German Stocks Rise As Daimler, Siemens Increase


German stocks have reportedly stepped up, due to the gains by Siemens AG and Daimler AG which helped to overcome the financial shares, on concern that the European Union’s whooping $1 trillion emergency lending plan will not help much in getting a resolution for the region’s debt crisis.


Reports say that Siemens AG rallied at 2 percent, while Daimler AG led carmakers higher. In addition to this, Europe’s largest exchange Deutsche Boerse AG, dropped 1.5 percent after the first-quarter profit fell short of the analysts’ estimates.

According to Business week: “The DAX Index gained 0.3 percent to 6,037.71. The benchmark gauge yesterday surged 5.3 percent, the biggest gain in 13 months, after the European Union pledged almost $1 trillion in loans to end a debt crisis that began in Greece and has seen the benchmark gauge for German shares fall 5.9 percent since this year’s high on April 26. The broader HDAX Index also rose 0.3 percent today.”
