What are analysts saying about Nu Skin Enterprises stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nu Skin Enterprises stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nu Skin is a premier anti-aging company. The company's anti-aging products feature the ageLOC line of products including ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra firming serum, the ageLOC TR90 weight management and body shaping system, ageLOC R2 nutritional supplement, and ageLOC Transformation daily skin care system. " (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We think that weighed on the shares after hours but the company did a fine job of explaining the sharp shift in EPS and sales to the 4Q. In the 4Q17, they expect LTO sales of $100 million, with none in the 2Q or 3Q. Last year there were $106 million of LTO sales in the 2Q and $56 million in the 3Q so that is the tough comp we face this year in the 2Q and 3Q, and the easy comp in 4Q. The company shrunk its share base by 4.2% Y/Y, more aggressive than the normal 2%-3% share shrink. Yet, only acquired $7 million of shares in the 1Q. New CFO Mark Lawrence affirmed his support of the company’s capital allocation policy. At quarter end the company had only $81 million of net debt." (5/4/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Last night, NUS reported 4Q results. Despite an early December update, 4Q revenue still missed the low end of guidance by ~$19m (-3.4%), well below street estimates (-5.2%, -$29m). An unexpected +$0.10 tax add-back helped EPS reach the guidance midpoint (in-line with consensus). 1Q revenue/EPS -2.6% and -11% below the street (midpoint) may weigh on the stock, but reaffirming FY guidance suggests an optimistic outlook for LumiSpa in 4Q' 1Q guidance below the street may weigh on shares near-term. Although management reaffirmed its FY guidance, 1Q revenue of $480-500m (implied 3-8% CC growth) is just below the street at the high end (consensus $503m), and -2.6% below at the midpoint. EPS guidance of $0.47-0.51 is -$0.06 (-11%) below consensus at the midpoint. This weak 1Q guidance, combined with the 4Q revenue miss, may weigh on the shares nearterm. However with FY guidance re-affirmed, easing comps in 2H, and an expected launch of LumiSpa in October, the back half of 2017 sets up for accelerating revenue growth, which could prove to be an upside catalyst for the stock."
