Markets looking for a restart, but the stagflation nightmare weighs on.  Ten billion in dividends are raining on Piazza Affari

Stock exchanges are trying to restart after a volatile week, spiced up by concern over runaway inflation that has called for central banks to tighten monetary policies to curb prices, while growth is threatened by a number of factors – from Chinese lockdowns to war in Ukraine – which brings the specter of stagflation ever closer. The balance of the last eighth was overall negative, with the Eurostoxx 50 representing European equities down by 1.2%. All in all, Milan held up, registering a fractional increase (+ 0.2%). On the other hand, the situation of Wall Street is difficult, which on Friday closed a volatile section with several cases of collapses: Tesla, but also Walmart and the large-scale distribution sector (-20% in the week) with concern for the trend of the first economy to the world: episodes that seem to say that the market does not believe in the “soft landing” promised by the Fed president, Jerome Powell.

The resumption of trading is characterized by a very particular situation for Piazza Affari, where the 10 billion dividends arriving in the session of 23 May alone are almost reached. The detachment of the coupon affects 60 listed companies (for a total value of 9.8 billion), of which 19 are on the main list. The most generous check of this round will be that of Generali which will pay shareholders almost 1.7 billion euros, Eni and Intesa Sanpaolo instead will stop at just over 1.5 billion euros but in both cases it is the only balance on 2021 accounts after the down payment already distributed in autumn. A substantial amount for Tenaris (330 million but always for the balance), for Inwit (approximately 300 million) and for A2a (more than 280 million) while outside the Ftse Mib the total coupons of UnipolSai. According to the Radiocor agency, as regards the dividend yield, i.e. the ratio between the value of the coupon to be detached on Monday and the price of the share on the stock exchange, Azimut is 6.4% while Generali and Unipol travel around 6% compared to the last closing. Also considering the advance payments, Intesa SanPaolo would be well above 7%, Eni and Banca Generali in the area of ​​6%. UnipolSai stands out from the basket of big companies (7.1%). For a dividend yield above 8% it is necessary to look at the Star segment with Cairo Communication and Equita Group (for the latter considering the down payment and balance). In detail, here are the dividends for Monday: A2a, Amplifon, Atlantia, Azimut, Banca Generali, Bper, Diasorin, Eni, Finecobank, Generali, Interpump, Intesa Sanpaolo, Inwit, Italgas, Moncler, Pirelli, Recordati, Tenaris and Unipol. After the detachment of 23 May, the next ‘rich’ appointment for coupons will be that of 20 June with approximately 1.65 billion euros in distribution and two protagonists, Poste and Snam, who will pay the dividend balance of 530 million each. On the other hand, Enel’s coupon balance was forwarded in July, which will put 1.9 billion into the pockets of its shareholders.
