Is High-End Retail Bouncing Back?


Tiffany is finally back in the winner's circle. After missing expectations for several quarters in a row, the jewelry retailer surprised investors by reporting a strong 9% boost in global sales to start 2013. Revenue in its U.S market rebounded from a disappointing holiday season, as well.

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos discusses Tiffany's results, and compares them to another luxury goods brand, Coach , which has seen some improvement in its business this year too. Demitrios argues that, for investors looking for exposure to the higher end of the retail market, Coach is the better bet right now.

The retail space as a whole is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of last century. Only those most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward those investors who understand the landscape.
