Market and company news
The market has shown a sharp decline. The daily drop in the RTS index became the maximum since April. No significant news and statistics are released on the local market, therefore quotes follow the dynamics of external sites. Their fall is due to the news of the spread of a more aggressive form of coronavirus in the UK and the tightening of quarantine because of this in a number of European countries. However, the decline did not escalate into panic. In the US, by the evening, the market partially entered the green zone, as is often the case with bad news in other parts of the world. We believe that the information about the beginning of vaccination outweighs the negative and the global stock markets will receive support from the American market.
AFK Sistema (AFKS 27.55, -2.63), spec. purchase, purpose: 32 rubles. We are counting on a rebound after a correction of almost 20% in two weeks. The start of coronavirus vaccination is a positive driver.
We expect mixed dynamics. We believe that the market will win back part of the fall. Forecast for the USD / RUB pair: range 73.50-74.50. The reference point for the Moscow Exchange index: a corridor of 3200-3250 points.
