    By Leo Sun - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: COH, FNP, KORS

    A University of Minnesota marketing study has concluded that women buy high end accessories not so much to signify economic status, but as a signal to potential rivals.

    Although they aren't always considered as defensive as major consumer-staple stocks, such as Coca-Cola or Philip Morris, the stocks that cater to the high-end markets have proven to be resilient during tough economic times, while also excelling in a bustling economy. I've long felt that either either Tiffany (NYSE: TIF) or Coach (NYSE: COH) would be great buyout candidates.

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: COH, FNP, KORS

    Just in April, NY Magazine fashion blog The Cut called Coach (NYSE: COH) more "mass-market" than its own Reed Krakoff brand, noting that Krakoff's decidedly pricey and high end wares brand didn't fit with Coach anymore. The article made it sound like mass-market was a dirty word.
