European Stocks to Watch: BMW

Shares in BMW rose 1.7% on speculation it could buy Swedish automaker Volvo from Ford Motor, according to reports on Swedish magazine Gotenborgs Posten’s Web site citing undisclosed sources.

Shares in Ford rose 0.6%, supporting an opinion held by brokerage Merck Finck that Volvo is an under-developed brand and could hold further upside potential for any potential bidder, Dow Jones reported.

BMW is likely to be cautious however, following its previous acquisition of U.K. automaker Rover, which failed to materially help the German automaker.
