September 10, 2017-A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE. . Here is another reason for Pershing Sq investors to rethink staying with Pershing Sq, for those who have not already redeemed shares. I wrote sometime ago a article exposing the scam that Billy-boy Ackman and his braindead shills are running. Once again, make careful note of the real innformation that I provide. I have been predicting this for years and am 100% spot on. Ackman and his shills are just hyping and degrading Herbalife and are 100% WRONG!!
Long before the Herbalife-Ackman saga began, I was warning fellow investors to be wary of Ackman. He is a classic scam artist. Looks good. Smiles. Has a 8 figure net worth, Harvard degree and talks with authority. But basically disseminates bullsh’t. Anyone who has examined Ackman’s investing background know that it is nothing to brag about.
If Ackman were a athletic coach with a record like that, he would bave been fired a very long ago,
We all know what a utter failure VRX turned out to be and we all know how much Ackman hyped that company and stock. And we all know how severely I was attacked for warning investors not to heed Ackman’s advice and not to buy into VRX.
But VRX was not Ackman’s only and first bad investment.
Not that long ago, Billy Ackman was also very bullish on Borders. We all remember that right? Ackman put a load of cash into that and lost it all. Sound familiar? Let me ask you, how many Borders stores do you see around now? None. Zero. Zilch. This seems to be a pattern with Ackman. Everything he touches turns to dog poop.
Borders files for bankruptcy
I have mentioned in the past how Ackman attempted massive manipulation to make a huge profit (yeah, I know he said he was going to donate it to charity. That has about as much substance as the Clinton’s Foundation) Here is a older video by Jimmy Cramer explaining how manipulation and fomenting in the stock market takes place. Cramer was one of the very best at this. Ackman is one of the very worst. And Cramer never tried to put a innocent company out of business. Ackman did and failed.
And here is some more information on Ackman and his evil ways.
2017 will be Ackman and Pershing Squares worst year ever. Remember, I predicted this for the last 2 years in a row and I was spot on. In 2017, we may very well see Pershing Sq. become Gotham Partners II. Same bonehead is running Pershing Sq. That would be ACKMAN! Pershing Sq has been down double digits in both 2015 and 2016. In February, Ackman and his shills were all elated that Ackman was showing a 1%-2% return in 2017, then. And tALking about gains. GAINS??? Take into account that Pershing Sq. investors are down 40% for the prior 2 years. Add in the blipp 1%-2% gain and they are still down -38% over three years. Even if Perhsing Sq shows a 1%-2% gain in 2017 and that continues, it will take years for Pershing Sq just to break even, let alone show a profit.
Billy Ackman has made a ton of mistakes. Check them out here………
He has cost his investors millions.
This is from August 31, 2016- Today, Herbalife revealed a brand new, fresh video exposing The Real Bill Ackman, his many misdeeds, horrible investment decisions and despictable behavior over the years. This is great news for all Herbalife fans, HLF longs and perhaps will open some eyes to people who glorify Ackman just because he has a 8 figure net worth and a Harvard Degree. So some presume that he is infallible. He clearly is not.
The second video is even more hard hitting than the first one. I am sure the Ackman cultists, the Ackmanaholics will not be too happy. Ackman has not been called “A Modern Day PT Barnum” and the “The Worst of Wall Street” for nothing. He is not an investor, he is a reckless gambler who takes inordinate risks and has lost millions for his investors. Those of us who knew Ackman long before the Herbalife saga started already knew this.
Under Ackman’s “leadership” and “management” skills, Gotham Partners imploded for the same reasons that Pershing Sq is imploding right now. Ackman takes inordinate risks and then doubles even triples down on bad investments when wiser minds would move out and move on. Ackman belongs in a casino, not the stock market.
I also recommend discretion when watching CNBC in relation to Ackman. CNBC is to Ackman what CNN is to the Clinton’s. FAKE NEWS.
And by the way, Ackman is a democrat who has donated millions to their political campaigns. Sen. Markey is close personal friends with Ackman. Of course this is the same Sen. Markey who launched the incredulous FTC investigation on Herbalife 2 years ago which backfired on Ackman. And look who Sen. Markey is good friends with…
A fmr President who was impeached and left the White House in disgrace has close ties with Markey. Connect the dots.
The new videos presented on Herbalife’s http://www.therealbillackman.com are quite revealing indeed and shows not only how wrong and how frequently wrong Bill Ackman is but also how underhanded he is in his dealings.
And it is not just Herbalife’s opinion. The videos show journalists and writers who know Ackman very well and have attempted to expose Ackman in the past. Their information, unlike what Ackman spills out about Herbalife is accurate, well researched and on point.
Many of us have been asking, practically begging Herbalife to be more proactive on going after Ackman. It appears that now that the FTC fiasco is now over, that Herbalife is doing just that.
A lot of misinformation has been and still being peddled by the Ackmanaholics. In the past, Herbalife was on a gag rule and had no way to react. Now they do and it looks like all holy hell is going to break loose.
As one of the most bullish longs on HLF, I too was dismayed to see Herbalife stand idly by while Ackman and his team of morons hurled false accusation after false accusation after another about Herbalife. Not reacting made Herbalife look weak and foolish and even perhaps guilty of what was being said about them. Even the Ackmanaholics brought this up time after time after time suggesting that if in fact Herbalife was truly innocent, why don’t they fight back or sue. Of course they knew about the gag order and was using this as ammunition to further attack Herbalife and try to add some substance to their lies. And it may have worked for awhile, but now that is over. The game has changed and I am sure we will hear them barking and complaining because Herbalife had the audacity to defend itself and tell the truth about the fraud Billy Ackman.
As I understand it, the videos that came out on Monday and today are just the first in a slew that will be released along with more information in print and other media telling the truth about Ackman. If you ask me, this is long overdue and welcomed by the intelligent investment universe.
Herbalife is merely clearing it’s reputation by letting the whole world who may not be tuned in to what Ackman is really all about know about his many failures, misdoings and why he is not a “White Knight” trying to protect the innocent but rather a “Evil One” trying to attack a company which has basically done no wrong.
Herbalife has been around for 37 years and no doubt will be around for another 37 years. Where will Ackman be in 37 years, bankrupt, in jail or deceased???
Herbalife has a proven business model that has been working for over 3 1/2 decades. Sales peaked at $7.8 billion.
FTC RULING REVISITED
On July 15, 2016, the FTC ruled that Herbalife IS NOT A PYRAMID SCHEME. Yet Ackman and his goons continue to suggest otherwise. Who do we believe, the FTC or Ackman and his goons? I think the proper answer is obvious. I’ll go with the FTC. Ackman and his goons have not been right even once. There is no reason to believe that their losing record will improve or change anytime in the near or foreseeable future.
Icahn exposed Ackman as a liar
By now everyone knows that Carl Icahn called out Billyboy Ackman on his lies that Icahn was selling shares of HLF. Ackman did this last Tuesday and again on Friday morning and did create a selloff on both occasions. I believe this falls under the category of stock manipulation and no doubt the SEC will be looking into this. Might we see Billyboy hauled off to prison soon? That would be justice for sure.
Carl Icahn’s purchases of an additional 2.3 million shares of HLF stock has further tightened the “short squeeze” on Billy Ackman
Wall street has to wonder just how long Billy Ackman can hang on to his failing HLF short play. How much longer can he keep it on life support? We all know that Ackman has been liquidating a lot of investments of late. We all know that Ackman’s Pershing Fund has performed horribly for the past two years trailing not only the S&P 500 but also hedge funds as a whole. Ackman may have had some hits in the past, lately, it has been all misses. Call it luck or whatever, the Ackman magic is gone. No more hits. Now bare singles with huge misses. The party is over for Ackman. Any real investor can see that.
Ackman’s grip on his very reckless HLF short play is slipping away very quickly. Only a matter of time before he concedes.
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Global nutrition company Herbalife (HLF) today announced the second in its latest series of videos that showcase observations by the media and other thought leaders about the motives, failed investment strategies and questionable tactics of Bill Ackman. Observers have questioned his scruples and ethics, arguing that he has put his personal agenda ahead of the interests of his investors.
The second video in the series, “Costly Missteps” posted today onTheRealBillAckman.com, includes observations of journalists and others about how Ackman’s “hubris and ego” have cost his investors millions of dollars. Others have commented that to “double down, even triple down on his original poor investment, is ridiculous.” Finally, some have said that Ackman’s investment strategy “is nothing more than gambling.”
“In addition to the investment loss for his investors, Bill Ackman has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on carrying costs, lobbying and public relations. This is real money for his investors who, according to recent media articles, are questioning his investment strategies,” said Alan Hoffman, executive vice president, global corporate affairs, Herbalife.
For four and one half years, Bill Ackman has launched a well-funded, aggressive market manipulation campaign, filled with false statements, to support his reckless $1 billion bet against Herbalife. In addition to the investment loss for his investors, Bill Ackman said his carrying costs were approximately $100 million annually, which when combined with the more than $75 million he has spent on lobbying and public relations, adds up to real money.
Bill Ackman celbrated his birthday on May 11. This means he is one year closer to going to hell for all of his lies and misdeeds. I am sure that satan has a very special place for Ackman.
I hope Ackman maintains his incredibly reckless HLF short position for as long as possible. The longer he stays short, the more money he is going to lose, his credibility which is barely above zero now will drop even more and more and more Pershing Sq investors will redeem their shares with even fewer buying into that perishing fund.
