As for the individual stocks of the Piazza Affari, in the main segment luxury shines with Moncler (+ 8.8%), energy with Prysmian (+ 8.6%) and cars with Iveco Group (+ 7%). At the bottom of the Ftse Mib they end Saipem (-13%) struggling with a complicated capital increase, Enel (-5.5%) and Tim (-4.5%) which are weighed down more than the other securities by the crisis of Palazzo Chigi which could put them in “stand by” “several hot dossiers (starting from the one on the single network).
