Stocks and Bonds


Taiwan stocks declined on Thursday, tracking falls in overseas markets led by broad-based losses, while some investors locked in profits from recent gains. As of 0331 GMT, the main TAIEX index was down 0.6 percent at 9,315.21, after finishing down 0.3 percent in the previous session. The electronics subindex dipped as much as 0.7 percent, while the financials subindex lost as much as 0.2 percent.

Hong Kong shares fell on Thursday as investors were spooked by an unexpectedly sharp drop in China's industrial profits. The Hang Seng index fell 0.8 percent, to 23,132.35, while the China Enterprises Index lost 0.9 percent, to 9,608.91 points. Most sectors were down, led by energy stocks. China's CNOOC fell to a week low after it reported a 15-percent drop in Q3 revenue, pushing lower the shares in the other two oil giants Sinopec and PetroChina, while profit-taking in coal stocks after recent strong gains dragged on the sector. Great Wall Motor shed 4.3 percent, tumbling as much as 16.5 percent in two straight sessions as HSBC and Nomura cut its ratings after it reported Q3 results.
Australian shares closed at its lowest in a month on Thursday, after doubts over Opec's ability to organise a co-ordinated production cut weighed on oil prices, and National Australia Bank's positive results were unable to soothe sentiment. The S&P/ASX 200 index ended 1.2 percent, or 64.3 points, lower to 5295.5.
Banking shares that were beaten down earlier this month by fears of slowing economic growth in the region boosted several Gulf stock markets on Thursday, despite weakness in Asian bourses and oil prices. The Saudi bank sector has been strong since last week's big international bond sale by the government partly eased fears of a liquidity drought in the economy.
