LONDON -- European benchmark indexes have been trading flat to slightly high this morning, with action somewhat muted ahead of the EU rate decision at 9:45 a.m. EDT. Expectations are now for a 25-basis-point cut to a record low of 0.75%. This comes ahead of the key U.S. nonfarm payroll data tomorrow, which is coming more into focus this side of the Independence Day holiday. So far, U.S. markets are showing a similar lack of direction in early premarket trade, with the S&P 500
Despite this lack of direction, however, there are still a number of names that are outperforming. Here are three ADRs set to beat the S&P today.
