Big Changes at Avon and Procter & Gamble
Beauty companies Procter & Gamble and Avon Products Inc. are reportedly looking to divest problematic parts of their businesses. P&G has been shopping its beauty portfolio for months, and now Avon is considering selling its North American operations. This week, Avon’s investors drove its stock up 14.2 percent to $9.15. P&G’s stock quietly climbed 0.2 percent to $83.60. Beauty rival Coty once offered $10.7 billion for Avon in 2012, but Avon decided to continue alone.
