Blog: Dave LeggettPorsche under pressure

Dave Leggett | 23 May 2003

So Porsche will be offering quarterly figures next week, apparently dumping its long established policy of only publishing such data at six-monthly intervals. Is the company rattled by slow sales of the Cayenne, euro appreciation against the dollar? For sure, the share price is under pressure. But the company is fully hedged on the dollar exchange rate, so that shouldn't be too much of a worry for the moment. Reports of slow sales - especially of the Cayenne SUV - in the US may be cause for a little more concern though. My guess though is that the results next week will reassure investors and provide some fillip to the share price and that is the reason for the change of reporting policy.
