European Stock Futures Decline; L’Oreal, Bayer Might Move


13/04/2012 10:13 AST

European stock futures fell as investors awaited a U.S report that may show the cost of living in America rose at a slower pace in March and as China’s growth eased more than forecast last quarter. Asian stocks climbed while U.S. index futures retreated.

L’Oreal SA, the world’s largest cosmetics maker, may move after first-quarter sales topped analyst estimates. Bayer AG (BAYN), Germany’s largest drugmaker, might be active as it was said to pay at least $110 million to settle about 500 lawsuits over claims that a line of birth-control pills caused blood clots. EON AG may move after Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported it will probably see interested parties reducing their offers for its energy-from-waste unit in the next round.
