LONDON, May 4 (newratings.com) – Capital spending by Japan's business firms rose to a record high in the first quarter, indicating the world's second-largest economy is growing at a faster pace than initially estimated by the government. The Ministry of Finance said in Tokyo on Monday that capital spending climbed to 13.6% in the three months ended March 31, rising for the sixteenth consecutive quarter. Spending on plant and equipment rose to a record high of ¥17.73 trillion in the latest quarter. While spending growth slowed from 16.8% in the three months ended December 2006, it was ahead of average market expectations, easing concerns that capital spending may be losing steam. The ministry survey, based on responses from 19,000 major companies, also showed corporate profits rose 7.4% year-over-year in the first quarter.

Tokyo shares close slightly higher on Wall St's rise, yen's fall - UPDATE TOKYO (XFN-ASIA) - Share prices closed marginally higher, with the benchmark index at its highest finishing level in three months, the market having tracked Wall Street's strong performance overnight as the weaker yen helped export-oriented shares, dealers said. The blue-chip Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed 14.54 points or 0.08 pct higher at 17,973.42, its highest closing level since Feb 27, having touched an intra-day peak of 18,071.80. The TOPIX index of all first-section issues gained 4.96 points or 0.28 pct at 1,772.84, off a high of 1,784.83. Gainers outpaced decliners 913 to 673, with 141 issues flat. Volume rose to 2.55 bln shares from 2.49 bln Friday. Fumiaki Nakanishi, chief strategist at SMBC Friend Securities, said: "Tokyo share prices were supported by the bullish trend of the US stock markets Friday." He added: "Solid economic data in the US support expectations that Japan's exports will gain strength. Although the nation's exports are supported by broader areas such as China and Europe, the US remains a key trading partner for Japan." Dealers said investors had also been encouraged by the yen's further depreciation against the US dollar, because a weaker yen would help the earnings of exporters. "The softer yen is a plus for the international blue chips, particularly," Nakanishi remarked. Shortly before the opening bell, the government announced that its latest survey showed that the combined capital investment of non-financial companies was 13.6 pct higher in the first quarter than a year before, growing for the 16th straight quarter. These data also supported share prices, dealers said. Falls in share prices in China limited the gains here somewhat, but not by much, because investors reacted calmly, dealers said. Steel makers were higher, led by Kobe Steel, which jumped 26 yen or 6.1 pct to 455. Sumitomo Metal Industries rose 23 yen or 3.4 pct to 702 and JFE Holdings was 230 yen or 3 pct higher at 7,790. Among shipbuilding stocks, Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding was up 22 yen or 3.3 pct at 687, Mitsubishi Heavy Industry climbed 17 yen or 2.3 pct to 768 and Kawasaki Heavy Industries advanced 14 yen or 2.9 pct to 498. Shipping shares were higher. Nippon Yusen rose 59 yen or 5.2 pct to 1,193, Mitsui OSK Lines was up 71 yen or 4.2 pct at 1,768 and Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha gained 56 yen or 3.6 pct at 1,591. Takeda Pharmaceutical shed 30 yen or 0.36 pct at 8,270 after the drug maker said Friday it had given up trying to develop a drug combining its Actos diabetes drug and TAK-536 angiotensin receptor blocker after it had found difficulty in mixing the two.

Tokyo shares outlook - Higher on Wall St gains after upbeat data TOKYO (XFN-ASIA) - Share prices are expected to open higher, probably inheriting the positive breadth on Wall Street Friday where the Dow industrials and Standard & Poor's 500 index both reached record levels following the release of data confirming the underlying strength of the US economy, dealers said. US nonfarm payrolls rose by 157,000 last month, a larger increase than in April and more than analysts anticipated, according to the Labor Department. The upbeat employment report came after a lower reading on inflation from the Commerce Department and data from the Institute for Supply Management's May survey, which indicated that the manufacturing sector was strengthening. The continued weakness of the yen is also expected to benefit exporters whose earnings rise when the currency depreciates, dealers said. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up 40.47 points or 0.30 pct at 13,668.11, its 26th record close for the year. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 5.72 or 0.37 pct to 1,536.34, traded as high as 1,540.56 and advanced toward its record trading high of 1,552.87 set in March 2000. The Nasdaq composite index gained 9.40 points or 0.36 pct at 2,613.92. In Chicago, the Nikkei futures contract settled at 18,040 points, up from 17,940 at the Osaka Securities Exchange on Friday, suggesting a strong start for the Tokyo market. On the Tokyo bourse Friday, the Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed up 83.13 points or 0.47 pct at 17,958.88, after surpassing 18,000 for the first time since Feb 27. The TOPIX index of all first-section issues advanced 12.20 points or 0.69 pct to 1,767.88. Ahead in Japan, the Ministry of Finance and the Cabinet Office will report 10 minutes before the opening bell the results of its survey of corporate activities for the three months to March, including capital investment and corporate profits. The Bank of Japan will release monetary base data for May. Stocks to watch include Takeda Pharmaceutical Co after Japan's largest drugmaker said Friday it has discontinued efforts to develop a drug combining its Actos diabetes drug and TAK-536 angiotensin receptor blocker after it found difficulty in mixing the two. Hitachi Ltd may be active on a report that it and US software firm Oracle Corp will begin joint marketing of wireless IC tags in China that can be used to identify genuine products.

This should add confidence to the market Monday NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks extended their advance Friday after the Institute for Supply Management's May survey of its members indicated the manufacturing sector was strengthening. The better-than-expected reading of 55 -- the expectation was 54 -- further boosted investor confidence following a Friday report of stronger-than-expected job creation in May and signs of easing inflation. Wall Street was pleased to see that nonfarm payrolls rose by 157,000 last month, a bigger increase than in April and more than analysts anticipated. The unemployment rate held steady at 4.5 percent, as expected, according to the Labor Department report. In the first hour of trading, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 62.65, or 0.46 percent, to 13,689.89, sending the blue chips further into record territory. Broader stock indicators also gained. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 8.69, or 0.57 percent, to 1,539.31, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 20.93, or 0.80 percent, to 2,625.45.

Tokyo shares close firmer after worry about global sell-off eases - UPDATE (Adds analyst comment, notable share prices) TOKYO (XFN-ASIA) - Share prices closed sharply higher after Wall Street's gains overnight eased concern that the slump in Chinese markets yesterday would spark a global rout like that in February, dealers said. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed 287.49 points or 1.63 pct higher at the day's peak of 17,875.75, its highest closing level since Feb 27, when it settled at 18,119.92. The TOPIX index of all first-section issues advanced 21.93 points or 1.26 pct to 1,755.68, off a high of 1,757.09. Gainers overwhelmed decliners 1,286 to 324, with 118 issues flat. Volume was 2.16 bln shares, down from 2.02 bln yesterday. Mitsushige Akino, chief fund manager at Ichiyoshi Management, said: "The market welcomed the US stock markets' gains overnight, easing worries that sharp losses in Chinese markets yesterday might lead a global sell-off." Akino said markets could avoid another global meltdown in stocks because they had learned from what had happened in February. "As Chinese stock markets are booming, it is no surprise if China's share prices show a certain level of volatility. And the volatility does not necessarily reflect China's real economy," he said. Investors will pay attention to important data about the US economy that are due to be released soon, including the real GDP figure for the first quarter, due later today, and the employment report for this month, due Friday, dealers said. "Since economic conditions are solid in the US, strong economic data would increase the risk of a rate increase, which would be a blow for stock markets. So a situation in which economic conditions remain resilient with the possibility of a rate cut would be favorable for stock markets," he said. Ryuta Otsuka, a strategist at Tokyo Securities, said: "Investors may shrug it off if the US real GDP is weaker than expected, because these data are about the past, while investors are more interested in economic growth in the April-June quarter." Stocks were broadly higher. In the real estate sector, Mitsui Fudosan was up 130 yen or 3.5 pct at 3,830, Mitsubishi Estate rose 110 yen or 3 pct to 3,740 and Sumitomo Realty & Development gained 130 yen or 2.9 pct at 4,600. Stocks of shipping lines were also higher. Nippon Yusen was up 27 yen or 2.5 pct at 1,123, Mitsui OSK Lines climbed 63 yen or 3.9 pct to 1,668 and Kawasaki Kisen rose 31 yen or 2.1 pct to 1,475. Shin-Etsu Chemical rose 250 yen or 3.2 pct to 8,160, Sumitomo Chemical was 15 yen or 1.9 pct higher at 806 and Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings gained 38 yen or 3.7 pct at 1,065.

Not quite as bad as it looks, because the discount has widened a lot. Still, not particularly good! Don't forget it's geared too, so the downside will be worse, any upside should be better.
