Shares of Herbalife (HLF -5%) go parabolic after the FTC announces a press conference today to discuss an alleged pyramid scheme. The conference will be held out of the Kentucky Attorney General's office in Lexington, Kentucky, and is scheduled for 1:00PM EST. It's not yet clear whether the conference has to do with HLF however, and the speculation is hitting the stock hard.

    Hopefully HLF will use this opportunity to buy back shares. That $1 billion buyback will be huge for the bulls.

    Of course HBL is a pyramid scheme but then so is America and Capitalism for that matter. Maybe Pyramid schemes are really what we want. Maybe everybody knows it's a pyramid scheme but they still want to spin a wheel and play.
