    • For Thursday, Europe stocks went up because of defensive stocks. US drugmakers will also go up in coming days.

      Also flying high were drugmakers, with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L: Quote, Profile, Research) up 5.3 percent, AstraZeneca (AZN.L: Quote, Profile, Research) 6.6 percent higher and Shire (SHP.L: Quote, Profile, Research) up 3.1 percent.
