European stocks advanced



European stocks advanced to an almost three-week high as American President Barack Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney to win a second term.

Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney, winning at least 303 electoral votes in yesterday’s election with 270 needed for the victory. With one state -- Florida -- yet to be decided, Romney had 206 electoral votes.

The president faces a partisan divide in Congress, with Republicans retaining their House majority, while Democrats kept control of the Senate. A looming “fiscal cliff” of tax increases and spending cuts will start in January if Congress and the White House don’t act before then.

In China, Vice President Xi Jinping was appointed the secretary general of the 18th Chinese Communist Party Congress, a procedural move that signals he’ll replace President Hu Jintao as head of the party and government in the world’s second- largest economy. The congress will be held Nov. 8-14.

Approval of the legislation is the first of the parliamentary votes required by Nov. 12 to obtain a 31 billion- euro ($40 billion) portion of international aid.

BNP Paribas rose 5.1 percent to 41.10 euros, contributing the most to the Stoxx 600’s gain.

Hochtief surged 6.3 percent to 41.02 euros, its biggest gain since Sept. 14. Germany’s largest builder reiterated its full-year profit targets and reported a third-quarter pretax profit of 354.7 million euros, compared with a loss of 101.6 million euros a year earlier.

The company also said its costs will increase after power disruptions at the Tongon mine in Ivory Coast.
