Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 | Economy

On Tuesday, investors were rewarding the results of the two mining companies Antofagasta and BHP Billiton. Chilean Antofagasta shares rose 4.6 percent to London's 998 pence, while British BHP stocks rose 3.7 percent to 1416 pence. The two values ​​led to the winner list in the British selection index "Footsie".
The Swiss Stock Exchange is closing on Tuesday. Many investors thought the lower courses were a favorable entry level, traders said. However, they did not want to be fully engaged before the annual meeting of the Notenbundes in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the second half of the week. From the meeting, they hope for future monetary policy.
The SMI increased by 0.6 percent to 8936 points. On Monday he had closed by 0.1 per cent higher after initial weakness. Uncertainty about US economic policy and the smoldering North Korean crisis had dampened investment readiness.
Whether the initial profits could be held, however, depend heavily on whether to buy after-sales, said a trader. "If, however, the follow-up purchases should fail, this could motivate the bears to start a new attack during the further weeks," said a dealer.
The increase was driven primarily by the risk-tolerant and heavyweight pharmaceuticals Novartis and Roche, with a gain of 0.7 and 0.9 percent. With the shares of the pharmaceutical supplier Lonza, the food giant Nestle, the fragrance and flavor maker Givaudan and the telecom company Swisscom, further defensive values ​​were in demand. They won one to two percent.
The shares of Credit Suisse and UBS banks were up 0.2% and 0.7%, respectively. The insurance values ​​tended to be friendly. Swiss Re gained 0.6 percent.
The shares of cyclical companies also showed a stronger majority. The shares of the luxury goods manufacturer Richemont increased by 1.2 percent and the Swatch watch group's shares were traded 0.5 percent higher. In July, watch exports rose by 3.6 percent. This is somewhat less strong than the Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB) with 5.4 percent expected. But it is the third consecutive month with rising exports and, according to the Directorate-General's assessment, shows that recovery is continuing.
In the broad market, Orior's shares stood out with a gain of 4.7 percent. The meat processor worked better than expected in the first half year. The Liechtenstein-based VP Bank and the screw trading company Bossard also performed better than expected and expressed a positive outlook for the stock.
On the other hand, Huber + Suhner's papers broke by five percent after submission of the interim balance sheet. In the cable specialist, profitability could not keep up with the strong growth. Therefore, analysts want to review their estimates.
A look at this tweet shows that the sentiment mood is good all over Europe.

The Swiss Market Index (SMI) increases by 0.8 per cent to 8955 points immediately after the opening of the stock exchange.
Swatch (+0.7 per cent) and Richemont (+0.9 per cent) both increase, but roughly equal to the total market. Swiss watch exports continued to recover in July, although the growth rate remained slightly behind the last two months.

Investors would speculate on a sustained recovery in the sale of watches, it said in the trade, the positive data should be thereby largely already priced.

With a plus of 2.3 per cent Straumann fall. For the title of the dental implant manufacturer, positive analyst comments are available according to the figures presented in the previous week and the announcement of a takeover. At Kepler Cheuvreux it is expected that Straumann will remain in double-digit growth over the next ten years thanks to the acquisition of ClearCorrect and will increase the rating to "Hold". At Jefferies the profit estimates and the price target were increased after the takeover.
Asia's stock exchanges have shown themselves friendly on Tuesday after the political chaos in Washington and the North Korean crisis initially did not burden the courses any further. The best was in Hong Kong, where the Hang-Seng index rose by nearly 1 percent in late trading. Overall, however, the trade was thin.
Support in uncertain times came from the yen, which slowed somewhat. This makes it easier for Japanese companies to export. The Nikkei 225 ended up barely changing at 19 383.84 points. On the previous days, the courses had clearly yielded.

The North Korean crisis moved somewhat into the background. Also from the trump government came no new badges. Investors are now focusing on the central bank conference in Jackson Hole, which runs from Thursday to Saturday. Among them are the heads of the US central bank and the European Central Bank, Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi.
Against this backdrop, the stock markets in Australia and South Korea also showed their friendly side and gained a good 0.4 per cent in the late Tuesdays. The Chinese CSI 300, which lists the most important values ​​of the continent, increased similarly.
The Swiss Market Index (SMI) increases by 0.2 percent in the pre-market, which is calculated by Julius Baer. In yesterday's trading, the lead index rose by 0.1 percent higher at 8884 meters.

The Nikkei rose by 0.1 percent to 19,406 points. The broader topix stood at 1597 counters, which is an increase of 0.1 percent. Stock Strategist Isao Kubo of Nissay Asset Management said the mood was nervous. One reason is the conflict with North Korea. On Monday the southern neighbor and the US had begun their military exercises.
Investors, however, also fell back because leading banknotes come together in Jackson Hole in the US state of Wyoming. For example, Fed CEO Janet Yellen will give a speech. An appearance by ECB President Mario Draghi is planned for Friday. According to insiders, however, he will not announce a change in the price.
The dollar could grow on the foreign exchange markets. Compared to the Japanese currency, it cost 109.26 yen. The euro was priced at 1.1803 dollars.
