European and Asian stocks build on Tuesday’s gains though investors in Paris mark Orange down after France’s leading telecoms operator says it’s studied how it can participate in the country’s telecoms consolidation but ruled out making a move for now. The announcement means it won’t be bidding for the telecoms unit of Bouygues, the No. 3 player, whose shares also fell.
