Renault shares experienced a surgeon on the Tradegate platform following the French carmaker’s release of its full-year 2023 financial results, which showed margin and revenue gains alongside a significant dividend increase.

Strong Market Response:

Renault shares rose by 6.1% on the Tradegate platform, reflecting investor enthusiasm for the company’s performance despite its net profit slightly below forecasts for the year.

Renault announced a substantial dividend increase, proposing a dividend of 1.85 euros for 2023, a significant rise from 0.25 euros in 2022. This move aligns with similar actions by U.S. automakers Ford and General Motors, demonstrating Renault’s commitment to rewarding investors.

Improved Operating Margin:

Renault reported an operating margin of 7.9% for 2023, up from 5.5% in the previous year. The company expects an operating margin of around 7.5% for the current year and reaffirmed its target of achieving double-digit margins by 2030.

Analysts are particularly interested in Renault’s plan to sell more Nissan shares in 2024 and how the company intends to utilize the proceeds. Additionally, investors seek insights into Renault’s outlook for the current year and the factors driving management’s confidence in expecting a strong performance.

Stellantis Warning:

In contrast to Renault’s positive performance, rival Stellantis warned of a “turbulent” year ahead after reporting a 10% decline in operating profit in the second half. Strikes impacting operations in North America contributed to Stellantis’ challenges.
