German Stocks To Consider As Angela Merkel Wins Reelection

Investment ideas

This is largely very good news for German companies. Siemens (SA), one of the most important bellweathers of the German economy, has just finished a management shake-up after Merkel pressed for one. Falling sales there made the prospect of rising taxes or environmental costs all the more frightening. Some analysts are upgrading their outlook for the firm – Finviz lists an average 'buy rating' while Zacks is still listing the stock as a 'hold' (see below). 

Europe's second largest economy, France, has had an excellent summer as well. The country surprised the world and bolstered European indices by releasing a higher-than-expected Purchasing Managers Index (PMI). PMI looks at a number of "sub-indicators" of economic health like how much businesses are adding to things like staff and inventory.

France's PMI is now over 50 for the first time in 19 months – the benchmark a country must pass before it is considered to be in expansion. The upgrade may prompt economists to augment France's GDP projections as well. 

We compiled a list of French and German stocks with average 'buy' ratings. Are they poised for future growth? Use the interactive charts below to begin your own analysis.
