3. Airbnb

Airbnb on the downswing

The US company Airbnb had a very interesting IPO just last year. At that time, the very first share price was quoted at more than twice the issue price. Since mid-March, however, the company has been on a downward trend. The quarterly figures, which were recently published, disappointed both investors and analysts. Furthermore, announced updates were not published.

On the other hand, the statistics of customer behavior speak for the company. Bookings on average are becoming more expensive but also longer. 🛏️

4. Thyssen Krupp

Thyssen Krupp suffers from falling steel prices

The MDAX group Thyssen Krupp is in free fall at the moment. This is due to falling metal prices, which are making life difficult for the group. Recently there was an upward trend in the steel industry due to rising steel prices. Expectations of the end of the pandemic and an imminent economic upturn have provided a boost for weeks. 🏗️

However, analysts at Deutsche Bank are positive. They leave their rating on the company at BUY with a target price of 17 EURO.

5. PepsiCo

PepsiCo exceeds expectations again

The company PepsiCo has outperformed the industry in the last three months thanks to a surprise trend. The company beat analysts' estimates for revenue and earnings for the ninth consecutive quarter with its first quarterly results for 2021.
