LONDON (Reuters) - European shares tumbled from a six-week high on Monday as industrials and tech stocks slipped and disappointing earnings, including from brewer Heineken, dented investors' confidence.
The pan-European STOXX 600 <.STOXX> fell 0.3 percent, starting a packed earnings week on the back foot after sealing on Friday its strongest weekly gain in nearly five weeks. Germany's DAX <.GDAXI> edged down 0.2 percent.
Shares in Heineken
The tech sector <.SX8P> fell 0.8 percent, reflecting moves in Asia and Wall Street after shocking drops in big tech names Twitter and Facebook last week shook investors' belief in tech's resilience.
Another faller after earnings was Siemens Healthineers
France's Air Liquide
Several earnings updates were, however, supportive.
German industrial machinery group GEA
British bookmaker GVC
And Lloyd's of London insurance underwriter Hiscox
