Elements to consider before selling or buying Herbalife shares

Analysis N°1

We know that the Herbalife group is doing its utmost to ensure that its products and activities benefit from real support from medical rating agencies. Obtaining certifications from these agencies would of course help to remove the doubts and fears of consumers regarding both the effectiveness and the non-hazardousness of the natural products offered by this company.

Analysis N°2

Herbalife is also relying heavily on the recent creation of customer loyalty programs that should begin to bear fruit after a few years with undoubtedly higher sales.

Analysis N°3

Herbalife now uses an increasingly skilled workforce for the production of its products, which strengthens both its brand image and its long-term productivity.

Analysis N°4

However, competition in the natural health and beauty products sector is becoming increasingly strong and concerns in particular the entry into this market of large pharmaceutical companies.

Analysis N°5

It is also noted that the cost of research to innovate even more is still relatively expensive and that Herbalife must therefore find a way to quickly make these operations profitable.

Analysis N°6

Finally, Herbalife will undoubtedly still have to face certain obstacles from governments and current and future legislation, which are becoming increasingly drastic with regard to healthcare.

Positive factors for Herbalife shares
The factors in favour of a rise in the Herbalife share price:

First of all, the Herbalife group has become a brand name known and recognised as a quality brand all over the world. It owes this excellent reputation in the eyes of the general public to the quality of its products but also to their usefulness. It should also be noted that the group offers a wide range of products whose interest is first measured by experts during in-depth scientific analyses and by studies on consumer purchasing habits.

Herbalife can also rely on a strategic distribution network that enables it to achieve significant sales and on a very well-functioning marketing strategy that has proven itself over many years.

Finally, Herbalife is also a company with an international outlook as it is present in many countries around the world. It thus protects itself from risks related to a single geographical sector.

Negative factors for Herbalife shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Herbalife share price:

Among the biggest negative points that can be highlighted about the Herbalife company is the increased mistrust of consumers with regard to the possible side effects of treatments and medicines composed of plant extracts, especially with regard to health and weight loss. It goes without saying that Herbalife's sales suffer from this mistrust. It will probably take a few years before consumers become truly comfortable with this type of natural product.

The Herbalife brand, although enjoying an excellent image in many countries, remains less well known and therefore less popular in certain regions, which prevents it from establishing itself on a long-term basis. Therefore, the group still has some efforts to make to boost its international development.
