    Apart from NUS being an MLM pyramid, shouldn't your growth filters have eliminated this stock?

  • Sell-Side Analysts Weigh In On Herbalife - Return To Growth Is A Unicorn [View article]
    unico1, when saying that people would just move to another MLM or set up a new one, you actually confirm that the company or the product don't matter, its the scam that is propagated. Thank you!

  • Tesla Motors preps for energy storage launch [View news story]
    Strange expectations for sales when the market for these products is expected to grow to $6B in 2020. Do they need to find a home for the surplus batteries from diminishing car sales?

  • 19 Herbalife Members Travel to Washington D.C. to Meet with Their Members of Congress [View article]
    If they are part of the privileged few who make money from Herbalife then they have motive to travel to Washington to protect the scam.

  • Herbalife: An Open Letter To George Soros, Patron Saint Of Short-Sellers [View article]
    Unico1, again your "facts" have no bearing on this case.

    "Still, Ohlhausen noted some of the limitations of relying entirely on self-regulation.

    “Insufficient resources can lead to dependence on member firms’ lobbying and financial influence," she said, adding that she was speaking on her own behalf and not the entire FTC."

    Unico1, you wouldn't recognize a fact if it bit you in the foot. That goes both ways, the facts against Herbalife as well as what you call facts:
    "A LA Court last month ruled that there is no evidence to suggest that Herbalife is doing anything wrong!"
    which is a very non-factual interpretation.

    Logic Man, its mostly a question of liability. As an active investor he is in contact with management and is an insider, with all the restrictions and liabilities. As a passive investor from he can claim he did not know about whatever perspires from now on. Selling his shares will happen when he sees the need.

    Icahn1, ever stopped to think why a squeaky clean food supplement company needed to hire all these political heavy hitters?

    Wreckdiver, don't forget any continuous user of a sextant is blind on one eye.

    Chris, at this point it might be best to run this by your compliance in your firm. If this firm is registered in any way its a no-no. If a Chinese wall policy is required, it means exactly that, you can't go around it, you can't trade for the firm and advise clients at the same time. You are also not allow to privately hold any stock in a company on that you publish research. However what is mostly published here on SA is not qualified as research in many ways for contents reasons, less so for disclaimers.

    Chris, I don't agree with your narrow definition of front running. AuCaster already said it so I don't need to repeat. Also, front running is not necessarily pump and dump, and the long term performance of a recommendation makes no difference. You just can't recommend a stock for a fee that you have previously bought in your own or your company's portfolio. Why do you think there are strict Chinese walls between trading and research?

    "Securities that are meaningfully mispriced are put into our portfolio. This work relies on substantial research budget in terms of our time, energy, and dollars. Once this work is done, I simply dump our carefully assembled ideas into the public via Seeking Alpha..."

    Chris, one thought though, this is dangerously close to "front running"!
