    • 1) 4 dollars in cash - 14$ book value. 2) ACHMAN knows REITS as he also has GGP (General Growth PROP) making up 14% of his portfolio now JC Penney at 8%---- al lot of land 3) Ackman said he has "complete confidence" in Ron Johnson, Store in a store works in Walmart
      4, Pershing Square had 39,075,771 shares, or a 17.87% stake, in J.C. Penney, according to Bloomberg data citing a 13F regulatory filing.
      5) expects some progress on sales in the second half -JCPenney has officially changed its mind and will be bringing back all the sales it had assumed customers didn’t want.
