Whale Watching, Einhorn, Ackman

Recent developments have the Fast Money traders closely watching two of Wall Street's biggest whales.

David Einhorn

David Einhorn's Greenlight bought a huge stake in Boston Scientific in the fourth quarter of last year.

The hedge fund now owns almost $300 million in BSX stock, making the medical technology company its largest holding.

I like the space in general but BSX has been troubling, adds Karen Finerman. Instead I'd play medical device makers with Becton Dickinson.

Bill Ackman

Meanwhile, Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management is back in the spot light as a major shareholder of General Growth Property , which rejected Simon Property’s bid in favor of looking at other options that might get stockholders a better price.

Under Simon's offer, General Growth shareholders would receive around $9 per share.
