European stock close

European stocks were little changed, after a two-day rally, as retailers fell and investors weighed U.S. data on economic growth and jobless claims.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slipped 0.1 percent after jumping 2 percent in the past two days. The gauge is down 2 percent this month, its biggest decline since June, amid tension between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

“We’re still very positive on the European rebound,” said Louis de Fels, a Paris-based fund manager at Raymond James Financial Inc., which oversees about $53 billion. “It’s true that if the problem in Russia continues, it could be very bad for the market. It’s very tough, so we will closely monitor what’s happening and stay focused on stock picking.”

The U.S. and the European Union have imposed financial sanctions on Russian and Ukrainian officials as well associates of President Vladimir Putin, leaving open the threat of broader measures targeting Russia’s energy and financial sectors.

President Barack Obama warned yesterday that the crisis in Ukraine may escalate, saying that indifference to Russia’s annexation of Crimea would ignore the lessons of two world wars.

A report showed U.S. gross domestic product grew at a 2.6 percent annualized rate from October through December, more than the previously estimated 2.4 percent gain reported last month. The median forecast of economists surveyed called for a 2.7 percent increase.

A separate release from the Labor Department showed initial jobless claims unexpectedly fell to 311,000 in the week ended March 22, compared with a median forecast of 323,000.
