Global stocks firmer as oil prices plumb 13-month low

LONDON (Reuters) – World stock markets ticked higher on Wednesday as brighter corporate results offset gloomy economic news from Asia and as oil prices plumbed 13-month lows as ample supply offset disruption risks posed by tensions in Iraq and Libya.

European shares gained ground, helped in part by forecast-beating results from bellwethers such as Swiss Life – whose stock jumped 3.5 percent after the open.
