Hello Herbalife: Bill Ackman's Pershing Square rises 5.8% in December - largely on the back of his very public outing of the stock - turning a lackluster 2012 into something better. Pershing is raising money for a publicly traded fund and this should improve the prospectus. HLF has bounced nearly 50% in the past handful of sessions.

    I thought Ackerman said any profits on Herbalife were being donated to charity

    He did say that. Those profits still boost the performance of his fund.

    Pershing's profits from shorting HLF are not going to charity. Ackman's share of the profits are.
