August Saw A Significant Drop In Direct Selling Stocks

The Direct Selling Capital Advisors Direct Selling Index (DSCI) dropped 8.4% in August, marking the index’s second consecutive monthly decrease and its lowest monthly performance since March 1, 2020. In comparison, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) increased 1.9 percent in August and 1.3 percent in July over the previous two months.

Three DSCI members fell by double-digit percentage points in August—Medifast, Inc. (NYSE: MED); The Beachbody Company, Inc. (NYSE: BODY); and Sharing Services Global Corporation (OTC: SHRG)—while an equal number rose by more than 10%—eXp World Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPI); Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE: TUP); and Mannatech, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTEX). BODY and SHRG, surprisingly, were among the equities that fell by more than 10% in July.

In sum, 11 of the DSCI’s 17 equities, including seven of the eight small-cap firms, lost value in August.

The DSCI has gained a total of 82.8 percent since the tracking period began in March 2020, compared to 35.9% for the DJIA. The DSCI has gained 15.7 percent year to far, while the DJIA has gained 14.2 percent.

The DSCI’s poor performance over the last two months has effectively erased the prior two months’ large gains, particularly the 18.4 percent increase in May.
