13:10 EDTHLF, GMCR, AAPLHerbalife down as renewed speculation of Einhorn short circulates
Shares of personal care and nutritional supplement maker Herbalife (HLF) are lower in afternoon trading amid renewed speculation that hedge fund manager David Einhorn has joined Bill Ackman in taking a short position in the stock. Ackman's short thesis on the multi-level marketing company is well documented and market participants have speculated that Einhorn has a short position as well ever since the head of Greenlight Capital questioned Herbalife management on a conference call. In his quarterly letter to investors in Greenlight, Einhorn jokingly attributed the funds lackluster quarterly performance to the facts that, "Our coffee was too hot, our apple was bruised, and our iron supplements didn't do down smoothly." Einhorn went on to explain in the same paragraph that the "coffee" reference applies to a previously disclosed short position in Green Mountain (GMCR) that was unprofitable during the quarter. At quarter end, Greenlight's largest disclosed long positions included Apple (AAPL), but the tech giant's shares fell during the quarter. Later in the letter, Einhorn discloses a new bearish thesis on iron ore, noting that the fund has shorted a number of stocks in the iron ore sector but not disclosing specific names. Greenlight states that in the fourth quarter the price of iron ore and related mining stocks rallied, but added that the fund is willing to be patient in its iron short position "given the considerable downside" potential. Some market participants have speculated Einhorn's reference to "iron supplements" in the opening paragraphs of the communication was a veiled reference to Herbalife, but the company was not mentioned by name in the letter. In early afternoon trading, Herbalife shares are down about 1.6% to $43.44.
