Αρνητικά πρόσημα επικράτησαν σήμερα για τα περισσότερα ευρωπαϊκά χρηματιστήρια, εν μέσω ανησυχιών για την αύξηση του γεωπολιτικού ρίσκου στην Μέση Ανατολή, μικτών εταιρικών νέων, καθώς και της αβεβαιότητας που επικρατεί στην οικονομία λόγω υψηλών επιτοκίων.

Ένα πρόβλημα στο σύστημα διέκοψε τη διαπραγμάτευση εκατοντάδων μετοχών στο Χρηματιστήριο του Λονδίνου. Η διακοπή λειτουργίας επηρέασε κυρίως μετοχές μικρής κεφαλαιοποίησης, περιλαμβανομένου γνωστών εταιρειών, όπως η Asos Plc, η Deliveroo Plc και η Metro Bank Holdings Plc, σύμφωνα με στοιχεία που συγκέντρωσε το Bloomberg. Η διακοπή ξεκίνησε περίπου στις 15:10 τοπική ώρα. “Αναλαμβάνουμε άμεση ανάλυση και θα παράσχουμε περαιτέρω ενημέρωση”, όπως ανέφερε η London Stock Exchange Group Plc στην ιστοσελίδα της. Μόνο οι μετοχές του δείκτη FTSE 100, του FTSE 250 και του διεθνούς orderbook ήταν διαθέσιμες για διαπραγμάτευση, ανέφερε. Το 2019, ο LSE είχε μια διακοπή που διήρκεσε περίπου μία ώρα και 40 λεπτά. Επίσης, τον Ιούνιο του 2018, η διαπραγμάτευση καθυστέρησε κατά μία ώρα λόγω προβλήματος λογισμικού.

Η Ρωσία θα μπορούσε να χάσει τον στόχο της για τα έσοδα του 2024 και να αναγκαστεί να αυξήσει τους φόρους στις επιχειρήσεις, εάν το ρούβλι αποδειχθεί ισχυρότερο από ό,τι αναμενόταν στον προϋπολογισμό και οι αισιόδοξες οικονομικές υποθέσεις πέσουν έξω, προειδοποίησαν οι αναλυτές, καθώς η Μόσχα δαπανά περισσότερα για τον πόλεμό της στην Ουκρανία.(περισσότερα εδώ)

Mondi said that third-quarter underlying Ebitda fell, dragged by a reduced forestry fair value gain, and that it expects the period’s subdued demand and price declines in heavy-duty kraft paper to continue through the fourth quarter. The FTSE 100 paper-and-packaging company said Thursday that challenging market conditions continued as expected in light of the continuing weak macro-economic environment. Lower average selling prices were largely mitigated by lower input costs and tight fixed-cost control, it said. The company said underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization–a metric that strips out exceptional and other one-off items–came to 261 million euros ($275.1 million) compared with EUR450 million the year before and EUR329 million in the second quarter. Mondi said that in corrugated packaging, container-board prices were stable and that its order books improving, whereas flexible packaging saw further price and volume declines in kraft paper. Uncoated fine paper pricing continued to decline in Europe on the continuing weakness in demand, it said. The company said the forestry fair value gain–accounted for within uncoated fine paper–was EUR14 million compared with EUR72 million in the second quarter.

Rentokil Initial reported a rise in third-quarter revenue at constant exchange rates but flagged a weaker-than-expected performance in North America, while it backed its full-year guidance on group level. The pest-control, hygiene and workwear services provider said Thursday that revenue at constant exchange rates rose to 1.40 billion pounds ($1.70 billion) in the quarter, up 60% from the GBP878 million it generated in the same quarter in 2022. At actual exchange rates, revenue for the quarter was GBP1.38 billion pounds compared with GBP901.3 million, a 53% rise from a year ago. The growth reflected gains from mergers and acquisition, including Terminix, of which Rentokil said the integration plan is progressing well and that it remains firmly on course to meet the full-year pretax net cost synergy target of $60 million. Organically, revenue grew 4.3%, the company said. For the full-year, the FTSE 100-listed company said it expects its regional performance in North America to be marginally below previous expectation due to near-term market uncertainty. As a result, Rentokil now targets a regional adjusted operating margin between 18.5% and 19.0%, down from 19.5%. At group level, it continues to target 16.5%.

Dunelm Group has reporter higher revenue, driven by strong sales volume in both stores and digital segments supporting its expansion and digitalization strategy. The U.K. soft-furnishing retailer said on Thursday that for the first quarter ended Sept. 30 revenue was 389.6 million pounds ($473 million) compared with GBP356.7 million for the same period a year earlier. Digital sales rose up 2 percentage points year-on-year to 35% while the gross margin improved by 120 basis points and was in line with the board’s full-year guidance for a 100 basis points increase year-on-year. “There remains a significant opportunity for Dunelm to take further market share and we are excited about the progress we are making against our plans, through targeted and thoughtful investment, in order to seize the compelling opportunities ahead of us. We remain very confident about our prospects for continuing to drive sustainable growth,” Chief Executive Officer Nick Wilkinson said.

Hargreaves Lansdown posted a smaller-than-expected rise in revenue for the first-quarter fiscal 2024, as lower share-dealing volumes driven by softer investor confidence were offset by net interest margin growth. The retail-investment platform posted revenue of 183.8 million pounds ($223.1 million) for the three months ended Sept. 30. That is up from the GBP162.9 million it reported in the comparable period a year earlier but below the GBP186.6 million estimated by analysts polled by Visible Alpha. The London-listed group on Thursday reported around GBP600 million in net new business due to moderated flows across the market, it said. This compares with the GBP700 million recorded in the same quarter the previous year and with consensus expectations of GBP1.1 billion. Assets under administration at the end of the period stood at GBP134.8 billion, slightly down from GBP134.0 billion three months prior, the London listed group said. Analysts had expected a rise to GBP135.6 billion. “Clients are looking to invest more in cash than risk-based investments,” Chief Executive Dan Olley said.

Deliveroo said gross transaction value rose in the third quarter, driven by an increase in value per order and improving trends, and backed its full-year guidance. The U.K. food-delivery company said Thursday that third quarter GTV–the total amount of transactions it processes on its platform–increased to 1.70 billion pounds ($2.06 billion) from a restated GBP1.64 billion, rising 5% on a constant-currency basis. Orders declined 1% on year to GBP69.7 million, but this was offset by on-year growth in GTV per order of 5% on a constant-currency basis. Deliveroo said it was seeing continued growth momentum in the U.K. and Ireland, and improvements in its international business. Revenue rose to GBP487 million from GBP481 million. The company said that it continues to expects full-year GTV growth of a lower single-digit percentage and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of GBP60 million-GBP80 million. “We continue to deliver strong performance in [the U.K. and Ireland] and I’m encouraged by the improving growth trends in key International markets. My confidence in our ability to drive growth and deliver on our goals for profitability and sustainable cash flow generation has never been stronger,” Chief Executive Will Shu said.

London Stock Exchange Group has reported an 8% rise in total income, excluding recoveries, on strong, broad-based growth across the business, and backed its full-year total income guidance. The stock-exchange and financial-information company said Thursday that total income excluding recoveries–a key metric for the company–was 1.97 billion pounds ($2.39 billion) compared with GBP1.905 billion for the comparative period a year earlier. Recoveries mainly relate to fees for third-party content, such as exchange data, that is distributed directly to customers. LSEG said that it expects its 2023 total income excluding recoveries to grow toward the upper end of the previously guided range of 6% to 8%. It also backed its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization margin target of around 48% and still sees capital expenditure of around GBP750 million.

Germany’s Merck KGaA expects to return to organic sales growth next year after a broadly flat performance in 2023, helped by reduced Covid-19 headwinds and recovering demand for semiconductor materials. The German life-sciences and electronics group said Thursday that it still expects organic sales for 2023 to range from a 2% fall to a 2% rise, resulting in net sales of between 20.5 billion and 21.9 billion euros ($21.60 billion-$23.08 billion). In 2024, the decline in Covid-19-related sales in Merck’s life-sciences segment will be smaller than in 2023, it said. Inventory reductions by key customers of the company’s process-solutions segment should end early next year, paving the way for a pick-up in sales, Merck said. The market for semiconductor materials is expected to recover incrementally in 2024, Merck said. Moreover, the company anticipates growth in its healthcare segment to normalize in line with medium-term aspirations. Merck said its medium-term growth targets to 2025 remain unchanged, and that it expects to continue to grow beyond 2025.

Telia Co. raised its full-year guidance after third-quarter adjusted earnings beat forecasts as its telecommunications business offset weakness in television and media. The Swedish telecommunications operator said Thursday its adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization–the company’s preferred metric, which strips out exceptional and other one-off items–rose 9.5% to 8.47 billion Swedish kronor ($768.7 million) from SEK7.96 billion expected in a FactSet poll. Third-quarter net profit rose to SEK1.79 billion from SEK1.71 billion a year earlier and compared with the SEK1.69 billion that was expected. Revenue rose 4.3% to SEK22.0 billion, against SEK22.02 billion expected. “Telia’s growth accelerated to levels not seen in many years, with momentum in our Telco operations more than compensating for the weak advertising market,” Chief Executive Allison Kirkby said. “Looking ahead…we can now upgrade our Ebitda outlook to low-single digits this year, versus our earlier outlook of flat to low-single digit growth.” Telia now sees capital expenditure excluding fees to be around SEK13.5 billion in 2023, from SEK13.0 billion-SEK14.0 billion previously. The structural part of operational free cash flow is now estimated to be around SEK7.5 billion from SEK7.0 billion-SEK9.0 billion. Telia still expects like-for-like 2023 service revenue to grow in the low single digits.

Schroders said its assets under management fell over the third quarter of 2023, missing consensus expectations which had pencilled in a rise. The FTSE 100 asset manager said Thursday that its assets under management stood at 724.3 billion pounds ($879.3 billion) at Sept. 30, down from GBP726.1 billion three months prior. Consensus compiled by Visible Alpha and based on three analyst estimates had expected the group to close the quarter with GBP729.7 billion in assets under management.

Nestle posted a lower-than-expected organic sales growth in the first nine months of the year and confirmed its outlook. The Swiss food and beverage giant said sales stood at 68.83 billion Swiss francs ($76.57 billion) in the period from CHF69.13 billion a year earlier. Sales grew 7.8% organically, missing a company-compiled consensus estimate of 8.1%. Organic growth was driven by pricing at 8.4%, while real internal growth–the sum of volume and mix–came in line with expectations at minus 0.6%. “Growth was driven by pricing as we continued to navigate historic inflation levels. The recovery of our volume and mix is underway,” Chief Executive Mark Schneider said. Nestle said it expects real internal growth to turn positive in the second half. The company confirmed its full-year guidance for organic sales growth of between 7% and 8%, and underlying trading operating profit margin between 17% and 17.5%. Underlying earnings per share in constant currency are expected to increase between 6% and 10%.

Pernod Ricard posted lower sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 as American and Chinese consumers are drinking less than last year. The French drinks group said Thursday that sales came in at 3.04 billion euros ($3.20 billion) in the three months to the end of September, down 8% on the year in reported terms and 2% organically. Sales in Europe grew 1% organically to EUR855 million, slumped 9% to EUR858 million in the Americas. Asia and the rest of the world accounted for the lion’s share of sales at EUR1.33 billion. “As expected we experienced a soft start to the year, yet I am encouraged we have largely offset declines in U.S. and China this quarter, thanks to our good performance in other markets,” said Chief Executive Alexandre Ricard. Ricard said he expects the group will deliver broad-based and diversified organic sales growth in fiscal 2024.

German exchange operator Deutsche Boerse said on Wednesday that it posted a 7% rise in third-quarter net profit, a slightly worse result than analysts had expected, but it raised its outlook for the full year. Net profit attributable to shareholders was 400.3 million euros ($421.68 million), up from 373.3 million euros a year ago, the company said. Analysts had expected a profit increase of around 14%.
