European stocks close:

European stocks dropped for a second day as German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble damped optimism that Greece will get more time to cut its debt and as bond yields climbed in Spain.

Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (BBVA) slid 1.8 percent as lenders retreated across Europe. Royal Ahold NV lost 3.6 percent after the retailer reported earnings that missed some analysts’ estimates. Petropavlovsk Plc (POG) tumbled 16 percent to 394 pence, its biggest slide since 2008, after reporting a 90 percent drop in first- half net income to $11 million as interest payments and depreciation costs dragged down earnings.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index (SXXP) retreated 0.6 percent to 267.69 at the close.

Stocks fell as Germany’s Schaeuble said that allowing Greece more time to meet its debt obligations would not solve the country’s problems and would increase costs for creditors.
