Παρά τις ήπιες διακυμάνσεις και τα μικτά πρόσημα που κατέγραφαν στο μεγαλύτερο μέρος της συνεδρίασης τα ευρωπαϊκά χρηματιστήρια, η ανακοίνωση των θέσεων εργασίας στις ΗΠΑ ώθησε την πλειοψηφία των ευρωπαϊκών δεικτών προς υψηλότερα επίπεδα.

Οι προσδοκίες του βρετανικού κοινού για τον πληθωρισμό αυξήθηκαν τον Ιανουάριο, ενδεχομένως λόγω των ανησυχιών για τις διαταραχές στη ναυσιπλοΐα στην Ερυθρά Θάλασσα, έδειξε έρευνα που δημοσίευσε την Παρασκευή η αμερικανική τράπεζα Citi.

Οι προσδοκίες του κοινού για τον πληθωρισμό στα επόμενα πέντε έως δέκα χρόνια αυξήθηκαν στο 3,6% τον Ιανουάριο από 3,4% τον Δεκέμβριο, το υψηλότερο ποσοστό τους από τον Απρίλιο του 2023, σύμφωνα με την έρευνα, η οποία διεξάγεται από την εταιρεία διαδικτυακών δημοσκοπήσεων YouGov.(περισσότερα εδώ)

Aukett Swanke said that it returned to profitability in fiscal 2023 on doubled revenue and that it expects to post record revenue for the current fiscal year. The provider of architectural and interior-design services said Friday that for the year ended Sep. 30 it made a small pretax profit–before acquisition-related exceptional items–without providing a specific figure. For fiscal 2022, it posted a trading loss–one of its preferred metrics–of 72,000 pounds ($91,749.60). Revenue for the year rose to GBP14 million compared with GBP7.1 million, it said. “We are pleased to have returned the group to full year operational profitability after several years of losses. Looking ahead to the current financial year, we expect the enlarged group to report record revenues, with the second half performance as usual stronger than the first half,” Chief Executive Nick Clark said.

Wizz Air Holdings carried 14% more passengers in January but saw a fall in its load factor due in part to the reallocation of capacity in response to current geopolitical events. The eastern Europe-focused budget airline said Friday that it carried 4.7 million passengers in January compared with 4.1 million for the same month a year earlier. Load factor–a measure of how full a plane is–was 82% in January compared with 86% a year earlier. Operations into Tel Aviv from London, Budapest, Sofia, Bucharest, Krakow, and Rome will start from March, Wizz Air said.

Danske Bank launched a new 5.5 billion Danish kroner ($802.1 million) share buyback after reporting in-line fourth-quarter earnings amid strong credit quality and negligible impairments. The Copenhagen-based bank posted on Friday a net profit of DKK5.77 billion and net interest income of DKK9.13 billion. A company-compiled consensus had seen net profit at DKK5.77 billion with net interest income of DKK9.3 billion. The bank declared a final dividend of DKK7.5, bringing the total 2023 dividend to DKK14.50. The bank said it expects 2024 net profit of between DKK20 billion and DKK22 billion, versus the DKK21.26 billion reported for 2023, while loan impairment charges are subject to an elevated level of geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty. Total income is expected to grow this year, driven by higher core income and continued efforts to drive commercial momentum, and income from trading and insurance activities will be subject to financial market conditions, it added. Operating expenses in 2024 are seen at DKK26 billion to DKK26.5 billion, reflecting increased investments in line with its financial targets for 2026 and continued focus on cost management. The outlook includes nonrecurring items of around DKK600 million, it said. Danske Bank’s common equity Tier 1 ratio–a key measure of financial strength–rose to 18.8% from 17.8% a year earlier.

Spain’s CaixaBank raised its 2024 profitability target after fourth-quarter net profit rose on higher net interest income. The Spanish bank said Friday that it now expects its return on tangible equity–a key profitability metric for banks–to be above 15% in 2024, up from its previous target of above 12%. The lender also raised its 2022-24 investor returns target to around EUR12 billion, previously guided at EUR9 billion. For the fourth quarter, the bank’s net profit grew 76% from the same period a year earlier to 1.16 billion euros ($1.26 billion). Analysts had forecast net profit of EUR1.21 billion, according to a consensus provided by the bank. Net interest income stood at EUR2.75 billion, up 40% from a year earlier, but slightly missing the EUR2.76 billion expected by analysts. Net interest income, a key driver of revenue for retail banks such as CaixaBank, is the difference between how much a bank earns on clients’ loans and how much it pays clients for their deposits. CaixaBank’s common equity Tier 1 ratio–a measure of a bank’s resilience– stood at 12.4% in December. The lender declared a 2023 dividend of 39 European cents, up from 23.06 cents in 2022. It plans to launch a new share buyback program in the first half of 2024, CaixaBank said.

Mercedes-Benz Group said that last year’s cash-flow from industrial operations exceeded both its guidance and market expectations, thanks to lower capital requirements and a favorable cash generation. The German luxury carmaker said late Thursday that free-cash-flow from its industrial business for the full year amounted to 11.3 billion euros ($12.28 billion), beating consensus expectations of EUR9.9 billion. The company had guided for an industrial free cash flow in line with the prior year level, when it came to EUR8.13 billion. Mercedes-Benz attributed the better-than-expected cash flow to lower working capital levels and a favorable cash conversion rate in the industrial business. Full results for 2023, along with fourth-quarter earnings figures, are expected to be published on Feb. 22, the company said.

Vodacom Group reported an increase in third-quarter revenue, driven by the acquisition of Vodafone Egypt along with strong customer growth. The South Africa-based telecommunications company said Friday that for the quarter ended Dec. 31, revenue rose 27% on year to 38.92 billion South African rand ($2.09 billion), compared with ZAR30.705 billion for the same period a year earlier. Service revenue–a closely watched metric in the telecom sector–increased to ZAR31.12 billion from ZAR24.0 billion. Within this, South Africa service revenue grew 1.9% to ZAR15.69 billion and Egypt service revenue increased 29% in local currency to ZAR7.94 billion. In International, service revenue rose 11% to ZAR7.72 billion. The group said that financial services revenue increased 31% to ZAR3.4 billion with $98.2 billion transacted through its mobile money platforms in the quarter. Across the group, including Safaricom, customers reached 200 million for the first time with more than 75 million of its customers using a financial service, Vodacom said. “During the third quarter Vodacom Group celebrated a number of key milestones including Vodacom Mozambique’s 20-year anniversary. Having operated in Mozambique for two decades, its anniversary highlights the contribution Vodacom has made to digital and financial inclusion in the country and more broadly across our footprint,” Chief Executive Officer Shameel Joosub said.
