Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of anti-aging and nutritional products distributor Nu Skin Enterprises
So what: After being crushed just three months ago after speculation was swirling that well-known short-seller David Einhorn might expose multilevel marketing scams at Herbalife
Now what: Although Nu Skin isn't strictly a Chinese company, it did more than double its sales in China in its most recent quarter and it does generate about a third of its revenue from the country. Nu Skin has, according to CNBC, completely denied the allegation and claims that China has completely endorsed its business methods within the country.
As usual, this is shaping up for another ugly battle between Citron and a company that does business in China. It's too early to call Nu Skin a buy or a sell based on this news, but I'd just assume avoid the stock altogether until everyone cools off and we get more details.
