Citigroup has upgraded its recommendation on the textile giant to 'buy', with its price target raised from 21 to 25 euros per share.

With the pull of these great values, the Spanish selective has already chained four sessions on the rise and recovers 8,100 points, but experts advise not to launch the bells on the fly yet.

From the analysis department of Link Securities they advise to be cautious when increasing positions since "the recent good behavior of the western equity markets we believe to be a mere technical rebound".

In addition, they recall that as we get closer to Friday, a session in which the quadruple expiration of stock and index derivative contracts will take place at the end of the quarter, «the volatility in the stock markets will increase and their behavior may be something erratic”.
