    Cocktail of trade worries, poor data, Brexit hit European shares

    European shares sank on Thursday as the latest round of U.S.-China trade friction and a soft set of business surveys sapped investors' risk appetite, while pressure on British Prime Minister Theresa to quit added to Brexit concerns. The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed 1.4% lower, with Germany's traditionally trade-sensitive DAX down 1.8%, while Italian shares slumped more than 2%. As investors worried the U.S.-China trade feud was fast turning into a technology-focused cold war, the latest evidence of its impact on growth came from Germany.

    Turmoil over future of PM May, Brexit bruises British stocks

    As the pound fell, the FTSE 250 lost 1.4% to hit its lowest point since March 29, when Britain was originally scheduled to exit the European Union.

    U.S. Activist Pushes Legoland Operator Merlin to Go Private

    Shareholders in Legoland and Alton Towers operator Merlin Entertainments Plc have had a rocky ride since the Danish family that owns the Lego toy brand listed the company in 2013. Terrorist attacks and Brexit have clouded prospects for a business that relies on steady growth in visitor numbers to turn a profit on heavy investments. ValueAct Capital, which lobbied for change at Britain’s Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc, said in an open letter to Merlin’s board on Thursday that it needs to spend more on new hotels and Legoland parks and that’s hard to do as a public company when capital returns are falling.

    Global risk appetite was jolted after Reuters reported Alphabet Inc's Google suspended some business with Huawei, while Apple Inc supplier Lumentum Holdings Inc said it had discontinued all shipments to Huawei.

    European shares under pressure from chipmakers, Ryanair, trade worries

    A Ryanair profit warning pressured airline and travel stocks and chipmakers slid after Infineon halted shipments to Huawei as U.S.-China trade tensions kept a lid on the STOXX 600 at the open on Monday. The pan-European index was down 0.1% by 0735 GMT with most indices in the red after China struck a more aggressive tone in its trade war with the United States on Friday, although crude prices lifted London's oil-heavy FTSE 100. Europe's largest low-cost carrier Ryanair landed at the bottom of the STOXX 600 after issuing a profit warning as it grapples with overcapacity, Brexit and delays in delivery of the Boeing 737 Max.
