European stocks opened mixed Friday morning, as investors digest news from China and await further corporate results.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 was flat in 361.67 shortly after the opening bell, with sectors and major bourses pointing in opposite directions.
In Asia, stocks were also mixed after China reported its growth rate for the third quarter of the year. The 6.5 percent year-on-year figure came in below expectations and is the weakest pace seen since the first quarter of 2009.
