Herbalife Attracts Billionaire Investors Despite Ackman Controversy


Billionaire investors George Soros and Carl Icahn are investing a lot of money in the Network Marketing model through Herbalife, even though critic and short -seller, Bill Ackman is doing the opposite.

Billionaire Investor George Soros Invests In Network Marketing Through Herbalife

“Shares of Herbalife have roughly doubled this year. Shares were up $5.25, or 8.7%, to $65.29 in afternoon trading Wednesday.

Herbalife has become an increasingly public battleground between massive investors including Carl Icahn, who is betting on the stock, and Bill Ackman, who is betting against it.

Reports of the purchase by CNBC couldn’t be confirmed. The TV network didn’t provide the names of people it claims to have gotten the information from.

Ackman has been alleging that Herbalife is a pyramid scheme that deserves regulatory scrutiny. The company has denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, Icahn, a vocal critic of Ackman, has been accumulating shares of Herbalife and is now the biggest single investor, with a 16% stake, according to S&P Capital IQ.”

  1. This is very interesting. My concern is the George Soros is one of the biggest advocate for Monsanto and Big Food and the companies that are fighting GMO labeling. So I’m not sure this is a good more for Herbalife. πŸ™

  2. How can they call it a pyramid scheme after they’ve been in business for over 30 years? I’m not in Herbalife but just seems kinda late in my opinion

  3. Excellent post, it just shows how in a few years a small business can for so huge and attract so much money and big names absolutely love reading πŸ™‚
