Nikkei finishes lower on profit-taking
(07-03 14:11)

Tokyo stocks closed down 0.14 percent on Thursday, giving up early gains as profit-taking offset another record close on Wall Street, although the weaker yen supported exporter shares.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index edged down 21.68 points to 15,348.29. The Topix index of all first-section shares lost 0.17 percent, or 2.19 points, to 1,278.59. --AFP
