LONDON--Investors tracking the eurozone's health will next week look out for preliminary readings of November's Purchasing Managers Index, due Wednesday. Eurozone factories had their most active month for almost three years in October, and raised their prices for the first time in more than a year, suggesting the bloc's modest economic recovery may gain some momentum as 2016 draws to a close. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal expect that the eurozone's manufacturing activity continued to grow at a sustained rate this month.

Investors will also pay attention to the final reading of Germany's third-quarter economic growth, due Thursday. Initial readings showed that Europe's largest economy slowed more sharply than expected in the third quarter, undermined by a chronic weakness in investment spending, and analysts expect that these preliminary calculations will be confirmed.
