Europe: Energy shares lead broad market gains

By Chris Fournier Bloomberg News

LONDON European shares rose on Monday, led by energy companies, as crude oil prices approached a three-month high.

Friso Rengers, a fund manager at ABN AMRO Asset Management in Amsterdam, said he was not surprised that oil stocks were leading the advance.
"This bull market for energy will last as long as the supply and demand situation is out of whack," he said. "That'll be years."

RWE led gains among utility shares on reports that Terra Firma Capital Partners planned to buy the company's British water unit for £8 billion.

The Dow Jones Stoxx 600 index added 0.70 point to 317.57, with 10 of the 18 industry groups rising. The Stoxx 50 added 4.37 points to 3,425.74, with Vodafone Group limiting gains. The Euro Stoxx 50, a gauge for the 12 countries using the euro, rose 15.16 points to 3,644.41.

The Stoxx 600 oil & gas index is the top performer so far this year, up 6.6 percent, almost triple the 2.4 percent gain on the broader measure.

BP, Europe's biggest oil company, advanced 12 pence to close at 666 pence. Total, the region's largest oil refiner, rose E1.60 to E223.50. Total said its refining margin, or the profit made from turning each barrel of crude oil into products like gasoline, increased 2.7 percent, to $45.50 a ton, in the fourth quarter from the preceding quarter.
Technip, Europe's largest oil-services company, added 80 cents to E56.50.

Benchmark indexes rose in all 18 West European markets except Luxembourg.
The DAX gained 31.55 points to 5,514.64. The FTSE 100 added 29.20 points to 5,740.20, and the CAC 40 rose 5.56 points to 4,856.09.

Indexes rising steadily

European indexes this month reached their highest level since 2001 on speculation that earnings growth would continue even as the global economy cools and interest rates rise. Analysts expect profit growth at Stoxx 600 companies to slow to an average 9 percent this year, from an estimated 22 percent in 2005, according to forecasts compiled by FactSet Research Systems.
