“A trader commented that ‘Apple supposedly wants to bid 4 euros a share for Loewe,’ which sent Loewe shares up as much as 44.5 percent to €3.93 compared to yesterday’s closing price of €2.72,” Dillet reports. “The German stock exchange closed today with Loewe shares trading at €3.35, representing a one-day increase of 23.16 percent.”
