Nikkei climbs 1.2 pct after touching 6-month low

TOKYO, May 27 (BestGrowthStock) – Japan’s Nikkei average came off a
six-month low to jump 1.2 percent on Thursday in its best one-day
performance in two weeks, with a weakening of the yen against the
euro helping counter persistent concern about Europe’s debt
crisis.

Sony Corp (6758.T: ) rose 2.1 percent to 2,788 yen, Canon Inc
(7751.T: ) also climbed 2.1 percent to 3,680 yen, and Honda Motor
Co (7267.T: ) gained 1.2 percent to 2,775 yen. All started the day
in negative territory.

The benchmark Nikkei (.N225: ) rose 117.06 points to 9,639.72
after falling as low as 9,395.29 in early trade, its lowest since
early December. The broader Topix (.TOPX: ) gained 1.3 percent to
869.89.
