European Stocks Decline; Stoxx Europe 600 Loses 0.3%

Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) -- European stocks declined, as automakers, chemical companies and travel firms declined.

The benchmark Stoxx Europe 600 Index lost 0.3 percent to 241.39 at 12:58 p.m. in London.

The shares had earlier risen following the release of U.S. unemployment data that showed that the jobless rate in the world’s largest economy fell to 9 percent in October and payrolls increased by 80,000.

Alcatel-Lucent, Bekaert NV and Dexia SA led declining shares.
