The flood of tourists into Hong Kong from Mainland China looks promising to global retailers setting up shop in the region, although the tilt towards more bargain shopping could be a trend to watch for high-end sellers. Outlet malls have seen the biggest gains in traffic and sales in Hong Kong which sets up nicely for retailers that planned a strategy which pivots on squeezing profits from the channel. Hong-Kong watching: Nike (NKE), Limited Brands (LTD), Gucci (GUCG.PK), Prada, Louis Vuitton (LVMUY.PK), Coach (COH), Ralph Lauren (RL), Michael Kors (KORS), Swatch (SWGAY.PK), Burberry (BURBY.PK), and Tiffany (TIF).
