US stocks advanced slightly in choppy trading on Thursday after three days of gains, as underwhelming results from tech bellwethers Google and IBM were offset by upbeat quarterly numbers, including those from Morgan Stanley and General Electric. The latest data showed the US economy's health was improving. The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose less than expected in the latest week and came near pre-recession levels

US stocks rose 1 percent on Wednesday, advancing for a third straight session as Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reaffirmed the central bank's commitment to keeping interest rates low and Yahoo rallied. Data showing Chinese economic growth exceeded expectations and US industrial production rose for a second straight month also improved sentiment, though Bank of America and CSX Corp sold off following their results.
Tokyo stocks closed flat Thursday, a day after the Nikkei 225 index posted its sharpest rise in two months, while analysts said there were lingering concerns about the impact of this month's sales tax rise in Japan. The benchmark Nikkei - which soared 3.01 percent on Wednesday - edged down 0.15 points to 14,417.53, while the Topix index of all first-section shares also closed flat, inching up 0.04 points to close at 1,166.59.
Britain's top shares rose to a one-week closing high on Thursday after upbeat US results from Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs drove up financials and allayed investor concerns about the current earnings season. Morgan Stanley shares gained after it unveiled a rise in first-quarter earnings, while Goldman Sachs advanced after it reported an 11 percent drop in profits but beat expectations.
European equities finished higher on Thursday after losing ground earlier in the session, with upbeat results from major US companies like Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and General Electric improving sentiment. Morgan Stanley reported a 55 percent jump in first-quarter earnings, General Electric posted a 12 percent rise in overall industrial profits and both earnings and revenue of Goldman Sachs beat market estimates.
Indian shares rose more than 1.5 percent on Thursday to snap a three-day losing streak as lenders such as ICICI Bank surged on value buying, earnings expectations and hopes of gains in bond portfolios after the central bank's biggest debt auction. Indian government bonds jumped on Thursday, recovering from two sessions of falls, after the central bank fully sold the 200 billion rupees ($3.31 billion) worth of debt on offer.
Hong Kong shares closed 0.28 percent higher on Thursday following a third straight rally on Wall Street. The benchmark Hang Seng Index ended up 64.23 points at 22,760.24 on turnover of HK$42.80 billion (US $5.52 billion). The index added to gains the previous day which came after China said growth in the world's number two economy expanded 7.4 percent year-on-year in January-March.
