European shares bounced back from a four-day slump on Wednesday, lifted by a report that Beijing and Washington are moving closer to a trade deal. The STOXX 600 closed 1.2% up after Bloomberg reported that the two sides were closer to agreeing on the amount of tariffs that would be rolled back in a phase one trade deal. The report lifted the benchmark from a one-month low hit on Tuesday after U.S. President Donald Trump said a deal might have to wait until after the presidential election next November.
European shares clocked a sixth-straight week of gains on Friday following record highs on Wall Street after bullish comments from a White House official on U.S.-China trade talks. The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 0.4%, close to four-year highs it hit last week, with most sectors ending in the black. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said late on Thursday Washington and Beijing were getting close to a trade agreement, citing what he called very constructive talks with Beijing about ending a 16-month trade war.

(Bloomberg) -- A global equity fund manager has pared his stakes in expensive western stocks such as ASML Holding NV and now favors cheaper Asian shares including Samsung Electronics Co.The Dutch semiconductor equipment maker is a “super nice company” but was looking too pricey, said Klaus Ingemann, a portfolio manager at AllianceBernstein LP. Instead, he’s particularly bullish on Samsung, for which he sees further equity gains despite lingering concerns over stagnant DRAM chip prices.“We reduced our most expensive growth stocks,” the Ingemann said from Copenhagen. His main fund, which has assets of about $2 billion, has beaten 94% of peers over the past five years. “We have Microsoft a little in the portfolio, but some the higher-growth names in the U.S. were just too expensive. So we tried to be a little bit conservative.”Lately, Ingemann has been looking at cheaper companies in Asian nations like Japan, South Korea and Singapore. He favors a “neutral” strategy, balanced with value and growth shares with large to small market value across various sectors and regions.Shares of Samsung, South Korea’s most-valuable company, have rallied 33% this year on hopes for a recovery in global memory makers. And yet, it’s still trading at about 13 times estimated earnings for the next year, compared with 29 times for ASML.Samsung reported quarterly earnings that beat analyst estimates earlier this month and will release its detailed results Thursday.“Probably the demand is coming back in mid-next year,” Ingemann said. He expects a new smartphone cycle, 5G and re-acceleration of capital investment in cloud operations by Google and Amazon.com Inc. to be a boost. But that’s not all, he added. “There’s something interesting going on, as we see more cameras in self-driving, which will need more memory too.”To contact the reporter on this story: Heejin Kim in Seoul at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lianting Tu at firstname.lastname@example.org, Kurt Schussler, Cecile VannucciFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

European shares struggled to make headway on Wednesday as investor concerns about a further delay to Britain's departure from the EU offset gains for London's exporter-heavy FTSE 100 from a weaker pound and some decent corporate earnings. The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed just 0.1% higher, with technology stocks among the biggest drags after a sales warning from U.S. chipmaker Texas Instruments hit its European peers. Mining stocks jumped 1%, lifted by a smaller-than-expected drop in quarterly profit at aluminum producer Norsk Hydro.
Investing.com - ASML Holding (AS:ASML) reported third quarter earnings that matched analysts' expectations on Wednesday and revenue that fell short of forecasts.
European stocks pulled back slightly on Wednesday from their strongest closing high in more than a year as clashing headlines on Britain's last-minute efforts to forge a divorce deal with the European Union left investors hanging on the outcome. Hopes of a breakthrough took the pan-European STOXX 600 to its highest close since May 2018 on Tuesday, but the index closed down 0.1% with London's exporter-laden FTSE 100 , which tends to fall when the pound gains, lagging the most with a 0.6% decline. A report that the main stumbling block to a deal had been removed to news that the talks had hit a "standstill" made for a choppy trading session, but expectations of a no-deal Brexit faded.

(Bloomberg) -- ASML Holding NV forecast fourth-quarter sales ahead of analysts’ expectations, as Europe’s largest semiconductor equipment maker won orders for 23 more of its newest lithography machines.The Netherlands-based company, which has a monopoly on extreme ultraviolet-lithography equipment, predicts sales of 3.9 billion euros ($4.3 billion) for the fourth quarter, compared with an average estimate of 3.87 billion euros. A year earlier, ASML reported sales of 3.14 billion euros over that quarter.Shares of ASML fell as much as 2.1%. The shares has surged 77% so far this year through Tuesday, making ASML the fourth Dutch company with a market value of more than a 100 billion euros.Key InsightsASML, an important supplier to chip makers including Samsung Electronics Co. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., forecasts a gross margin of about 48% to 49% in the fourth quarter of the year, matching the average estimate for 48.8%.The 23 EUV orders in the third quarter contributed to the highest-ever value of bookings in one quarter, said Chief Executive Officer Peter Wennink. “This strong order flow confirms the adoption of EUV in high volume manufacturing for Logic and Memory.”Wennink added he expects the Logic business to continue to be strong, driven by the leading-edge nodes supporting end-market technology and applications such as 5G and artificial intelligence, while the timing of the memory industry’s recovery remains uncertain.ASML locked in bookings worth of 5.1 billion euros in the last quarter.Analyst Comment“The order value really pops out, what is impressive amid the trade war and negative impact on electronics,” InsingerGilissen Bankiers analyst Jos Versteeg said by phone, “Such a strong growth does show how confident chip manufacturers are and that they do not want to miss the boat. I think the build-up to 5G leads to a considerable demand for semiconductors.”Know MoreThird-quarter sales came in at 2.99 billion euros, slightly below the average estimate of 3.01 billion euros. In the quarter, ASML shipped seven EUV systems, three of which were NXE:3400C, the higher productivity model.ASML newest machines, called extreme ultraviolet lithography systems or EUV, etch smaller circuits while increasing capacity and speed. EUV machines, about the size of a bus, cost more than 100 million euros each. ASML earns the bulk of its revenue in Asia.ASML models an annual revenue opportunity of 13 billion euros in 2020 and an annual revenue of between 15 billion euros and 24 billion euros through 2025, based on its positive view of technology drivers such as 5G communications, automotive, artificial intelligence and data centers. CEO Wennink said in the statement he continues to see 2019 as a growth year.What Bloomberg Intelligence says:Greater exposure to chip lithography equipment could help ASML achieve strong sales growth from 2020 onward, although sales and profit may temporarily drop in 2019. ASML is well-positioned as the only maker of extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV) machines, for the next generation of chips for AI and 5G.(Updates with shares, analyst comment.)To contact the reporter on this story: Ellen Proper in Amsterdam at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Edwin ChanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of European equity markets brought to you by Reuters stocks reporters and anchored today by Joice Alves. European stocks may take a bit of a breather after their late afternoon flurry yesterday amid hopes of a Brexit deal, although markets are likely to be volatile as investors brace for headlines on how negotiations are faring. London stock futures are down 0.2%, dragged lower by the positive sterling, although any positive news on Brexit is likely to push up domestic stocks from housebuilders to banks and may offset gains among exporters.
Semiconductor equipment maker ASML beat quarterly profit and bookings forecasts on Wednesday, continuing a strong run of results on demand for its latest chipmaking equipment. The Dutch firm's shares have surged 75% this year, shrugging off weak end-markets for semiconductor producers as ASML's cutting-edge equipment remains in demand from computer chip heavyweights like Samsung Electronics and Taiwan Semiconductor. Third-quarter net profit came in at 627 million euros ($692 million), beating analysts' average forecast of 609 million according to a Reuters poll, though the outcome was down on the 680 million made in the same period last year.
