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

Wall Street experienced a decline on Tuesday as concerns over central banks potentially keeping high interest rates for longer than anticipated weighed heavily on the market. The biggest rise was seen in energy companies, benefiting from a tightening oil market. However, tensions in the oil market also contributed to this growth, with companies like Phillips 66 making headlines for their plans to produce renewable fuels.

The bearish sentiment on Wall Street spread to European markets later in the day. Despite this, some oil and gas companies on Wall Street saw increases in stock prices due to these factors, including Phillips 66, Occidental Petroleum, and ExxonMobil.

On the other hand, concerns over potential escalations in the Middle East following Israel’s airstrike on the Iranian embassy in Syria added to fears of disruptions in oil supply chains. Additionally, Mexico’s state oil company, Pemex, signaling 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 also 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.
