    This is great! Herbalife products are the best nutrition products on the market. The marketing plan and direct selling model gives people the tool to have more in life, make some extra money or a career level income. This is very exciting to hear!

    And that's why I bought this stock.


    Great products and lots of enthusiasm.


    Now if we could just scare the shorts away.

    why do you want to scare them?
    don't you want to buy cheap?
    but, what is cheap, that is the question... :)

    I smell a rat. Why is the stock continuing to plunge? If sales are up why has the value of the stock continued to drop after the "Einhorn incident"? Is it the case that the more wary investors see a fatal flaw in the Herbalife business model which presents it as a long term risk? How much customer loyalty is there embedded in the product? How much of its sales depend on distributors buying into the "get rich off the MLM" idea? How long can a company survive when its stock values continue to drop? When will Herbalife have to cut back on its dividends to pay the loans on the purchases of its own stock bought in an attempt to keep the prices from dropping?

    Whatever the business model, 21% of float short is obscene for a company making 2 figers profit margins for years with no factual bad news. Take your ticket for the short squeeze as soon as the dust settles.

    With everything that is going on with Herbalife now is the time to buy. I believe that it will double in the next few months.

    Been with Herbalife for 30 years! This is the finest company on the planet with the most scientific health and nutrition products available.


    Don't worry-Herbalife will still be active and growing for years to come. Great time to buy stock and give the products a try, you will be impressed.
