    Out of $HLF short for a gain of 24% in 2 trading days. $33.70 ---> $25.60. That thing could go to zero, but I'll be content with that gain.

    • Ocean Man: I think it's laughable that HLF said "we'll respond to Mr Ackman's claims on January 7th". Let your shareholders get killed for 2 weeks.

    • Ocean Man: Shorting is easy. Try a small one and see what it's like. It's simply sell first and buy 2nd.

    • Ocean Man: The risk is different, as longs can only lose 100%, shorts can lose more. And there are sometimes daily charges for certain shorts.

    • Ocean Man: There are also some stocks where your broker won't have any shares to short.
