Good Entry Point for Gilead Sciences (GILD)? Not Just Yet, Says Analyst
Gilead Sciences (GILD) notched a first last week, when its antiviral coronavirus treatment Veklury (remdesivir) received full FDA approval.The treatment had previously been granted emergency use authorization (EUA), but the complete go ahead from the regulatory body makes it the first treatment to make it across the finish line.However, ultimately, Raymond James analyst Steven Seedhouse does not expect the long-awaited approval to have the impact investors might hope for."The formal FDA approval doesn't change our estimates or outlook for remdesivir, given it has already been branded standard-of-care prior to formal approval," Seedhouse said. "But the label and approval is pretty much a best case for GILD vs. what could have been post SOLIDARITY results. It remains unclear how frequently Veklury actually gets used going forward. Especially given the myriad post marketing requirements including requirement to more rigorously look at viral shedding and viral load in all samples collected and submit to FDA (which we suspect will show limited or no effect and thus offer no mechanistic support)."Gilead stock has been on a roller coaster ride in 2020. Shares rose dramatically following the pandemic's onset, as hopes were pinned on remdesivir to play its part in the battle against COVID-19.However, questions about the drug's commercial potential and contradicting clinical results, amongst other issues, have sent the share price on a downward trajectory since April's yearly peak.Earlier this month,

SAP Sends Warning for Software Earnings With Dire Forecast
(Bloomberg) -- Dire earnings results at SAP SE wiped out more than 35 billion euros ($41 billion) from the German software company's market value in a matter of minutes, sending a warning to tech investors about the health of the business software industry.In a surprise release late Sunday, SAP, one of Europe's largest tech companies, cut its revenue forecast for the full year and said it expected the fresh wave of Covid-19 lockdowns to hurt demand through the first half of 2021. The results caused shares to fall the most ever in a single day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg since 1989.SAP's collapse caused the wider tech market to drop, with Europe's Stoxx Technology index falling 7.6%, its biggest one-day loss since March. Shares of cloud-applications giant Inc. fell 4.1% at 2:28 p.m. in New York. Oracle Corp. -- SAP's main rival -- dropped 3.9%."SAP is a bellwether stock for European technology and global software," said Citigroup Global Markets analyst Amit Harchandani. "They have an insight into Fortune 500 companies and when SAP tells you they see headwinds, there will be some truth to the fact that some of the customers are challenged and don't have the money to spend."For some investors, SAP's results have called into question the wider assumption that software companies will prosper during the pandemic, due to millions of employees working from home. Many of these companies, which deliver applications or services over the internet, have so far resisted the worst effects of

: SAP U.S. stock drops more than 20% on cut outlook
U.S. shares of SAP SE SAP opened more than 20% lower Monday after the German business software company cut its outlook due to prolonged work-from-home measures from COVID-19. American depositary receipts of SAP were last down 23% at $115.25 following a close of $149.68 on Friday.

Also, because of its move to cloud-based services, SAP said it expects "software licenses revenue to continue to trend lower from 2020 levels."

10 Best European Stocks for an Income-Rich Recovery
Leading wealth managers including BlackRock, Merrill Lynch and Putnam are advising their clients to invest in foreign stocks to take advantage of better values overseas. And the market's best European stocks are one such store of value-priced diversification.

U.S. stocks are closing on all-time highs yet again, and the S&P 500 is trading at nearly 23 times trailing 12-month earnings. Foreign stocks are a bargain by comparison, trading at a P/E of less than 18, according to Morningstar.

Value is just one of many arguments in favor of international investing. For years, wealth advisors have told clients to invest a portion of their funds overseas to diversify portfolios and mitigate risk.

This advice is particularly timely now given that some European countries are recovering more quickly from COVID-19 than the U.S. In addition to individual-country measures, the European Union passed an $880 billion stimulus package; the U.S. continues to argue about its own follow-up plan.

Economists also anticipate a bigger GDP recovery for Europe next year, with growth pegged as high as 6% versus sub-5% growth for the U.S. Another factor is the present weakness of the U.S. dollar, which makes European stocks and other foreign equities more attractive for U.S. investors.  

Here are 10 of the best European stocks you can buy right now. They offer a combination of growth prospects and value. Better still, many of them offer healthy dividend yields, and some are even members of the European Dividend Aristocrats.
