Nu Skin Releases Better-Than-Expected Preliminary Q4 Results

Investors in Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE: NUS  ) hungry for good news from the company got what they wished today. The firm released its preliminary Q4 results indicating that revenue came in at $1.1 billion, resulting in earnings of $2.00 to $2.02 per share, or approximately $119 million to $120 million.

Both figures would exceed the average analyst projections, which currently stand at $1.0 billion for top line and $1.92 for EPS.

The upside surprises if realized would be a relief for Nu Skin's shareholders, who have seen the stock price wither since a Chinese government agency launched an investigation into the company's operations last month. This was on the heels of a newspaper report that said the company was operating a "suspected illegal pyramid scheme."

Nu Skin is scheduled to release its official Q4 and fiscal 2013 results before the market opens on Thursday.
