Richemont announces venture with Alibaba

Richemont announces venture with Alibaba

Last week Richemont (CFR:JSE) announced its joint venture with Alibaba. An opportunity for mass distribution like this could see Richemont’s sales soar over the coming years. Especially into China where Alibaba has a strong presence and China is expected to account for nearly 50% of the luxury good market in the next six years. 


And CFR’s share price has bottomed out around R100 after a fall from above R133 8 weeks ago. Investors and Asset managers will be accumulating at this level, which will see the price start to rise. Look at the chart below. 

Buy CFR below R105.00 with a target price of R130.00. Risk averse investors can place a stop loss at R95.00 to limit their risk.
