LVMH SHARE

After a record year for stock markets in 2021, the CAC 40 reached an all-time high on January 5, 2022 before gradually falling in response to a series of shocks.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict and fears of an embargo on Russian oil and gas initially fueled a surge in commodity prices, swiftly followed by shortages in the agri-food sector. New health restrictions in China further weakened supply chains already stretched following the pandemic and pushed up inflation. In an attempt to control rising prices, the Fed and then the ECB hardened their monetary policy by winding up their asset purchase programs and hiking interest rates. 

Like most global stock market indices, the CAC 40 plummeted, ending June 2022 below the 6,000-point level, making H1 2022 its worst half-year aside from in 2008 and 2020. The CAC 40 and Euro Stoxx 50 indices ended the half-year sharply down, having lost 17.2% and 16.5% respectively. Meanwhile, LVMH’s share price fell 20% to 581.7 euros.

LVMH is included in the main French and European indices used by fund managers: the CAC 40, DJ Euro Stoxx 50, MSCI Europe and the FTSE Eurotop 100, as well as the Global Dow and FTSE4Good, one of the key indices for socially responsible investing.

FocusAUGMENTED PRESENCE FOR LVMH AT VIVA TECHNOLOGY 2022

At VivaTech 2022, LVMH unveils its Apartment… and the vitality of the Group’s innovation ecosystem.
