  • What's Going On With Herbalife's Bankers? [View article]
    yes some call for NEW REGULATIONS when Herbalife meets the current regulations.

    Any NEW regulations would affect only the FUTURE not current operations.

  • Herbalife's Top Distributors Hold Warehouses Full Of Product In Mexico - Why? [View article]
    The reason the contract IS so detailed is because ONLY the terms of the contract matter as they are SEPARATE and INDEPENDENT entities.

    no matter what you say to the contrary.

    They are completely independent except where they are obligated by the terms of their contracts. That often leads to lawsuits to determine the full range of the terms.

    for example, if a franchise takes on debt, the franchise alone is responsible for that debt and there is no recourse to the firm.

  • Female Health Company Transitioning To New Strategy, But Receiving Legacy Business Valuation [View article]
    The political risk that I refer to that their current sales are dependent on governments and NGO's.

    I commend them for trying to sell in a different marketplace, but lets see how well they can do it.

    The firm has recognized that the model of selling to governments and NGO's means that they are subject to a great amount of political risk.

    Let us see if they can actually sell their products to individuals without the governmental intermediaries. Their vaulted relationships with the governmental agencies may not be worth much in this endeavor.

    Instead they must tap the " 7,000 obstetrician/gynaecolo... (OB/GYN) practices who write most of the prescriptions in the United States." which is a completely different market.

    The distributors own their own INDEPENDENT firms

    The owners of Herbalife are SEPARATE from the distributors.

    This is a good product for a good market

    Yet they still need to get to commercial quantities of the full range of products in their production.

    When they get their production up, they will have a fine little investment. yet that has been the issue for some time.

  • Sell-Side Analysts Weigh In On Herbalife - Return To Growth Is A Unicorn [View article]
    MANY FOLKS sign up just for the discounts on the products
    SOME work part time with little financial expectations
    FEW work FULL TIME and expect LARGE financial returns

    You have to define SUCCESS on their terms NOT YOURS

    but you have been told that many times and you ignore it AGAIN and AGAIN

    and none of those questions bear on the point

    especially when a significant number of members join strictly for the discounts on the products.

    Yes the key is still the PRIMACY of recruiting, not recruiting per se.

    actually not even in the same ball park

    Further, that you do not understand the law, case law, economics, logic or facts is self-evident by such comments.

    and again unless you can show that all members of DSA are uniform or representative of Herbalife, then your data is WORTHLESS.

    The analogy of the weight of members of a football team has been presented before. Offensive tackles weigh more than the average of the team.

    To say a member weighs more than the average means NOTHING if you don't correct for the differences.
