Luxottica is World’s top eyeglasses producer. It is Italian and will enjoy great advantages as the EURO goes down. A large share of LUX’s revenues are in USD, most of its expenses are EURO.

Ray-ban brand belongs to Luxottica. Did Tom Cruise know that?

Brands owned by Luxottica: Ray-Ban, Oakley, Persol, Oliver Peoples, Vogue Eyewear, Arnette, Revo, Luxottica, Sferoflex, Killer Loop, Mosley Tribes, and Eye Safety Systems

Designer lines made by Luxottica: Chanel, Prada, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, D&G, Bvlgari, Tiffany & Co., Versace, Versus, Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, DKNY, Brooks Brothers, Paul Smith Spectacles, and Anne Klein.

Luxottica’s numbers are OK:


There is growth compared to last year’s global disasters.

LUX is a bit expensive at current P/E around 28, but forecasted P/E under 18 for next year looks more reasonable.

Dividend Yield seems to be around 2%, but as oten happens, Yahoo finanace and Google finanance don’t seen to agree on that number:

For my June investment:

I bought 80 LUX shares, spending EUR 18.3269 each, for a total amount of EUR 1.466

I did it a few days before June, because dividends were paid on May 27.
