I think Ackman cut a backroom deal with the Federal Government to sell his shares in F & F, in exchange for the FTC probe on Herbalife. Anyone agree? Both of these events happening at the same time is too coincidental.
I don't think so but I think he had engineered the rally so he can take some quick profits, knowing that it would take months again for the debate on the housing reform. It has been almost 9 months since the last big rally. The runup seems to be similar.
