- A new survey on luxury spending by wealthy consumers in China indicates a soft demand trend may continue.
- Spending on gifts fell 25% last year, while overall spending by the wealthy fell 15%.
- A number of factors are in play with Chinese consumption taxes high and the government cracking down on corruption, but the underlying trend is that a surprising number of high net worth consumers are leaving China for new residences overseas.
- The good news for the sector is that some of the lost sales could be recaptured in different markets.

- Deutsche Bank hikes its PT on PVH to $145 ($125 previous) and reiterates a Buy rating ahead of the company's Q2 results announcement later today.
- Analyst Greg Poole expects an in-line Q2, a modest raise, and continued long-term growth. Poole notes, "Despite a recent slowdown in U.S. apparel industry trends, the market should continue to like the PVH story given: (1) potential synergies from the Warnaco integration, (2) out-year payoffs to this year's investments, and (3) a high-quality play on global growth (particularly if Europe is bottoming)."
PVH Corp is an apparel company, which designs and markets branded dress shirts, neckwear, sportswear, jeanswear, intimate apparel, swim products and, to a lesser extent, footwear and other related products.
