European Companies: Why Invest Now?

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Major European companies have been discounted because of negative investor sentiment about economic prospects for the European Union (EU). As a result, strong companies with high growth potential appear undervalued relative to their U.S. counterparts.

There are three macroeconomic factors throughout the EU that should help those companies realize their growth potential and achieve higher valuations:

  • A historically weak euro, which could help boost European exports;
  • Accommodative monetary policy that’s expected to stimulate the European Union’s economy; and
  • Labor market reforms that may lower costs, potentially enhancing productivity and corporate profitability.
