(Reuters) – European stocks hovered near record highs on Wednesday as investors awaited data on services sector activity for the region, while optimism over speedy vaccination drives and a weaker pound helped UK equities outperform.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 0.2% by 0704 GMT after closing at an all-time high of 435.26 points on Tuesday. The German DAX and France’s CAC 40 were flat.

UK’s exporter-heavy FTSE 100 gained 0.3% as a weaker pound lifted the dollar earners, while the domestically focussed midcap index inched towards a record high as Britain began the roll-out of Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA)’s COVID-19 vaccine. (L)

Recent market debutant Deliveroo Holdings rose 2.5% to 288 pence in its first day of unrestricted trading where retail traders take part. It has shed almost 28% since last week when it priced its initial public offering at 390 pence.
