http://finance.yahoo.com/news/bernstein-liebhard-llp-announces-only-163600705.html | Did Jared Davis Overton (Orem Utah) Know about (ViSalus) Overstated, False and Misleading Statements?

The complaint charges Blyth and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Blyth is a marketing and manufacturing company that sells personal and decorative products throughout North America.

*More than $462,000,000 in market capitalization vanished !!

The complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s financial performance and future prospects. In particular, the complaint alleges that the nature and ongoing viability of the strong results being reported for ViSalus, Inc., a multilevel weight loss marketing company in which Blyth owns a controlling interest, were being overstated, and that this was masking declining performance in the Company’s other operating units and product lines.

The complaint further alleges that beginning with a September 21, 2012 Moody’s Investors Services cut in its outlook for the Company, the market began to learn through a series of partial disclosures ending on November 6, 2012, that the Company’s financial soundness and business metrics were not as they had been represented during the Class Period. As Blyth’s stock price fell with each of these revelations, more than $462 million in market capitalization vanished.

http://m.seekingalpha.com/article/1107821 | Is Kristen Sturgill (SLC Utah) Worried About Her Business Being Labeled “unfair and deceptive”

You shouldn’t need a Boston attorney to spot a pyramid selling scheme. You shouldn’t have to be a Wall Street quant to recognize a direct selling business that is an “endless chain.” And you shouldn’t have to wait for the FTC to tell you whether or not a particular multi-level marketing (MLM) company is “unfair and deceptive” when millions of people are being solicited. There are market-based, reasoned and well-researched tools and assessments available for individual investors, analysts and consumers to answer questions of MLM legality and sustainability. This article presents some of them.

The diverse or diametrically opposing views unleashed by questions and claims of hedge fund managers David Einhorn and William Ackman about the iconic multi-level marketing company, Herbalife International (HLF), and the related spikes in share prices of other MLM companies, such as Nu Skin (NUS), Usana (USNA), Medifast (MED), Blyth (BTH) and others, bear witness to a widely experience blind spot regarding multi-level marketing and pyramid schemes.

From the perspective of my work and involvement in multi-level marketing since the mid-90s, I observe that decades of confusing data, lack of transparency, inconsistent and lax law enforcement, cleverly diverting arguments, and outright false information about pyramid schemes and multi-level marketing have led to a broad decline in the ability of millions of people to recognize pyramid schemes. An “extraordinary popular delusion” regarding pyramid schemes has spread across the land, not unlike the confused thinking that accompanied the dot-com and housing/mortgage bubbles.
