European Stocks Rose After Oil, Metal Prices Gains

European stocks rose for the first time in three days after gains in energy and metal prices pushed commodity producers

European stocks rose for the first time in three days after gains in energy and metal prices pushed commodity producers higher and drugmaker Merck KGaA reported earnings that topped analysts' estimates.

BP Plc and Xstrata Plc led a rally by energy and mining companies after oil rose in New York and nickel climbed to a record in London. Alstom SA gained after sales rose on demand for railcars from Asia.

The Dow Jones Stoxx 600 Index climbed 0.5 percent to 373.61 at 10:57 a.m. in London. The Stoxx 50 and the Euro Stoxx 50, a measure for the 13 nations sharing the euro, added 0.5 percent.
