European Stock Markets Affected by Decline on Wall Street, with Oil Companies Serving as a Bright Spot

Wall Street’s decline is being attributed to concerns over central banks keeping high interest rates for longer than anticipated. The energy sector has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of this tightening oil market, with companies like Phillips 66, Occidental Petroleum, and ExxonMobil experiencing increases in stock prices.

Meanwhile, concerns over potential escalations in the Middle East following Israel’s airstrike on the Iranian embassy in Syria have added to fears of disruptions in oil supply chains. Additionally, Mexico’s state oil company, Pemex, signaling potential cuts in crude oil exports has further fueled apprehensions about oil supply.

In terms of specific stock movements, companies in the health sector like Humana and CVS Health saw declines while technology companies such as AMD and Nvidia also experienced losses. On the other hand, electric car manufacturer Tesla faced challenges as its first-quarter delivery volume fell short of market expectations marking its lowest delivery volume since the third quarter of 2022.
