I've been following HLF, held a small position last year, got in and out for an OK 12% profit making about 2k on the trade --- thats right im a player uh huh, 2G homie... i went to the club later that night to celebrate and made it a light drizzle. Was interested in HLF initially because they make good money and I wanted to be on the "owner" (kind of) end of an MLM instead of the worker bee distributor. Missed all this latest excitement in the stock itself although when I was watching that battle live on CNBC I couldn't believe it --- "did Icahn just say Ackman was like a little Jewish crybaby getting beaten up in a playground? No way..." Ackman is a smoother fellow but I have to question if anyone in that position would truly be operating from an altruistic desire to save the world from predatory businesses. Either way this entire thing is very entertaining.
