What Analysts Are Recommending for Herbalife Stock

Ratings summary and target price 

The majority of analysts providing recommendations for Herbalife (HLF) are maintaining a “neutral” outlook. But given the company’s weak sales and EPS (earnings per share) performance, there could be some downward revisions in the target price. Herbalife reported a YoY (year-over-year) fall in its top-line and bottom-line results in 3Q17. Continued challenges in several regions, including the United States (SPY), Mexico, Central America, and China, are projected to result in lower sales. Input cost pressure stemming from adverse currency movements could hurt the company’s profitability.
