Baltimore, Maryland / January 7, 2014 / In a recently released article, Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that a convergence of two key events is creating a perfect storm for the direct sellers of natural products such as Nu Skin, Herbalife, Usana Health Sciences, and ForeverGreen Worldwide (OTCQB – FVRG).
According to a recent article in Nutraceuticals World, the nation’s focus “on the Affordable Care Act and its higher cost of insuring patients is increasing the size of the market for nutraceuticals as more Americans seek to enhance their health and wellness and prevent chronic health issues” through the purchase of healthy products. One of the megatrends in this segment is the huge growth in the functional or nutritional beverage market, which plays to the strength of the aforementioned companies.
Another big trend is the growth abroad in the direct sales industry. According to the Direct Selling Association, the largest market is the U.S., with $30 billion in goods and services sold by 16 million independent sales people. However, markets in Asia such as Japan, with roughly $25 billion in annual are playing an ever-increasing role. Therefore, firms that have the largest global footprint may prove to generate the greatest sales growth next year.
As noted in the article, “ForeverGreen boasts what may be the largest global sales footprint, and popular functional beverage and specialty products to treat chronic health issues such as back and other inflammation, which dovetail with the most important industry trends. Yet, the company, which may be the fastest growing publicly traded firm in the space, trades at the lowest valuation.”
Much like Nu Skin and Herbalife, which offer personal care and nutritional products, ForeverGreen’s sales are driven by the popularity and efficacy of its popular FrequenSea™ whole-food beverage with industry exclusive Marine Phytoplankton and the new, FDA-listed Class 1 Medical Device PowerStrips offering to treat pain.
In the article, Goldman cites the expectation that these and other exclusive products are expected to enable the company to double its sales in 2014 and drive a big rise in earnings as well. Moreover, given the favorable trends afforded the direct marketing space and the favorable valuations associated with stocks such as ForeverGreen, Nu Skin and Herbalife, consumers and investors alike could be rewarded.
