Wall Street manages to end the week on a high note thanks to tech

The New York Stock Exchange, which had started the hesitant session, managed to end the week in the green for the first time in three weeks on Friday, driven by a return of the big names in tech.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) gained 1.34% to 27,173.96 points. The Nasdaq, with strong technological coloring, advanced 2.26% to 10,913.56 points and the broader S&P 500 index gained 1.60% to 3,298.48 points.

The day before, Wall Street had timidly ended up. The DJIA had advanced 0.20% and the Nasdaq 0.37%.

“The market which had been under pressure for some time was buoyed by the search for bargains on Friday,” said Art Hogan of National Holding Corporation.

The stocks ended “higher, supported by the technology sector which has tempered recent headwinds,” said analysts at Wells Fargo. “But concerns about the resurgence of coronavirus cases”, especially in Europe, “still cloud the market,” they continued.

In addition, the prospects for an agreement between Democrats and Republicans in the United States for a new fiscal stimulus “remain weak”, they warned.

Despite these concerns, the move on Wall Street, confirmed in the second part of the session, also reflected the fact that almost “the whole month of September was down, wiping out many of the excesses” accumulated since the rebound started in March, claimed Adam Sarhan of 50 Park Investment. This analyst believes that the market should continue its positive momentum as it approaches the end of the quarter.

The increase in titles Apple (+ 3.75%), Amazon (+ 2.49%), FaceBook (+ 2.12%), Microsoft (+ 2.28%) and Tesla (+ 5.04%) allowed Nasdaq to end the week with solid gains.

The shares of companies that are on the rise with social distancing have also jumped such as Zoom (teleconference), by 6.78%, or the manufacturer of connected exercise bikes, Peloton (+ 10.35%).

Boeing was boosted (+ 6.85% to 156.05 dollars) by the news of a possible return to service in Europe “by the end of the year” of the Boeing 737 MAX, grounded since March 2019 after two fatal accidents.

The titles of cruise passengers, under water since the onset of the epidemic, raised their heads, helped by recommendations from analysts. Carnival gained 9.7%, Norwegian Cruise Line 13.7% and Royal Caribbean 7.7%.

On the bond market, the 10-year rate on US debt fell to 0.6544%, from 0.6659% Thursday night.

Irish airline Ryanair announced on Wednesday that it plans to open a new French base in Beauvais, in the Oise, from December, despite the novel coronavirus pandemic and the drop in traffic.

«We are delighted to announce an investment of $ 200 million for Ryanair’s fourth French base at Paris-Beauvais airport. This development will create more than 2,300 direct and indirect jobs», Assures Jason McGuinness, commercial director of Ryanair. Ryanair already has bases in Marseille, Bordeaux and Toulouse.

Jason McGuinness adds that Paris-Beauvais airport continues to offer “competitive airport charges, which is a way to increase traffic and open new lines for Ryanair’s fourth French base“. The new base will allow Ryanair to connect the Paris region to 13 European countries.

Reduction of thefts

The company “low cost»Announced last week to further reduce its flights for October, the month during which it will run at 40% of its capacity because of the impact on demand of travel restrictions decided by governments to stem the pandemic.

Travel restrictions often criticized by the boss of the group Michael O’Leary, like the quarantine required in the United Kingdom on return from several countries, and which threaten to worsen as the epidemic spreads.

Faced with this context, Ryanair announced a restructuring plan which involves the elimination of 3,000 jobs. The Ryanair group, which also includes the companies Buzz, Lauda and Malta Air, claimed 149 million passengers a year before the pandemic and some 17,000 employees.

The Paris Bourse up 1.24%

The Paris Bourse was clearly green at the start of Wednesday’s session, gaining 1.24% in the wake of the rebound in US markets.

At 9:30 a.m., the CAC 40 index rose 59.28 points to 4,832.12 points. On Tuesday, it had failed to bounce back, losing 0.40%, its fifth consecutive decline.

Wall Street managed to restart on Tuesday thanks to technology stocks, the Nasdaq taking up 1.71%.

In addition, the American House of Representatives approved a budget agreement with the White House and the Republicans to avoid the “shutdown”, that is to say the drying up of government funding, on September 30.

“There is no great enthusiasm” at the idea of ​​wiping out the majority of losses conceded on Monday, where the ACC had fallen by 3.74%, points out however Tangi Le Liboux, analyst of the broker Aurel BGC.

All the more so as the barometers of private sector activity fell again in September in France. The composite flash index of aggregate activity fell to 48.5 points from 51.6 points in August, with a figure below 50 indicating a contraction in activity.

This is the sign of “new disturbances relating to the Covid-19 pandemic”, specifies the IHS Markit firm which calculates this barometer, so far on a series of four consecutive increases.

European countries have for several days been forced to take measures to try to stem or limit the comeback of the Covid-19 epidemic, which continues to weigh on the markets.

Local and partial lockdowns have started in areas in Spain or the UK, and English Prime Minister Boris Johnson presented restrictive measures on Tuesday. Pubs and restaurants must close at 10 p.m., and teleworking is again encouraged.

Faced with this, “the growing perception of the market is that central banks have already done their utmost and that in the event of a more acute health crisis, it is difficult to see what lever could be used to support economic activity” worry the economists from Saxo Bank.

– Tech takes color –

The standoff continued between Suez (+ 2.07% to 15.25 euros) and Veolia (+ 0.63% to 18.40 euros) on the attempted buyout of the first by the second. Suez denounced “the social destruction” that the operation would represent from his point of view, leading to the dismissal of 10,000 people around the world. Veolia disputed these figures, saying it was also ready to discuss its offer with Engie, including the price.

As in the United States, technology stocks stood out, like STMicroelectronics (+ 3.04% to 26.06 euros) and Atos (+ 1.91% to 69.46 euros).

The French number two in the retirement homes and private clinics sector Orpea climbed 3.01% to 97.96 euros after the publication of its results and the announcement of the acquisition of 50% of the fourth national operator of nursing homes. retirement in Ireland, Brindley Healthcare.

With US $ 2.3 million, Samsung expands the production of refrigerators in Cañuelas | Business Opening

The South Korean company Samsung announced this Tuesday, with the presence of President Alberto Fernández, that will expand the production of refrigerators in the plant that its Argentine partner Visuar has in the Cañuelas Industrial Park, Buenos Aires province.

With a US $ 2.3 million investment, the company plans to add a new line of refrigerators to expand its production by 22%, 70,000 to 85,000 or 90,000 units per year, and to incorporate new models with inverter technology of lower capacity and more accessible in price. To do this, Visuar will gradually incorporate 100 employees.

“At the plant we only produce Inverter refrigerators, which allow more than 30% energy savings versus traditional cyclicals. We make models from 320 to 380 liters, but now we are going to incorporate one of 300 liters, also Inverter and with Twin Cooling, by which freezer and refrigerator work independently. Still cyclicals capture 70% of the market. We aim to launch a more accessible model, to be competitive in price and so that more consumers can purchase an Inverter model”, Diego Puhl, Samsung Home Line director, explained, a The chronicler. In the remaining 30% of the market, 70% are Inverter and 30%, No Frost. The model will cost between $ 60,000 and $ 65,000, compared to 45,000 for a traditional cyclical, but between 15% and 20% lower than other higher-liter inverters.

At that plant, Visuar also manufactures next-generation washing machines, microwaves and vacuum cleaners for Samsung.

So far this year, the sale of refrigerators decreased by 14% in units until August, compared to 2019, being a category less affected than others by the pandemic, according to sector data. In fact, the demand for household appliances in general fell by around 24% in the same period. Last year, the sale of white goods (refrigerators, washing machines and kitchens) had decreased by 6.5%, compared to a general decrease of 24% in the total sector.

“Our sales evolve in a similar way to the market. After having shortages since May, due to the factories being closed for two months, since August there is a certain recovery in demand of refrigerators. A month ago, we estimated a drop of 9% to 10% for all of 2020; the quarantine did not affect the seasonality of the refrigerator, because more are sold in summer. By 2021, we had projected that the market would grow from 3% to 5%, but the measures announced today could boost consumption more and the improvement could be greater, ”explained Puhl.

After touring the plant, Alberto Fernández announced a line of credit to acquire domestic appliances and another for productive investment; lThe former aim to encourage the purchase of national products from eight categories, including refrigerators, at prices agreed with manufacturers, financed by Banco Nación for 36 months and a fixed rate of 15%. Among the products, there are 35 models of refrigerators, 22 of washing machines, nine of kitchens, nine of hot water tanks, seven of water heaters, four of electric hot water tanks, one of dishwashers and 144 of fans.

In addition to that new line of credit, These products also participate in the Now 12 and 18 programs. Thus, it is expected to reactivate the demand for refrigerators and other household appliances that have a high national share in their production.

“Financing helps a lot to purchase refrigerators, with which we estimate a positive impact on the market, more with 36-month loans”Puhl commented. In addition to the national model of 300 liters Inverter, Samsung will launch, at the end of the year, the high-end model Family Hub, imported from Mexico, with Side by Side doors, with touch screen and Internet connectivity, than cost less than $ 300,000 to the public. “With the quarantine, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen; they changed the uses and customs. The refrigerator transforms the kitchen into an entertainment center, with touch screen, Spotify and speaker to listen to music or send it from the cell phone; interior camera to know, from the smartphone, what is missing in the refrigerator when shopping, among other characteristics ”, said Puhl.

Also, Samsung plans to add more models of washing machines in the plant that Visuar has on the same property in Cañuelas, where it makes front and top loading Inverter and non-Inverter models. “We are also going to expand production with models that are more accessible in price and we also plan to bring others with greater kilage and connectivity,” he anticipated.

The manager also highlighted the importance of productive credits announced for companies, that contemplate fixed installments at a rate of 24% or 22%, for 36 months, with Banco Nación. “It is important that there are these types of facilities, because companies have not received this impulse to invest for a long time; it is very difficult to expand with own investment “, he warned.

Visuar began in September 2017 to manufacture refrigerators for Samsung in Cañuelas, the year in which it allocated $ 1 billion at that time to install a new 30,000 m2 plant of Inverter refrigerators. In 2012, Visuar had started to manufacture, in another plant of the same property, washing machines, to which he later incorporated vacuum cleaners and microwaves.
