In wait-and-see stance, bond markets do lie,
Says Generali, with an attentive eye.
Whilst inflation's fell swoon doth slowly fade,
Resilient U.S. yields a contrary trade hath made.

BMW's earnings, 2023 the year,
Do herald a decrease most severe.
Yet hope glimmers in shadows cast,
With solid growth in deliveries forecast.

Rebound in China, Adidas' delight,
Once again, it takes flight.
Profit made in quarter two,
Though the annual loss doth continue to accrue.
