ODDO : Painful and selective but not deadly

The impact of the pandemic will be strong: support measures will not be enough to avert a sharp increase in risk. However, current valuations (P/BV = 0.36x) underestimate the sector's resilience.

Analyse court terme - UBS GROUP : 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 14,325 CHF prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 12,033 CHF, puis 11,541 CHF. Le franchissement de 16,110 CHF remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Matthieu DRIOL

Short term view - UBS GROUP : 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 CHF 14.325. The next target is at CHF 12.033, then CHF 11.541. Passing CHF 16.110 would question the continuation of the fall.

ODDO : Payment of dividends postponed

>ECB postpones but does not officially cancel dividend payment for 2019 - The ECB has asked banks to suspend dividend payments until at least 1 October 2020. This move concerns dividends for 2019 and 2020. It has also asked banks to refrain from proceeding with share buybacks. We think that the ECB is also aiming at the quarterly provisioning of the 2020 dividends.These recommendations do not apply to dividends already paid. Instead, the ECB is calling for an ame...

ODDO BHF Small & MIDCAP MORNING NEWS - 03/12/2020

While Data Respons is a quality target in our view, financial value creation is pre1eempted by the high price tag (16.5x EBIT), which implies a low ROIC (5.4%e in 2021e). Moreover, after this deal, exposure to the automotive, aerospace and oil sectors – the sectors hardest hit by the coronavirus – remains high (around 63% of revenues), while debt rises to a huge level for the sector. As a result, we lower our estimates for the existing scope and our target price (€ 35 vs € 59), and dow...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 03/30/2020

While the direct impact of COVID-19 is likely to be relatively limited, the consequences of the financial crisis will be more significant (lower equity markets, losses on fixed-income products). But solvency margins are set to remain robust. The sell-off in the sector (-29% YTD) looks overdone and we have upgraded our ratings on Allianz and Scor. We have cut our rating to Reduce vs Neutral on Hannover Re on valuation grounds (sizeable premium to the rest of the sector). AXA remains ou...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 03/12/2020

Investors are desperately trying to determine a floor for the valuation of indices. Until this is achieved the risk/opportunity ratio cannot be calculated and volatility will persist. We therefore understand that the winning “Buy the Dip” mantra since March 2009 is no longer a magic utterance. We propose four scenarios (weak shock, moderate shock, strong shock, and crisis) and five methods to calculate the Stoxx 600 target. In short, if you believe the epidemic will be rapidly brought...
