"Fear of collapse": profit warning in the largest companies in the world | Israel today

2021-10-14T20:45:26.648Z

Due to the shortage of raw materials and shipping problems, Bloomberg reports a jump in profit warnings for companies such as Apple, Walmart and Amazon.



Artificial intelligence analyzes are routine in the world of databases, so it is no wonder that analysts' reports on companies are analyzed using this method.

Bloomberg reports that in the surveys of the 500 largest companies in the S&P index from the beginning of the year until last Tuesday, the terms "supply chain" and related terms were mentioned 3,000 times, compared to 2,000 mentions in the same period last year. This term explains the pessimistic growth forecasts of the largest real estate companies in the world. Analysts like Scott Moshkin of R5 Investment House are quoted with interest as "real fear of system crashes." Concerns have recently become more intense due to the "shopping holidays" of November and the proximity to Christmas throughout the Western world. We are familiar with the hoteliers' explanation: "The room that was not sold yesterday can no longer be sold," but this statement turns out to be true for retailers in general - the cell phone that was not sold yesterday is a loss, not a rejection. It prolongs the life of the previous phone and it comes at the expense of subsequent phones. Retailers around the world are trying to adapt customers to a more flexible delivery time, hoping to enjoy sales despite the lack of inventory availability.But they do not complement themselves that the move will be fully successful.

Of course the eyes are on China, the big manufacturer responsible for the big delays in goods. The giant Alibaba has been suffering from shipping problems for the past six months, during which time it has lost more than 30% of its value. She has lost 22% of them in the last three months and 4.5% of them in the last month. Amazon is experiencing the problem more moderately because it has greater flexibility in its warehouses around the world, but it has also fallen by 2.5% in the last six months - declines that have intensified in the last three months to 11% - 4.8% of them in the last month. Apple stock, which in the last six months has risen nicely by more than 8%, has changed trend in the last three months and lost more than 5.1% - 4.9% in the last month.

Walmart has barely moved in the past six months;

In the last three months it has fallen by 2.25%, and in the last month by more than 4%.

Costco, the largest U.S. and largest wholesale chain in the world, has not been hit in the past six months, but in the past month has also joined the downward trend when it lost 2.9% of its value. Of these large stocks - S & P500 has risen in the last six months, and only in the look of the last three months can be seen a slight decline of 0.25% in the index, and in the last month a stronger decline of about 1.8%.

In the panel of electricity importers and in the panel of electricity networks held at "Israel Today", the managers claimed that the shortage would hardly be felt in our country due to early preparations with larger inventories.

Some have admitted that there will be a shortage of products of certain brands, but they are not afraid of an acute shortage.
