EON SE and RWE AG were among the biggest gainers on Germany’s benchmark stock index as a government commission reviewing the nation’s nuclear energy exit was said to favor utilities making a one-time insurance payment to help cover clean-up costs.

EON increased as much as 4.2 percent, and RWE climbed 3.6 percent. The DAX index was up 1.9 percent in its first advance in three days.
