. According to our calculations, Shah Capital’s stock picks posted a weighted average loss of 8.3% in the first six months of 2017. However, because the fund’s stock picks had a strong second half of 2016 (they registered a weighted average return of nearly 30% in the third quarter), the return over the 12-month period ended June 30 stands at 19.64%.

During the third quarter, Shah Capital closed its positions in Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ:JASO), and GNC Holdings Inc (NYSE:GNC). What’s interesting is that Shah Capital initiated a single position during the third quarter – in Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI), which is a retailer of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and supplements, and operates in the same industry as GNC Holdings Inc (NYSE:GNC), in which the fund unloaded its entire stake that had previously contained 1.10 million shares. At the end of September, Shah Capital held 1.29 million shares of Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) worth $6.91 million.

Both Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) and GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) have been struggling lately. Both stocks are down significantly over the last five years as companies can pick up their revenue growth. It seems like an industry-wide problem cause by consumers losing their faith in vitamins and supplements. In 2015 and 2016, there were talks about the merger of both companies, which was viewed as a solutions to both companies’ problems. One of the largest shareholders of GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) last year was activist fund Eminence Capital, led by Ricky Sandler, although it unloaded its entire stake during the first quarter of 2016. Earlier this year, it was also reported that private equity firm KKR was interested in buying GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) and had been discussing with Chinese pharmaceutical firm Sinopharm and investment company Fosun regarding GNC. It was even suggested that a merger between GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC) and Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) under a private umbrella would make sense.

Shah Capital has not made any announcements regarding its plans in Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI), but given the background, we can assume that it certainly has some plans to try and turn things around at the company.

On the next page, we are going to take a look at some of the largest holdings in Shah Capital Management’s equity portfolio.

Are vitamin drips actually a load of expensive crap?


Are vitamin drips actually a load of expensive crap?
(Picture: ivplus.us/Instagram)

We’ve all woken up after a night on the gin and wished that someone would just flush our bodies out from the inside.

You’re never drinking again, you’re never getting 3am KFC again. From now, on you’re only having water and vegetables and vitamins.

And on Made In Chelsea, they love a good old ‘Drip and Chill’ – getting an IV drip of vitamins to recover from their hedonistic lifestyles.

Ages ago Jamie was filmed having one and more recently, Victoria has appeared having a cocktail of vitamins and minerals being injected into her veins.

Are vitamin drips actually a load of expensive crap?
(Picture: E4)

I tried one myself – in Chelsea – a short while ago.

Promising buckets of energy and overall wellness, the clinic I visited said that within a few hours of having the drip, I’d feel better than I had done in a long time.

‘I’m going to feel FANTASTIC,’ I thought as I ran down the King’s Road towards the clinic.

On arrival, I had a needle jammed into my arm and was hooked up to an alarmingly orange bag of fluids which took about 20 minutes to get into my veins. It was a pretty uncomfortable procedure but it would be worth it….right?

After the consultation, I left slightly bruised (nothing new – that’s what happens after most blood tests) and was told that I’d feel the effects in a few hours.

By that evening, I felt at best nothing and at worst like I was starting to get a cold.

The next day, the same. The next week, the same.

The drip, in my experience, did sod all except turn my pee orange. I may as well as have had a Berocca.

We asked Push Doctor for an expert opinion on whether the drips really do have restorative powers, or if they are no better than drinking a pint of water with a Berocca in it.

‘The focus of Drip and Chill is to fast-track nutrients into your bloodstream, so hydration isn’t necessarily the main goal,’ says Push Doctor’s Dr Dan Robertson.

‘However, it does claim to make you feel rejuvenated and full of energy, so the overall effect is the same.’

But Push Doctor is with me on this one – IV vitamin infusions are a load of codswallop.

‘While some vitamins can only be administered by injection, this is certainly not the case for the majority of them. Indeed, some vitamins need metabolising before they offer any benefit to your body.

‘When your body receives a high amount of vitamins or minerals in a single Drip and Chill dose, it tends to just filter out the majority of them via your kidneys or liver, because they can’t be stored in your body for use at a later time. You just lose them.’

Are IV vitamin drips even healthy?

Nutritionalist, Will Hawkins, doesn’t seem to think so.

‘A “cockatil” of vitamins like this can risk reaching toxic levels’, he warns.

‘In particular, your body can’t handle any more than 2,000mg a day of Vitamin C. Any more may cause diarrhoea, nausea, kidney stones and even kidney failure.’

He says that vitamin supplements are called “supplements” for a reason.

‘Instead of Drip and Chill, consult a nutritionist or dietitian to run a screening process to see whether there are vitamin or mineral deficiencies that you can try attaining through food, then choose to supplement specifically as a last resort.’

So no, don’t bother dropping well over a £100 on something you’re only going to piss out.

Doctors called the vitamin that kills cancer cells in the intestine


Медики назвали витамины, убивающие раковые клетки в кишечникеThe study is published in the journal Cell Biology International

Higher doses of vitamins C and B3 is able to kill cells of tumors of the intestines, as the study showed.

For the first time in the history of science a group of researchers found that higher doses of vitamin C and Niacin, or vitamin B3, destroy cancer stem cells. Published in the journal Cell Biology International study showed that when exposed to low and high doses of vitamin C and Niacin on stem cells tumors of the intestine produces the opposite effect.
Thus, it was found that when taking 5-25 micromole of vitamins C and B3, which is a low dosage, there is a process of active reproduction of stem cells tumors of the intestine. At high dosages (100 to 1 000 micromoles) these stem cells are destroyed.

However, oranges, lemons and other such foods will not provide the human body such high doses of vitamins that are achievable only with intravenous injection with the help of dropper, as the authors of the study.

Bowel tumours are the third most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. It is proved that colon cancer largely can be prevented by taking foods high in dietary fibre content, as well as a certain lifestyle. In the next step scientists would like to establish therapeutic doses of vitamins C and B3, which would protect people from cancer. This will be carried out by experiments on laboratory tissues and animals.

Earlier it was reported that a possible cause of cancer with long-term cigarette Smoking is that components of tobacco smoke are changing the job of a protein “packaging” of DNA that makes genes vulnerable to mutation accumulation. We also wrote that canadian scientists in multiple studies came to the conclusion that the mammary glands are bacteria that can cure cancer.
