Nu Skin Shares Gain on Speculation That Chinese Probe Is Easing

Nu Skin Enterprises Inc. shares gained the most in eight months after the company agreed to pay fines to the Chinese government, signaling that an investigation into its sales practices could be nearing an end.

Nu Skin was fined $540,000 in China for selling items illegally and making product claims it couldn’t verify, according to a statement yesterday, about two months after the Chinese government announced the probe. Six employees were also fined $241,000 for unauthorized promotional activities.
