" I'm not bashing Ackman, but he is dead wrong on this one ". With 5 board seats one would think he knows what is going on. Don't be short in front of earnings folks.
Carl just showed once again that Ackman is a LIAR, shorts better get a game plan together, Carl is out for as many shares as he can get. Let the fun continue.
Icahn is an insider with 5 board seats, he is currently BUYING shares not selling. He is required to file within 2 days if he sells, you shorts are screwed, cover and move on.
Well there's an angry short. Stupid you following Ackman down the rabbit hole. When will you clowns ever learn Hackman is nothing more than an arrogant LIAR, and you lemmings hang on his every word. YOU will get wiped out just like all the rest of the shorts.
They show this as NEWS.......that is a joke. This so called report is by Quoth the Raven, a Penny Stock PUMPER who is short the stock and has been since this started. Reporting that as news is a JOKE and Benzinga should be ashamed.
Icahn is adding to his position. Remember what was said when the FTC finally ruled, " this opens the doors to new opportunities ". The board voted to allow Icahn to now own up to 35%, shorts poo poo'ed that as a gimmick. Big time deal is in the works.
Shorts are in denial and have been in denial for over 3 years.
Look at the track record of both parties, Icahn has remained fairly quiet, maybe too quiet, he has been very careful about what he says and even refuses to discuss HLF when interviewed because of his board seats. Ackman on the other hand has lied and lied and lied throughout. Where is the China shutdown he promised? Remember when he was on CNBC in HLF's quiet period before earnings and proclaimed that HLF's upcoming earnings release was going to be a tanking. Earnings would crater he said. HLF actually beat earnings and raised guidance. This was a Q1 earnings release.
So if someone is blatantly lying, which I agree someone is, who would you suspect that might be?
Still Long and trading daily.
Latest news......LMMFAO at you clowns......news is by a SHORT SELLER who is losing his backside. Do you shorts always get your news in the Sunday comics.
How did the Friday morning news work out for you pal. Shorts seem to make up their own set of facts, I guess they have to after the beating they have been taking.
I'm not so sure Marvin, I think this cat has lost his marbles. Every time he goes on TV he makes a bigger fool out of himself. He was so blatantly wrong on Friday that his entire profession had to be rolling their eyes.
Blatant lies and false information to the market causing the tanking of a stock. Jeffries spokesperson confirms Icahn NEVER gave Jeffries an order to sell shares.
Icahn releases statement that he never asked Jeffries to sell shares, also released that he added 2.4 million shares when Ackman told the markets Icahn was selling which sent shares falling 5% at one point.
WHERE is the SEC in all this. A clear case of stock manipulation.
Someone is in panic mode while waiting for Mondays GAP upside opening. Ackman was proven a LIAR as Icahn adds to his position.

EXCLUSIVE: Jefferies spokesperson confirms to me that @Carl_C_Icahn never gave the firm an order to sell his $HLF shares
What I would like to know is why CNBC didn't do their own DD and question Jeffries before they helped tank the stock?
You are clueless, Ackman is a LIAR and desperate. Icahn's response to Ackmans lies.
Over the years many investment bankers, including Jefferies, that specialize in block trades frequently make bids for our large positions. But completely contrary to what Bill Ackman stated on television today, I have never given Jefferies an order to sell any of our Herbalife shares. Last month we publicly disclosed that Herbalife granted us permission to go up to 35%. At the time of the disclosure, Ackman declared that I have no interest in increasing my position in Herbalife. This was obviously another misstatement of the facts by Ackman since today I bought another 2.3 million shares. I continue to believe in Herbalife: it's a great model that creates a great number of jobs for people. Ackman may be a smart guy but he has clearly succumbed to the same dangerous (and sometimes fatal) malady that afflicts many investors – he's developed a very bad case of "Herbalife obsession". Obsessions concerning the value of stocks are the undoing of many investors because they often blind you to the facts, and it becomes impossible to see the forest for the trees. Watching Ackman on television today is a perfect example of this "obsession". A month ago he declared that I'd never buy more Herbalife stock, which obviously turned out to be completely wrong. Today, he said I'm done with my Herbalife investment and that I'm a seller. Obviously wrong, again. It amazes me that a guy who hasn't any knowledge of my internal investment thinking believes he is in a position to go on television to tell the world what I AM thinking! Amazing! He has no right to do so, and even worse, I'm sure his unsubstantiated, obsessive comments, especially about Herbalife, have cost investors a great deal of money over the last few years.
You are just another one of the fly by night shorts who shoots off and then gets buried and disappears. The ditch is littered by you drive by shorts. We welcome you.
" Icahn refuted Ackman's allegations. He said that while many investment bankers "frequently make bids for our large positions ... I have never given Jefferies an order to sell any of our Herbalife shares."
Jefferies told CNBC it never received a sell order from Icahn or anyone at his firm.
Ackman claimed Jeffries was out trying to find a buyer for Icahns shares, meanwhile the SP was tanking as Ackman was giving the false information. If this is not an SEC issue, I don't know what is.
