Of two evils, one must choose the lesser. Italy of EDF campaign could result in a victory on the line, but he had to avoid a withdrawal without glory, which would have been a huge industrial and financial mess. François Roussely has was taken to Bonaparte at the bridge of Arcole and was himself in the position of François I before Pavia. To escape the noose implemented by the Italian authorities, his successor had to obtain a compromise saving the essential. This is what succeeded Pierre Gadonneix, after Paris and Rome started agree to remove political obstacles which polluted the folder. In partnering with 50-50 with authority of Milan (AEM) electricity, EDF is both the Italian and financial partner that makes the takeover of Edison bearable for transalpine self-esteem, on the one hand, and French finance, on the other hand. EDF will have to share power, although he had little means to do otherwise. And the detention of 50 of the number two Italian electricity is infinitely preferable to outright abandonment in favour of the only Italians or a large Spanish competitor.
Unilever mayonnaise begins to climb. At least in the stock market where, after years of disappointment, sauces champion but also ice and of laundry regained nearly 20 of its value in six months, with a rising particularly net Friday. It is that, since February, there is more than a head in the kitchen, the French Patrick Cescau, instead of a not always effective duo. And that the flavours expression that give off are more attractive than before: advertising is relaunched, the Group continued to lose ground in some markets, and began to divest assets. But missing several ingredients that the emulsion should really take. Before any true return of growth, the first quarter is primarily due to a greater number of working days. Then a coup to stop the decline in prices in Europe, which always draws the margins down. This requires no doubt sorting 400 current brands, to focus efforts. Finally, Unilever needs still simplify its very heavy organization. For example, by abandoning its dual structure, in the image of what decided Shell, the other Anglo-Dutch giant poorly in point. Seasoning then really awaken the taste buds of the investors.
Boeing, the return
Nothing like the position of challenger to Excel. With the command of eighteen B787 by Northwest, Boeing has undoubtedly resumed hand. After those won from Air Canada and Air India, the new success falls very well, at the time of the first flight of the Airbus A380. Even better, it is argued the alternative proposed by the us to the giant European aircraft that it is a traditional customer of Airbus which is regained. The reaction of Wall Street is symptomatic. As Boeing, experiencing two years a powerful catch-up, has seen a rising accelerate lately. He was previously worn by an effect of cycle linked to the resumption of air traffic and the deliveries of the present generation. It is now regaining the hearing from analysts and investors for its own merits, and especially for the chances of the B787 with the A380 in the competition that will decide the leader of the next generation of long haul. Since a year and the beginning of the year Boeing course has increased almost four times that of EADS. The American especially found multiple recovery in the high range of its history, which corresponds to the point where its civil and military activities are considered "in phase". A State of grace which cannot yet its European rival.
