#Richemont signals caution for #luxury sector #stocks #trading

Richemont shares are trading 12% lower, to a 1-year low as it reported after it warns on Chinese demand, a market that has boosted demand for luxury goods. About 40% of Richemont's stores in China are currently closed, as Covid infections have led to lockdown measures. The Cartier-owner also said the suspension of its business in Russia knocked EUR168 million off of profit. Nonetheless, the company ended the quarter with EUR5.3 billion in cash and announced a special dividend.
