It doesn't mean that there is any basis to his theory either. Herbalife has been around for over 32 years, is doing over $5 Billion is sales and has millions of customers in over 84 countries worldwide. Perhaps Ackman doesn't understand the business model. In which case it only proves that he is naive and ignorant and is attempting to make a quick buck on innuendo and blatant #$%$. And he says Herbalife is running an illegal scheme? To me that is like the pot calling the kettle black.
