The SEC should not wait for actions by shorts to initiate SEC investigations. It appears the SEC's main goal is to assist the shorting parties - not a fair market place. This is my opinion - I have no position in the stock.
News is out. Short squeeze will commence at open. Investigations take years, HLF makes billions, 80% outside of America. Even without America, this is extremely undervalued. HLF is looking at a slap on the wrist, anyway. Going higher.
Don't think so. This is the ultimate catalyst for shorts, now it's out. Will take at least a year before the FTC says another word about this. Meanwhile, four billion dollar earnings calls, lobbying...Herbalife will whether this just fine. Maybe a slap on the wrist in terms of changing how they report and a few other tweaks. If it goes to the $20's, I'll load the boat. Very small position for me right now. Now the good prices are coming. Bring it on.
