Milan, Sha’ban 2, 1438, Apr 28, 2017, SPA– European stocks fell in early trade as investors sold for profit at a strong weekend and focus on corporate results as political concerns eased, while UBS surged on better-than-expected earnings.
The Stoxx 600 European index shed 0.1 percent by 0719 GMT, extending the decline after the previous session’s losses, while the British Financial Times 100 index also fell 0.1 percent and France’s CAC 40 was flat.
Despite today’s losses, the European index is up more than 2 percent this week, approaching a 20-month high as new liquidity flows into the region’s shares.
