Ever since Uncle Billy Ackman offloaded, this POS has been rolling over.
Don't own this stock or use it's products, just waiting for it's demise!
I haven't posted a chart for a while, had to post this one!

This MLM stock can only do so much to keep shorts at bay, it's done everything legally possible to get rid of shorts, they even squeezed Ackmans` $1 Billion short position at the top. The stock is over extended and there isn't much more HLF can do to manipulate the stock higher, they've already done buybacks, now a Dutch auction, Icahn is loaded up on HLF owning...

HD: announces on Tues 2/23 before market open.The rank is 55, the implied 32, neither of which is that great. If IV doesn't pop, I'll pass.
FSLR: announces on Tues 2/23 after market close. With a rank of 72 and an...
HLF pulled back from the 61.95 new YTD high (August 10, 2015) towards the
38.2% of the 49.00/61.95 rise at 56.93. Potentially a swing low could form near the 55.86 area (June 25 12, 2015 range high)/55.42 (50% of the 49.00/61.95 rise)/54.11 (near 61.8% of the 49.00/61.95 rise) ahead of the next upleg towards 61.95.
Short term: neutral
Long term: bullish
