European markets closed with devaluations of less than 1%, at a time when business results remain on the agenda. The technology sector was influenced by the selling pressure seen by US companies after the news about iPhones 8 orders. SAP remained broadly unchanged. The German technology company reported lower-than-expected earnings and quarterly revenues, but still improved its forecast for total revenues in 2017. Tele2 was the top-earning operator in the telecoms business, fueled by news that the operator raised its outlook for profit for the third quarter. On the other hand, Carrefour and Pernod Ricard also registered significant increases after the two companies recently presented their results. However, Unilever penalized the respective sector (household goods and personal care), after having reported a growth for the quarterly sales of 2.60% compared to the anticipated 4%. This differential was due to climatic factors such as hurricanes in the USA and the heavy rains that hit Central Europe. Nestlé lost 0.89%, despite announcing a quarterly increase of 2.60% in sales, slightly higher than the estimated 2.50%. On negative ground was also the advertising company, Publicis, in reaction to the results below expectations.
