“The first being smaller cap stocks starting to outperform larger cap stocks, given the excessive valuation that large cap stocks are currently trading at emerging stocks outperforming U.S. stocks, and then that potential rotation from growth-oriented stocks value oriented stocks.” Kevin Mahn, Hennion & Walsh chief investment officer, told Yahoo Finance on Thursday.
European stock indexes have been doing well for the last two weeks. Many European companies are doing well. This is because Europe is a leading economy and there are many multinational corporations based in Europe.
The European stock market has benefited from this. One of the reasons that European stocks are doing well is because European companies have been doing well in terms of profits.
There are many European companies that have been doing very well. Some of these companies include: CMC, Pestec, Enron, EQC, Royal Dutch, Alcoa, ATG, Unilever, Philip Morris, Glaxo, Intel, Union Carbide, Wal-Mart, General Motors, Merck, Daewoo, Boeing, Union Carbide, AT&T, Coca Cola, Microsoft, and many more. These companies have done extremely well for the European stock index.
When European stocks decline, they tend to do so in the U.S. stock index. It’s because many companies from Europe have made it big in the American stock market.
In addition, there are many foreign countries that use the European stock index as theirs. So there are many things that happen when European stocks go up and down.
The best thing for investors is that the European stock index does not matter much to the United States.
It’s not that European stocks don’t matter at all. It’s just that other parts of the world aren’t as worried about what happens with the European stock markets. Investors don’t care much for the Euro.
But when the European stock index goes up, then that means that the American stock market is going to lose money. There are many different reasons why the Euro rises and why the Swiss National Bank drops.
It’s hard to say which way the Swiss National Bank will fall. But if you think about it, the Swiss economy is in a very stable spot right now and there’s no real reason to worry about their stock market.
