YG's stock price went down even after the debut of Black Pink?

Despite the debut of Black Pink, its first new girl group in over seven years, YG's stock price has suffered a decline. 

Though the label's sales and operating income saw a rise compared to the previous year (YoY), the drastic decline in net profits is speculated to be the reason for the deflated stock price. 

YG's total revenues was a whopping 77.22 billion KRW (~$70.3 million USD) in the recently closed second quarter, a 70.7% rise from last year, and its total operating income was recorded to be 6.8 billion KRW (~$6.2 million USD), a 33.1% rise from the prior year. These distended numbers are mostly attributed to the promotions and activities of Big Bang and iKON, both of whom raked in millions for the company with tours, fan meets, and concerts. 

Unfortunately, YG's net profits and stock price tell an entirely different tale. Compared to last year, the label's profits dropped 43%, recording a net of 6.6 billion KRW (~$6 million USD) for the second quarter (Q2).

This drop in profits inevitably had a negative impact on YG's stock price, which closed at 34,100 KRW (~$31 USD) per share on August 11, after depreciating 3.67%. One year ago on August 11, 2015, YG's stock price closed at 57,225 KRW (~$52 USD) per share. Besides the financial results, THAAD may be having a negative impact for investors as well.

It's hard to say just yet if Black Pink had any direct impact on YG's stock price as the girls recently debuted. We'll simply have to wait until the end of the fiscal year and for more promotions from YG's hyped-up new girl group.

it hasn't been a week yet. you gotta chill- i mean what are you trying to do?

kpopmonsteryong Friday, August 12, 2016

LOL. what is Allkpop trying to do??? it's just 3 days after their debut, you expect them to rake in MILLIONS?????? Not even Michael Jackson or Taylor Swift did that. This is stupid news. How about SM and JYP then? And Starship? wth.

bitchyfangirl kpopmonsteryong Friday, August 12, 2016

Not sure how well-versed you are with stocks... but in most cases, a major announcement such as launching a new girl group will give a positive impact in the stock market; it usually raises stock price no matter if they have made money or not.

biancakeynes kpopmonsteryong Friday, August 12, 2016

Stock and income are two different things. Just like when some EXO members and Jessica left their groups, SM's stock dropped. Idk how exactly companies stock works, think of it like people who do business on Wall Street (New York) Stock Market. That's what it is.

biancakeynes kpopmonsteryong Friday, August 12, 2016

oh btw, this is an article to let you know that YG's stock dropped [since Black Pink's debut]. There's nothing AKP can do or trying to do, it's only an information. Not even their artist, or YG can do much about it.

mashivip4life kpopmonsteryong Friday, August 12, 2016

i can't speak for mj since that was so long ago but taylor swift didn't come from a label that guaranteed her success as soon as she would debut and hyped her up before her debut. the american music industry isn't all about which agency an artist comes from and her success was built over time so that's a stupid comparison, and you also don't know the difference between income and stocks.

*Quietly transferring the YG troll title to AKP*

lennyface4lyfe Friday, August 12, 2016

blackpink=snakes lol trying to steal the title of queen from 2ne1 even if 2ne1 lost a member they are still better then pukepunk or whatever there names are

yanglin870 lennyface4lyfe Friday, August 12, 2016

Good to know you think of 2ne1 so highly but u should respect the fact that these girls worked their butt off for so many years not knowing if they will debut or not. They didn't steal anything from anyone. In fact they earned their debut. And yes, 2ne1 are queens, they always will be no matter what and no one can replace them like no one can replace yourself. Now if you really are a Blackjack you should know that already.

lol 2ne1 died long ago just like bom's face

lye54 yanglin870 Friday, August 12, 2016

Queens of what? Please explain to me the crazy obsessions of fan arounf 2ne1? They are queen of what? I have seen girl group being as popular as 2ne1. Girl Generation, FX etc. Why is everybody always feel the need to compare oranges and apples? You can't because everyone is different. Nobody is stealing shit from anybody!!!

Tien_YG_BABAY lennyface4lyfe Friday, August 12, 2016

Hey they don't try to steal it. Bi+ch you got problem? 2NE1 always the queen, alway. BLACKPINK is just a new girl group, a member said BLACKPINK is following 2NE1 footstep to become like them. You need to think again be for you speak

lennyface4lyfe lye54 Friday, August 12, 2016

and you idiot punkepunk and 2ne1 have the same concept except pukepunk is far watered down and it sounds horribl your stans are trash

Idontgiveafvck lye54 Friday, August 12, 2016

WTF every fandom has the right to claim their idols a queen/king.. Its subjective. Its kpop dude everyone claims their idols are queens/kings. To be clear i'm not siding anyone and I don't think she's/he's a blackjack.

yanglin870 lye54 Friday, August 12, 2016

They are the QUEENS of KPOP beacuse they are the ones who broke records and helped make kpop as big as it is today. And can you name the girl groups that are as popular as 2NE1 and SNSD? As far as I know when these two girl groups make comebacks, they win charts, sales and everything against your so called "popular girl groups".

lennyface4lyfe yanglin870 Friday, August 12, 2016

pukepunk has been out for 4 days honey calm down also Missa A and 2ne1 has all those records they have when they debuted so guess what honey THEY ARENT ANY SPECIALL LOL

lol AKP are snakeeee lol YG still have higher stock value than SM and JYP ..... why they trying to give yg a bad image smh...

lee_myung wkzn Friday, August 12, 2016

Higher than JYP ..yes but it's not higher than SM and u can check numbers

whosewhose lee_myung Friday, August 12, 2016

Incorrect, YGE does have "higher stock value" than SM. SM has a higher "market capitalization" than YG because SM has more stocks than YGE.

lee_myung whosewhose Friday, August 12, 2016

Are u sure ??? Anyway YG is dropping down

L_catzzz lee_myung Saturday, August 20, 2016

Well since oftenly the stock's price is at or near the value and this article did mentioned about stock price, so yes, YG is higher than SM. Even as of now, YG stock price is at 33,550 KRW while SM is 28,600 KRW. *PS: SM is dropping down too.

reepz Thursday, August 11, 2016
