Herbalife shares up, down, up

The weight loss company shares jumped in morning trading after Dan Loeb's hedge fund bought an 8% stake, or 8.9 mil shares, in the company. Then reports emerged that the SEC was looking into the company in response to noted short seller Bill Ackman calling Herbalife (HLF) a "pyramid scheme."
