European stock exchanges open in green

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) The European stock markets are heading for a higher opening on Monday, now that it is clear that Joe Biden will be the new president of the US.

IG anticipates an opening win of 206 points for the German DAX, an plus of 84 points for the French CAC 40 and an increase of 72 points for the British FTSE 100.

Stock markets in Europe ended mainly lower on Friday.

Investors were nervous about the uncertainty surrounding the US election results. Meanwhile, Biden has received the most votes in the election, but Donald has not yet resigned himself to his defeat.

German industrial production was higher in September, but the increase on a monthly basis was less than expected.

Wall Street opens in green on Monday, according to US futures.

Wall Street is closed on Friday. Investors were nervous towards the weekend due to the uncertainty surrounding the American election results.

The important US jobs report received less attention than usual on Friday because of the elections, as did the Federal Reserve’s less exciting interest rate decision the day before. However, the job growth of 638,000 in October was strong and points to a continued recovery in the US labor market.

The pace of the recovery is slowing down and is mainly supported by the private sector, concluded market analyst Philip Marey of Rabobank.

Marey pointed to the growth in the number of jobs in the private sector by 903,000, while 268,000 jobs in the government were lost, according to Marey, largely due to the loss of people who had been called in before the election.

Marey also nuanced the unemployment rate in October from 6.9 percent this time. “That picture is compiled on the basis of household surveys and apparently shows a relatively high response from people who say they have a job or are not unemployed.”

The oil price fell sharply on Friday. A barrel of West Texas Intermediate became 4.3 percent cheaper at $ 37.14 at settlement. On a weekly basis, a profit of about 4 percent remained.

Company news

In the third quarter, Uber Technologies was still suffering from the corona crisis, with meal delivery again achieving higher sales than the traditional taxi service. The American company reported this on Thursday after the exchange. The loss on an annual basis was almost stable, but slightly higher than the market predicted, while turnover was slightly better than expected. The share rose 7.0 percent.

GoPro posted a significantly higher turnover in the third quarter, while a small profit remained below the line. The number of users increased rapidly. The stock was 15.7 percent higher on Friday.

Groupon posted a smaller loss in the quarter than a year earlier, but still felt the pain of the corona pandemic. The share fell 0.4 percent.

Marriott International’s results came under significant pressure in the quarter, but the company nonetheless performed better than expected. The hotel chain did not issue an outlook due to “numerous uncertainties” regarding the corona crisis. The share rose 3.0 percent.

CVS Health has again increased the outlook for the full year in the third quarter results, as it did after the publication of the half-year results. The share rose 5.48 percent.

Zillow gained 14.0 percent after the online real estate services provider reported its biggest ever profit.

Mylan maintained sales in the third quarter, while earnings performance improved. The stock fell 3.2 percent.

Peloton Interactive lost 0.9 percent. Although the manufacturer of interactive fitness equipment is benefiting from the corona pandemic, the company warned of more supply problems.

Booking Holdings reported lower earnings in the third quarter as it missed a normally lucrative summer season due to the corona pandemic. The share of the online travel agency nevertheless rose 0.9 percent.
