Shanghai Composite is the biggest loser in the region - profit taking after an otherwise impressive week has set in as investors fret that strong demand for IPOs today would dilute the index valuations and detract from other securities. The selling was undeterred despite comments from Premier Li calling for measures to counter downside pressure on economy building from slowing fixed asset investment. Recall this week's data showed property investment growth slowing to a 6-year low.- Korea's Kospi was also a notable decliner, reversing the opening gains after Bank of Korea policy decision saw no change in rates. BOK reiterated that output gap would persist for some time but was also somewhat more hawkish, noting economy is showing signs of recovery and sentiment has improved. One board member dissented, but BOK Gov Lee expressed more concern over rising household debt that is likely being fuelled by low rates. BOK also noted that weak JPY still poses an impediment to Korean exports.- Nikkei225 outperformed, tracking weaker JPY with USD/JPY rising about 30pips toward 119.50. With the effect of consumption tax rolling off in May, wholesale inflation fell sharply to -2.2%, which does not bode well for CPI figures in late May. Despite the warning signs, BOJ Gov Kuroda reiterated that no further easing is required at this time, but also noted the central bank will not hesitate to adjust policy. Kuroda added that exports are finally on the rise.- In other USD majors, the greenback firmed against NZD after reports that Fonterra reduced the volumes of GDT auctions on sliding demand. NZD/USD fell nearly 50pips to $0.7450 on the news, while AUD/USD tracked with a 40pip drop below $0.8050.***Equities***Notable US equities / ADRs after-hours:- BSQR: Reports Q1 $0.15 v $0.03 y/y, R$26.3M v $25.6M y/y; +33.0% afterhours - AMAT: Reports Q2 $0.29 v $0.28e, R$2.44B v $2.40Be; +3.2% afterhours - SYMC: Reports Q4 $0.43 v $0.44e, R$1.55B v $1.56Be; Guides Q1 $0.41-0.44 v $0.46e, R$1.50-1.54B v $1.64Be; -2.5% afterhours - WB: Reports Q1 $0.01 v -$0.03 y/y, R$96.3M v $67.5M y/y; Guides Q2 R$102-105M v $110Me; -3.9% afterhours - KING: Reports Q1 $0.61 v $0.54e, R$570M v $592Me; -10.3% afterhours - LOCO: Reports Q1 $0.18 v $0.17e, R$90.4M v $88.4Me; -13.1% afterhours Asia movers by sector:- Materials: MTS.AU Metcash +11% (Hires advisor on strategic review and possible IPO of automotive division)- Consumer Discretionary: 4324.JP Dentsu +13% (FY14/15 results)- Tech: 7731.JP Nikon -12.7% (FY14/15 results); 6753.JP Sharp -9% (FY14/15 results) - Source
