North Korea tensions weigh on European shares but some results shine


Ratcheting political tensions between the United States and North Korea sent European shares south on Wednesday, with all major benchmarks and sectors in the red and investors rushing to gold, while strong results from Scout24 and Novo Nordisk shone. The pan-European STOXX 600 fell 0.5 percent, while euro zone stocks and blue-chips dropped 0.8 percent, following the lead of U.S. and Asian markets which declined after Pyongyang said it was considering plans to attack Guam, which has a large U.S. military base.
