A run higher for energy shares and miners, as well as strong updates from Norwegian lender DNB, and a more dovish tone from United States Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen, helped to drive European shares up Wednesday – although renewed pain for the publisher Pearson weighed upon the media sector.Norwegian lender DNB led the banking sector higher, up 5.7 percent after its second-quarter earnings came in significantly above forecasts, and helped by a rise in lending margins and lower losses on its portfolio.With the European second quarter results season just around the corner, earnings are expected to increase by over 9 percent from the same period in 2016, which would be a rise of over 6 percent excluding the energy sector, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S estimates.
