Bill Ackman's Talk at Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit

Pershing Square's Bill Ackman sat down with Stephanie Ruhle for an interview at Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit yesterday.

It's around a 30-minute talk but here's the broad takeaways from the interview:

- Still owns Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), but hasn't added to the position or sold any shares

- Looked at General Electric (GE) but passed because it wasn't cheap enough; thinks Nelson Peltz will do well with it

- More to come with his Herbalife (HLF) saga

- Notes Burger King (part of Restaurant Brands (QSR)) has cut costs, improved stores/experience and same store sales are doing well

- Thinks Bloomberg should run for President

Embedded below is the video of Ackman's Bloomberg talk:
