ODDO : What can we learn from the publication of Q1 results?

Insurers have registered the initial impacts of the crisis in Q1 but we note the resilience of operating profitability, whilst solvency margins, albeit down, remain solid. The effects of the crisis are likely to impact Q2 results, but not significantly the outlook for 2021-2022 results. The sector is currently trading at attractive valuation multiples in view of its fundamentals. - >Q1 operating profit in line with forecasts - Insurers have reported solid results, give...

Swiss Re : Results impacted by the crisis, but the balance sheet remains solid

>Q1 net income set to be impacted by the crisis - Swiss Re will report its Q1 2020 results on Thursday 30 April before trading. Note that it only reports key figures from its P&L in Q1 and Q3.

The various natural catastrophes (notably in Australia) are set to have largely used up the natural catastrophe budget in Q1. Net profit in Q1...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 04/22/2020

The rise in share prices from the low points raises questions. The arguments in favour, an unprecedented response from states and central banks, the probable reaching of the pandemic peak and the beginning of the lifting of lockdown measures, are known. But a slew of unknown elements (the profits mass post-normalisation, possible epidemic rebound) persist and the macro low point has not yet been reached. A modelling of the time to reach the trough carried out on the last 5 bear marke...

Mais nombre d’inconnues (masse des profits post normalisation, absence de rebond épidémique) restent entières et le point bas macro n’a pas encore été atteint.
