    • Interestingly -- there was an article on CXW this week in Barrons....

      Ackman has recently presented a short opportunity with Realty Income and back in May presented a opportunity in General Growth Properties. Both the reality income and GGP presentations surfaced on the net some time later, and they appeard in blurbs in Barrons.

      I think we are learning a little about Mr Ackmans MO.
