10:13 EDTMED, HLF, WTW, NTRIMedifast tumbles after acting CFO resigns
Shares of Medifast (MED), which distributes and sells health and diet products, are retreating after the company announced that its acting CFO Edward Powers had resigned, effective no later than January 4. Powers became acting CFO on November 13 and is also the company's principal accounting officer. Medifast competes with Herbalife (HLF), which has come under fire recently from billionaire fund manager Bill Ackman. According to Ackman, Herbalife is operating a pyramid scheme that will eventually collapse. Ackman is shorting Herbalife's stock. Other companies that compete with Medifast are Weight Watchers (WTW) and NutriSystem (NTRI). In early trading, Medifast slumped $3.47, or 11.82%, to $25.89, while Herbalife advanced $1.08, or 4.14%, to $27.14 after the Wall Street Journal reported earlier that it has hired a law firm to help it fight back against Ackman.
