    GLOBAL MARKETS-Earnings weigh on European stocks, sterling lower before Brexit votes

    European shares edged lower on Tuesday as talk of progress in China-U.S. trade talks was offset by mixed corporate earnings, while sterling retreated ahead of another vote on Brexit. The broad European STOXX slipped 0.3%, and MSCI's world equity index, which tracks shares in 47 countries, was flat at 0.02% lower.

    CORRECTED-European shares dip after flood of earnings

    European shares inched lower on Tuesday as investors sifted through a mixed bag of corporate earnings and eyed latest developments on U.S.-China trade talks and Britain's progress towards some form of orderly departure from the European Union. Germany's DAX and Switzerland's SSMI both bucked the trend, with the latter helped by a 1% gain for drugmaker Novartis after it raised its 2019 targets and reported better-than-expected revenue. British household goods maker Reckitt Benckiser was moored to the bottom of the pan-European STOXX index with a 5% fall after it cut its full-year sales forecast for the second time this year.

    RPT-UPDATE 3-New CEO vows improvements as Reckitt cuts sales forecast again

    Reckitt Benckiser's new chief executive promised on Tuesday to step up spending on its brands and improve performance after the British household goods maker cut its full-year sales forecast for a second time. "We are not pleased with where we are and we must consistently deliver," Laxman Narasimhan, who took over from long-time CEO Rakesh Kapoor in September, said on his first call with the investment community. Narasimhan particularly lamented the performance of the firm's Health business, its largest, where a failed product launch, the nearly $17 billion acquisition of Mead Johnson, and a temporary baby milk factory shutdown in the Netherlands, have all caused significant disruption, some lasting to this day.
