ROME — Luxottica Group SpA said Monday profits increased 8 percent in the second quarter, despite the U.S. dollar’s decline against the euro. Luxottica, whose largest single market by sales is the U.S., said despite currency pressures it’s “well on track” to reach its full-year objectives.
Luxottica, which owns the Ray-Ban and Oakley brands, said net income rose to 162.1 million euros, or $233.2 million, in the three months ended June 30, compared with profits of 150.1 million euros, or $191.5 million, in the same period a year earlier. Earnings per share rose to 0.35 euros, or 50 cents, from 0.33 euros, or 42 cents.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
