The following Spanish stocks may be affected by newspaper reports and other factors on Thursday. Reuters has not verified the newspaper reports, and cannot vouch for their accuracy:
Talisman Energy Inc said on Wednesday it has been approached by Repsol, a day after a report that the Spanish oil producer was considering a bid for Canada's No. 5 oil company.
Repsol is expected to report a 26 percent fall in second-quarter adjusted clean net profit from a year ago, hit by a production shutdown in Libya.
Spanish gas and electricity firm Gas Natural Fenosa is expected to report a 3.6 percent fall in first-half core profit from a year ago, depressed by a regulatory hit in Spain and weaker currencies in its Latin American markets.
Wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa and insurer Mapfre report first half earnings.
Banco Sabadell is expected to post second-quarter profit up nearly 9 percent compared to a year ago, as the lender's net income from lending improves and it emerges alongside peers from a deep financial crisis.
Bankinter is expected to post a 27 percent rise in second-quarter net profit compared to a year ago, thanks to improving net lending income and tracking banking peers to emerge from a deep financial crisis.
