Ackman is the same idiot who picked Ron Johnson to run Pennys, correct?
His judgement in Pennys turnaround was breathtakingly stupid, sticking with and promoting Johnson which cost many people their jobs and investors Billions. Now this same Ackman has a Billion dollar short bet (with other people's money, of course) on Herbalife. Why would anyone with a brain listen to this proven idiot and be short HLF? Its one of the great wonders of the world how otherwise intelligent humans put undeserving and even certifiable fools (in Ackman's case) on pedestals and then follow them blindly. Watch out if he invites you over to serve kool aid.
