On CAPS, 32% of the 654 members who have rated Herbalife believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Brettmj, succinctly summed up the Herbalife bear case for our community: "Overpriced products, even if it isn't classified as a pyramid scheme this one will die off. [Underperform call] might go into the red for awhile but eventually people will come around to much better cheaper alternatives that don't have questionable sales tactics."
