Morningstar | Potential Huawei Supply Issues May Aid Others in the CSP Equipment and Networking Spaces

We are maintaining our fair value estimates for leading communication service providers, such as Nokia and Ericsson, despite the addition of Huawei to the U.S. Entity List, effectively banning U.S. firms from supplying into Huawei, the dominant provider of CSP equipment, software, and services. The Chinese firm is also one of the largest sellers of switches, routers, and wireless technology for enterprises, campuses, and data centers as well as an enterprise security vendor. We are assuming that Huawei's addition to the list is more of a short-term leverage play by the U.S. for tariff negotiat...

Europe in focus The U.S. dollar continues to grind marginally higher, and EM equities have suffered as a result. Meanwhile, RS for the MSCI EAFE index is bottoming when compared to the MSCI EM index, largely due to outperformance in Europe.

TELAB.LM ERIC. increases its risk exposure and slightly lowers to Neutral

TELAB.LM ERIC. (SE), a company active in the Telecommunications Equipment industry, now shows a lower overall rating. The independent financial analyst theScreener confirms the fundamental rating of 3 out of 4 stars. However, the market behaviour deterioration triggered a risk requalification, which can be thus described as moderately risky. theScreener believes that increased risk justifies the general evaluation downgrade to Neutral. As of the analysis date May 3, 2019, the closing price was SEK 92.00 and its expected value was estimated at SEK 90.19.

5G Roll Outs, IPR Agreements, and Restructuring Efforts Bolstering Ericsson; Raising FVE to SEK 81

No-moat Ericsson's first quarter ended with 7% year-over-year organic sales growth (13% in total), driven by North American operators starting to roll out commercial 5G services. Ericsson announced higher intellectual property rights (IPR) agreements signed in the quarter, which increased the gross margin and operating profiles beyond our expectations. With a stronger growth expectation for radio networks and 5G equipment build outs coupled with Ericsson's improvements on the margin front, we ar...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 04/17/2019

The M&A option that KBC is considering in Hungary is, in our view, illuminating as regards the M&A/dividend possibilities offered by a portion of the capital. Our estimates show that this scenario is of limited benefit to the shareholder and bear out our Neutral recommendation on the stock (unchanged target price of € 75.0). Cf. report published today. - ...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 03/01/2019

Unlike CEO pay, the average remuneration paid to the chairs of the boards of directors of the large cap companies covered by ODDO BHF increased by 4.9% between 2013 and 2017. The disparities between companies stem mainly from national contexts and widely differing perceptions of the role of the board chair depending on the countries, though for certain stocks the ownership structure and sector situation may have an influence. Cf. Report published last evening. - ...

Contrairement aux rémunérations de CEO, la moyenne des sommes versées aux présidents de conseil d’administration dans les large caps suivies chez Oddo BHF a connu une hausse de 4.9% entre 2013 et 2017. Les disparités entre les sociétés relèvent principalement de contextes nationaux et d’une perception du rôle de président(e) très différents selon les pays, même si la situation actionnariale et sectorielle peut, pour certaines valeurs, avoir une influence.

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 02/22/2019

The tragedy which struck the Brumadinho complex (state of Minas Gerais in Brazil) belonging to mining giant Vale has radically changed the fundamentals underpinning supply and demand in the iron ore market. Accordingly we are revising up our price scenario for 2019-2021 by 15% on average and are adopting a Neutral recommendation on Rio Tinto (vs Reduce) which has the greatest exposure. We are sticking with our Buy recommendation on ArcelorMittal. - ...

Ericsson, March 27 2019

In general, Ericsson is in compliance with the Swedish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting. Under ITEM 8.2, discharge of the board of directors & CEO is sought. ECGS notes that the Company's CEO (Mr. Börje Ekholm) and CFO (Mr. Carl Mellander) became defendants in a US lawsuit alleging violations of US securities laws. As long as the results of this investigation are unclear, ECGS is unwilling to grant discharge.  Accordingly, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE. Under ITEM 10, the nomination committee seeks approval of the remuneration of the  boa...

Short term view - ERICSSON (Stockholm) : The movement can go on.

The background trend is clearly bullish. The MACD is positive, it confirms that trend. The movement can go on. The following targets are at SEK 88.50 and SEK 95.10. The trend would be invalidated below the support at SEK 68.60.

Jérôme VINERIER

Medium term view - ERICSSON (Stockholm) : Prices are making further progress.

The trend is bullish. Prices are making further progress. The targets are at SEK 88.85 and then SEK 104.00. The break of SEK 62.60 would endanger the trend.

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse moyen terme - ERICSSON (Stockholm) : La progression des cours se poursuit.

La tendance est haussière. La progression des cours se poursuit. Les objectifs sont à 88,85 SEK puis 104,00 SEK. La rupture de 62,60 SEK mettrait la tendance en danger.

Valérie GASTALDY

Analyse court terme - ERICSSON (Stockholm) : La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la hausse.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la hausse. Les cours progressent encore, mais le mouvement montre moins de puissance. La prochaine résistance est à 81,40 SEK. La rupture du support à 68,60 SEK invaliderait cette tendance.
