If it wasn’t for Herbalife my husband would had still be taking his meds and over weight. I won’t had lost over 20lbs and lost over 20 – 30 inches around my body. This company has been the best company in the world for both personal and business goals. People like Ackman got screwed years ago because he made a bad deal. All this Pyramid Scheme is an excuse to blame others for his own mistakes. Has Herbalife been perfect? No, but doesn’t every company make mistakes and learn to grow? That is how all companies do, they go up an down all the time in the stock market. Now suppose he has proof, we shall see if he has or if that is a true fact. Ackman – why do you keep putting companies down? Are you bored? If so, there is these awesome islands you can move to and enjoy the billions of dollars you make and stop putting great companies down for no reason. Just doe us that favor and leave before you loose your own followers.

Covering now would hurt his credibility with government agencies, as well as hurt his reputation in the investment community. It would make this short investment seem speculative. I doubt that he is comfortable with the trade of quick profit vs long term reputation. He has bigger ambitions.

He is a patient guy, something he has proved in many long investments, and in particular in his one other big short investment – MBIA.

Therefore I doubt that he is now covering.

Anyone interested in how HLF might play out for Ackman, I recommend reading Confidence Game which chronicles his MBIA investment.

Since the time found an empty can and then went directly to sleep my life has totally changed. That night I had wonderful, amazing dreams. In the morning I noticed that my hair was starting to regrow. In the next week I lost 12 lbs eating a diet of spare ribs, potato chips and drinking water that I recycles through an old Mona Vie bottle. Also I no longer need Viagra or a date for any night of the week. Much younger woman now find me irresistible. My car runs better and gets better millage. I no longer think about money. The morning after I heard Herbalife’s name I found a lottery ticket in the street and won a half million dollars.
Strange people on the street stop me asking me for Herbalife, Amway, NuSkin, Monavie and other stuff. I need to find out what they are.
People you just need to let Herbalife name into your soul to be on the doorstep to heaven.
This is not a paid testimonial. In fact I don’t really know what a shake is but just the name has changed my life.

Remember the Herbalife Leader Secret Mantra “Never Give A Sucker An Even Break”

They deserve to become an inverted Pyramid. The leaders in jail and everyone else getting their money back.

I think that group deserves each other, and whatever carnage results should remain contained within their boundaries. So put this near the bottom of the list of America’s problems.
