4 Reasons European Stocks Will Make a Big Comeback This Year / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: John_Mauldin

BY STEPHEN MCBRIDE : Just a year ago, Europe looked like the last place where you’d want to put your money.

The UK had voted to leave the EU, top German and Italian banks were in shambles, and populists reigned on the Continent.

The issues that plagued Europe didn’t fade away, but the turmoil subsided.

While everyone was applauding the uptick in US growth after the election, Europe recorded higher growth in 2016. This reversal of fortunes has now begun to show up in the markets.

By: Harry_Dent

Most people watch the FTSE 100, the leading index in the UK, and the German DAX. The former was the first major index in Europe to make a new all-time high as investors rewarded it for Brexit instead of punishing it, counter to expectations. The latter is finally within spitting distance of making a new high. It just needs to rally another 3%.

Deutche Bank Stock Price Crash - The EU Has Problems Far Beyond the Brexit / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Harry_Dent

The Dow dropped nearly 1,000 points (5%) and the London FTSE dropped 10% after the Brexit vote surprised the markets on June 23. After two days though, markets were marching back up again.

That’s just like markets on “crack!” They react to political events, but totally miss the fundamentals.

Yes, Brexit is important. Years from now it will be recognized as the beginning of the end for the great Eurozone experiment.

The French stock index, the CAC40, has traded more or less as outlined in analysis produced back in May 2015. That analysis called the top in place and outlined expectations of a bear market to play out.

Price hit a low this past week at 3892 which was just over 26% down from the May 2015 high and I believe that may well represent the final low to the bear market.

Ever since the fall of communism in 1989, the country has risen steadily, from a fledgling republic beset by near-bankruptcy, a deteriorating infrastructure and an East-West identity crisis, to emerge as one of the European Union’s (EU) most prosperous nations, alongside the U.K., France, Germany and Spain.

According to Gallup’s U.S. Economic Confidence Index, consumer sentiment remains in negative territory. After falling to -39 during the recent standoff in Washington, U.S. economic confidence has improved to -36. To use the term “improved” is being generous; in late May, the index was at -3.

German DAX – Different Country, Different Culture. People Are People / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Michael_Noonan

The one common denominator that crosses all cultures, even religions, is money. It is the global equalizer. We take a look at the DAX, Germany’s stock market. Do the “precise” Germans fare any better at investing than at, say, building cars?. Likely not. Money goes to the core of the human psyche as the fundamental driver for tapping into the fear/greed element from which few escape, at least when it comes to investing.

Unfortunately, DAX does not have volume, a vital element that shows the ebb and flow of two incredibly important principles, supply and demand. Why it volume so important? It shows the effect from the cause factor of investors/traders making buy/sell decisions.

Is the Euro Zone Debt Crisis Really Over? / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Many investors are wondering what has been behind the relentless rally in stock prices. Look no further than corporate profits.

Consider that in the third quarter of 2013, corporate earnings were $1.75 trillion, up 18.6% from a year ago. That took after-tax profits to their greatest percentage of GDP in history. For the most recent quarter, earnings for S&P 500 companies are estimated to have risen 4.7 percent, above a 1.9 percent forecast at the start of the earnings season. See earnings chart shown below.

Germany Becomes an Appealing Investment / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Trader_Mark

While we've had a quite serious correction in domestic markets, Europe has been crushed the past few months - for obvious reason. As I was looking over the charts last night, it was stunning to see a country like Germany, the fourth largest economy in the world, mangled to the tune of a 33%+ loss in under two months. No matter the outcome of this crisis (and fact the Eurozone is probably headed for recession anew), this is a very dynamic economy which has probably melded the best parts of 'capitalism' and 'socialism' (I hate the labels) to create an export machine with a high standard of living.

You can think of the "DAX" as the Dow Jones Industrial Average of Germany. It consists of the biggest blue-chip German companies. Names you'll recognize here include BMW, Merck, Bayer, Adidas, Daimler, BASF, and Volkswagen. As you can see from today's chart, these blue chips are in crash mode. The DAX has fallen 31% in the past two months. This type of move is the mark of a region in crisis.

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the iShares MSCI Germany Index ETF (EWG) has experienced a 5-6% decline during the past week, my pattern analysis argues that all of the action off of the Nov 4 high at 24.92 represents a sideways, bullish digestion period. When complete this should resolve in another thrust to the upside that projects to 27.00-plus in a resumption of the larger bull leg off the May 2010 low at 17.97.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fear of another financial crisis in Europe is impacting the markets around the world. The decline in the euro has been significant enough to rekindle speculation of the euros demise. Portugal’s bond auction of 12 monthTreasury bonds saw a significant rise in cost with the yield hitting 5.28% versus the 4.8% in early November. Spain has seen a rise in yields as well with rumors growing concerning financial trouble. It is the uncertainty of the current issues facing Europe that are driving the markets lower. One thing is for sure, a lack of clarity breeds speculation which left unchecked will feed on itself causing extreme market volatility.

European Stock Pare Gains After Four Up days / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS stocks rose Tuesday, sending the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index to its biggest gain in two weeks, following higher-than-estimated earnings and BHP Billiton’s massive $39 billion bid for Potash of Saskatchewan Bellwether stocks. Wal-Mart Stores climbed 1.2% and Home Depot jumped 3.4% as both retailers raised their full-year earnings forecasts. Potash led a rally in fertilizer shares, surging 28%, after rejecting the unsolicited takeover offer from BHP saying (according to the WSJ) BHP has to offer a “Big Boy” price, but the news led all of the fertiliser related names in Europe up with Yara +5.9%, K&S +5.7%. Johnson & Johnson gained 2.1% on news Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway increased its stake in the company.

Better Corporate Earnings Boost European Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe majority of US stocks rose Monday, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index ending a four-day slump, as technology companies helped the market overcome an earlier slide. That slide was driven primarily by concern about an economic slowdown. EBay gained 2 percent on speculation its PayPal service will be used by Google’s smartphone while Newmont Mining advanced 2 percent as gold prices jumped to a six-week high and Goldman Sachs reiterated its “overweight” rating on commodities. But Washington Pos and Corinthian Colleges both sank a hefty 8 percent plus on concern they will lose access to federal financial-aid programs.

Completed Corrective Period for German EWG ETF / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My near- and intermediate-term pattern and momentum work in the iShares German Index Fund ETF (NYSE: EWG) argue that all of the action from the Oct '09 high at 23.40 into last Tuesday's low at 17.97 represents a completed corrective period in that aftermath of the Mar '09 to Oct '09 advance. Let's keep in mind that current strength comes off of 17.97, which was the 50% support plateau of the entire upleg during 2009, and a sign that the EWG is trading very technically at the moment.

Euro Tarp Bailout, Here We Go Again / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe nearly $1 Trillion bailout by Europe of Greece and whichever countries come next, is like an echo of the US TARP rescue of banks in 2008. It is similar in size, similar in its intention to save the banks from their own bad decisions, similar in making taxpayers eventually pay for the mistakes of the banks, and perhaps similar in other outcomes. One outcome that should be noted is that the US and world stock markets continued to fall for several months after TARP. That pattern may repeat. We need to be prepared for that possibility.

Intermediate-term Weakness Ahead for Germany Index EWG ETF / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile everyone is fixed on Greece (for good reason), why don’t we look at the pattern developing in the German equity market, just to keep an eye on the country within the EU that is on the hook for the lion’s share of money to be loaned to the PIIGS. After all shouldn’t the health of the creditor nation’s equity index be telling?

Germany's DAX: FREE Insight Into Europe's Leading Economy / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's one of the first rules in the book of mainstream economic wisdom: a country's economy is the thermometer which "reads" its stock market's temperature. If financial conditions are heating up, stocks rise; if they are cooling down, stocks fall. Were it so simple -- millionaires wouldn't make up a measly .15% of the global population.

How Investors Can Profit from European Election Results / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The European election result has been met with little interest in the United States; for one thing, the plethora of parties from 27 different countries makes it almost incomprehensible. Yet it continued a long-term, very important trend, which should be hugely interesting to international investors.

Weak Start to European Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStock markets remained on the defensive overnight, with the Dax yesterday closing at 4918 while the Nikkei was last down 69 at 9277. International tensions remain elevated in the wake of the nuclear test by North Korea with wires reporting there could be further missile tests by the country this week. There are also fears that shares in the Stoxx 600 may have gotten well ahead of themselves, with a P/E ratio of 24 (a 5 year high) versus the cycle low of 8.3 in Nov 2008.

Investing in Profitable European Companies / Companies / European Stock Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Commentators are tripping over one another to declare this country or that country's stimulus package as a primary reason to pour money into its stock market. Yet if you look at the highly damaging long-term effects of such loose monetary and fiscal policies, an investor can come to only one conclusion: You should invest in the country with the smallest stimulus package.

Investors Diversify Away From the Dollar Into Cheap Value Stocks / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: John_Henry

Today's financial papers read like a history of economic turmoil. In no particular order we have warnings the bank recapitalisation will not be enough if assets continue to fall (shouldn't be a surprise), a surging yen hitting Japan (who largely avoided the bank credit issues), worries over the IMF being swamped with it's relatively small fund of $250bn, Hungary, Iceland and the Ukraine looking into the abyss, global property prices falling at ever faster rates, mass redemptions of hedge funds, $3 trillion of corporate debt needing refinancing in the next 24 months, a BOE report that is frankly as depressing as you're ever likely to read (I hope) and to cap it all worries about the confidence in government debt if any or all of the above continues. Now that has to challenge even the most optimistic of all contrarian investors.

French Economic Reforms Improve Appeal of Cheap French Stocks / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: French investments might have seemed like a bad idea for the first nine months of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's term. After his election in May 2007, Sarkozy looked like a huge disappointment - unless you REALLY enjoy tabloid stories. He divorced his wife, married the spectacularly beautiful ex-model Carla Bruni, and went on an enviable honeymoon in Egypt - but appeared to do nothing useful about France's economic problems.

New Profits in the Old World - Europe / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

When I think of the Old World, among the images that first spring to mind are those of medieval castle towns like Heidelberg, where Rupert the Red founded the fourth university of the Holy Roman Empire in 1386 … or of the Acropolis, rebuilt by Pericles during the Golden Age of Athens between 460 and 430 BC.

It's only on second thought that I remember the modernity of today's Europe.

Similarly, when you think of the European economy, you typically associate it with outdated economic models — burdensome taxation, non-productive social support systems, and a tangled web of government regulations.
