On the whole, Europe has wisely managed the recent crisis and sentiment on the economic level. Several investors have started betting on Europe lately than that of the U.S. The equity valuations look sprawled, and China tensions are pretty intense in the U.S. market. Also, with the coming November election, U.S. equities will be at an all-time high. Whereas, while looking into upcoming events, Europe is a calm economy compared to the U.S.

Investors say the European market is cheap, and data shows that European stocks are poised for a quicker profit rebound. But the stocks in Asia and the U.S. have revived near records, and the Europe Stoxx 600 Index is still about 15% away from pre-pandemic highs. Although the investors are optimistic about this, the rise in virus cases and travel restriction threatens an already tenuous economic recovery (1).
