Pershing Square Capital Management announced that it will webcast "The American Dream Denied," a video about Herbalife, tomorrow, February 9, at 11:30 am Eastern time. Pershing stated: "Herbalife has attempted to convince regulators, elected officials, and the public that it has cleaned up its act and made substantial improvements to its business model. But the stories of Herbalife distributors show that millions of people are still being harmed by the company every day. The changes the company has made do not impact Herbalife's pyramidal compensation plan or the predatory practices Herbalife uses to deceive aspiring entrepreneurs. The 'new Herbalife' is no different than the old Herbalife."

06:05 EDTMNKDPiper calls MannKind a penny stock with a mid-cap valuation
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer calls MannKind's business strategy "flawed and desperate" following the company's conference call yesterday to discuss recent developments. The company is trying to appeal to "less sophisticated retail investors," Schimmer tells investors in a research note. MannKind does not have the ability to generate adequate revenue to offset the spending requirements over the next 12 months for Afrezza, the analyst contends. Schimmer sees no reason to own the shares and believes the likelihood that the company declares bankruptcy this year "is not out of the realm of possibility." He calls MannKind a "penny stock company with a mid-cap valuation." The analyst reiterates an Underweight rating on the biopharmaceutical company with a 5c price target. The stock closed yesterday down 1c to 99c.
