The luxury good sector is undergoing a resurgence, with LVMH, Kering and Montcler all outperforming year-to-date, the analyst said.

With China accounting for 20-25 percent of group sales and roughly 30 percent of Louis Vuitton’s sales, “the health of the Chinese consumer is key to the LVMH investment case. We remain very positive, on the back of recent data," the analyst said.
Chauvet estimates LVMH will deliver an attractive three-year CAGR of 9 percent, 10 percent and 11 percent on sales, EBIT and EPS respectively.Price Action
