SAP gained 3.9% following a faster-than-expected revenue growth in the third quarter. Logitech (NASDAQ) International rose 4.8% following a confirmation of its full-year outlook by the computer peripherals manufacturer.

UBS gained 3.5% after UBS beat market expectations for quarterly profits due to an increase in new money inflows.

Covestro, a German chemical maker, fell 1.9% following a third consecutive cut in its 2022 earnings outlook. The company blamed high raw material and gas prices for the European energy crisis.
