European stock close

European stocks rose, rebounding from their longest streak of weekly losses in 14 months, as investors awaited this week's Federal Reserve meeting for signs on the pace of stimulus reduction.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index rose 0.8 percent to 293.31 at 4:30 p.m. in London, for the first back-to-back gains this month. The gauge fell 1.5 percent last week and has lost 5.6 percent since May 22 when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the central bank could pare quantitative easing if the U.S. economy improves sustainably.

The Federal Open Market Committee will hold its policy meeting tomorrow and the day after, with Bernanke explaining his stance after the decision on June 19. At stake is the Fed's monthly purchase of $85 billion of Treasuries and mortgage securities and the target rate for overnight lending between banks, which has been kept at almost zero since December 2008.

A report showed that manufacturing in the New York, northern New Jersey and southern Connecticut region unexpectedly increased this month. The Fed Bank of New York's general economic index rose to 7.84 in June, from minus 1.4 in May. Economists had predicted a reading of zero, the dividing line between expansion and contraction.

Belgacom SA rose 1.9 percent to 17.54 euros. Exane BNP Paribas raised its rating of Belgium's largest telephone company to neutral from underperform. Belgacom's Scarlet brand last week introduced an 8 euro-per-month mobile-service plan.
