Credit Suisse has turned bullish on UK stocks, especially those with international exposure, as the chances of the country crashing out of the European Union fall and some equities look cheap compared with foreign counterparts, it said on Friday. Credit Suisse is the first major bank to change its view on UK equities amid rising hopes the country will avoid a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31 after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's hardline stance suffered a series of defeats in recent weeks. Since Johnson won the top job in July, Britain's Brexit crisis has spun more furiously, leaving investors and allies bewildered by an array of decisions that have pushed the once stable political system to its limits.

The FTSE 100 index tumbled on Wednesday amid sharp falls in oil majors as investors priced in an overnight slide in crude to one-week lows, while downbeat trading updates knocked chemicals group Johnson Matthey and miner Fresnillo.
