    Ackman - Long - JCP, Short - HLF

    Go figure if this move pans out. The expiration of a huge number of Puts makes me think this is a desparation move.

    • That he timed this fiasco with the expiration of an "extraordinary number of puts" indicates an intent to harm the Company. Had the announcement come after expiration then it would be difficult to argue otherwise. Be that as it is, the Company still needs to act in meaningful way to preserve credibility. If they do not announce the beginning of an ASR (accelerated share repurchase), provided Q4 and 2013 guidance and bump up the dividend then all the litigation in the wold will not turn this around. Investors are sick of this regardless of who's right or wrong. Show me the money. Buy back shares and tell me everything is solid with the business. That's what investor's need. Words alone will not fix this.
