Was on my daily post-trading hike, enjoying your Valeant podcast. As usual this one also very well done! You know, as I was listening it reminded me of an article I read a number of years back about [Bill] Ackman. I couldn’t remember where I read it, or even all the details, but remembered the article discussed this bike ride Ackman took where he was so [!@#$] egotistical I was thinking at the time this guy is gonna blow up some day. He’s the type that just can’t admit he’s ever wrong, and we both know in trading one had to lose at times to win. And then I heard the Podcast. When I came back from the hike I googled Ackman bicycle ride and it came up immediately; was in Vanity Fair.
Keep up the good work!
PS. Something else I wanted to tell you. After enjoying a Tom Basso podcast, [we connected]. Then a few months ago he posted something about the [location] in [location]. I emailed him and mentioned my [location] home is less than a mile from there. He emailed me back and we found out we’re within a mile of each other. Since then we’ve become friends, had dinner with [people] a few weeks ago. Thanks to you for hooking us up.
Very cool on Tom.
Tom coming on my podcast… really set a tone early on and throughout. Next time I am in the States I need to swing through [location].
And great article on Ackman.
