Eurostoxx 50 : European stocks skid on inflation angst as oil jumps

(Reuters) - Automakers, retail and travel shares fell more than 2.5% on Wednesday, leading declines across all major sectors in Europe as soaring oil and gas prices intensified concerns inflation will dent economic growth.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 1%, giving back almost all of the gains made on Tuesday.

Dutch and British wholesale gas prices hit record highs on Tuesday amid wider energy market price hikes.

"The euro-area is one of the biggest losers (from the spike in natural gas prices) in the developed world with a current account deterioration potentially approaching 2% of GDP," Deutsche Bank said in a note.

"Recent moves could potentially wipe out Europe's trade surplus if they persist."

A global energy crunch, labour shortage and other supply chain constraints have weighed on a global economy recovery when major central banks are considering easing the massive pandemic-era stimulus. The STOXX 600 is down about 5.5% since hitting a record high in August.

"The question is whether central banks are going to act on this from an inflation perspective, which is set to go higher, or from a growth perspective, which is set to go lower," said Bert Colijn, senior economist at ING.

Germany's DAX dropped 1.5% after data showed German industrial orders fell more than expected in August on weaker demand from abroad following two months of unusually strong gains.

With the third-quarter earnings season looming, analysts are anticipating a near 46% rise in profit for companies on STOXX 600, boosted by energy and industrial companies, according to Refinitiv IBES data. That follows a 152.6% jump in the second quarter and a 25% decline in the year-ago quarter.

Tesco jumped almost 6% as Britain's biggest retailer raised its full-year outlook and launched a 500-million-pound share buyback programme.

Britain's HSBC rose 3.4% after UBS upgraded the stock to "buy", while Germany's Commerzbank gained 1.9% after the wider sector rallied 3.5% in the previous session.

Laggards included German software firm TeamViewer which sank 25% after it reported quarterly results below its own expectations and cut full year guidance.

Deutsche Telekom fell 5.4% after Goldman Sachs sold shares worth 1.58 billion euros ($1.83 billion) in a SoftBank structured finance deal.
