    Europe GDP Heats Up

    EU GDP expanded 0.3% in Q4, slightly faster than the 0.2% forecasted. Annualized growth hit 0.5%, its first read in 2 years. There were few declines across the region, and all the big nations had positive growth. There higher-than-expected reads in Germany and France. The data is quite encouraging for the single-currency bloc that is struggling to spur economic recovery.
