Int'l Macro Vision: Sector Synopsis

Int'l Equity Strategy Global equities were on a tear in early January, continuing the trend that began in 4Q2019. As global equities started to get extended, the coronavirus outbreak hit in mid-January, leading to some market setbacks and deterioration in market indicators as global growth expectations were dialed-in. Despite this deterioration, what was important to us was that there were not any breakdowns. Even the areas of the market most-directly affected by the outbreak -- China (MSCI China) and EM (MSCI EM) -- were not breaking down. To us, this was a reassuring sign of underlying stre...

Int'l Macro Vision: Global Ex-U.S. Equity Strategy

In our January 31 International Compass we presented a case for an incrementally improving overall global outlook, with the caveat that market bottoms tend to be a process that develops over many weeks. Since the end of January, not a lot has changed to alter our views. We remain constructive overall and continue to believe that global equities (MSCI ACWI) are going through a bottoming process. Opportunities exist but Sector leadership is mixed. In our February International Strategy, we explore various themes which lead to our overall constructive outlook, along with areas of the market wher...

Analyse court terme - INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES AG : La reprise est une consolidation.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 19,500 € prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 15,900 €, puis 14,800 €. Le franchissement de 20,832 € remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES AG : Rising consolidation.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at €19.500. The next target is at €15.900, then €14.800. Passing €20.832 would question the continuation of the fall.

Analyse court terme - INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES AG : Les prix baissent.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Les prix baissent à nouveau, mais le mouvement est devenu hésitant. Le prochain support est à 15,900 €. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 20,832 €.

Item 4: We recommend to oppose the discharge of the Supervisory Board due to the insufficient attendance of two Supervisory Board members in financial year 2018/2019. Item 5: KPMG, Munich, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year. While we have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees, we note that KPMG has audited the Company since the financial year 1999 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of KPMG as auditor.
