Sanofi Beats the Expectation as Dupixent Sales Surge 43%

Sanofi raised its full-year earnings forecast due to continued forecast-beating sales growth for its bestselling drug Dupixent.

Sanofi said in a statement on Thursday that it now expects adjusted earnings per share to increase by about 15% in 2022, excluding the impact of currency fluctuations. Previously, it had projected low double-digit percentage growth.

Sanofi's second-quarter business operating income, or adjusted earnings before interest & tax, soared 21.5% to 2.75 billion euros ($2.81 billion), exceeding the average analyst estimates of 2.66 billion euros.

Sanofi shares (NASDAQ: SNY) traded 1.13% higher on Wednesday’s trading hours to price at $50.92 per share.

MACROECONOMIC DATA ANALYSIS

Masayoshi Amamiya, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ), stressed the importance of keeping monetary policy ultra-loose due to uncertainty about whether wages will rise sufficiently to compensate households for higher living costs. While household spending is improving, wages must rise faster than inflation in order for consumption to continue rising and for Japan's economy to recover from a pandemic-induced slump, as said by Amamiya in a speech.

The Philippine central bank is prepared to use the "full force of available measures" and take all necessary monetary policy actions to combat inflation, its governor said on Thursday, following a 75-basis-point rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve. According to central bank Governor Felipe Medalla, the Philippines' robust economic prospects continue to allow for further monetary policy tightening measures.

CURRENCIES

The U.S. dollar edged lower on Thursday morning to three-week lows against the yen after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell assuaged investors' concerns about continued aggressive monetary tightening, raising its benchmark interest rate by 75 basis points. The U.S. Dollar Index, which tracks the greenback against other major currencies, fell 0.18% to 106.138.

GOLD

The bullion was up on Thursday morning as comments from U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on future interest rate hikes were less hawkish than expected. Gold futures traded 1.20% higher to $1,739 an ounce. The dollar, which usually moves opposite to gold, fell slightly on Thursday morning.

OIL

Oil was higher in Thursday’s early hours, supported by lower crude inventories and a rebound in gasoline demand in the United States. Brent crude futures jumped by 1.53% to $103.28 per barrel, while WTI crude barrels escalated by 1.76% to $98.97 a barrel.

INDICES

USA: S&P500 +2.62%, Dow Jones Industrial Average +1.37%, Nasdaq Composite +4.26%
