Japanese shares ended lower on Friday as Sino-U.S. tensions heightened following a U.S. ban on transactions with China's tech firms, while a raft of lacklustre domestic earnings and caution ahead of key U.S. jobs data also weighed. Tokyo shares tracked China and Hong Kong stocks lower in the afternoon, as the Trump administration unveiled bans on U.S. transactions with ByteDance's TikTok and Tencent-owned WeChat, stoking fears that a "silicon curtain" is emerging between the two superpowers. U.S. non-farm payroll due later in the day is widely expected to show that jobs creation in the United States slowed in July from the prior month, indicating a resurgence in COVID-19 infections is undermining the world's largest economy.
Japanese shares fell on Friday as the market reacted to a string of disappointing earnings and forecasts, while investors also took a cautious stance ahead of the U.S. non-farm payroll data for July and a long weekend. SUMCO Corp, which produces equipment for making semiconductors, slid 9.77% after reporting a 26.8% decline in its January-September net profit. SUMCO's fall dragged down its peer Advantest Corp by 4.04%, while Screen Holdings Co Ltd and Tokyo Electron Ltd lost 4.01% and 3.2%, respectively.
Japan's benchmark Nikkei fell on Tuesday as investors booked profits after a sharp gain in the previous session, while semiconductor stocks and other high-tech firms took a hit from a weak Nasdaq performance overnight. The benchmark Nikkei share average fell 0.84% to 22,593.27 during the midday break, after hitting a one-month high in the previous session. In the broader market, Topix lost 0.48% to 1,565.49 by the recess, with all but eight of the 33 industry subindexes in the Tokyo Stock Exchange trading in the red.
