3Q reporting season slightly positive

In Europe, more than half of the companies have already published 3Q reports. Of these, 59% of companies have reported better-than-expected earnings. 79% of companies have beaten consensus expectations on sales. Earnings forecasts have improved for European equities over the next few quarters. Earnings are expected to rise +20.1% (y/y) in 4Q and +9.1% (y/y) in 1Q. The technology, financials, consumer staples, and healthcare sectors should see the largest earnings gains in Europe in 2023. In contrast, the energy, materials, and industrial sectors should see earnings decline in 2023. We expect the global stock market index to a slight increase in the medium term.
