Sri Lankan stocks ended little-changed on Monday in thin trade ahead of a holiday, but sentiment was still positive on expectations of strong corporate earnings after market heavyweight John Keells Holdings' upbeat earnings. The main stock index ended 0.01 percent, or 0.63 points, higher at 6,784.27. It has gained 6.4 percent so far this month.

China shares jumped on Monday, with Hong Kong's index hitting its highest close in more than 3-1/2 years, on growing bets that the world's second-largest economy has turned a corner and as investors expect more growth-friendly policies. Helped by some ultra cheap valuations, banks soared after a Reuters report said the country's fifth-biggest bank by assets planned to seek more private investors.
Taiwan stocks were little changed on Monday, underperforming other regional bourses, but the world's No 3 LCD maker Innolux rose ahead of its earnings release later in the day. As of 0220 GMT, the main TAIEX index inched up 0.1 percent to 9,447.01 points, as electronics fell 0.5 percent while banks jumped 0.5 percent. Innolux, an arm of iPhones assembler Foxconn Technology Group, rose almost 2 percent. It is set to release quarterly earnings results and give guidance for the third quarter following the market close. Smaller rival AU Optronics was up 0.7 percent.
Hong Kong's benchmark index finished at its highest level in more than three years on Monday, as Chinese banks jumped after a Reuters report said the country's fifth-biggest bank by assets planned to seek more private investors. The Hang Seng Index closed up 0.9 percent at 24,428.63 points, its strongest since November 2010.
Australian shares dipped 0.1 percent on Monday as weakness on Wall Street and in metal prices was offset by an uptick in gold, though the financials dragged slightly. Investors were mostly sidelined with the S&P/ASX 200 index declining 6.1 points to 5,577.4 at the close. The benchmark slipped 0.1 percent on Friday, but added 0.9 percent for the week.
Thailand's stock index snapped a two-day rising streak, while the Philippine benchmark slipped to a near two-week closing low amid weak economic data and holidays in Southeast Asia. The Thai SET index fell 0.37 percent in a range-bound session dampened by trade data for June which showed imports tumbled sharply from a year earlier.
