PEERS & MARKETS

The week 23 to 27 August was characterised by falls on most European markets  (Milan -0.3%, London +0.1%, Paris -0.5%, Frankfurt -0.9%).
The negative data on the US economy stoked fears about the economic recovery, which were partially allayed by Friday’s figures on growth in the US GDP in the second quarter of 2010 (+1.6%, instead of the expected 1.3%) and the declarations by the president of the Federal Reserve on measures to support the economy.
Most sectors of the economy performed poorly (Auto -0.7%, Industrial -1.5%, Tech -2.6%).
European tyre shares outperformed the DJ Stoxx Auto with Pirelli at  +0.3% (€5.275).
