Clearly something is happening here. It might be these liver failure cases weighing on the stock? maybe Icahn Unloading and I'm sure Trade War fears would not help this situation either.

Regardless this POS is back in Free Fall! Ackman should jump back on board lol!

The Herbalife Ltd (NYSE:HLF) Chart Indicates Downside

Herbalife Ltd (NYSE:HLF) is a leading global nutrition company. Recently, the stock has tried to recapture its 50-day moving average but has failed on multiple attempts over the past month. When a stock trades below a key moving average it will generally be viewed as a negative in the chart. Today, HLF stock is trading around the $68.00 level which is just above the important 200-day moving average at $67.45. A failure to hold this key area will indicate further weakness in the equity and a potential decline down into the $61.00 level. The $61.00 area is where there should be solid institutional support. This level is where the stock was supported in August 2017. Often, prior support levels will be defended when retested.

Herbalife Slides After Outlook Renews Fears About FTC Accord

By Nick Turner


Bill Ackman has waged battle against Herbalife since 2012

Herbalife Ltd. declined as much as 5.3 percent in late trading after delivering a disappointing forecast, renewing concerns that a settlement with regulators will hamper its growth.

The nutrition company said on Tuesday that it doesn’t expect sales to grow in the current quarter. Earnings also will be lower than analysts had estimated.

Investors have been closing watching Herbalife’s results in the wake of last year’s agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, which forced the company to revamp its U.S. operations and pay $200 million to refund distributors.



The tepid outlook sent Herbalife shares as low as $63 in extended trading. The stock had been up 38 percent this year through Tuesday’s close.

The FTC embarked on its investigation after investor Bill Ackman publicly bet $1 billion against the company’s stock more than four years ago and accused it of being an illegal pyramid scheme. Herbalife, based in Los Angeles, has repeatedly denied Ackman’s allegations.

The FTC settlement obligated Herbalife to start showing that the majority of its U.S. revenue is generated by consumers. Ackman has said that the company’s sales are mostly fueled by Herbalife distributors trying to reach income payouts -- not legitimate demand for its weight-loss shakes and energy drinks.

Herbalife expects third-quarter sales to range from flat to down as much as 5 percent. Earnings will be 65 cents to 85 cents a share, excluding some items. Analysts estimated $1.20 a share.

Bill Ackman's latest short thesis

Great summary of Bill Ackman's letter

Herbalife Short

Despite weak performance in Q1, share price has appreciated by more than 50% YTD
Due in part to HLF’s misleading portrayal of its first quarter operating performance and the company’s share repurchase program
Reported flat y-o-y constant-currency sales growth across the business
Growth in some markets (Mexico, EMEA, and China) was offset by substantial declines in others (South & Central America, North America, and Asia Pacific)
Reported significant persistent declines in South Korea, Brazil, and UK
Dramatic “pop” and “drop” reflected in HLF’s individual markets are highly characteristic of pyramid schemes, which achieved accelerated growth until a market reaches saturation, after which there is a dramatic decline in volumes as participants recognize that being a distributor is a money-losing proposition
While bullish investors have suggested that the company’s recent results show that it can manage effectively through the requirements of the FTC settlement, North American performance in the quarter does not yet reflect the impact of FTC permanent injunction
China at 20% of sales is HLF’s second largest segment after North America – while China realized 17% volume growth in Q1, management noted that there was a significant pull-forward in volume ahead of a 5% price increase in April
10-Q included significant notable changes to risk disclosures with respect to China
“Uncertainties relating to interpretation and enforcement of legislation in China governing direct selling and anti-pyramiding”
Would not be surprised to learn that HLF is under investigation by Chinese authorities, particularly in light of the recently announced Foreign Corrupt Practices investigation of HLF’s China operations by the Department of Justice and the SEC
Believe the injunctive relief imposed by the FTC is likely to weigh significantly on HLF’s financial performance in the coming quarters
Coupled with decelerating growth and substantial deterioration in many international markets, expect earnings to decline on an operational basis in 2017
Despite above issues, now trading at 17x the midpoint of management’s adjusted guidance
Currently trading at highest P/E ratio in its history as a result of recent stock price increase and its declining earnings

Herbalife Ltd. Announces Closing of $1.45 Billion Credit Facility

Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF), a global nutrition company, today announced that it has closed a new $1.45 billion senior secured credit facility, which consists of a $150 million revolving credit facility maturing 2022 and a $1.3 billion term loan maturing 2023.

“This credit facility affords us the financial flexibility to continue to create long-term value for our shareholders, capitalize on our solid business fundamentals, and realize our global market potential,” said Herbalife Chief Financial Officer John DeSimone. “We thank our banking partners for their confidence and commitment in Herbalife Nutrition.”

Credit Suisse acted as administrative agent for the new term loan and collateral agent for the credit facility, Rabobank acted as administrative agent for the revolving credit facility, and Citizens Bank, N.A. acted as documentation agent for the credit facility. Credit Suisse and Rabobank acted as joint book runners and joint lead arrangers of the transaction. The new facility replaces Herbalife’s senior secured revolving credit facility which was due to mature in March 2017.

I should have included in my yesterday's email that I'm currently short. But, am I confident going into earnings this afternoon? Nope. And, I've also asked myself if I'd be confident if I were long. Nope.

All I can say is that this stock/company is a headscratcher. I don't think you can be complacent going long or short. And, I think Bill Ackerman and Carl Ichan, despite their boasting, feel the same.

During the past couple of years, I've shorted HLF two or three times with little success. Even when bad news is released, the stock seems to motor upwards. I have my own theories regarding the reason, but that's another story!

But, eventually either the overall market goes down or there's some really bad HLF news and the price drops quickly. Those are the times I seem to break even on my shorts. But, other than those quick drops, the PPS has remained remarkably strong.

My prediction? We could go as high as 75 or it could drop as low as 40 during 2017. Yeah, I know it's not much of a prediction! It's the nature of the stock.
