if i had the cash attm, i would short this stock right now. because any company he comes into to become a target, he basically decimates their labor force, extracts all the free cash flow, and then leaves a shell of a company behind to wither on the vine with tons of debt, claiming he made it more efficient. all he does is extract the nutrients like an inedible parasite. people like him are partly to blame for the mess we're in.
