PARIS (Reuters) – Shares in French tire maker Michelin (MICP.PA) fell on Tuesday after the company forecast a slightly lower operating income for 2020 and flagged uncertainty to its business from the coronavirus crisis in China.

Michelin shares were down 1.2% in early session trading, the worst-performing stock on France’s benchmark CAC-40 index .FCHI.
