    Let’s look at Wizzy’s imaginary world.
    Let’s imagine a scenario similar to Wizzy.
    If an investor named…..
    Shizzy decided to invest $70,000 ($7.00ea.) to buy 10k shares of LFVN.
    Then Shizzy decides to go through his brokerage house and offer all 10k as calls on the options market for $7.50 at a premium of 82cents per share.
    (Dreamer)
    So if LFVN stays sideways or goes down the super sucker just lets the contract expire and Shizzy keeps $8,200 if all 10k shares were in the contract.
    I am not sure anyone is that into LFVN but again this is a made up scenario.
    However in the very unlikely case that LFVN shoots to $12.50
    Than The call buyer will cover his calls at $7.50 or $75k
    Shizzy will receive $5k profit plus the $8200 for a gross profit of 13,200.
    But he would have lost $50,000 by leaving it “on the table”
    $5x10000 shares
    Let’s not forget option trading requires brokerage firms and very in depth contracts plus trade expenses and taxes on profits

    Here we go WIZZLES,
    As of 10:55 am EST
    LFVN is down $0.27 at just over 15k volume
    So I have noticed that downward movement at low volumes in the morning means Up in the afternoon
    So I am going on record as speculating this will close above $7.25 at around 75k volume

    Let’s see how I do

    D, how do you feel that there has been no insider selling for exactly a year at a price of $13.58?

    Wizzles the Poor distributor has caught himself in a lie!!
    This is typical of LFVN suckers.
    Wizzles has claimed to be making money on buying “calls and Puts”
    Which clearly indicates he knows nothing about the stock market, and nothing about Option trading.
    Wizzy has posted for about 2 months making attempts to delude others as go the dream that LFVN has “SMASHED” earnings and “incredibly successful”
    However in the real world, this company has lost distributors by the 10s of THOUSANDS
    And it’s share price has been absolutely stable at the mid $7s
    With barely 60k/day in recent volume.
    A stable stock price would not be beneficial for an option trader to make a profit.
    Simply explained, a Call order (buy) would benefit from an increase in price….
    In two ways, your call contract would increase in value and also you could buy the asset at your contract price.
    A Put (sell) would need the asset to decrease in price.
    Therefore a sideways trend as LFVN has been holding is not something that would benefit either position.
    Poor little Wizzy just another sucker that came way to late to the party……
    Bullish

    I love this company. They buyback on average 10% of the volume every trading day. That's plenty to keep this bad boy above $7/dharr, and they have more than enough in their fcf to accomplish this. These guys really know what they are doing, and have been incredibly successful weathering the COVID storm.

    Herbalife selling off on recent earnings-big decline in participants and #$%$ guidance. LFVN and other mlm/pyramid scams will will decline today in concert.

    I admit I was wrong!!!
    I called for a close at $7.25 or above
    Although it did come up in the afternoon from the morning lows of $7.07
    It didn’t bounce as much as I had guessed.
    And still only 55k volume well that was also disappointing.
    I guess the bears are not done yet.

    Must have been a good stock buyback day. Thanks LFVN management

    Following is a summary of Smith v LifeVantage, filed in February this year. It provides a very succinct and accurate description of the Con and how it works. This suit is very similar to Rodgers v Herbalife filed in September of 2017.

    The Complaint alleges that LifeVantage and its Chief Executive Officer Darren Jensen, Chief Sales Officer Justin Rose, and Chief Marketing Officer Ryan Goodwin (the “Defendants”) are operating an illegal pyramid scheme in violation of the federal Racketeer Influenced & Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, federal securities laws, and the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act.

    According to the lawsuit, LifeVantage sells distributorships which Defendants market as the business opportunity using sales pitches promising wealth and business independence. Defendants’ compensation program encourages distributors to recruit others into the system with the same promises of wealth and business independence. Distributors pay money to participate in the business opportunity, which funds LifeVantage’s payments and bonuses to other distributors. Despite LifeVantage’s claims of retail sales, little money comes in to the system from actual retail users of LifeVantage products disconnected from the business opportunity or recruitment. Instead, it is believed that the majority of the company’s retail sales are monthly sales made to distributors who purchase LifeVantage’s products mainly in order to participate in the compensation program and remain eligible to receive bonuses.

    Jensen, CEO of LFVN sold 27% of his stock holdings yesterday at $4.84. Gee, I wonder what that means?

    Any idea how serious their Asian endeavors will be. On the conference call they mentioned they had tried it once before. Will it work this time?

    The company has twice the revenue than its entire market cap and has 15x cash flow to debt. The PE is under 8. I would not short this stock. Looks like a good one to sell puts on.

    Jensen was hired in 2015 with performance bonuses set at
    $300m, $400m, and $500m
    For Net Revenue
    They are only claiming $245m for year #5.
    And after a $56m first quarter it looks like guidance should be reduced to $225m
    Bearish

    Any thoughts on earnings? Reported Q1 earnings of .06/share. Same as last year when the stock was in the $4's. And well down from Q4 earnings of .20/share. Not sure why people continue to buy this over $10, but they do.

    My wife signed up as a distributor. Assuming the product does anything, one of my concerns is that the Protandim patent expires in less than 5 years, and it represents 65% of the company's sales. I think when people figure that out, distributors will quit and they won't be able to get new ones anymore. Thoughts?

    Weak quarter. Flat revenues. Flat earnings of .13/share. Cut revenue guidance. Have no clue why the recent buying on this one. Stock should be lucky to trade over $10

    Riddle me this:
    LifeVantage describes itself :

    We are a company focused on biohacking the aging code through nutrigenomics, the study of how nutrition and naturally occurring compounds affect human genes to support good health. We provide quality, scientifically-validated products... We engage in the identification, research, development and distribution of advanced nutraceutical dietary supplements and skin and hair care products

    Year after year LifeVantage reports zero Research and Development expenses. Yep, thats 0,zip, goose egg,nada.

    I would love to see this riddle explained at the next super-conference-convention-rally,cluster...

    Occasionally, I like to check E-Bay and Amazon to see what is offered in the way of LifeVantage products on their websites. Incidentally, LifeVantage Distributors/Customers are prohibited from selling on these and other retail sites and agree to that when they sign up. Despite that, there are about 700 separate offerings for LifeVantage products on EBay and Amazon alone. Nearly all are discounted by heavily, and there are lots of expired products. Even there, it seem there are few sales, and the "make an offer" is rare. How are all these products winding up on sites LifeVantage has banned the use of? If LifeVantage has a viable return policy how can this happen?
    I hope anyone thinking of joining LifeVantage or any other MLM scam will take a minute to ponder these Questions...
