AstraZeneca Sells Two Almirall Drugs For 233 Million

AstraZeneca gets rid of two drugs purchased from Almirall seven years ago. The British pharmaceutical company has sold the drugs Eklira and Duaklir to Covis for 233 million euros to be marketed worldwide. Both drugs, indicated for COPD, require for their administration a device that the Spanish company also sold to AstraZeneca: Genuair. The deal will close before the end of the year.

The transaction itself has no economic impact for Almirall, but the same agreements signed in the past are maintained. For this reason, the Spanish pharmaceutical company will continue to receive payments for regulatory or commercial milestones as well as royalties from the sales of products. In addition, it can be expected that Covis will give a boost to the sales of these drugs, since in 2018 it began to buy part of the respiratory area from AstraZeneca, an operation that continues with the purchase announced yesterday.

During the past year, the drugs sold 143 million dollars, according to AstraZeneca. The Spanish stock market has positively valued the operation for Almirall. In a context of generalized increases, the pharmaceutical scale almost 3%.

The respiratory area was one of the pillars of the Spanish company at the beginning of the last decade. However, the company decided to specialize in the area of ​​medical dermatology and one of the major decisions made as a result of the change in strategy was the sale of this business. In 2014 they signed the transfer with AstraZeneca in exchange for 1,500 million euros.

Since then, the company has been developing its new portfolio, which is now beginning to see the light of day in the markets. The new batch, with Klisyri and Seysara at the head, are called to replace the sales harvested by Aczone, whose commercial path begins to deteriorate due to the arrival of generic drugs.

Another good news about these drugs is that Seysara will be manufactured in Spain. The new medical dermatology antibiotic will be made in Barcelona to supply the United States market. Almirall already has FDA authorization to develop it in Sant Andreu de la Barca.

Box after Caelum
Just over a month ago, AstraZeneca decided to undertake the purchase of the pharmaceutical company Caelum to strengthen its portfolio of orphan drugs. In that operation, the British multinational spent some 500 million dollars, an amount that it managed to partially recover yesterday with the sale of a part of the respiratory business it owns.


Mercadona Recovers One Of Its Successes For Breakfast

Mercadona continues to expand its product catalog with one of the most traditional breakfasts in Spain, churros. Thus, the Valencian company brings a gluten-free product to homes that can be made in a matter of minutes and with ease.

The company has included in its novelties section a pack of eight frozen gluten-free and lactose-free churros from the Hacendado brand. The 150-gram package is priced at 2.60 euros and is now available in physical stores and the company’s online catalog.

Perfect to be enjoyed with a cup of hot chocolate (it is the presentation suggested by Mercadona on the package), these churros can be made easily at home. There are two ways to prepare them:

-If you have a fryer , the way to do them is to put them directly, without defrosting them and preferably with the oil at 180 degrees for about three minutes.

-They can also be made in the pan , without defrosting them. To do this, add the necessary oil to cover the churros, wait for it to heat up and once the oil is hot, add the churros and brown them to taste, approximately for about three minutes.

Mercadona warns its customers that, once defrosted, the churros cannot be refrozen. In addition, it is convenient to do them in batches “so as not to alter the temperature of the frying oil”.

Who is behind Mercadona’s churros
Although these churros are marketed under the brand name ‘Hacendado’, their manufacture corresponds to the company Horno Sant Honoret, which on its website is defined as a “completely certified gluten-free” workshop.

The company, based in Madrid, is one of the many others that has established itself as a Mercadona supplier , and beyond its churros it offers gluten-free products such as different types of bread, pizza bases, waffles, cookies and other custom-made products. the client’s.

This is the case of these gluten-free churros, which have returned to Mercadona after several months. As with other products, the firm removes them from the catalog to later reintroduce them. That is why now lovers of this traditional tran breakfast are (again) in luck.

BBVA Increases The Investment Of Its Social Plan By 33%

BBVA will invest 550 million euros from 2021 to 2025 in social inclusion projects. The entity increases its allocation to this strategy by almost 33%, compared to the 414.5 million it allocated in the previous plan. The bank headed by Carlos Torres thus reinforces the ‘S’ of ESG (the criteria of Environmental, Social and Governance, or Medio Mmbiente, Social y Gobernanza, in Spanish). On the one hand, investors increasingly take these criteria into account when making decisions, while, on the other, bank managers have been linking their bonuses to the achievement of objectives in this regard for several years.

According to the CEO of BBVA, Onur Genç, this social plan is the “most ambitious” that the entity has implemented to date . “Sustainability is a strategic priority for BBVA. We want to contribute to the fight against climate change and inclusive growth,” he said.

The plan is based on three focuses of action. The first of them will work to reduce inequality and promote entrepreneurship. Within this pillar, the bank will focus primarily on supporting entrepreneurs through the BBVA Microfinance Foundation, allocating 7,000 million euros to finance 4.5 million vulnerable entrepreneurs through small loans.

The second pillar will focus on the fight against social and economic inequality, to which the entity will allocate 115 million euros in the next four years to support organizations focused on social assistance and the development of financial education programs, which will benefit directly to more than three million people. Likewise, non-financial support programs will be developed, such as ‘BBVA Momentum’, ‘Women Entrepreneur’ in Turkey or ‘My first Company’ in Argentina, for which 40 million euros will be allocated.

The second focus of the plan will be focused on creating opportunities through education . This plan, endowed with 215 million euros, will focus on educational access and quality programs; closing the digital divide in the field and free access to educational content.

Finally, the third focus, for which 180 million euros will be invested, will focus on supporting research and culture . This includes support programs for researchers and creators in the field of economics, science and culture, such as the Frontiers of Knowledge awards.

BBVA develops its social programs within the framework of multi-year community investment plans in all the countries where the group is present.

Boost to entrepreneurs
BBVA, within the framework of its social inclusion strategy and through various initiatives, will support five million entrepreneurs, help more than three million people have a quality education and train one million people in financial education. In total, these programs will reach 100 million people in that period , which runs from 2021 to 2025. The latest plan, developed between 2016 and 2019, benefited more than 35 million people.


The Bank Turns Around In A Year And Already Has A Profitability Of 10%

The country’s listed banks, with the exception of Sabadell , already have a profitability (ROE, return on capital) close to 10%, which is expected to be achieved throughout this last semester. The financial sector is rebuilding after the worst of the pandemic and turns 180 degrees in just one year: the most significant entities in the country had a negative return of 3.5% at the end of September 2020.

In fact, with the exception of Bankinter, which in recent years has consolidated ROE levels above 10%, the current photograph shows the best profitability data for the country’s large banks since 2015, the date on which the European Central Bank (ECB ), set interest rates to zero.

While waiting for the banks to present results this week with Bankinter as the starting signal, Santander placed its ROE in the first half of the year at 9.53%; BBVA , at 10.4%; CaixaBank , at 8.2% and the bank headed by María Dolores Dancausa, at 9.5%.

The relief measures implemented during the pandemic for families and companies, such as the mortgage and consumer credit moratoriums, among others, together with the ERTEs, prevented a wave of defaults in the financial sector that, unlike the last major crisis, where the NPL ratio climbed to 13%, is currently down.

Specifically, the whole of the sector in Spain closed July (the last month for which there is data) with a default of 4.39%, the lowest level since March 2009. The worst default forecasts, which pointed to a default of 10% With a view to the end of this year or the beginning of the next , they have already dissipated, and are currently between 5% and 8%, with a ceiling in 2022, and manageable for the financial sector with the provisions made throughout last year.

The terror of defaults, although no one rules out a rise, only a worse scenario, is added the recovery of the economy, a tailwind for the banks, given the expected recovery of consumer credit, and the improvement in the markets. For now, this accelerated recovery of the economy has already given way to inflation (as in most countries) which, while the ECB still considers it transitory, an argument with which it avoids a rate hike, the market discounts that it is going to stay longer than expected, registering great volatility.

In fact, the CEO of CaixaBank, Gonzalo Gortázar, asked the supervisor on Friday not only to work with a scenario in which inflation is transitory, but to assess its prolongation over time. In this case, if persistent inflation above 2% were to be confirmed, the supervisor could raise interest rates to correct prices, blown in favor of the financial sector. It should be noted that a rise of one point in the Euribor (something that is not expected in the short or medium term)supposes an income of 2,000 million more to the year for the great bank .

The market consensus already expects better results for the end of September than before the pandemic (specifically 40% more), with profits of 14.6 billion.


Iberdrola Escapes And ‘La Cartera’ Sets An Entry Price For Cellnex

There are investment opportunities that are narrowly missed and that has been the case of Iberdrola in the elEconomista Portfolio , which had set its entry price at 8.6 euros in recent weeks . However, the company chaired by Sánchez-Galán remained 1.2 cents from crossing this threshold, which gave entry to the active management tool proposed by this medium. From there, their titles have risen close to 10%, removing the possibility of future entry into the portfolio.

For this reason, the elEconomista Portfolio has chosen to remove Iberdrola from the radar to include another already known value, such as Cellnex , in which a purchase level will be set at 52 euros , of which it is currently at a 3% drop from current levels.

From a technical point of view, “the first objectives go through 57.6 and 59.60 euros, to later head towards historical highs, located at 61 euros per share and up to where there is a rise of 15%,” he explains. Joan Cabrero, Ecotrader advisor.

However, the consensus of analysts that Bloomberg collects is more ambitious and sets its target price for the next 12 months at 66.6 euros, which implies an upside potential of more than 25% from its current levels.

It should be remembered that Cellnex was in the initial portfolio of the tool and that it already left capital gains of 2,440 euros (33% profitability). His recommendation, which was already good, has recently improved, placing Cellnex in fourth place in the Ibex League of elEconomista, the ranking combined with the advice compiled by FactSet and Bloomberg.

3% profitability
In the rest of the tool’s values, the profit protection stops of IAG, Sacyr and Santander are maintained, which are the three most profitable strategies currently. In the portfolio as a whole, the profitability obtained since the beginning of the same, in February of this year, again exceeds 3%. In contrast, Ence, ACS and Endesa have double-digit losses.
