Asian Stocks Advance as U.S. Jobless Claims Fall, Yen Weakens
2012-11-22 00:25:19.381 GMT


By Jonathan Burgos
Nov. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks gained, with the
regional benchmark index set for its highest close in two weeks,
as fewer Americans filed for unemployment benefits and a weaker
yen boosted the outlook for Japanese exporters.
Honda Motor Co., a Japanese carmaker that gets about 44
percent of sales from North America, climbed 2.4 percent. Sharp
Corp. advanced 3.1 percent after Japan's largest maker of
liquid-crystal displays said it has found customers for
advanced panels for smartphones and tablets. Woodside Petroleum
Ltd., Australia's second-biggest oil producer, gained 1.5
percent after crude futures rose.
The MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose 0.7 percent to 121.78 as
of 9:19 a.m. in Tokyo before the open of markets in China and
Hong Kong. The measure is poised for its first weekly advance in
three weeks amid better-than-forecast housing data in the U.S.
and signs that Congress can reach a deal on a budget that averts
the so-called fiscal cliff.
"The market has momentum," said Mitsushige Akino, Tokyo-
based chief fund officer at Ichiyoshi Asset Management Co.,
which oversees about 30 billion yen ($364 million). "The yen
may weaken to the 85-yen level against the dollar as
expectations build that the Liberal Democratic Party will take
power after next month's elections."

Asian Stocks Rise Third Day as U.S. Home Sales Beat Estimates

Asian Stocks Rise Third Day as U.S. Home Sales Beat Estimates
2012-11-20 00:36:39.383 GMT


By Jonathan Burgos
     Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks rose, with the regional
benchmark index poised to advance for a third day, as better-
than-forecast U.S. home sales boosted optimism in the world's
largest economy.
     LG Electronics Inc., a South Korean maker of consumer
electronics that gets almost a third of its sales from North
America, climbed 2 percent. Samsung Electronics Co., the world's
No. mobile phone maker, gained 1.2 percent in Seoul after a U.S.
trade agency agreed to review its patent case versus Apple Inc.
BHP Billiton Ltd., the world's biggest mining company, added 1.1
percent in Sydney as metal prices advanced.
     The MSCI Asia Pacific Index gained 0.1 percent to 121.21 as
of 9:34 a.m. in Tokyo, with about two shares rising for each
that fell. Markets in Hong Kong and China are yet to open. The
measure extended its rally for a third day after President
Barack Obama started talks with Republicans and Democrats on a
U.S. budget agreement. Failure to strike a deal will trigger
more than $600 billion in automatic tax increases and spending
cuts that may throw the country into a recession.
     "Confidence is growing that a U.S. budget deal can be
reached, as politicians from both parties continue to make some
positive comments on working together to come up with a
solution," said Stan Shamu, a market strategist at IG Index, a
Melbourne-based provider of trading services for equities,
currencies and commodities. "Better-than-expected existing home
sales data has also helped to lift sentiment."
