Algerian-born French entrepreneur and business executive Sue Youcef Nabi (Sue Nabi) has seen the market value of her stake in Coty Inc. increase by over $20 million over the past six days, driven by the recent surge in the shares of the multinational beauty company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

According to market data, Nabi’s stake in Coty has surged by $20.6 million in less than a week as investors on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) — the largest stock exchange in the world — renewed buying interest in Coty after a slow start this year.
