    European shares rise as short covering, earnings help temper tepid PMIs

    The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose for a seventh straight session, its best winning streak since early February with Germany's DAX closing at six-month highs, while London's FTSE 100 fell, dragged by healthcare stocks. The data came on the heels of the German government lowering its forecast for 2019 economic growth on Wednesday, which was overshadowed by better-than-expected economic data out of China. "There is so much pessimism around Europe that the negative PMI data failed to find fresh sellers, triggering short-covering," said Giuseppe Sersale, fund manager at Anthilia Capital in Milan.

    FTSE 100 dips on sluggish euro zone PMI, Unilever sparkles

    The FTSE 100 was down 0.2 percent and the FTSE 250 dropped 0.1 percent.

Euro zone business activity barely grew in April as demand was sluggish even though prices rose modestly, surveys showed.

    Why Credit Suisse says tech stocks are actually defensive (hint: it’s the cash)

    While many eyes will turn to the Pinterest and Zoom initial public offerings, part of a strong run of tech IPOs recently, most of the attention will fall on the Justice Department’s release of the redacted Mueller report into U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia. The debate over whether tech stocks will fall when the economic cycle turns to contraction, and businesses and consumers pull back on spending, has heated up in recent years.

    Glory Days Are Over for European Stocks in 2019, Strategists Say

    According to the average response in a Bloomberg poll, the Stoxx Europe 600 Index is likely to fall 8.9 percent from Wednesday’s close, to 355 points, by the end of 2019. The Euro Stoxx 50 Index, home of the euro-area’s biggest companies, is seen retreating 6.4 percent from current levels, to 3,255, the survey shows. The region’s equities are being torn between conflicting signals: optimism over global growth has helped boost the value of the Stoxx 600 by about $1.7 trillion from its December lows, while outflows from European equity funds continue almost non-stop.

China's economy unexpectedly steadied in the first quarter, defying expectations for a further slowdown, as industrial production jumped sharply and consumer demand showed signs of improvement. "The reaction in equity markets was muted after the data release, probably because much of the positivity has already been priced in," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM.
