Upbeat broker notes pushed shares in Victrex and Delivery Hero to the top of the STOXX, sending both shares up more than 4 percent.
Akzo Nobel rose 1.4 percent after a source-based Financial Times report said that U.S. private equity giant Apollo had teamed up with the biggest Dutch pension fund to buy the group’s 10 billion-euro speciality chemicals unit.
Heineken however fell 3.4 percent after the world’s second largest brewer lowered its margin growth target, blaming a volatile market environment and an acquisition in Brazil.
Telecoms firm SES fell 7 percent after it announced management changes.
