Does Einhorns point really matter? How much could small distributors stock up before they have to stop buying products? They either have to move the product get paid and pay for their purchases to HLF. Or the alternative take the product and HLF's receivables go up faster than it's sales did. In this case sales were up 20%, and receivable about 18-19%. If receivables soared beyond I'd be very concerned, but that's not the case!
