depress Euro stocks on skepticismLenders dragged down European equities amid investor skepticism even as stress-test results showed most of the firms would keep an adequate level of capital in a crisis. While Italy's Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA jumped as much as 11 percent as it said it's working on a plan involving private investors to help bolster its finances, it had erased almost off of its gains by the end of the day. UniCredit SpA, the second-worst performer in the exam, sank 9.4 percent. Britain's Barclays PLC, which fared worse than Deutsche Bank AG, dropped 2 percent. The nation's FTSE 100 Index lost 0.5 percent, and the FTSE 250 Index of mid-cap companies dropped 0.8 percent.
