    Is Cosco a pyramid scheme?

    This entire HLF debate has got to be the stupidest thing I've witnessed in a long time. As an example, take Cosco, it does not distinguish if it sells to a customer, distributer, retailer, etc. It only accounts for how many cans of soup it sells. HLF is no different. I find it entertaining watching guys like Hurb trying to state that the HLF is so complex that only Aikman has had the ability to do the research, and has written a 300 page paper to confirm that it is a pyramid scheme. Give me a break. Aikman is in real trouble here, investors will be leaving his fund fearing a squeeze, I see it as inevitable. Ichan has time and big money on his side to slowly appreciate the share price-- creating the inevitable squeeze. It all goes back if it matters who a company sells its product to-- the answer is no-- all that matters is that the product is selling and its making a profit on those sales. The FTC would never shut down HLF, otherwise it would need to shut down Am-way, and AVON, and dozens of other smaller MLM companies. I continue to go long HLF-- shares could easily double at current valuation.

    • You are an idiot. Costco is a membership warehouse where the public goes and buys goods unlike recruits who actually go door to door as hlf does. You are a disturbed person who doesn't even that you are going to lose your money in hlf. When the recruiting ends so does the money coming in. PYRAMID SCHEME that is unsustainable. Your money is lost period.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
