US stock exchanges are recovering their initial losses in trading. Concerns about stagflation still dominate the market, but failures will also be used to re-enter the market. Sentiment was weighed down by a warning about retailer’s earnings Target and a larger-than-expected rate hike in Australia. Target has reduced its losses from over 6 percent initially to 3.6 percent now. The retailer warned against a decline in earnings because, inter alia, higher discounts are needed when selling goods. Retailers see this as a clear sign of falling consumer spending. That view weighs heavily on other industry stocks: Walmart and Costco lost 2.1 percent and 1.4 percent, respectively, while Amazon lost 2.2 percent. The sector tops the loser list with a 2.0 percent discount. Countering the sector trend, Kohl’s grew 8.1 percent. The company is in advanced sales talks. Peloton Interactive fell by 1.1 percent. The company also changes its chief financial officer just four months after the appointment of a new president. Apple gains 0.8 percent. The American tech group wants to offer American customers an installment payment option.

Concerns about inflation and interest rates weighed on prices again. The ECB is expected to take the first steps to tighten monetary policy on Thursday. In Australia, the central bank unexpectedly raised interest rates significantly while signaling that a further tightening was imminent. The muffler also came from incoming German orders. UK retail sales were also weak. In the US, Target, the eighth largest retailer, issued a profit warning. Retail stocks lost 0.8% and interest-bearing technology companies – 1.2%. Casino Guichard lost 4.1 percent. There have been reports that the supermarket chain is struggling to find potential buyers for its renewable energy subsidiary. Consumption equities were also under pressure on the DAX as high inflation destroys consumer budgets. Adidas dropped 1.2 percent, stock flies out of the Stoxx 50. Glencore, who was promoted, lost “only” 0.3 percent. Other commodity stocks also enjoyed stronger demand: the commodities index topped the sectors with a positive 1.3%. SGL Carbon rose by about 11 percent thanks to better outlook. Mediaset Espana (+ 2.0%) benefited from MFE-Mediaforeurope (-2.1%) raising its bid to take over all remaining shares. SAS fell by almost 14 percent. The Swedish government has declared that it is no longer willing to continue capital injections.

Fresenius CEO: The sale of FMC is by no means a finalized transaction

For the healthcare group Fresenius, the partial or even total sale of its dialysis subsidiary Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) is by no means a finalized transaction. This was explained by the CEO of Fresenius SE & Co KGaA, Stephan Sturm, in an interview with the staff newspaper. It’s about making the best use of FMC’s development opportunities – under our roof or handing them over to new hands who may even be better at it than we do, ”says Sturm. However, such a sale would have to be of benefit to all interested parties and should therefore be carefully considered.
