PEERS & MARKETS

Fears about the stability of the euro continue to affect the trend in financial markets in the week 11-15 July (Milan -3.1%. London –2.5%, Paris -4.8%, Frankfurt -2.5%).

Pirelli bucked the trend of the Milan stock exchange and the Stoxx Auto (+6.6pp; +2.6pp) ending the week at €7.66, a rise of 3.7%. The shares, which have recorded growth of 26.5% since the start of the year, were also sustained by the Goldman Sachs upgrade of its TP to €11.0.  High pricing power and continuous improvement of its mix characterise the Pirelli equity story, according to the broker. The market is not ignoring potential growth in Pirelli’s profitability, predicting a group ebit margin of 9.9% in 2011 and 12.7% in 2013.
