    New to Board

    I am new to this board and to HLF. Started buying yesterday and currently plan to keep buying, unless there is some new news. As a retired CEO of a public company, I am at a loss (other than Einhorn's reputation for shorting) as to why HLF is in this situation. The quarter was excellent. The guidance was okay (certainly not a cause for a major pullback). The questions posed by Einhorn seem benign (almost amateurish). The SEC looked at this Company 5 years ago and they found nothing. And, I can tell you, if the SEC has been in your shorts you are very aware of what they require and very attentive to making certain you never do anything to give them cause to come back (unless your name is Aubrey McClendon, of course). So, in my opinion, unless another shoe drops (which is what everyone is worried about), this is a stock that deserves to be back in the mid-$60's and if that starts becoming apparent in the coming weeks, for all these shorts to cover, it will probably drive the stock well past that level. But, I guess if everyone thinks Einhorn may have something to say at a conference in mid-May, there may not be any sense of comfort whatsoever until then.
