After a first part in substantial parity, the negative start of Wall Street made the stock market list slide red. There were two factors that penalized the lists on both sides of the Atlantic: the tumultuous advance of Omicron and the fear that the Federal Reserve would tighten the monetary policy strings too hard (in 2022 Goldman Sachs expects four tightenings).
On the Ftse Mib, which stopped at 27,353.71 points (-0.96%), the negative performances of Nexi (-4.77%), STMicroelectronics (-4.53%) and DiaSorin stand out (-4.33%).
While waiting for the Management Committee of the Deposit Protection Fund (Fitd) to evaluate the offers to acquire the stake in Carige (+ 0.97%), BPER Banca, which according to rumors would have improved the offer, ended with a + 0.34%. In the sector, weak Banco BPM (-0.25%) and UniCredit (-0.18%) while Intesa Sanpaolo closed with a + 0.47%.
The combination of Pirelli (+ 1.46%) and Leonardo (+ 1.86%) also performed well. To push the latter is the decision of the executive to allocate 2 billion for the Tempest program, the new fighter-bomber launched in 2018 by Italy, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
Waiting for Brunello Cucinelli’s numbers (-4.52%), Salvatore Ferragamo shares lost 8.83% in the wake of a report in which UBS analysts recommend selling the stock.
The BTP-Bund spread was also in red, which fell by almost 3% to 136 basis points. (in collaboration with money.it)
