Nikkei gains for sixth day
(05-29 14:20)

Tokyo stocks extended their winning streak to a sixth straight session on Thursday, but a stronger yen and profit-taking held back the Japanese market's gains.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index edged up 0.07 percent, or 10.77 points, to finish at 14,681.72, while the Topix index of all first-section shares rose 0.21 percent, or 2.51 points, to 1,200.68. --AFP
