    Burberry (BURBY.PK) spikes 8.2% in London after the company confirms falling demand for luxury goods in Asia, particularly China, but reports comparable-sales growth of 1% in Q2. While that's well down from 16% last year, it's above Burberry's previous guidance. Last month, a profit warning sent its shares tumbling over 20% and hit its U.S. peers. On watch today are COH, RL, WRC, KORS and TIF. (PR)

    Europe-based analysts see the selloff in Burberry (BURBY.PK -19.0%) as a bit overdone in relation to the actual profit warning issued by the luxury-goods maker. To back their case, they note that a number of other European high-end sellers have been positive in the last weeks including LVMH (MAGOF.PK 0.0%) which backed its H2 forecast. If they're on to something, luxury names on this side of the pond may have sold off a bit harshly off of Burberry-centric news: COH -1.9%, RL -2.9%, WRC -0.7%, KORS -1.9%, TIF -1.3%.

    The double whammy of a downgrade on Coach and a biting profit warning from British luxury player Burberry (BURBY.PK)  is cutting a wide swath of selling in the sector. Though some of Burberry's struggles are pegged as "self-afflicted," the company's weakening sales in Europe and China has to be considered alarming for high-end sellers. Premarket: COH -3.4%, RL -2.7%, WRC -0.7%, KORS -1.2%,, TIF -2.5%.
