    European Stocks: Weak euro, weak equities

    European Stocks: Weak euro, weak equities
    The situation may not be quite as simple as this article's title claims, but the combination of slowing economic data and further European Central bank easing is certainly pulling down European equities (and will do so until the data improve).

    Fiat Chrysler has been on a good run of late, however, the sales seem overly reliant on Jeep and Ram.

    French consumer confidence hits 3-year high:

    Consumers in the euro area's second-largest economy are getting more confident about their situation, according to a fresh report. In February, the headline confidence index reached 92, beating the 91 expected by consensus, and up 2 points from January's 90. This is the highest reading since May 2012 when the index also stood at 92. And we have to go all the way back to November 2010 for a higher reading.

    Yesterday we got more subdued news from French businesses, which reported unchanged confidence at 94 (vs. 95 expected) while manufacturing confidence even declined to 99 from 100.

    I expect the French economy to bounce back this year with growth of 0.5% to 1% following a couple of years of stagnation, but the economy is still expected to trail the overall euro area economy.

    French GDP surprises to the upside in Q3:

    The French economy managed to grow 0.3% q/q despite concerns about a lack of structural reforms and the turmoil in Ukraine (and resulting sanctions). Consensus had expected unchanged economic output. Q2 was, however, revised down to -0.1% from 0%.

    Growth was, unsurprisingly, driven by a surge in government consumption of 0.8% while private consumption rose 0.2%. Investments fell 0.6%, imports rose 1.1% and exports gained 0.5%.

    It is certainly a better-than-expected Q3 GDP report, but the France's problems have not yet been solved, and so I expect France to lag countries such as Germany and Spain in terms of growth going into 2015 and 2016.

    French consumer confidence down in April:
    Consumers in France lost a bit of confidence in the economy in April with the index declining no less than 3 points to 85 while consensus had predicted (unchanged) 88.
    Despite the decline in April, confidence has generally been trending upward in recent months and the 3-month moving average reads 86, the second-highest in more than a year after March (86.33).
