    Retail analyst Rahul Sharma raises the possibility that purse strings in China could be loosening again after retail sales in the nation came in strong recently and Macau gambling picked up again. Good news from China's high-end spenders would also be good news for Tiffany's (TIF +0.8%), Ralph Lauren (RL +0.8%), Coach (COH +0.9%), Estee Lauder (EL +0.7%), and Michael Kors (KORS +0.4%).

The firm appears to be buying into the Estee Lauder China growth story extolled by executive chairman William Lauder on CNBC.

    China's retail sales shot up 14.9% in October, providing companies selling in the region a reason to breath just a tad bit easier. The China Generak Chamber of Commerce estimates retail sales will surpass 20 trillion yuan ($3.21T) in 2012 and add another 15% to that mark by 2015. But the trick for U.S. companies with China is to move into rural areas in order to tap into growth potential without stepping into quicksand if brand recognition isn't strong or prices are too high. Walking the tightrope: F, EL, YUM, SBUX, TIF, MCD.
