Carl Icahn said at CNBC's Delivering Alpha that he's requested to buy up to 50% of Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) with the FTC. He currently has authorization to buy up to 35%.
Icahn said no way a professional would want to be short the stock with such high short interest and long stock in strong hands.
Further, Icahn said he thinks Herbalife is a candidate to go private and would be better off going private.
