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

The stock market is experiencing a decline due to concerns over central banks potentially keeping high interest rates for longer than anticipated. On Tuesday, the key stock market indices, S&P 500, Dow Jones, and Nasdaq 100, all saw decreases. The bearish sentiment on Wall Street spread to European markets later in the day.

However, some positivity was seen in energy companies amidst the red rates. Companies like Phillips 66, Occidental Petroleum, and ExxonMobil saw increases in their stock prices. The rise in oil company stocks can be attributed to tensions in the oil market and companies’ plans to produce renewable fuels.

Concerns over potential escalations in the Middle East also contributed to fears of disruptions in oil supply chains. Additionally, Mexico’s state oil company Pemex signaled potential cuts in crude oil exports 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 experienced losses. 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.
