By Helen ReidLONDON (Reuters) - European shares staged a partial recovery from a slump in the previous session as investors surveyed a mixed bag of results from some of the region's biggest industrial names. The pan-European STOXX 600 gained 0.2 percent by 0830 GMT, in line with euro zone stocks.
Britain's FTSE 100 underperformed. Other country benchmarks were set to end the month on a positive note. Results were centre stage with some disappointments causing big share price drops, with investors particularly impatient with earnings misses in.
