Price gain at Infineon
Immediately after the start of the stock market, the share rose 5 percent to € 24.26. In the Dax, she was thus at the top of the winners list. Later the value dropped again a little. At the end of the trading day, however, the company was able to show a plus of 4.7 percent.
According to analysts, the reason for the price gain is above all the increase in the prices of DRAM chips from the South Korean manufacturer Hynix. After the price increase of 10 to 20 percent in December, these were increased by another 30 percent. The low prices last year are the main reason for the sometimes huge losses for the semiconductor industry. Infineon's share fell by a full 42 percent. According to Infineon, the main culprits are Hynix and Samsung.
