Portfolio Managers Optimistic about Europe’s Economic Outlook on Stock Exchange

European Economic Optimism: Positive Signs for Cyclicals and the Stock Market

The European economic outlook looked promising in the morning, as a survey conducted by Bank of America’s portfolio managers predicted an improvement within the next year. This was the first positive indication in nearly two years and was reflected in the market, where cyclicals outperformed defensives.

The FTSE 100 in London and DAX in Frankfurt were both slightly up, while CAC 40 in Paris remained stable. The survey revealed that a net 21 percent of respondents anticipated an improvement in Europe’s economic outlook over the next 12 months, with cyclical stocks expected to outperform defensive ones as lending becomes more accessible.

In other news, SBB, a Swedish real estate company, announced the purchase of its bonds worth approximately 163 million euros to reduce its debt burden. This move caused SBB’s shares to rise by 11.8 percent on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. Meanwhile, Deutsche Telekom revealed plans to increase its share buyback program from 250 million euros to 800 million euros, though its stock price saw a slight decrease.

Looking ahead, futures suggest a bearish opening for Wall Street, with the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Jones futures all showing a decline. Despite this news, various listings related to electronic devices, firearms, and other products for sale were also included in the content.

Overall, while Europe is looking towards a positive economic outlook and optimism is high for cyclical stocks over defensive ones
