What to Expect?

The Zacks Consensus Estimate has gone down by a notch in the past 30 days to 71 cents, which indicates close to 11% growth from the year-ago quarter’s figure. The consensus mark for revenues is $615 million compared with $616 million reported in the year-ago period.

Factors Impacting Results

Nu Skin’s top line is likely to gain on improved customer count in the first quarter. The company focuses on undertaking effective marketing programs, leveraging the social media platform and enhancing its sales leaders’ network to strengthen customer base. Additionally, the company is committed toward enhancing market share through advanced technology and well-strategized product programs.

These efforts will most likely reflect on the first-quarter performance, wherein revenues are expected to be $615-$635 million, reflecting year-over-year growth of 0-3%. Though volatile currency movements and gross margin weakness raise concerns, we expect Nu Skin’s endeavors to counter these hurdles and aid growth in the quarter to be reported.
