TOKYO (AP) — Shares rose in Asia on Monday, cheered by upbeat projections for a global economic rebound that were tempered by worries over expanding coronavirus outbreaks.
Investors were looking ahead to the release of China's economic growth data for April-June, a key indicator for trade, manufacturing and investments with implications for the entire region. Singapore is also releasing GDP data.
Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 climbed 1.7% to 22,675.31. South Korea's Kospi gained 1.2% to 2,176.69. Australia's S&P/ASX 200 added 0.9% to 5,972.40. Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose 0.4% to 25,817.60, while the Shanghai Composite was up 0.6% at 3,404.71.
On Wall Street, stocks had rallied at the end of a week of volatile trading amid worries that rising coronavirus counts may halt the recent upswing in share prices.
While investors are hoping for an improved outlook thanks to the reopening of the Chinese economy following its own early coronavirus outbreaks, share prices are much higher than justified by the numbers, analysts said.
