I am short Natural Health Trends Corp (NHTC). I believe the company is a pyramid scheme selling garbage products and its stock will crash when the scheme unravels. Thankfully I haven’t needed to spend $50 million investigating this, nor does my pitch have a 360 page slide deck.
NHTC is a “network marketing company” (their words) selling variouslotions,powders,juices, and adream to become wealthy and live a glamorous lifestyle. The products are generic yet make bold promises using comically stupid language. For example, theirCluster X2 is purified water with a “high level of electromagnetic power” that can “increase cellular hydration.” This is like GE marketing lightbulbs as "photonic-based pigmentation enhancement devices." Ultimately, it’s a 4oz bottle of water that costs $75. Considering the ingredients are mostly just water and a couple of fruit juice extracts, it’s disconcerting that the product loudly warns people not to have it touch a metal utensil.
