USA: Estee Lauder raises earnings guidance
It has been announced that Estee Lauder Cosmetics Inc, has raised full-year earnings-per-share guidance for 2014.

Estee Lauder President and CEO Fabrizio Freda commented: “We had a terrific quarter, with all engines of growth working well. The peculiarity of this quarter was that we are growing in every single region, in every single brand, in every single category…despite [softer markets in the] U.S. and China”.
