One is Bill Miller. Ackman told him VRX stock would double from 30s to 60s, there was a lot of value in the stock. So Bill Miller bought a few milion shares.
Two is Papa the CEO. Ackman told him that he could get this and that number of stock shares if the price reached 60 dollars a share. If the stock doesn't reach 60, Papa gets nothing. He will be working for nothing.
I got greedy and decided to hold and wait for a gap down this morning. Instead, I got a gap up this morning. I didn't expect the market to reverse so quickly, without any warning signs.
I am perhaps one of those who shorted VRX and lost money.
