BUZZ-EssilorLuxottica in CAC 40's top risers after guidance hike

Fri 30th July, 2021 8:42am
** Shares in EssilorLuxottica  ESLX.PA  rises around 2% as
the Ray-Ban maker upgraded its guidance, citing a sales rebound
in H1
    ** The group now sees FY revenue to grow "around mid-single
digit" at constant exchange rates versus 2019  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2P60C8
    ** It also expects its adj. operating profit margin to be
higher than in 2019, as revenue came at EUR 4.71 bln ($5.60 bln)
in Q2 
    ** However, although FY guidance is lifted and points to
ongoing demand strength in H2, "EBIT view seems more
circumspect," Jefferies flags
    ** Bryan Garnier says the previous adj. EBIT objective was
perceived as too conservative by many analysts given the growing
contribution from synergies
    ** The stock, which is up over 23% YTD, outperforms France's
CAC 40  .FCHI  index

($1 = 0.8410 euros)
