Background: Herbalife Ltd., a network marketing company, sells weight management, nutritional supplement, energy, sports and fitness, and personal care products worldwide. It offers science-based products in four principal categories: weight management; targeted nutrition; energy, sports, and fitness; and outer nutrition.

Strong fourth-quarter earnings growth is expected by Wall Street after the market closes on February 18, 2014. The consensus mean is $1.24 a share, a gain of 19 cents (15.3%) from $1.05 during the corresponding quarter last year. Analysts' estimates this quarter range from $1.15, to a high of $1.29 per share.

The company currently pays $1.2 per share in dividends for a yield of 1.8%.

Short interest with this stock is very high. More than one in five shares is short. Shorts are the smart money, but when they pile on this hard it can backfire too. The proportion of the float short is 28.8%.
