Equilor recalled that Mol published its third-quarter flash report at dawn on Friday. The group exceeded analysts' expectations on all major earnings lines, with all divisions reporting better results than expected. The company achieved more than 86% of its 2021 annual EBITDA forecast in the first nine months, prompting management to raise its target from USD 3 billion to USD 3.2 billion.
OTP also reported on Friday. Third-quarter revenues grew ahead of expectations, while rising risk costs drove the earnings line slightly below expectations. A slight deterioration in net interest margin was negative in the quarter, especially given the rising interest rate environment, the analysis summarized.
The weekly summary also indicated that Richter will continue on Monday and Magyar Telekom on Tuesday with a quick report.
They pointed out that there is a growing chance that Vraylar, a drug containing the active ingredient cariprazine, could receive approval as an adjunctive treatment for major depression in the US, which would represent huge potential for Richter.
