LVMH's Revenue Jumps on Restocking (WSJ): France's LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (MC.FR) Tuesday fueled hopes for a swift rebound in the luxury-goods sector after it posted an 11% surge in first-quarter revenue that beat expectations.

Givaudan Sales Up 9.2 Percent (WWD): Givaudan reported its first-quarter sales increased 9.2 percent year-over-year to 1.07 billion Swiss francs, or $1.01 billion at average exchange. The Swiss firm’s fragrances and flavors divisions both contributed to growth.

Talbots' profit shows proof of turn, shares rise (Reuters): Women's clothing retailer Talbots Inc (TLB.N) posted a much better-than-expected quarterly profit and forecast higher sales as its turnaround efforts take hold, sending its shares up nearly 5 percent.
