Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in Herbalife Ltd. as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of Herbalife Ltd. are good, in fact the company ranks as a Good company, but there are some concerns with the legal problems with the company. For this reason, I am removing the stock from my Watch List.
