Investors had wiped $14.3 billion off the South Korean giant’s market cap.

Samsung Electronics’ SSNLF 2.46% shares fell to their lowest level in nearly two months on Monday after the tech giant told customers to switch off and return their new Galaxy Note 7 smartphones due to fire-prone batteries.




Investors had wiped 15.9 trillion won ($14.3 billion) off the South Korean firm’s market capitalization as of 03:03 GMT, as a series of warnings from regulators and airlines worldwide raised fears for the future of the flagship device.

“Some said initially the Galaxy Note 7 could be the best smartphone ever, but now the phone may go down as the worst ever,” IBK Securities analyst Lee Seung-woo said, predicting weak sales in the fourth quarter.

Samsung Electronics’ common shares were down 6.3% to 1,476,000 won each after touching their lowest level since July 12 and were on track for their biggest daily percentage drop in more than four years.

Analysts said the recall could torpedo Galaxy Note 7 sales and have a lasting impact on the $211 billion company’s brand image, which could derail a recovery in its smartphone market share against rivals like Apple AAPL -2.12%.

On Saturday, the global smartphone leader urged all customers to turn off their Note 7s and return them as soon as possible as part of the recall, which it voluntarily initiated on Sept. 2.
