    Tesco is trading around GBp174 while analysts have a (median) target of 212.

    French manufacturing and services PMI both miss:

    The bad economic data for France continues in October with the preliminary versions of PMI manufacturing and PMI services both showing steeper drops in output compared with a month ago.

    The PMI manufacturing index declined to 47.3 in October vs. 48.5 expected and 48.8 prior while PMI services printed 48.1 vs. 48.3 expected and 48.4 prior. This implies a drop in the composite PMI to 48 from 48.4.

    We do not have high hopes for the French economy going forward and think the current consensus forecasts for growth in 2015 and 2016 of 0.9% and 1.6% to be too optimistic.
