A new month begins and with it, the updating of the High Five of Portzamparc, this selection of 5 promising average values ​​in the eyes of the analysis office. The month of August did not really keep its promises in terms of performance even if the High Five limited the damage, yielding 3% when the CAC Mid & Small index fell by 5.4% Since the start of the year , the gap is widening between the reference index which drops by 17.6% when the selection of Portzmparc progresses by 11.3%. Over the month of August, it was Reworld Media that weighed on the overall performance, falling by 9.4%, while SSII posted the best increase (+4%).

The month of September is therefore the occasion for arbitration: Equasens and Alten replace Hexaom and SII (which will only have made a short appearance) while Esker, Reworld Media and Roche Bobois remain in place. Detail review.

Accustomed to the High Five, the former Pharmagest is back.
