Ignoring all the noise about the troika, haircuts, insurance policy; almost all the quantitve indicators indicate a very cheap Europena market. The numbers are as of October 3rd, 2011 (markets are up ~10% in the US and Europe since then). I a going to do some comps to US market valuation on that date.

Overall it seems the market valuations are far cheaper in Europe than the US.
Below is a table, which I put together (European wide numbers exclude financial co.s, country specific numbers include them).
