FTSE 100 rises by the most in a week, but Shell shares struggle

Shell posted a rise in quarterly profit Thursday, but shares fell. U.K. stocks climbed Thursday, rising alongside a leap in European stocks, with the moves coming a day after London-listed blue-chips broke their longest winning streak in nearly a year. The FTSE 100 index (^FTSE) rose 0.6% to end at 7,421.43, fighting its way out of the red.
