Wall Street Likes Nu Skin

October 23, 2013

Stock price estimates jump more than 30%

Nu Skin Enterprises has had plenty of good news in recent years including surging sales in international markets, successful new product launches and new state-of-the art facilities around the world. Wall Street certainly likes what it sees and hears out of the Provo, UT-based company. JPMorgan thinks shares of Nu Skin should continue to perform well through the remainder of the year following the company's better than expected Q3 results and raised guidance. The firm upped its price target for shares to $130 (up from $97) and keeps an overweight rating on the stock.

This week, Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. opened its new Innovation Center and expanded US headquarters, demonstrating its commitment to expand its infrastructure to support growth. The company has invested more than $100 million in the new corporate facilities.  In addition, Nu Skin announced that it expects to complete its new Greater China regional headquarters and Innovation Park in Shanghai by the end of the year.  

"These new facilities reflect our investment in our future and our commitment to advancing Nu Skin's long-term growth potential," said Ritch Wood, chief financial officer. "We continue to foster a culture of innovation, providing a steady stream of state-of-the-art anti-aging solutions and a continually attractive business opportunity for our sales leaders. These new facilities also reflect the hard work and dedication of the entire Nu Skin family and our vision to become the leading direct selling company in the world."

The expanded US headquarters campus includes more than 300,000 total square feet that features five research laboratories, a state-of-the-art data center, environmentally friendly design, and modern office and meeting spaces. The heart of the Innovation Center is Nu Skin's Center for Anti-Aging Research, which will be the company's global center for innovation and scientific discovery. The new research facilities will be instrumental in the development and evaluation of Nu Skin products.

The Innovation Park in Shanghai will serve as the regional headquarters for the Greater China region, including a world-class anti-aging research and development laboratories, as well as manufacturing facilities, modern meeting spaces and green areas. It is located in the heart of Shanghai's Fengxian District on a 9.4 acre parcel of land and encompasses more than 365,000 square feet. The Innovation Park features three buildings: a headquarters which will house employees, a product development production and distribution center, and a vision hall which will include a 230 seat auditorium.
