PEERS & MARKETS

The main European stock markets were down in the week from the 9th to the 13th of April 2012 (Milan -5.8%, London -0.9%, Frankfurt -3.0%, Paris -3.8%). Trading was affected by the renewed worries around the sovereign debt of Southern European countries and the global economic trend (Chinese GDP in the first quarter of the year and US consumer sentiment data were worse than expected).

Auto & Parts stocks (-3.8% in the week) were affected by weak European car registration data, showing a 9% decline over last year.

Pirelli stock showed a different trend, closing the week flat at 8.77€, with an average daily volume of 4.3 million shares.

PEERS & MARKETS

The main European stock markets were down in the week from the 26th to the 30th of March, 2012 (Milan -3.1%, London -1.5%, Frankfurt -0.7%, Paris -1.5%, Madrid -3.3%). The decision to increase the European rescue fund to € 800 bln (partially expected) was not enough to balance the renewed worries surrounding the Eurozone sovereign debt.

Pirelli closes the week at €8.92 (+1.1%, with daily average volumes of 4.4 mln), outperforming the Auto & Parts index (-0.8%). In the week, broker Société Générale upped the valuation of the stock, setting the Price Target at €10.2 (from €8.20), while confirming the “Buy” rating. According to the analyst, FY 2011 results provided support to the positioning of Pirelli in the Premium segment and in Latin America.

The first quarter of 2012 marks a positive performance for Pirelli, with the stock up 37.1%, better than the European Auto & Parts index (27.8%) and Milan (+5.9%).

PEERS & MARKETS

European stock markets were down in the week from 19th to 23d March 2012 (-3.5% Milan, London -1.9%, -2.3% Frankfurt, Paris -3.3%). Market sentiment was affected by the renewed fears of a weakening Chinese economy.

An increase in fuel prices operated by the government in Beijing (the second in the last 6 weeks) plus a warning on estimates of the auto market by Chinese producers’ association (probably less than 5% growth), weighted on the Auto&Parts sector, which was down by 4.7% in Europe.

Pirelli closed the week at € 8.83 (-1.8%) with an average daily traded volumes of approximately 5 million. Goldman Sachs (Buy, € 14.3) and Citi (Buy, TP € 10.5 from € 8.5) renewed the positive view on the stock indicating Pirelli as one of the few companies in the sector with room for upside in spite of the recent rally. The consensus target price now stands at € 9.85 with 91% of coverage with positive recommendations.
