Major European financial markets were down in the week from 2 to 5 April 2013 (Milan -0.6%, London -2.5%, Frankfurt -1.8%, -1.8% Paris, Madrid -1.5%). After the first positive trading day, stock markets were impacted by lower than expected U.S. economic macroeconomic data (fewer payrolls in March, ISM Services index in March to the lowest level in seven months: 54.4p vs. 55.5p expected) and by the view expressed by ECB President Draghi according to which recovery in Europe is going to be slow and gradual.

In line with the market also the European Auto&Parts Sector (-1.9%) following weak car registrations data in Germany: new car sales in March were down 17% compared to last year (-10% yoy in February 2013).

Pirelli ended the week above parity (+0.4%) at € 8.22. Limited trade in the sessions after the holidays: the average daily trading volume was about 1.9 million units.

PEERS & MARKETS

The week from March 25 to 28 was a tough one for the main European stock exchanges: Milan -4.4%, London +0.3%, -1% Paris, Frankfurt -1.5%, -4.9% Madrid. Markets continued to be impacted by Cyprus financial crisis and by the political stalemate in Italy with a possible consequent risk of a Public Debt rating downgrade.

Auto & Parts sector stocks was also down (-2.5% Stoxx Auto) following the warnings on first quarter 2013 trend and the confirmation of the sector negative outlook by Moody’s: the agency has estimated a Light Vehicle demand in Europe down 5% in 2013.

Pirelli ended the week at € 8,185 (+0.9%) in contrast to the sector and the reference market with a daily average traded volumes of approximately 2.6 million pieces. The stock has benefited from the upgrade to Buy (from Hold) by Société Générale: according to the broker, after a period of transition in 2013 given the current market conditions, Pirelli is well positioned for a rebound in 2014.
