    Political risk hits Milan bourse, weak euro backs European shares

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - Italy's two anti-system parties' progress to form a coalition and free up billions of euros for tax cuts and welfare scared off investors and hit the Milan bourse on Wednesday while a weak euro provided support to the broader European market. The pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX) index rose 0.2 percent, hovering around its highest level since early February but Italy's FTSE MIB (.FTMIB) fell 2.3 percent, its worst fall since the election took place in early March. Italian banks , which are seen as a proxy for political risk in the country due to notably to their government bond holdings, fell 3.68 percent as borrowing costs jumped.

    U.K. stocks end at 4-month high as Burberry, Paddy Power rally

    U.K. stocks advanced Wednesday, finishing at a four-month high as shares of Burberry and Paddy Power Betfair climbed after well-received corporate updates. The FTSE 100 index (^FTSE) rose 0.2% to 7,734.20, its highest close since Jan. 16, according to FactSet data. A weaker pound tends to boost the FTSE 100 as the index’s components make the bulk of their earnings overseas, with a softening sterling lifting revenues when converted back into the U.K. currency.

    Micro Focus says early $40 million contract to help first half revenues

    Britain's leading software company Micro Focus International (MCRO.L), reeling from a major profit warning in March, said a new $40 million (29 million pounds) licensing deal would help bolster its first-half revenue. The FTSE 100 company, which manages older software for customers including banks and airlines, announced the departure of its chief executive in March as it cut its revenue outlook due to problems integrating assets from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE.N). Stripping out the impact of the new contract, Micro Focus said its underlying revenue was still towards the better end of the guidance range.

    Sterling strength, geopolitics outweigh M&A activity on FTSE

    A spate of dealmaking and strong financial stocks were outweighed by anxiety over the Syrian conflict and a rising pound on Thursday, keeping Britain's FTSE 100 flat. Britain's leading stock index (.FTSE) ended the day up 0.02 percent at 7,258.34 points, lagging European indices which gained in a recovery rally as some saw an easing of tensions over possible U.S. military action in Syria. "You've got the trade concerns on one side ... and you've got the threat of a military conflict in Syria, so while that's top of the agenda it's hard so see how the market can pave a road to recovery," Jasper Lawler, head of research at London Capital Group, said.

    Inflation relief helps boost FTSE 100, Fenner surges on Michelin takeover

    Britain's FTSE 100 index gained on Tuesday, with banks leading the way after data showed a small slowdown in inflation, while Fenner shares surged after a takeover offer from tyre maker Michelin. In the second approach for a UK mid-cap firm in as many days, Fenner (FENR.L) jumped 24 percent to the top of the FTSE 250 after France's Michelin (MICP.PA) made a 1.2 billion-pound ($1.7 billion) bid for the engineering company. "Our first take is that the deal looks good and offers a healthy premium especially in light of Fenner's very strong recent share price performance," said Stifel analysts.
