Gucci and Louis Vuitton have topped the fashion category of the world’s most valuable luxury brands, according to Brand Finance’s annual report. The fashion houses came in second and third respectively on the general round-up after Porsche, which was ranked the most valuable luxury brand in the world.

The brand valuation consultancy’s annual list ranks businesses based on the overall brand value as well as their power in influencing consumers’ choices, based on criteria including marketing investments, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction and corporate reputation, according to WWD.

Other fashion houses which ranked highly on the list included Cartier in third, Chanel in fourth and Hermès in fifth. Rolex, Dior and Coach also featured in the top 10.

Despite these brands performing well against competitors, the outlook is still predictably bleak following an incredibly difficult year globally as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Brand Finance

Tesla’s Model 3 Lost In The World’s Most Advanced EV Market In A Peak Month (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Introduction

Norway is a small automotive market but is widely regarded as the most advanced market for electric vehicles (EVs) in the world thanks to generous government incentives. Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrids accounted for over 80% of sales in September 2020 and the national parliament has set 2025 as the target year for the country to go fully electric.

This is why electric vehicle data from Norway if often used as an indicator for the prediction which models and manufacturers will excel in a world in which electric vehicles become the norm. There is also no local player, which means the Norwegian EV market is not skewed like some other countries like France where the Renault Zoe reigns supreme.

As I mentioned in my previous SA article on Tesla (TSLA), its Model 3 always performs poorly in Europe during the first month

EARTH’s vast oceans look particularly spectacular when glimpsed through a flurry of wispy clouds from the International Space Station as it orbits 400 kilometres above the planet. This collaborative shot taken from Cupola, the ISS’s observation module, was created by Chicago-based photographer Roland Miller and Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli.

The module’s seven windows allow astronauts to observe spacewalks and other operations outside the ISS. They are also ideal for enjoying panoramic views of Earth and space. Cupola’s outlook, especially from its 80-centimetre central window, is a massive improvement on the small portholes astronauts used before the module was installed in 2010.

For over a year now, I’ve been pounding on the table about Crocs (NASDAQ:CROX) , saying that the “ugly” sandal maker is a having a seminal moment in fashion and that the brand is on the cusp of becoming the next big thing in the footwear world. Indeed, I’ve even said that CROX stock is turning into the next Nike (NYSE:NKE).

Ostensibly, it’s a bold claim. And it has naturally been met with tons of skepticism.

But guess what?

It’s also been an enormously profitable claim to date. CROX stock currently trades at decade highs, and is up 63% over the past year, 145% over the past two years, and 390% over the past three
