Bernard Horn Comments on Christian Dior

French luxury goods company, Christian Dior ( CDI ), was up approximately 18% during the quarter, rebounding from a two-year slump due to China's economic slowdown and the government's anti-corruption movement to dissuade displays of wealth. In the second half of 2016, China's penchant for fashion and leather goods renewed, with sales at the fastest pace in more than a year. LVMH, of which Christian Dior owns 41%, successfully took control of family-owned luxury luggage maker Rimowa in Germany. International Gaming Technology ( IGT ), the Italian gaming and lottery company, continued its winning streak, recording good gaming revenues on the back of lottery license extensions in Georgia and Texas.
