Market and company news
The Bank of Russia notes the acceleration of GDP growth rates. It is expected that the pre-crisis level in a number of sectors may be reached in the first half of the year, but some sectors are recovering more slowly. At the same time, inflation accelerated last month. Data on price increases for May will be published in a week, and if inflation is more than 5.5% on an annualized basis, then the key rate may increase. However, the likelihood that the regulator will keep it at the current level still prevails. The stock market demonstrates positive dynamics, despite the risks associated with the acceleration of price increases. In addition, if the economy has entered a phase of inflationary growth, then first of all, shares of cyclical companies will rise in price. Yesterday, the Moscow Exchange index for the first time reached the bottom of our forecast range for the year. We expect the Russian market to move to a sideways trend or a moderate correction in the near future, but in general it will remain dependent on the situation on external commodity and stock markets.
