Investing is a business where you can look very silly for a long period of time before you are proven right.Bill Ackman
I think the hedge-fund industry has taken a reputational turn for the worse, this dog-eat-dog stuff. I’m not just talking about Herbalife or J. C. Penney, but in other situations where the media really focuses on who’s long and who’s short. I don’t think it’s a good thing for the industry.Bill Ackman
I love what I do. I don’t do it for the money. I work on behalf of investors that I like and want to do well for. I’m a competitive person.Bill Ackman
