    Advice for longs and shorts

    A dose of reality for both

    I have read all the pages of the 300 plus document . Everyone should read it to get their own perpective.

    Bill Ackman is wrapping around himself in patriotism and he is most probably hedged in his bet . And also he is being very generous with charity as a hedge too . Just in case to make it look his bet is not for his profit .

    Having said that , he seems to have proved like provind Euclid's Geometric theory arguments that by the definition of FTC it is clearly as pyramid scheme where more than 50% revenues comes from selling distributor ship . By that definition I am not sure how FTC cannot investigate the company .

    Bill Ackman is a very smart man . It would be futile to bet against him . He is not claiming the products are horrible . He is saying that by the definition of the FTCs own standard it is a pyramid scheme .

    • Dear idiot,

      They have tried this twice before, and have been cleared tiwce before, but I suppose studying history was just too much for you.

      • It's funny that you called other people ignorant of history when in fact you are guilty of it yourself. Look at history, what is the usual behavior of a muddy situation like this? Stock usually continues to tank and then it takes at least several months for the dust to settle. If you feel like it, then you can buy. HLF can well be trading in teens or even single digit by the time the dust settles.
