Chinese tax changes modestly positive for cosmetics makers, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink noted that the Chinese Ministry of Finance has reduced or eliminated the consumption tax on all cosmetic products as of October 1 to stimulate demand and growth, which she views as a modest positive for Estee Lauder (EL), Avon Products (AVP) and Coty (COTY). Of the three, Estee Lauder has the highest exposure to China, which makes up about 10% of its annual revenues, Wissink added.
