I have read all of Ackman's allegations against herbalife including his August 29 letter to PwC, and based on discussions with hlf employee's along with those allegations, Ackman makes quite a compelling case that hlf is indeed a pyramid scheme. The mere fact that hlf will not directly sell it's products to the general public but refer them to a "distributor" is sufficient evidence in well settled law that they are more interested in building a downline than developing & selling useful products. I believe hlf will at the least be forced to cease & desist operation's of their current model. Google "Explode Your HerbalifeCentral Downline In Three Easy Steps"
So McDonald's and Domino's are illegal? Neither corporation sells directly to the public. They sell product to franchisees who in turn sell it to the public. And believe me, unless you are already a millionaire, you cannot get a McDonald's franchise.
Sentiment: Strong Buy

You have no clue what you are talking about. Whether or not you can buy something in a retail establishment or only through a distributor has never been a contention for any product. Using your faulty logic, that would mean that Kirby or Rainbow vacuum cleanser companies are illegal. Many cutlery manufacturers only sell through individual distributors.
Yeah, we've seen you short selling trash posts before.
Of course you're going to agree with your guru, Billy Ackman, just as your fellow groupies like Herb Greenscum, who is making a guest appearance on CNBC as I type.
So PLEASE SHORT MORE SHARES, so you will add to the size and price of the SQUEEZE when it happens !
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You are completely clueless and blind. You are citing causation correlation to make your point. IE there are more cases of Autism in children today, there are more cellphones than ever before, therefore cellphones cause Autism. Simple minded tools. You are like that stupid chick on that comercial that says" Its on the internet so it must be true"
You cant buy Budweiser directly from the brewery either can you?? You MUST purchase it through a distributor. Dont be an ignorant buffoon. Oh too late...just die already
Ackman cant make a compelling case to his own mother.....
Man you are really naive. Are you suggesting that the FTC shut down every single direct selling organization because they don't have retail outlets? That isn't even what Ackman would say (let alone a century of precedent). Wow...ignorance abounds!
