European stocks close

European stocks fell after a U.S. report that showed weakness in the services industry, while factory orders rose faster than forecast.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index lost 0.2 percent to 326.98 at the close of trading in London. The benchmark gauge climbed 5.8 percent from its Dec. 13 low through Jan. 3.

A U.S. report showed that the Institute for Supply Management’s non-manufacturing index fell to 53 last month from 53.9 in November. Economists in a Bloomberg survey had forecast a reading of 54.7. A separate release showed factory orders in the world’s biggest economy climbed 1.8 percent in November. The median economist estimate called for a 1.7 percent increase.

In China, a purchasing managers’ index of the services industry fell to 50.9 in December from 52.5 the previous month, data from HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics showed. Readings above 50 indicate expansion. Figures from the National Bureau of Statistics and the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing last week showed services in the world’s second-biggest economy fell in December to the slowest in four months.

National benchmark indexes rose in eight of the 14 western-European markets open today. The U.K.’s FTSE 100 was little changed and Germany’s DAX slipped 0.1 percent. France’s CAC 40 fell 0.5 percent. Stock markets in Sweden, Finland, Austria and Greece were closed today for the Epiphany holiday.

Remy Cointreau fell 2.1 percent to 57.70 euros. Natixis lowered its rating on the producer of Remy Martin cognac to neutral from buy after Frederic Pflanz resigned as chief executive officer last week.

Edenred dropped 5.5 percent to 22.95 euros after Natixis downgraded the shares to neutral from buy. The brokerage said currencies will weigh on company earnings. The company, which sells vouchers for meals and services, got 49 percent of its revenue from Latin America and the Caribbeans in 2012, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

John Wood Group Plc slid 3.8 percent to 652 pence after Deutsche Bank AG cut its rating on the shares to hold from buy, citing a lack of possible factors for gains and limited potential for earnings to grow in the next year.

Ziggo climbed 3.6 percent to 33.77 euros. Liberty Global, controlled by billionaire John Malone, and Ziggo plan to announce a deal as early as the middle of this month, according to people familiar with the matter. The two companies are finalizing the acquisition price and other terms, they said. Ziggo spokesman Martijn Jonker and Liberty Global spokesman Marcus Smith declined to comment.

Centamin Plc rallied 2.9 percent to 46.55 pence after the gold miner said preliminary results indicate full-year production of 356,943 ounces, up 36 percent from 2012. That exceeded the company’s previous forecast of 320,000 ounces.
