I know. Luxury quality items should not be mentioned with anything herbalife offers. Ferrari is probably what the ceo drives and something the cult members will not even see on the street. Have a milkshake and smile, will you?
I just launched my own shake. It will be $2000 per can. Compared to that, all shakes are cheap. But its not so, you gotta compare their shakes to cheap shakes out there. The prices go really low when you start looking for prices, placing herbalife drinks in a very very expensive category. A million dollar bugatti does not make 500 thousand dollar ferrari cheap. Both are expensive cars. I am sure you dont drive any of them.
That is the reason why this fad diet failed long time ago. If there ever was an unbiased consumer behavior study done on slim shake consumption, they would probably discover that the majority put on a few pounds before quiting. My personal observation of subjects consuming slim shakes was that they were consuming them on top of regular meals, probably because of lack of education and understanding about how the product supposed to work. Another obvious reason is because the shakes leave you hungry for the reason mentioned in the top post, hungrier than if you consumed traditional food with same calories.
When it comes to mlm's, it is not the product that sells. Its the mlm engine that transfers the money to the top of the pyramid. Please read my other posts on this topic. Shorts are you best friend when looking for a stock to buy. They will expose weaknesses and concerns to you that others will try to mask, downplay, or hide from you.
The latest discovery behind hunger control is a hormone called leptin. Many doctorate papers have been published since it's discovery. Fructose, unlike glucose, does not register as food in the body. In fact, there is not even an insulin response to glucose. You will gulp down that shake and still feel hungry, and the energy will store as fat. Therefore, you will have to rely on your will not to ingest more calories till the next shake. If it comes to self control in the end, eat normal food and control yourself and you will not even feel as hungry. Many many other reasons why fructose based diets are bad for you. The topic may seem simple enough to attack. Some will say, honey and fruits are loaded with fructose. With honey, there is cost restriction and therefore its not consumed as much as corn derived fructose syrup. With fruits, fructose is bound to fiber. Big difference when you consume fruits and when you consume fruit juice. You can research these topics at will but it boils down to reducing fructose intake. That means, eliminate sweet drinks like soda, ice tea, milkshakes. Drink water, drink tea, drink coffee, drink vodka-- and those will not make you fat. Of course there may be other problems with coffee and vodka, but you get my drift.
$686 mil is variable. The company will be forced to acquire the shares for $86 per share. At current market price of $59.88, about 30% of that $686 million will go to the bank. Nobody really could know what price the stock may be tmr, could be higher, could be lower. If you believe a pyramid scheme can go up forever, then you need not worry. However, If it drops more on the expiration date, the deal will turn out to be extremely expensive. The company can opt out of dividends, but its not so easy to opt out from bank obligations. I already pointed out, their equity is technically negative right now.
judging from the thumbs down, I notice my posts are not liked and that I am a minority here. One who reads this because he thinks the p/e for this stock is alright should think twice and hesitate to buy this stock.
He told you his interest no? He is short, like others, and its in our interest to share why this company is a scam and should be avoided, as the ftc advises so about any mlm.
Ok, say its true....However, the short position has not changed much since that day. Why do you allude that 15,988.042 shares that day were predominately shorts? There was not even net change of million shares in short position from that day till today. If I had to guess, those would be old longs who liquidated. If they were big players, you would see their filings soon.
can you say the same thing when the stock is down lets say $10? I will not be surprised when it hits zero though.
Why is it up only $1 when it should be $92? Why has it been under constant attack and criticism when its a legit company. Why has there not been an lbo as rumored? Why is it down so much from all time highs when you said the same thing every time it went up $1.
This is for the new comers who missed the debt deal. Unless you do form filing digging and interpreting, you will not know about this deal. Hope this message board helps. There are paid shills ready to discredit, downplay, and mask any risks on this board. Buyer beware.
