European shares knocked as oil slide hits earnings

LONDON/PARIS, Jan 29 (Reuters) – Weak corporate updates
pegged back European shares on Thursday, as the effects of a
recent rout in oil prices knocked back heavyweight energy firms.

Some traders said the Federal Reserve’s statement on
Wednesday, signalling U.S. rate rises were still likely this
year, was also crimping appetite for shares, although Greek
banks rebounded from record lows hit earlier in the week.

further on Wednesday as concerns mounted about the banking
sector after the election victory of anti-bailout party Syriza

were some upbeat corporate earnings reports and tech companies
received a boost from Apple’s robust profit growth.

Greek banks extend slide to peg back European shares

LONDON/PARIS, Jan 28 (Reuters) – European shares dipped on
Wednesday, with Greek stocks extending the sell-off sparked by
anti-bailout party Syriza’s victory in Sunday’s election.

on Wednesday, hitting a record low. It has plummeted 98.6
percent since late 2009, before Europe’s sovereign debt crisis
started.

Greek vote fails to derail Europe’s ECB-driven share rally

LONDON, Jan 26 (Reuters) – Greek stocks fell in volatile
trade on Monday after anti-austerity party Syriza swept to
victory in Sunday’s election, while other European equities kept
rising on the promise of European Central Bank bond-buying.

Athens’s ATG index fell 3.2 percent, led lower by
banks such as Piraeus Bank, down 17.6 percent, and
Alpha Bank, down 11.6 percent, as investors fretted
about a possible stand-off with Greece’s EU/IMF lenders.
