NEW YORK, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Kerrisdale Capital Management now holds a short position in the stock and via options of First Majestic Silver Corp., according to a report released Thursday by the hedge fund firm.

Kerrisdale, led by Sahm Adrangi, wrote in the report that the Canadian mining company is in a "speculative frenzy" and that its valuation is "now outrageously detached from reality." (Reporting by Lawrence Delevingne and Chuck Mikolajczak; Editing by Frances Kerry)
