After the excellent performance of the stock markets last year, the author said that the stock market outlook for 2020 will be more modest, especially since valuations are very high now, especially in the United States where the upside potential is lower.
From this point of view, BFT’s portfolio management estimates say European stocks should be preferred because of the good performance of economic growth in the euro area, the strength of their balance sheets and their valuations which are still far from excessive.
2- Do interest rates rise?
The newspaper said that debt with negative interest amounted to a record size at 18 trillion euros in mid-2019, but the stock allocated to trading with interest less than 0% fell at the end of the year to 11 thousand billion euros under the influence of the rise in interest rates, and the return of the yield of government bonds in France for 10 years Years to the positive zone after hitting a low of "0.44% -" in August.
In 2020, most specialists believe that financing costs in Europe may be at their lowest levels and therefore have a slight bounce potential, as USB believes that prices will start to decline again at first.
And the interest rate for 10 years in Germany will drop to "0.75% -" in the second quarter, due to the US economic slowdown at the beginning of the year, the inflation still slow in Europe, and the European Central Bank policy that is still comfortable.

Euronext CEO Stefan Boujnah says they are convinced of this, as "nearly half of the individuals who bought the shares of the French games company have opened stock accounts for the first time ... individuals are willing to take small risks and thus invest in stocks."
6- Will the activists continue to break through in France?
The newspaper said that 10 French companies were a target of activists in 2019, noting that activists should pay more attention to France, at a time when the number of French companies at risk increased, and therefore potential targets.
The newspaper said that the tendencies - demonstrated by the Paris market for six months - towards imposing additional regulatory restrictions on activists in 2020, will not likely prevent this money from coming to France.
