“Good, Bad and Ugly” in Europe Stocks & Sectors?

The Case for Europe Without Banks

Banks historically underperform with more risk:
• Riskier than Energy over the past 10 years
• Underperformance: Banks 2.7% annualized 10-year return vs. 9.3% for STOXX Europe 600

Better way to allocate to Europe?
• Leading consumer and health stocks like Nestle ($372B market cap) and Roche ($320B mkt. cap)
• Tech leaders like ASML ($261B mkt. cap)
