i am doing a survey. and dont lie. ill know. im serious, post your preference. the results will be posted on my web site.
I vote for Ican and should teach a lesson to Ackman. If Ackman win, that means HLF have to sgut down and American people will lose job and government will lose tax. Just cannot figure out what is wrong with HLF.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Im sticking with the research. Any time there is the words fraud, accounting issues, and investigation mentioned the company will almost allways take a huge hit. Plus you add ponzi scheme in there! So it will have to be Ackman for me.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Icahn is already in the money on his calls and the stock is rising. He can and, as far as anyone knows, may already have liquidated all or part of those calls at a profit. He is currently winning. Loeb has also been selling part of his position, according to various news outlets. That brings us to Ackman. He is only losing on paper at this point. If Icahn and Loeb sell out of their positions, that will leave mostly passive investors to support the stock. It would not surprise me in the least if Icahn and Loeb exit their positions entirely by end of calendar 2Q or, more likely, largely exit them but leave a token amount long, and if the stock declines significantly by calendar year end leaving Ackman with a substantial gain as well. None of them will lose money in the end.
Icahn built most of his Herbalife position with options on 11.5 million shares, D.A. Davidson & Co. analyst Tim Ramey notes this afternoon. Federal Hart-Scott-Rodino rules require a waiting period before Icahn can turn those options into stock. The period should end “on or about March 6
None of them will lose. Icahn will follow up it up and sell. Ackman has the resources to ride it up as well. By the time it falls through the floor, Icahn will have already taken his profits and Ackman will recover his position and then some. Neither of these people will lose.
nope wrong. nope right. the longer the better. these guys are writing options like mad. i am hoping there is a winner. nothing would make me happier in this circumstance that HLf is closed down and icahn has a heaet attack and dies inb the arms of his mistress . he is what is wrong with capitalism
