    European shares hit by fresh Italian scare, Daimler tariff hit

    European shares ended the day deep into the red after an early bounced on Thursday, shaken by the appointment of eurosceptics at key positions in the Italian parliament and after German carmaker Daimler warned higher tariffs would hit profits. "The standoff between the U.S. and China is not any closer to being resolved and traders are fearful President Trump will turn up the heat on the EU (European Union) next," said David Madden, a market analyst at CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX.L - news) .

    [$$] European Equities Market Talk Roundup

    The bank says it has “sensed a desire” from BAE to raise its self-funded research-and-development budget, possibly by about GBP100 million, partly to address near-term opportunities similar to the amphibious assault vehicle contract, which is potentially worth $1.2 billion. The catch is that such an increase in R&D will weigh on the company’s earnings growth and consequently BAE has been unwilling to commit to the expenditure, Jefferies says.

    BAT Hit by Heated-Tobacco Slowdown as Japan Growth Stalls

    British American Tobacco Plc said the rapid growth of tobacco-heating products in Japan has slowed, adding to doubts that the category can offset the decline in traditional cigarettes. Market share gains of BAT’s Glo device have stalled over the last seven weeks, after the tobacco-heating product hit a 4.3 percent share of Japan’s tobacco market during its first six months on sale, the London-based company said Tuesday. The outlook for next-generation products had become cloudier after Philip Morris International Inc. said in April that it was struggling to persuade older Japanese smokers to switch to its heated-tobacco device, iQOS.
