  • Handelsblatt: Investors pin hopes on business-friendly conservatives

    The financial daily reports that investors are already buying up Greek stocks as they view the electoral results to date as the prelude of a victory for conservative-liberal New Democracy.

    Ο πρόεδρος της ΝΔ Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης (Δ), μιλάει σε συνέντευξη που παραχώρησε στο κεντρικό δελτίο ειδήσεων του τηλεοπτικού σταθμού «ANT1» και τον δημοσιογράφο Νίκο Χατζηνικολάου, την Δευτέρα 3 Ιουνίου 2019. ΑΠΕ-ΜΠΕ/ΓΡΑΦΕΙΟ ΤΥΠΟΥ ΝΔ/ΠΑΠΑΜΗΤΣΟΣ ΔΗΜΗΤΡΗΣ

    Just days after main opposition New Democracy won sweeping victories against ruling SYRIZA in both European Parliament and local elections, the German financial daily Handelsblatt is projecting a positive shift in investors’ stance toward the Greek economy based on the perception that a conservative government will be more business-friendly.

    That expectation appeared to be demonstrated by the drop in Greek bonds’ spreads and the rally on the Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX).

    Investors buying Greek stocks

    Noting the upcoming 7 July parliamentary elections, the paper reports that investors are already buying up Greek stocks as they view the electoral results to date as the prelude of a victory for conservative-liberal New Democracy.

    The report notes that in the aftermath of the European and local elections the ATHEX broke its recent 830 point ceiling to reach 835 points, a 12-month high.

    “The stock market party is a reaction to the result of the 26 May European Parliament election. Opposition New Democracy managed to win the contest by an unexpectedly large margin of around [nearly] ten percentage points…,” the analysis stated.

    “After the great failure in the European Parliament election, [PM Alexis] Tsipras is trying to quickly ply forward and is expediting the general election, which will now be held on 7 July instead of the original plan to hold them in October,” the paper’s correspondent wrote.

    “The chances of the climate changing until then are minimal. The opinion polls point to a clear victory for opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis,” the report concluded.
