European stock markets mostly fell on Friday, as investors digested mixed company results, but Paris advanced amid a rosier outlook, analysts said.
Many investors took their cue from Wall Street, which was muted overnight in the face of disappointing jobs and consumer data, dealers said.
In late morning deals, London's FTSE 100 index of leading shares dropped 0.17 percent to 6,576.83 points and Frankfurt's DAX 30 fell 0.56 percent to 8,252.26 points.
In Paris, the CAC 40 added 0.54 percent to 3,977.58 points compared with Thursday's close.
