The selection was narrowed down according to the highest-revenue companies in each of 52 industries — a ... Read More »

How Amazon Could Steal The Mid-Tier Luxury Market

fb (1)

Amazon could launch vertically integrated, mass-customized brands of its own that use technology to smooth the customer shopping process, similar to Indochino. While Amazon isn’t likely to get catalog coverage from many of the ultra-luxury brands, it does have the ability to make a number of mid-level luxury brands less relevant to large segments of Amazon customers, replacing those brands through the merchandising of its own private-label luxury brands at prices that encourage even the slightly price-sensitive luxury products customer to consi...

puma (1)

Kering said on Thursday it planned to distribute 70 percent of Puma shares to its investors, leaving it with only a 16 percent stake, confirming an exclusive Reuters report. Puma shares were down 4.4 percent at the close as some investors worried about the company losing a powerful backer. Kering stock was down almost 1 percent. The deal comes after a recent turnaround at Puma, which struggled for years following Kering's 5.3 billion euros ($6.4 billion) purchase in 2007. The French firm, meanwhile, has long wanted to focus purely on its hig...

craft (1)

In fact, the industry is in rude health. According to government statistics, crafts were the fastest growing component of Britain’s heralded creative industries in 2016, up 44pc on 2010 and contributing £420m of gross value added to the economy. That might be peanuts compared to the music or film industries, but the numbers are going in the rig... Read More »

Facebook’s alternative news feed might make it more ‘meaningful’ – but it’s all about business

fb

On the face of it, the decision may seem like corporate suicide. Why would Facebook, one of the world's most powerful companies, deliberately harm engagement with its own product? The answer, critics suggest, may lie beyond Zuckerberg's stated desire to "fix" Facebook, and in fact be a smart business decision. The proposed changes include drastically altering the news feed, filtering posts from publishers so they no longer distract from those shared by friends and family. The Facebook chief executive says this will encourage more "meaning... Read More »
