    GLOBAL MARKETS-Earnings and commodities keep stocks bulls happy

    World stocks stayed near record highs on Tuesday, as a flurry of U.S. earnings and a rally in commodity markets helped underpin one of the most durable bull runs of recent history. Stronger profits from investment bank Morgan Stanley and healthcare majors Johnson & Johnson and UnitedHealth looked set to keep Wall Street's rally intact when it reopens after largely flat morning on Europe's big bourses. It had been lifted overnight, along with interest rate-sensitive 2-year Treasury yields, by reports that U.S. President Donald Trump might pick Stanford University economist John Taylor to lead the Federal Reserve after Janet Yellen’s term ends next year.

    Pearson agrees deal to insure third of pension scheme risk

    Publisher Pearson (PSON.L) said on Tuesday it had agreed a deal to insure a third of its pension scheme liabilities totalling 1.2 billion pounds with Legal & General (LGEN.L) and Aviva (AV.L). The deal "substantially reduces" the risk that Pearson would be unable to fund future retiree benefits and was agreed at no further cost to the company, it said in a nine-month trading update. Under the so-called 'buy-in bulk annuity', the insurers take on some of the risk of the pension scheme, which remains with the company.

    Biggest gains for European stocks since Macron's first round win

    A run higher for energy shares and miners, as well as strong updates from Norwegian lender DNB, and a more dovish tone from U.S. Federal Reserve Chief Yellen, helped drive European shares up on Wednesday, though renewed pain for publisher Pearson weighed on the media sector. European shares made early gains and were given a second wind in afternoon trading when Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen dampened expectations of more than one interest rate hike this year.
