Companies are making heaps of money in 2021. But what of employees? With their purchasing power crimped by soaring consumer prices, they must be wondering when, if ever, they’ll pocket their fair share. They could be waiting a while.

A year ago analysts thought steelmaker ArcelorMittal SA would be lucky to make US$2bil (RM8.43bil) of net profit in 2021.

Their estimates turned out to be more than a little pessimistic: the Luxembourg-based corporation should report about US$14.5bil (RM61bil) of earnings, higher than the past 13 years combined.

Compared with the US$240bil (RM1 trillion) of profit that US tech giants Apple Inc, Google-parent Alphabet Inc and Microsoft Corp will share this year, the haul might seem trivial, but make no mistake: Europe’s largest companies are mostly doing extraordinarily well and their good fortune looks set to continue.

After surging 67% in 2021 to levels that exceed the pre-pandemic high, profits per share for companies in the Stoxx 600 should increase about 6% next year, according to Bloomberg Intel-ligence.

On average, operating profit margins are expected to rise to about 15% in 2022, the highest in more than a decade.

These profits strengthen balance sheets and help fund vital decarbonisation investments.

Shareholders can also look forward to chunky dividends and share repurchases.

But what of employees? With their purchasing power crimped by soaring consumer prices, they must be wondering when, if ever, they’ll pocket their fair share. They could be waiting a while.

Considering all the talk about supply-chain bottlenecks and raw material cost inflation, one might expect corporate profits to be under real pressure.

In reality, industrial companies seem to be coping just fine.

They tightened spending during the early part of the pandemic and now a combination of strong demand and low inventory levels have helped them push through price increases, further padding profits.

In autos, semiconductor availability crimped production and suppliers have struggled, however the manufacturers have focused on producing their most profitable vehicles, such as limousines and sport utility vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz’s car unit predicts an operating return on sales of between 10% and 12% in 2021, very high by recent standards, and no wonder.

Average selling prices rose to nearly €55,000 (RM261,000) per vehicle in the latest quarter, according to Berenberg.

Average prices will remain 20% above pre-pandemic levels next year, the bank’s analysts think.

Automakers have enjoyed a second dose of good luck.

When leased vehicles are returned, they’re typically worth far more than budgeted due to widespread shortages of second-hand vehicles, making their financial services more profitable.

Metals and energy prices have surged this year, making it a decent time to be an oil producer or miner.
