Japanese shares post 4th weekly gain on catch-up trade, chipmakers boost

Sep 17, 2021

Author of the article: Article content TOKYO — Japanese shares closed higher on Friday to post their fourth straight weekly gain, as heavyweight chipmakers jumped, and some investors caught up on a recent rally. Hopes from the new leadership, rising COVID-19 vaccinations and easing infections have powered a 8.58% jump in the Nikkei share average for the month so far. Despite a fall in the past two sessions, the index is still ending with a 0.39% weekly gain, marking an increase for fourth straight week. We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

Advertisement Article content “Shares rose because some investors wanted to boost weightings of Japanese stocks in their portfolio. And there’s demand from those who failed to buy Japanese stocks in a rally earlier this month,” said Jun Morita, general manager of the research department at Chibagin Asset Management. Medical services platform provider M3 led the Nikkei’s gain with a 4.91% rise, followed by chip-related stocks Tokyo Electron and Advantest, which rose 1.24% and 2.44%, respectively. Shipping firms were the top gainers among the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s 33 industry subindexes, with Nippon Yusen jumping 2.88% and Kawasaki Kisen rising 4.24%. Airlines and railways also advanced 1.67% and 1.16%, respectively. On the flipside, Nippon Steel tumbled 5.96% after the steel maker priced https://www.nipponsteel.com/common/secure/en/news/20210917_100.pdf its 300 billion yen ($2.73 billion) worth of convertible bonds. Its peers Kobe Steel and JFE Holdings lost 3.79% and 2.34%, respectively. Game maker Nintendo gained the most among the top 30 core Topix names, followed by SoftBank Group, which rose 1.82%. Hoya Corp, down 2.29%, was the worst performer among the Topix 30, followed by Mitsui & Co, losing 1.7%.
