11:40 am
you have fundamentals. we think are improving on valuation. the bank sector in europe is pricing risk. we thought valuation metric back to financial crisis levels. they are in certain well-known italian or german banks. hasbank sector at large done a good job deleveraging and raised a lot of capital over the last six or seven years. on the fundamental side they are mixed. fundamentals look great. actually having a mixed fundamental environment. every single euro zone economy -- we thinkprecious
11:41 am
it is a mismatch between the system risk evaluation and the selected risks in the sector we are being. we think these modest improvements will be supported by bank share prices. weeke: a note just last calling the bank sector the good the bad and the ugly. the scandinavian banks are really doing very well. really talking ugly. how do you play this? do you just by the euro stoxx 600 bank index? it gets pretty stock specific when you get down to it. are happyine level we buying banks relative to our other sector.

which have taken health care down. we are happy to take banks over health care. industrial hedges from economic risks. we have already seen banks around the world perform better. the roadmap for europe next year. we see them as cheap stocks rather than expensive banks. we like playing those against the markets. more broadly we think it's time for investors to take on more exposure to the broader sector. as industrials which we think are expensive and cyclical. vonnie: we are about to head into earnings season. goldman sachs issuing a warning asically saying more of
11:43 am
profit recession that we are underestimating that risk. what are you looking for in earnings season? earnings are the lifeblood of any equity market. we have had eps trends falling. earnings expectations have fallen from 10% to zero each of the last three years. emerging market earnings expectations have gone 10 to seven. we think the same thing will happen into next year because of a more benign dollar market and because of a more benign commodity market. synchronized growth. if that happens growth will be better. mark: what does it take for european banks to be a momentum trade? trap. have value
11:44 am
value trade. momentum trade. to go from value trap to value trade you need the risk environment to improve. they need the fundamentals to improve. are a long way away from that but we think there is enough to go from value trap to value trade. to get to the momentum the fundamentals need to improve now. we are watching what the ecb ins in the december meeting relation to messaging the market. perhaps a reduction in and bond purchases which would be to the benefit of banks around europe. we are watching that closely. it's quite likely that over the next couple of meetings we go to a reduction in stevens theich yield curve. that would be good for europe's financials.
