Piazza Affari in red, the oil sector weighs despite crude oil

Flat until the halfway point, Piazza Affari finished in red after the uncertain start of Wall Street. The fears of the operators are always the same, the trend of infections and that of consumer prices: the former could lead to new closings, the latter to a tightening of monetary conditions.

On the Ftse Mib, which closed in the red by 0.59% at 27,661.82 points, the negative performance of the energy sector stocks stand out (-2.82% of Tenaris, -1.29% of Eni and -1.04 % of Saipem) despite the fact that during the second part Brent returned to rise above 80 dollars (80.75, + 0.6%, at the close of the EU stock exchanges).

Negative day also for Bper Banca (-2.51%), UniCredit (-1.07%) and Intesa Sanpaolo (-0.6%) while Mediobanca went against the trend compared to the reference sector, closing with a +0, 14%. To push Piazzetta Cuccia is the rumor according to which Leonardo Del Vecchio would be willing to ask the ECB for the green light to exceed 20% of the capital.

Minus 0.88% for Assicurazioni Generali, despite the continuation of shopping by Francesco Gaetano Caltagirone, which rose to 7.25% of the share capital.

In the sector of public utility companies, a decrease of 0.37% for Enel and a plus sign for the combination formed by Hera (+ 1.65%) and Italgas (+ 0.83%). The news coming from the health front pushed DiaSorin (+ 0.41%).

The BTP-Bund spread is in red, down to 119 basis points. (in collaboration with money.it)
