PEERS & MARKETS

Main European stock markets were mixed in the week from the 9th to 13th July 2012 (Milan -0.1%, +0.1% in London, Frankfurt +2.3%, +0.4% Paris, Madrid -1.1%). After a good start thanks to the manufacturing sector data in the United Kingdom and Italy (both growing in May despite negative expectations), the publication of the minutes of the Fed last meeting reduced the expectations of a new round of Quantitative Easing with impact on markets.

The most affected by the newsflow were Bank and Industrial stocks with a decline respectively of 0.6% and 0.7% (Stoxx European reference).

Pirelli ended the week at € 7,905, down by 4.4% with a daily average of 4.7 million shares traded. The stock was affected by profit taking after an year-to-date performance of +21.5% (+30.6 pp vs FTSE MIB) and by the particular moment of automotive sector (uncertainties about demand in Europe).

The TP consensus on Pirelli amounted to 10.7€ with 87% of coverage with a Buy rating and a 35.4% upside to the market price (13/7).

PEERS & MARKETS

A sharp rise for Pirelli in the week 4 to 8 April 2011, returning to a three-year high of €6.5 (+3.8%, about 2pp higher than the Milan blue chip index). This price trend was supported by upgrades by Mediobanca (Overweight and TP at €7.2 from €6.9), Societe Generale (Neutral at €6.9 from €6.25) and Morgan Stanley (Overweight at €9 from Underweight at €6.6).
For Morgan Stanley in particular, Pirelli is the only share in the Auto & Parts sector to offer a high upside on its results: growth of 20% in EPS is forecast in 2011, and 21% in 2012.
The trend on the major international markets was also broadly positive (Milan +1.9%, London +0.8%, Paris +0.2%, Frankfurt +0.5%).
The BCE decision to raise the official interest rate by 25 points (to 1.25%) had a particularly positive effect on bank shares, which recorded growth of 2.2% over the week, and on the Euro, which reached a 15-month high of 1.4426 against the dollar. Industrial (Stoxx –1.4%) and Auto (-0.7%) shares, in contrast, were weak. 
It should be noted that the continuing geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and Africa meant that oil reached a 32-month high during the week (with Brent at 124 dollars a barrel).
