Buy It On Beckham

Superstar and soccer legend David Beckham touched down in Los Angeles Friday. And while ticket sales have already soared since he signed with the L.A. Galaxy, is there fast money in Beckham's lengthy lists of promotional tie-ins?

CNBC’s Jane Wells joins the guys for this conversation. Here are excerpts from her report.

David Beckham, he’s Tiger Woods, Tom Cruise and The Beatles all in one. And the 32 year old is attempting to take soccer to the next level in America.

His salary is $5.5 million (50 times the average.) If you add in bonuses, new sponsorships and revenue sharing it could reach $50 million a year.

A half million new jerseys with his name have already been ordered with sponsor Herbalife plastered on the front. It’s the company’s largest marketing investment.

And ticket sales are up $20 million.

Jane Wells says Herbalife Ltd (HLF) stock moved higher on Friday.

Dylan Ratigan asks Jeff Macke if HLF stock is a buy from the David Beckham sponsorship?

The Lone Wolf cries, “No!”
