Europe Stocks End Mixed

European stock markets finished mixed on Monday. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index gained 9.3 points, or 0.21%, to 4,524.30. Shares were aided by a Bank of England official's comments that U.K. economic growth prospects are the best since 1995, reports S&P's MarketScope. Laura Ashley shares were higher, although Burberry denied it planned a bid for the company.

In Paris, the CAC 40 was off its earlier highs, currently down 2.13 points, or 0.06%, to 3,731.15, on some bargain hunting. Wanadoo, Peugot and Renault were higher.

Germany's DAX index ended down 4.64 points, or 0.11%, to 4,068.71. Traders were ignoring a report showing that a European business optimism recovery might have stalled. Deutsche Bank was a bit higher amid takeover rumors circulating among banking stocks. Infineon Technologies was also higher.

Asian markets finished mixed on Monday. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 index gained 148.27 points, or 1.38%, to 10,868.96.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index slipped 103.3 points, or 0.74%, to 13,765.07.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX fell 32.31 points, or 0.37%, to 8,609.62.
