Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks were mixed on Monday as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq advanced but the Dow fell as quarterly results from IBM disappointed. IBM shares slumped 7.5 percent to $168.46 as the biggest drag on both the Dow and S&P 500 after third-quarter earnings fell well short of Wall Street expectations. IBM abandoned its 2015 operating earnings target and said it would pay Globalfoundries $1.5 billion over three years to take its loss-making semiconductor unit.

Tokyo stocks jumped 3.98 percent on Monday, notching up their biggest one-day points gain in over a year following a sharp rise on Wall Street and as a weaker yen boosted exporters. The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange, which had closed at a five-month low on Friday, rose 578.72 points to 15,111.23 - the largest one-day points gain since June 2013. The broader Topix index of all first-section shares jumped 4.0 percent, or 47.12 points, to end at 1,224.34.
Britain's top equity index resumed its fall on Monday, giving back half the gains made in the previous session, as investors reckoned with reduced earnings expectations for oil companies after a slump in oil prices. The bluechip FTSE 100 index closed down 43.22 points, or 0.7 percent, at 6,267.07 points, after rising 114 points on Friday.
European stocks fell on Monday, trimming gains made in the previous session, as a profit warning by SAP hit technology shares. Shares in the German business software maker plunged 5.8 percent after it cut its outlook for full-year operating profit, joining a succession of profit and sales warnings from tech groups in the past few weeks. The STOXX 600 Technology index fell 2.4 percent.
Indian shares rose more than 1 percent on Monday to mark their biggest daily gain in more than one week after the government's energy reforms led to a rally in oil firms, while wins by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party in two state elections raised expectations for more reforms. Removal of diesel price controls and a rise in natural gas prices provided much needed credibility to Modi's reform agenda, which had come under scrutiny as mere promises, some investors said.
Hong Kong shares climbed 0.20 percent on Monday in line with a regional rally, following healthy gains on Wall Street that were fuelled by bargain-buying. The Hang Seng Index added 47.05 points to 23,070.26 on turnover of HK$53.01 billion ($6.84 billion). Focus now turns to the release Tuesday of Chinese economic growth data for July-September.
Australian and New Zealand shares rose around 1 percent on Monday, buoyed by takeover activity and improved sentiment after a solid round of US data and earnings calmed investor nerves over signs of weakening global growth. In Australia, financial stocks and diversified metals and mining firms underpinned the market. The S&P/ASX 200 index climbed 51.6 points to a three-week peak of 5,325.8 by 0117 GMT, adding to a 0.4 percent gain on Friday.
