    European shares are expected to start the week on a softer footing amid fresh uncertainty
over Sino-U.S. trade talks, with futures pointing to losses of around 0.2-0.3% for major
euro-zone benchmarks while a weaker pound could help the FTSE outperform.   
    On the corporate front, eyes on the travel sector after the world's oldest travel firm
Thomas Cook  TCG.L  collapsed, entering compulsory liquidation and leaving hundreds of thousands
of travellers stranded. Thomas Cook shares have been suspended with immediate effect. 
    Two traders said travel operator TUI  TUIGn.DE  could benefit from the demise of its rival
and sees TUI shares opening up 4%. Eyes also on airlines, which could be supported as Thomas
Cook’s collapse is expected to remove overcapacity in the sector.
    But package holiday provider On The Beach  OTB.L  has warned of a one-time charge as it
makes alternate arrangements for passengers affected by the shutdown. Other stocks linked to
tourism such as Amadeus  AMA.MC , Melia  MEL.MC  and NH HOTEL  NHH.MC  will also be on
investors' radars.
    Elmos Semiconductor  ELGG.DE  is seen rising as much as 5% after it agreed to sell Silicon
Micro, while German real estate company Vonovia  VNAn.DE  could be hit after it agreed to buy
Swedish Hembla from Blackstone. Still in dealmaking, Bloomberg reported that private equity firm
Advent is in talks to join Bain in its takeover bid for Germany's Osram  OSRn.DE , a move that
could further fuel the bidding war with AMS  AMS.S  for the lighting group. 
    A profit warning from Deutz  DEZG.DE  is seen sending shares in the engine maker down 5%.   
Marks & Spencer Group Plc  MKS.L  is seen under pressure after its CFO stepped down after little
more than a year. In the battered banking sector, Spanish banks could benefit after S&P’s
upgraded the country's credit rating.

    European shares are expected to start the week on a weaker footing following losses in Asia
overnight and ahead of the latest flash PMI data for services and manufacturing. 
    Spreadbetters at IG expect London's FTSE to open 6 points lower at 7,339, Frankfurt's DAX to
open 32 points lower at 12,437, and Paris' CAC to open 15 points lower at 5,676. 
     Most Asian share markets fell as investors waited for more clarity on the Sino-U.S. trade
talks after recent negotiations.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N26E0OR
