European stocks open higher as trade fears ease; Smiths Group falls 9%

European stocks opened higher Thursday as investors shrugged off worries over the U.S.-China trade dispute.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 edged up 0.4 percent, with all sectors in positive territory. Among the bourses, Italy’s FTSE MIB led the upward charge, over 0.8 percent higher.

In dealmaking news, ride-hailing firm Uber is reportedly in early discussions to buy food delivery upstart Deliveroo for several billion dollars. Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the plans, said any offer would need to be considerably higher than Deliveroo’s last reported valuation of more than $ 2 billion. Shares of listed competitors Just Eat and Delivery Hero fell on the news, down 6.5 percent and 1.9 percent respectively.
