The pharmaceutical industry subcontractor has lifted the veil on its ambitions for the next three years, as well as structural changes, announcing in the wake of the entry into office of its new boss Pierre-Alain Ruffieux as of next month.

Pharmaceutical giant Roche (-2.6%) failed to meet analysts’ expectations for the first nine months of the year, despite a pleasant surprise from the small Diagnostics unit.

The two other heavyweights in the index Novartis (-1.0%) and Nestlé (-0.9%) offered only very relative resistance.

The red lantern went to the volatile AMS (-3.3%), without particular indication.
Sika (-1.5%) appeared in the tail wagon, after having seen its recommendation downgraded by two notches to “reduce” by Baader Helvea, who in the process raised the price target. According to the Geneva broker, the jump of more than a third of the price since December is too fast and too high, justifying the profit taking.

On the enlarged market, the manufacturer of composite materials Gurit (growth + 1.4%) reported increased sales over the first nine months of 2020, despite the crisis, thanks to its strong presence in the wind sector.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange also ended sharply lower on Thursday. “Endless procrastination on both sides – Democrat and Republican – is unlikely to reach a deal until November 3,” CMC Markets’ Michael Hewson said in his morning commentary. .
