Once a popular cosmetics and luxury shopping platform, Jumei Youpin was listed on the NYSE in 2014 after benefitting from its founder Chen Ou’s online KOL marketing. Its share price rose from $27.25 at the opening to $39.45, with a peak market value of $5.78 billion. Jumei’s stock price has since fallen to $17.43, and has been blighted by counterfeit product scandals.
