Don't panic. Here's how you can embrace the stock's volatility.
I've read and watched and listened to countless market pundits (me included) pontificate about what this market decline is all about and how it will end.I have no idea how it will end. Bulletin: Neither does anybody else. But as we watch momentum-in-reverse, as I like to call it, there's something else at work here: There don't appear to be natural buyers for many of these stocks. In fact, if I look at my screen (which I included in this tweet) some of those that have been squeezed up the most are among those hitting hardest.Topping the list: Education Management, off 67%.
Nu Skin was a leading decliner within the consumer goods sector, falling $2.45 (-2.9%) to $82.01 on light volume
What you may have missed, including takes on Micron, SolarCity, Zagg, Fastenal, Family Dollar, Sysco and Nu Skin from the past week or so. When Micron reports earnings Thursday, expect a lot of focus on pricing in dynamic random-access memory (DRAM). In a piece on Reality Check headlined, Is Micron headed for a Tumble?, the issue in focus was whether DRAM capacity is quietly increasing -- and, if so, whether prices could start to slide. The battle lines, involving some very smart people, have been drawn: Bulls think prices could show surprising resilience, and bears don't. But, as I wrote, the answer isn't likely to come with this quarter's earnings. This is something that, if you believe the bears, is currently evolving. The bigger question is whether there is a new world order in memory.....

Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) rose on Monday after Chinese regulators issued a smaller-than-expected fine to the personal care product and dietary supplement company. Nu Skin received a $540,000 fine for illegal product sales and misleading local customers, according to Reuters. China's State Administration for Industry & Commerce (SAIC) said in a statement on its website that the company sold items outside the allowed range and exaggerated the possible results of using some of its products. The SAIC also noted some Nu Skin employees made unsanctioned sales and misled consumers. Six individual employees will also face fines totaling $241,000.

Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) fell Wednesday after the company said it could receive fines from Chinese regulators. Since media reports surfaced in January, Chinese regulators had been investigating whether the company, which develops and sells personal care products and nutritional supplements, disseminated false information and conducted illegal business in China. Furthermore, Nu Skin said in its annual filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it has temporarily stopped promotional meetings in China and is not currently accepting applications from potential new sales representatives in the country. Nu Skin said it could also face sanctions in China, which could include a formal suspension of new salesperson recruiting and a temporary suspension of its ability to sell products in certain Chinese markets.
Here's my quick read of the China disclosures in Nu Skin Enterprises' just-published (and delayed) 10- K. The only thing that really mattered to me was the highlighted line: "It is currently unclear what impact the adverse publicity and our voluntary actions will have on our business in this market in the longer term or whether these voluntary actions will be effective in addressing concerns of regulators in Mainland China. Regardless, it is likely that we will be fined and could potentially face some other form of sanctions from these regulators." That the company tells you that it is likely to be fined and that it could face other sanctions is significant. Nu Skin has already said that its audit committee is investigating the situation in China, where Chinese regulators have launched a probe of Nu Skin. Part of what the Chinese are looking at, the company says, is the "structure of our sales organizations and compensation and whether they violate application Chinese regulations."
What you may have missed, including insight on Herbalife, Usana and a yellow flag on Twitter. As Twitter tries to build growth in engaged users, I believe it needs to work on something else: making Twitter less arcane for new users. As I pointed out in a piece headlined "Twitter is Too Arcane," as Twitter pushes to the next level, if it wants to make itself appeal to the next-level of adopters it must make itself user friendly. Engaged users, or monthly average users by timeline view, by the way, is perhaps the critical metric to watch when the company next reports earnings. Don't buy any of those, "but, look it's up so much from a year ago" comments (even though it isn't). This is a growth company, so it's got to show sequential growth -- from quarter to quarter -- not quarter over quarter.
So much for those who laughingly insisted the FTC would never launch an investigation into Herbalife. An investigation is underway. It won't be over anytime soon and the outcome is uncertain. But in the meantime, what to expect? Beyond the broad and deep request for documents, which is likely to be part of a civil investigation by the FTC, the bigger issue is what the ramifications are for Herbalife and the entire industry, regardless of whether the investigation from Herbalife's perspective is a win, lose or draw. In two years of researching the industry, I've been struck by how multi-level marketers, as a whole, have slipped through regulatory cracks....
