Things To Note

Nu Skin is benefiting from efforts to strengthen sales leader and expand the customer base. Management is making significant investments in the digital platform to boost online sales amid the pandemic. The company’s focus on innovation and effective product launches have also been driving growth. We believe that such upsides are likely to have benefited the company’s performance in the quarter under review.

For the second quarter of 2021, Nu Skin projects revenues of $680-$705 million including favorable currency impacts of nearly 5%. The projection suggests year-over-year improvement of 11-15%. Quarterly earnings per share are anticipated between 97 cents and $1.07, indicating 20-32% growth from the year-ago quarter’s level.

That being said, Nu Skin’s gross margin has been contracting year over year for a while due to increased freight costs. Escalated selling expenses as well as general and administrative costs are also a threat to its performance.
