NEW YORK, Oct 6 (Reuters) - William Ackman, head of hedge fund firm Pershing Square Capital Management, said on Tuesday that market volatility was being driven by short-term money without regard to long-term economic fundamentals and that Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc was the most undervalued stock among his top holdings.

"There is a huge amount of money that moves without regard to long-term economic fundamentals," said Ackman at a Bloomberg investor conference in New York. Ackman added that the volatility was creating opportunities for long-term fundamental investors looking to pick up undervalued stocks. (Reporting by Edward Krudy; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
