Timing:  We bought at the six month high.
Reason:  Nu Skin has a loyal customer base. Multilevel marketing firms tend to attract additional salespeople during recessions and consequently experience strong sales as the recession ends.

Reason:  Several insiders have sold substantial quantities of stock in the last few days. The quarterly reports will be coming out soon. The stock has trended upward recently, so it seems the insiders believe it may be overvalued and are cashing out before the quarterly report comes out.
