  • HLF Clarification And A Simple Solution Way Out Of This Mess For Bill Ackman 0 comments
    Aug 29, 2014 2:36 PM

    There is a simple solution and a way out for Bill Ackman to end his night mare and exit his own mess;

    according to public records the average price for his short selling p/s

    was at $ 48, lets say he backs out still on time to get a buy back average p/s of $ 52

    so his loss on basic cost deducted by selling price should stand around 80M loss

    recorded at NASDAK public records:

    Herbalife LTD. Dividend Date & History

    is the following chart

    11/7/2013Cash0.310/25/201311/12/2013

    11/26/2013

    8/9/2013Cash0.37/29/20138/13/2013

    8/27/2013

    5/10/2013Cash0.34/29/20135/14/20135/28/2013
    3/1/2013Cash0.32/19/20133/5/20133/19/2013
    11/9/2012Cash0.310/29/201211/14/201211/28/2012

    since he entered his short selling December 2012, he was charged 5 times for the dividend paid, so lets figure 20M * .30 * 5 adding another 30M to it's losing deal,

    since we aren't sure if funds used for this losing deal was PSCM's Hedge fund's cash or the funds were loaned,

    lets say it was loaned in full and considering an average % APR multiplied by 1Y8M since Dec 2012 we may add another 75M loss at most to this losing deal,

    his use of the media for marketing + additional expenses, we don't think it will make the difference.

    so 80M + 30M + 75M = 185M loss

    his profit on Burger King (symbol BKW) was 200M +

    A professional in his place would definitely back out now and order lunch out with Carl Ichan & George Soros then ready to offer PSCM to the public.

    the more the wait, greater is the loss, since the HLF shares are going higher and higher.

    All HLF's share holders are holding shares tight with short sellers backing out more & more.

    by the way another message to Bill Ackman, BKW is bringing him reaches for the fact he realized the right way on investing:

    reasaerch the right place whre to place the money not by short selling $ 1B
