    Chanel, Estee Lauder (EL +1.3%), and Louis Vuitton (LVMUY.PK) stand at the top of the list of the most sought-after luxury brands in China, according to the 2013 edition of the World Luxury Index China. The success of certain brands in China and Hong Kong is far from accidental and could be tied to clever marketing. A simple move by Louis Vuitton to brand itself as "LV" in China is one example.

    Shares of Estee Lauder (EL) look ripe for some action after the company beat estimates with its Q1 report and raised profit guidance to above its previous outlook. The solid quarter from Estee Lauder had a lot to do with a recovery in the Europe/Middle East/Africa reporting region though flat sales for skin care items are a concern. Retail analyst Rahul Sharma thinks the guidance pitch from the company might be a low-ball offer.

    The LVMH read-through to luxury stocks: The LVMH report is consistent with the latest batch of retail sales data from China which indicates solid growth is still out there - but just not at the frothy levels of years past. An important trend to watch is that demand in Europe is getting considerable support from the steady string of tourists pouring in from China which magnifies the impact that Chinese consumers have on the sector.

    China retail sales rose 12.6% Y/Y in Q1 to 5.5451T yuan ($887.22B), according to government data. The pace of growth was a slight improvement over last month's mark and slightly beat estimates but a crackdown on corruption appears to be having an impact on luxury spending and could affect companies in the sector. On watch: EL, RL, COH, KORS, WRC, LVMHF.PK, GUCG.PK.

    The outlook for luxury spending in China looks promising, according to analysts. While the pace of luxury retail sales growth slipped in China from 2011 to 2012, the forecast for 2013 is for solid gains again. Chinese tourists taking advantage of a weak euro is also a factor. Luxury stocks to watch: Prada, Louis Vuitton (LVMUY.PK), Coach (COH), Ralph Lauren (RL), Michael Kors (KORS), Swatch (SWGAY.PK), Burberry (BURBY.PK), Estee Lauder (EL).

    Estee Lauder (EL +0.2%) makes Morgan Stanley's list of "20 for 2016" stocks which have differentiated business models. The take on the cosmetics company is that its high-growth, low-demand elasticity beauty product categories will drive long-term revenue and profit gains. The near future will also see Estee Lauder increase penetration in key emerging markets.
