Makeup sales over 2020 were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home trend, and we expect them to remain under pressure in 2021 as well. However, sales should see a recovery over 2022.

So What?

EL stock has been a strong performer, rising by about 52% over the last 12 months, driven by a solid performance of its skincare segment through the pandemic. However, we think the stock still has a little more room to run as its makeup, fragrance, and haircare divisions stage a recovery. We value EL at $361 per share, a premium of 10% over the market price.
