UPDATE (November 25, 2019): After purchasing a 51 percent stake in Kylie Cosmetics for $600 million USD, Coty Inc.‘s stock has plunged.

Coty stocks were down from $12.22 USD to $11.53 USD just after purchasing Jenner‘s namesake cosmetics line. Following an initial increase, the shares continued to trend downward to roughly 5.5 percent from its position at the start of the week. Analysts expected that the ownership of Kylie Cosmetics would result in a surge, but ultimately they dropped to the lowest they have been in around a month.

Coty was hoping to revive the company through Jenner’s profitable brand, and is expected to expand the product offerings of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin. Coty also predicted that Kylie Skin will likely reach $25 million USD in sales in 2019. According to The Wall Street Journal, Coty has lost half its value since 2016. Over recent years, the label has taken $4 billion USD in write-downs. Let us know your thoughts on the situation in the comment section below.
