17:52 EDTAVP, HLF, USNA, TUP, NUSHerbalife plummets after results fall short of estimates
Shares of multi-level marketing company Herbalife (HLF) are sinking after the company's second quarter results missed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: After the bell, Herbalife reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of $1.55 and revenue of $1.3B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.57 and $1.36B, respectively. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Herbalife forecast Q3 adjusted EPS of $1.49-$1.53, far below consensus of $1.62. Q3 net sales growth was seen at 9%-11%, compared to consensus of $1.36B. Despite the Q2 miss and weak Q3 profit outlook, the company raised its FY14 adjusted EPS view to $6.17-$6.32 from $6.10-$6.30, versus consensus of $6.30. The company did, however, lower its FY14 net sales growth view to 8.5%-10.5% from 10%-12%, compared to consensus of $5.38B. The company also lowered its FY14 volume point growth view to 6%-8% from 8%-10%. Herbalife noted that, "Forward guidance excludes the impact of expenses (primarily for legal and advisory services) relating to the company’s response to information put into the marketplace by a short seller, which the company believes to be inaccurate and misleading, expenses related to a FTC inquiry, and the impact of non-cash interest costs associated with the company’s convertible notes and the expenses incurred related to the effort to recover costs related to the reaudit that occurred last year." PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, Herbalife fell $7.66, or about 11.35%, to $59.82 on heavy trading volume. Excluding the after-hours plunge, the stock is up approximately 15% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the multi- level marketing space include Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS), Usana Health Sciences (USNA), Avon Products (AVP), and Tupperware (TUP).

10:53 EDTHLFHerbalife continues recent strength with 10% jump
Shares of multi-level marketing company Herbalife (HLF) were up about 10% in morning trading after being up as much as 15% to $48.55 earlier this morning. On March 16, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted Herbalife its motion to dismiss a class action complaint brought on behalf of shareholders who allege that the company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the "nature, scope and legality" of the company's business and operations. On March 20, Pershing Square, which noted that Bill Ackman and the firm were not parties to the Awad case decided the prior week, said the court’s decision "did not address in any way whether Herbalife is an illegal pyramid scheme, nor did the Court exonerate or bless Herbalife’s business practices." Since March 16, Herbalife shares are up about 29%.

08:02 EDTHLFHerbalife wins dismissal of class action 'pyramid scheme' lawsuit
On March 16, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted Herbalife its motion to dismiss a class action complaint brought on behalf of shareholders who allege that the company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the "nature, scope and legality" of the company's business and operations. According to the plaintiffs, Herbalife and its executives, including CEO Michael Johnson, misrepresented Herbalife as a legitimate multi-level marketing company when it "is actually an illegal pyramid scheme." The court concluded that the suit's plaintiffs have not adequately pled loss causation, meaning that the court need not consider Herbalife’s alternative arguments, according to a court filing. Shares of Herbalife are up 3% in pre-market trading after the court dismissal was widely reported by Bloomberg last night.
